Typically when cars and girls come together for a photo shoot, the ladies are just trying to get their name on the map and don’t really have a connection with the car. There is one exception to this theory, which brings us 23-year-old Miss Yamaha 2012 and Monster Energy Girl Andrea Friedrich. She has received her “A” racing license and will participate in upcoming events such as the GLP series and Nürburgring VLN in this BBM Motorsport tuned Volkswagen Golf GTI V.
Check out this Ducati Monster 1100 EVO that has been tuned by Vilner. While we don’t cover motorcycles often, we are going to add a new bike section for all the motorcycle tuning enthusiasts. This project comes shortly after the BMW F800 R motorcycle received a tune from Vilner. Similar to that project, this Ducati features new aluminum on the front end, a new headlamp and a shortened rear end to go along with the custom paint.
Without a doubt, sex sells and is one of the reasons many enthusiasts out there spend so much time and money tuning their cars. The guys from Inden Design have used this method to promote a new package for the sleek Mercedes SLS AMG with German model Katja Runiello. For the true car fans, the tuning kit is modest in the performance department with a minor boost for the 6.3-liter V8 powerplant. After the ECU optimization, the Mercedes sports car now puts down 614 horses, a decent jump from the factory 563 horsepower.
At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti has released the latest Veyron varaint called the Grand Sport Vitesse. This amazing super car is claimed to be fastest roadster in the world, without tuning of course. We recall the standard Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport was limited to 217 mph. The new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse received four larger turbochargers to give it 1,200 horsepower and 1106 lb-ft of torque, capable of reaching 229 mph from the factory. Now just wait until some tuning companies get their hands on this beast. That is, if anyone is crazy enough to modify a 2-3 million dollar super car.
While millions of people anxiously await the 2012 Super Bowl between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots, we have gathered all the best Super Bowl car commercials for the time being. The largest car manufacturers have to get their ad spot for the game, because many people focus on the commercials more than the game itself. Last year we saw some great advertisements, but each year keeps getting better, so check out the best Super Bowl car commercials after the jump.
We have a ton of pictures for you of the Marangoni Range Rover Evoque HFI-R. The first thing that jumps out are the red Marangoni tires, but the brunette model spices it up even more. We’re surprised that colored tires have not yet gained popularity among tuners. Maybe because they are hard to keep looking new, or the fact that they are more expensive then regular rubber. These M-Power EvoRed high performance tires are made of a special compound with high silica content that is said to improve fuel consumption as well. The ones you see here were stretched on a new set of O.Z. Racing 20-inch alloy rims measuring 255/30R20.
Kicherer has already unveiled a couple projects with the Mercedes SLS AMG supercar, but have now released their SLS 63 Supersport GT with some exceptional styling. This one looks to top all the previous jobs, and the tuning company called this take the “angry and aggressive” car. However, the car girl in the pictures seems to enjoy the Mercedes without hesitation. Becoming more popular these days are the matte black car wraps, seen here on the SLS 63 Supersport GT. A hand-made shark mouth style grill was installed, which actually looks like a common iron fence to surround your house for privacy. Completing the exterior styling is the aero kit consisting of a carbon fiber spoiler lip and carbon fin set.
Although Ken Block stated last year was one of his best ever, the numbers show a disappointing FIA World Rally Championship campaign in his new Monster Energy Ford Fiesta RS rally car. Mechanical issues also plagued his performance in Rally America, however the Monster World Rally Team (MWRT) is hoping for an improved 2011 season with even more races and events. Some notable mentions in the United States include the Summer X Games, Gymkhana GRID, and select RallyCar rallies and RallyCross events across the states in his Ford Fiesta RS WRC car.

It’s been hectic at the Tuning World Bodensee this past weekend where 26-year old Kristin Zippel was crowned the winner of Miss Tuning 2010. She’s a beauty therapist from Mering, Germany who beat out Jennifer Ziegener and Irena, the runner-up and third place finalists respectively. She stunned the judges in her sexy bikini, and was awarded a Nissan Micra along with an upcoming photo shoot in the Great Lakes region of North America. After Kristin was announced the winner, she stated, “This is crazy, I’m really looking forward to exciting events with great people, and above all the cool cars.”
Auto shows have always been the place to come check out what motivates you to be successful in life. Whether it be the hot cars or the hot show car girls, there’s something at the car shows that makes you want to do better. If you are already successful, well then the auto show is for you to get ideas about the next car you want to buy. Or for the arrogant to brag about the all the cars they own, including the car a sexy model is standing next to, hoping it will entice her for a date.

It’s that time of the year again! Summer has come to an end and here are pictures from the 2010 Miss Tuning Calendar with the hottest car babe. Featured in this year’s car tuning calendar is the 19 year old Martina Ivezaj who posed in the British Virgin Islands for Christian Holzknecht.

However I doubt many of you will be looking at the landscape, because Martina is one sexy car babe.
