Every year the Essen Motor Show is full of surprises whether it be the astounding modified cars, or the hot show car girls. No matter where you look while at the show, you will be sure to come across a finely tuned exotic with sexy car babes posing in front at some point. Even though it takes place in Europe, this gives us a look at what the European car girls have to offer when compared to the American SEMA Show Car Girls. Hopefully there will be more pictures of the beautiful women and cars to surface on the web, and once they do we’ll have them for you. In the meantime, be sure to check out the several other photos of the Show Car Babes.
Here we have a sneak peak from the Berlin based tuners at MEC Design in which they have mocked up the future tuning program for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The new Mercedes Gullwing is set to launch in the spring of 2010, and these designs of the SLS AMG show it is capable of extreme styling. The kit looks incredible, very aggressive, but still maintains the high class look of a Mercedes all wrapped into one unique package. MEC Design started off with giant 22″ three-piece mecxtremel wheels, removed the Mercedes logo above the grille, and started designing the bumpers. Completely redesigning the front, side, and rear bumpers, MEC really transformed this Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG into being capable of an award winning show car.
The tuning specialists at MTM have released a custom program for the Audi S5 Cabrio to increase performance by adding a supercharger. This is said to give the Audi S5 “maximized pleasure and comfort to the open air driving fans,” while tuners say it is the “most beautiful car” that was designed by Walter de Silva. Transforming the car is the supercharged engine, a wheel package, lowering kit, and sporty seats. MTM kept the stock Audi S5 Cabrio 3.0-liter TFSI V6 quattro engine in place, but hooked it up with their special M-Cantronic, and V-Cantronic modules. The results are amazing with a 100 horsepower increase over the stock numbers, to reach a total output of 430 hp and 515 Nm of torque.
A while back GeigerCars unleashed a performance package for the Ford GT that featured a 3.3-liter supercharger producing 701 hp and 837 Nm of torque. Now they bring to the table a larger, 4.0-liter supercharged engine that also comes with a sport air filter, new throttle valves, re-tuned electronics, and a more efficient cooling system. This Ford GT received the nickname Geiger HP 790 from GeigerCars since the performance numbers show 790 hp and 863 Nm of torque from the 5.4-liter V8 motor. All the extra power under the hood allows the Ford GT to run a 0-100 km/h time in 3.6 seconds, 0-300 km/h in 22.8 seconds, and claim a top speed of 360 km/h.
The car tuning company at Wimmer RS released their latest modified version of the Ferrari F430 Scuderia that will be on display at the Essen Motor Show. A new power kit was developed by Wimmer RS, which includes the Wimmer engine control software and the addition of an aftermarket exhaust system. Performance numbers saw an increase of 38 hp with a maximum speed boost of 11 km/h to reach a total 321 km/h. The Wimmer RS Ferrari F430 Scuderia track numbers were excellent, with times showing it can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in only 3.84 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 11.03 seconds, and 0-300 km/h in 34.9 seconds.
