If your looking to upgrade your Mercedes-Benz E-Class, then you need to consider the LUMMA Design Mercedes E50 CLR from the car tuning specialists. They bring to the table several aesthetic modifications, as well as performance enhancements under the hood. Adding to the already sporty look of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a new exterior car styling kit that includes a new front bumper with integrated daytime running lights, side skirts, and new vented front fenders. Along with the new body kit pieces, the Mercedes E50 CLR features a front lip, sporty rear valance bumper, and optional diffuser for the rear. The trunk lid received an integrated rear spoiler made of aluminum from LUMMA Design, and an elongated changeover to the bumper made of carbon fiber.
The latest tuning project from MWDesign is the elegant Aston Martin V8 Vantage nicknamed “Helvellyn Frost“, which has been tuned to perfection. Exclusive styling, improved aerodynamics, and enhanced performance make this Aston Martin an easy choice for buyers. First, MWDesign created a digital concept to test it. Then they went with aftermarket suspension and wheels, that include adjustable H&R suspension for proper ride height, and M14 forged wheels that come wrapped in high performance Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. The tires measure 255/35/20 in the front, and 285/25/20 in the rear. Performance gains are accomplished by installing a race exhaust system, high flow 200 cell catalysts, and ECU software tuning. After these modifications, the MWDesign Aston Martin V8 Vantage is capable of producing 445 horsepower. It is also noted that this stunning Aston Martin Vantage has a unique and powerful sound from the handbuilt V8 engine. Final touches include painting the side vents, front grille, window trims, and truck lip section matte black to match the wheels and contrast the Helvellyn Frost paint color.
The car tuning engineers at Manhart Racing have revealed a powerful version of the BMW Z4 with a 5.0-liter V10 engine producing 550 horsepower. That is more than a 200 hp increase from the factory 343 hp, and allows the car to sprint from 0-100 km/h in only 3.9 seconds. Along with the new 5.0-liter engine swap are new catalytic converters and a customized DME electronic control unit. To accomodate the large V10, the Manhart Racing BMW Z4 received an M5 E60 6 gear manual transmission, M5 E60 differential, and a Fichtel and Sachs clutch. Fitted underneath is an AC Schnitzer stainless steel exhaust system, and the new catalytic converters are from the HJS racing series. Trying to keep the ten cyclinders glued to the pavement are 235/35 ZR19 tires in the front, 285/30 ZR19 tires in the rear, which come mounted on black BBS Challenge wheels.

The guys from Graham Goode Racing (GGR), who specialize on Ford cars have modified the Ford Focus RS with a new engine tuning kit dubbed the RS 340. The new program from GGR requires no extra mechanical work, because the package is strictly a ECU tuning upgrade. Using the Superchips platform on the Ford Focus RS 340, GGR was able to increase the performance numbers to 340 bhp at 5,600 rpm, and 397 ft lbs of torque at 3,100 rpm. The Superchips platform is really unique however, because it lets the customers store the factory ECU mapping for future use if needed, while allowing GGR to perform additional remapping for bigger performance gains. GGR is already a leading Superchips provider, and these significant improvements will push them to offer this package to the Ford enthusiast market.
