German car tuning company Edo Competition is well known for exotic car projects, however this time they stuck with a more practical budget customizing the BMW M5 Touring model. Calling it the BMW M5 Dark Edition, performance tuning for the 5.0-liter V10 engine consists of a reprogrammed ECU, new air filters, catalytic converters, and a high performance sport exhaust system. This results in a power increase from the factory 500 HP and 521 Nm of torque to 555 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque. On the race track it is capable of a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in just 4.2 seconds while reaching a top speed of 305 km/h.

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.
Edo Competition always brings their best work to the table, this time with a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, tuned to produce 750 horsepower and called the LP750. The most notable mention is the fact it can reach a top speed of 365 km/h or 227 mph. At the track, it was able to reach 100 km/h or 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds, 200 km/h in 9.7 seconds, and 300 km/h in 24.5 seconds. Customizations include modified cylinders, new intake system, hand-made manifold, revised air ducts, new free flow air filters, a high performance exhaust system, and a re-calibrated ECU to handle all these aftermarket parts. The exhaust system also features plasma coated stainless steel, and an optional remote controlled butterfly valve system.
The amazing Edo Aston Martin DBS, a creation by Edo Competition, has finally been released after a serious tuning extravaganza. Created originally for a Russian car enthusiast, this 5-year old Aston Martin DB9 had to go through a total transformation. Fitted with a newly designed inner and outer dress, Edo added some serious upgrades in the performance category, and a top of the line audio entertainment system. As far as looks go, Edo designers fitted massive DBS sports, 20-inch five double-spoke wheels. They also added a max-flow carbon spoiler and rear diffuser along with new sleek side skirts for a serious look.
Edo Competition added another luxury sports car to their list of tuning projects when they released the all new Aston Martin DBS. Offering more power, agility, and comfort, the tuners new program for the Aston Martin is set to satisfy all customers.
