Schmidt Nissan 370Z Light Tune Up

Sunday, April 17th, 2011:

A modest tuning package for the Nissan 370Z has been released by the German tuners Schmidt Revolution. No engine modifications are present, however the Nissan received new styling for the exterior, sound improvements, and better handling. First, is the addition of the three-piece alloy rims available in either 20 or 21-inch models. They come wrapped in Hankook high performance tires and are priced at €5,999 (US$8,680). Next, a sport exhaust system gives the 370Z a deeper sound and allows the engine to breathe easy.

MOTION Chevy Camaro Phase III Packs a Punch

Saturday, April 16th, 2011:

Here is the 2011 MOTION Chevy Camaro Phase III that was on display at the Super Chevy Show in Palm Beach, Florida. It was held at the Florida International Raceway last weekend, and this car packs a real punch with a GM LS7 427 aluminum block engine holding a 2.8-liter Twin-Screw Supercharger producing 800 horsepower. The Camaro creation comes from the partnership of tuners Joel Rosen and Howard Tanner of Redline Motorsports. Rosen created the Baldwin-Motion 427 and 454 Camaros, while saying, “Back in the day we built record-setting 500-horsepower big-block Camaros and backed them up with warranties. My new 427-SC delivers 300 more horsepower…And, it has a one-year, 12,000-mile warranty.”

Car Crash – Underground Racing Lamborghini Gallardo

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011:

This car crash happened at a Caffeine and Octane car show in Georgia last weeked, where the owner of this insane Underground Racing Lamborghini Gallardo convertible spun out and then blamed it on his shoe. We have a hard time believing the shoe caused this crash because this car has some good brakes, and a shoe coming apart wouldn’t have enough pressure to push the accelerator to the floor. However, the tuning company Underground Racing are known for their high horsepower Lamborghini creations, so this is expected every now and then. Luckily the damage isn’t too bad, and should be easily repairable. Several of the tuners projects have outputs of over 1,000 horspower, including this beast seen in the video. We’re just glad no one was injured, and that the car has a quick recovery. Hit the jump to see the video and more pictures.

Edo Competition Koenigsegg CCR

Monday, April 11th, 2011:

Check out this Koenigsegg CCR, a supercar that already has a ridiculous amount of power from the factory, just received some more. The owner of this high performance car felt the power could be increased further, so he hired Edo Competition to boost the figures. At the tuning shop, the guys from Edo modified the drive ratio and installed a reprogrammed ECU. This allows the 4.7-liter supercharged V8 engine to produce 891 PS or 879 horsepower. What’s odd is the fact that the extra power reduced the top speed to 390 km/h or 242 mph. It most likely came from the Edo tuners replacing the plastic bushings in the transmission with Uniball parts to improve the acceleration. Final customizations include Alcantara upholstery inside the sports car, a modified center console, new entertainment system, and a tire pressure monitoring system with the display on the dashboard. If only all of us could afford a CCR by the Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg, the world would be a happy place.

Nissan GTR ADV10 Deep Concave Wheels

Saturday, April 9th, 2011:

Sometimes all you need to tune up your car is a new set of wheels. Take this Nissan GTR for example, sporting a brand new set of ADV10 Deep Concave rims wrapped in low profile tires. It doesn’t take a thousand mods to make your car unique, however a few thousands dollars can get you a completely different look in just about a hour from any wheel specialist. Just look at this Nissan GT-R, not a single aftermarket part was installed besides the wheels, and it looks stunning. Props to the guys from ADV for this wheel design measuring 21×10.5 up front, and 21×12.5 at the rear. Like the saying goes, “less is more” it’s good to spend the extra buck for a nice set of rims, you usually won’t be disappointed.

Here is the latest tuning work from the guys at GeigerCars, based on the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.

It comes equipped with a supercharger, reprogrammed ECU, and stainless steel exhaust system allowing the Mustang sports car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 295 km/h (183 mph). However, that’s not all of the tuning it received, the car didn’t get the Golden Snake nickname for no reason.
