The car tuning company Elite brings us the Aston Martin LMV/R (Le Mans Vantage Racer) which will be limited to only 30 cars. This is a real racecar on the street, and a very unique vehicle based off the Aston Martin Vantage. Elite was able to lighten the car by replacing the factory body panels with carbon fiber, and they made it more powerful as well. For the exterior they went with a carbon fiber new front bumper, carbon canards, carbon front splitter, wider fenders, side skirts, wider rear corner panels, new rear bumper, carbon diffuser, and carbon fiber wing. Elite chose larger 20 inch matte black wheels to fit the wide body kit Aston Martin LMV/R, then lowered the car with new springs, and installed a big brake kit to handle the performance increases.
The Ferrari Enzo XX is the latest work from car tuning specialists Edo Competition, delivering an estimated 800 hp and 780 Nm of torque. The new tuning kit gives the Ferrari a complete engine makeover by adding new steel cylinders, pistons, camshafts, valve springs, and Titan connecting rods. Naming it the XX, the Ferrari Enzo by Edo Competition also features new oil cooling piston pipes, oil pump, exhaust manifolds, aftermarket clutch, and an air-ram system with carbon fiber air intake and new filter. Additional modifications include a carbon-ceramic braking system and new fuel cooling system. The Ferrari Enzo XX rides on black racing wheels with large Michelin high performance tires. An exciting change for the Ferrari is a stainless steel catalytic converter that allows the driver to choose between two different exhaust notes, and it is controlled by a switch mounted on the dashboard.
Here is one of the latest works from the German car tuning firm ABT Sportsline, the Audi S4 that comes from the factory with a 3.0-liter TFSI engine. ABT decided the stock performance numbers weren’t enough, so they tuned the engine to output 435 hp from the factory 333 horsepower. Along with the horsepower upgrades, torque was increased as well, and now has bragging rights of 520 Nm of torque from the stock 440 Nm. The car has new track speeds to go along with the tuning, and can sprint from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, compared to the 5.1 seconds before any modifications. ABT Sportsline adjusted the electronic limiter on the Audi S4 that allows the car to reach a top speed of 282 km/h or 175 mph. They explained later on that the reason they can increase the electronic limiter is because the engine is not supplied with a V-max limit, or top speed limit. Styling modifications for the Audi S4 include a 4 pipe exhaust system that adds to the sporty look and contributes to the aggressive appearance.
Aiming to increase performance numbers, Mcchip has taken the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and upgraded the ECU based off of the 200CDI model. From the factory the Mercedes C-Class outputs 136 PS and 270 Nm of torque, but after some car tuning it produces 170 PS and 350 Nm of torque. The Mcchip-DKR Mercedes-Benz C-Class has top speed of 219 km/h, and the ECU tuning is priced at 570 euros. That is a small price considering it increases the performance numbers by around 20%. As an option from Mcchip, the customers can also choose to have the car lowered, and fitted with 19 or 20 inch wheels as you see pictured.
The latest work from Reiter Engineering is focused on the street performance of the Lamborghini Murcielago Strada concept. Tuning the already good looks of the Lamborghini Murcielago car, the Strada concept features a new front splitter, rear diffuser, and rear wing made of carbon fiber. The interior comes with custom seats designed by Reiter and are wrapped with original Alcantara leather. To go along with the high class appearance, the Lamborghini Murcielago has a racing brake kit setup with super light alloy wheels installed and labeled by Reiter. They also offer an optional rollcage to increase the driving experience, and that comes with Alcantara leather around the piping. For safety, but more for looks in my opinion, they added a fire extinguisher to the roll cage that is wrapped in carbon fiber. Finally, the piece that Reiter Engineering focused on to attract customers is the sound of the exhaust system on the Lamborghini Murcielago Strada concept.
