Aston Martin tuning information with articles and pictures about modified Aston Martin cars for Aston Martin tuning enthusiasts.
Here is the latest work from German tuners Wheelsandmore on the Aston Martin Vanquish. They have installed a new set of rims and offer several different styles to fit customers needs. For this sports car, the 20 and 21-inch three-piece forged alloy rims fit well, but Wheelsandmore also have carbon fiber rims for those who can afford them. As for the performance tuning, a slight tweak was made under the hood with the factory software, while a sport exhaust system was hooked up underneath.
The German tuners at Wheelsandmore have done it again, this time with the Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition. They start off with an engine tune that consists of F1 sport air filters, a catalytic converter neutralization kit and flap controlled exhaust system. These modifications increase the output from the factory 517 PS and 570 Nm of torque to 557 PS and 660 Nm of torque.
Yes, that name is correct, the latest work from DMC is called the Fakhuna and based on the Aston Martin DBS. Definitely original, but somewhat not fitting, tuning companies worldwide have had some interesting names in the past. This project is no different, and has been designed by Dutch artist Wildspeed who has released several unique renderings over the years.
Most Toyota Supra owners spend their time tricking out the 2JZ-GTE engine to hit the 1,000 horsepower milestone, however the British owner of this car decided to turn it into a replica of an Aston Martin DBS sports car. We guess he was a big fan of the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, since that car was constantly in the spotlight. With the low resolution pictures from the eBay UK auction it’s hard to tell how good the quality of the body is, yet it looks like it could fool the average bystander.
For those who spent a ton of money on the Aston Martin Cygnet, which is basically a Toyota iQ twin, we have some aftermarket parts from Project Kahn. Don’t feel too bad if you spent two to three times more for basically the same car as the iQ, because the Kahn tuners are now focusing their attention on the small hybrid. Sure, the Aston Martin Cygnet has the cool front grille, luxurious interior and name brand that the Toyota iQ doesn’t, but in the end it still looks like a Smart car. Now if you’re still intersted, turn to Project Kahn to see what accessories they offer.
For those interested in seeing how a car wrapping project goes down, hit the jump to see Dartz wrap up this Aston Martin DBS in a time lapse video. The customers car received a matte red satin vinyl car wrap which completely transformed the look of the luxury saloon. That’s not all it received though. Before arriving at Dartz, the owner had his Aston Martin DBS hooked up by the world renowned car tuning company Mansory. They installed a complete body kit, Mansory alloy wheels, customized the interior, and upgraded the entertainment system as well.
Here is the latest car tuning project brought to us by Anderson Germany, based on the stunning Aston Martin DBS. Called the Superior Black Edition, it looks like the tuners did a great job all around, starting with the carbon mirrors, dark tinted windows, and matte black frames making it unique. The wheels you see here are 21-inch gloss black rims wrapped in 255 width tires at the front, and 295 width at the rear. Bright red brake calipers go well with the sinister looks of this Aston Martin DBS. Performance tuning came next.
The debut of the Aston Martin Vantage S happened at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, showcasing the most powerful Vantage yet. Aston Martin was able to record video footage of the sports car on the Spanish Ascari Race Resort. This occured before the first journalists even got their hands on the Aston Martin Vantage S. In the end, the new model bridges the gap between the V8 Vantage and the strong V12 Vantage RS version.
Secret Entourage sent us these pictures of their Aston Martin Vantage V8 project, which received a few aftermarket parts. Carbon fiber work was performed by the guys at Vantage Collection, and the exterior was customized with the V1 Carbon Fiber Splitter and the V2 Rear Diffuser. Since Aston Martin cars are known for a lack of power, the 4.3-liter V8 producing 380 horsepower was quickly modified to boost the figures. Stuart from RSC Tuning handled the job, and started with the Power Pack C, consisting of a new exhaust, 200 cell cats, air intakes, and an ECU tune. Secret Entourage highly recommends the tuning and new catalytic converters for any Aston Martin owner, as this project was able to push the Vantage closer to the 500 hp mark. Hit the jump to see the video and more photos.
The US tuning company D2Forged usually specializes in wheel packages, but have now released a complete kit for the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. This one definitely got our attention, and is one of the better looking Aston Martin’s we’ve seen. But then again, what V8 Vantage doesn’t look good? D2Forged was able to make the car more aggressive with aftermarket body pieces, new wheels, and a lowering kit. The aftermarket parts include a carbon fiber front lip and carbon fiber rear diffuser delivered by RSC Tuning.
