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.
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 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.
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. Under the hood is where the guys at Edo tend to focus, so they hooked up this British ride with several pleasing parts. Optimized ECU tuning software was used, along with the addition of a high performance exhaust system, special catalytic converters, and high flow air filters. Thanks to these upgrades, the Aston Martin DBS now puts down 550 hp and 600 Nm of torque, with a 100 km/h sprint time of 4.1 seconds, and an overall top speed of 320 km/h.
The German tuners at Wheelsandmore have released a special tuning kit for the elegant Aston Martin DB9 convertible. Custom modifications include a new body kit made of polyurethane featuring new front and rear aprons, side skirts, and a rear spoiler. The Aston Martin DB9 convertible looks more bold and aggressive with these additions. Wheelsandmore added Kahn RS-V wheels that measure 20×9 and come wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx tires measuring 255/35/20 in the front, and 20×11 rims with 285/30/20 tires in the rear. Under the hood of the Aston Martin DB9 Volante convertible is the stock 6.0-liter V12 engine, which Wheelsandmore decided to perform some ECU tuning.
Mansory does some incredible work, and with this Aston Martin DB9 they transformed it completely with a ridiculous amount of carbon fiber dubbed the Cyrus. There’s no doubt the idea came from their previous work and accomplishments on the Bugatti Veyron Vincero and Bugatti Veyron Linea Vincero models. Their work is amazing and one of the most stunning Aston Martin DB9 models we have ever seen. The car was recently released at the Frankfurt Auto Show and received the attention it deserves. It was completely re-done with all carbon fiber for every piece of the body. Except the rear fenders which couldn’t shape the carbon fiber accordingly, Mansory glued on carbon fiber panels that are two inches wider with adhesive exclusively from Lamborghini.
The latest tuning project from MWDesign is the elegant Aston Martin V8 Vantage nicknamed “Helvellyn Frost“, which has been tuned to perfection. Exclusive styling, improved aerodynamics, and enhanced performance make this Aston Martin an easy choice for buyers. First, MWDesign created a digital concept to test it. Then they went with aftermarket suspension and wheels, that include adjustable H&R suspension for proper ride height, and M14 forged wheels that come wrapped in high performance Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. The tires measure 255/35/20 in the front, and 285/25/20 in the rear. Performance gains are accomplished by installing a race exhaust system, high flow 200 cell catalysts, and ECU software tuning. After these modifications, the MWDesign Aston Martin V8 Vantage is capable of producing 445 horsepower. It is also noted that this stunning Aston Martin Vantage has a unique and powerful sound from the handbuilt V8 engine. Final touches include painting the side vents, front grille, window trims, and truck lip section matte black to match the wheels and contrast the Helvellyn Frost paint color.
The car tuning company Elite brings us the Aston Martin LMV/R (Le Mans Vantage Racer) which will be limited to only 30 cars. This is a real racecar on the street, and a very unique vehicle based off the Aston Martin Vantage. Elite was able to lighten the car by replacing the factory body panels with carbon fiber, and they made it more powerful as well. For the exterior they went with a carbon fiber new front bumper, carbon canards, carbon front splitter, wider fenders, side skirts, wider rear corner panels, new rear bumper, carbon diffuser, and carbon fiber wing. Elite chose larger 20 inch matte black wheels to fit the wide body kit Aston Martin LMV/R, then lowered the car with new springs, and installed a big brake kit to handle the performance increases.
