The Monza-based tuning company Aznom has taken the Fiat 500 Abarth back to it rear-engine design days with their model called the Motore Centrale. This mid-rear mounted powerplant now produces 230 PS and 330 Nm of torque, while the weight has been reduced to 1050 kg. This allows the Fiat 500 to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 240 km/h. Performance tuning for the Fiat Motore Centrale consists of a new Garrett turbocharger, 200-cell catalyst, and new injectors to handle the extra air. A Bilstein suspesnion package was installed for improved handling with this Fiat tuning kit, however hit the jump to see the video of the car trying to drift, because it doesn’t turn out so well.
The Russian car tuning firm ArmorTech has stretched out the Bentley Mulsanne up to 45-inches. Great Britain’s luxury flagship car can start off with just a 20-inch stretch of the wheelbase, and ArmorTech can also raise the Bentley roof 100 mm or 3.9-inches. To go along with the stretch, upgrades to the brakes, chassis, and suspension were needed to keep everything in working order. Since AmorTech specializes in armored cars, the Bentley Mulsanne can definitely receive these additions, however it is still optional for this stretch. Customizations to the interior include a new multimedia system for navigation, music, and phone connections, while a unique interior design was used with a partition wall.
After Prior Design just released a kit for the Bentley Continental, we now have a new tuning package for the Mercedes E-Class Coupe. Included in the kit are new bumpers, redesigned side skirts, rear diffuser, and optional roof spoiler. Performance tuning came into account for the 75 horsepower gain from the sport exhaust installation and ECU remapping. In the four corners are unique gold wheels, however the tuners also offer matte black, gloss block, or silver for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Lastly, the now made sports car was lowered 35 mm while fitting the 20-inch wheels for an aggressive stance and improved handling.
The tuners at AHG Sports have turned the Infiniti FX30dS into a Porsche Cayenne competitor with their new performance kit.

These numbers are up from the factory Infiniti FX30dS specs of 283 PS and 550 Nm of torque. The Infiniti tuning company then went with new wheels on the FX30dS measuring 21-inches and wrapped in 295/40R21 tires. The cost of the wheel set is a pricey €7,900, but you will receive the 3-piece CC rims from Schmidt Revolution. Finally, AHG Sports added lowering springs to drop the Infiniti FX30dS suspension 25 mm for a price of €1,495 with installation included.
All I can say is wow, Vorsteiner has just released these pictures of their upcoming BMW 5-Series VMS F10 package and it looks stunning.
