Here is the latest tuning job performed by MTM on the new Audi R8 V10 Biturbo. It will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show next week, and most likely blind all the camera’s with the chrome exterior. If you ever plan on wrapping your car in chrome, or painting it a bright color, you always need to remember that you will be drawing attention to traffic cops in your modified car. You better hope that your car is faster than the police cars, so that they won’t feel the need to chase you since you will be long gone by the time they start. This custom Audi R8 V10 produces 766 horsepower and 888 Nm of torque, with a predicted top speed of over 360 km/h once the tuning is completed. As it sits right now, the Audi R8 was able to reach 347.6 km/h, reported by the MotorVision.de website.
We don’t often review motorcycles, however the famous car tuners at Mansory have put together a custom build called the Zapico. Featuring more carbon fiber than a typical tuned car, the Mansory Zapico is one unique bike. Partnering with motorcycle specialist Thomas M. George, the project includes carbon fiber inserts literally from end-to-end, along with odd side mirrors and a luxe leather seat. Some aftermarket parts not made of carbon are the fuel tank, spoiler, and rear fender made of aluminum. Not only does this motorcyle look amazing, but it is pretty quick as well. At the track, the Mansory Zapico motorcycle can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. This power comes from the 2.0-liter V2 engine producing 160 PS or 158 horsepower. The engine was supplied by the American company S&S, while the bike also received a new set of rims measuring 18×3.5 in the front, and 18×10 at the rear.
Here is a stunning Maserati Quattroporte, and the tuners from Wald International have improved it with their Black Bison line of styling kits. Included in the package is a new bumper, carbon fiber front splitter, and LED daytime running lights up front. At the rear you will find a revised bumper, roof-mounted spoiler, trunk-mounted spoiler, and chrome exhaust system. The headlights and taillights on the Maserati Quattroporte have also been blacked out to continue the white and black theme with the new wheels. It’s also fitted with new aero side skirts and reasonably priced. Minus the new wheels, the Black Bison kit for the Maserati is priced at ¥870,000 (€7,735 or $10,650) however the aftermarket parts are also available separately.
The tuning firm Vilner has modified several American and European cars, but have now turned to the Japanese model Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X. With this unique project, the Bulgarian tuners partnered up with the guys from Overdrive, who took on the performance package. The exterior and interior custom parts were handled by Vilner, who upgraded the standard Lancer’s headlights and taillights with new LED units. Inside, the tuning studio gave the Lancer EVO X a black leather upholstery makeover with white stitching and accents throughout. Alcantara lines the roof, while carbon fiber trim is found on the shifter and steering wheel. A set of OMP front bucket seats and piano black trim round out the mods inside. See the videos for yourself after the jump.
Check out the 2011 Porsche Cayenne Titan EVO-XL 600, the latest offering from the SpeedART tuning company. It will be unveiled in March at the Geneva Motor Show, instead of the more expected Essen Motor Show. The Cayenne Titan EVO-XL may remind consumers of a previous car, and indeed the XL is a hint that it is the Titan EVO in a wider-body version. We’re not to sure about the exterior graphics on this Porsche, however the performance numbers speak for themselves. Hit the jump for more information and pictures.
