Irmscher has released a new tuning kit for the Open Astra GTC that makes the car more sportier. They started off under the hood, where the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine was tuned to produce 220 PS (162 kW / 217 bhp) and 374 newton meters (202 lb-ft) of torque. Exterior styling improvements consist of the new body kit, featuring a front spoiler with lip, new grille, roof spoiler, and rear diffuser. Next, a new quad piped exhaust with elliptical shaped tips was installed by Irmscher on the Opel Astra GTC.
A unique car concept was released by the German tuners Irmscher called the 7 Selectra, an electric concept roadster. This classic Lotus 7 type car features a 144V DC motor producing 175 kW and an insance 800 Nm of torque. It is said to be the largest ammount of torque available for an electric car currently. Lithium iron phosphate cells (LiFePo) provide the battery power. The advantage to this liquid cooled battery is minimal power loss at low temps, and the fact they can be charged wirelessly. Technology has allowed these batteries to be charged to 60 and 100 percent in 3 to 8 hours.
The new Irmscher i42 Camaro was a hit at the Essen Motor Show, and now the tuning company plans to start producing a limited run of these cars. Based on the Chevrolet Camaro SS, it comes with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, but received a supercharger and custom exhaust for extra power. The tuners were able to boost the horsepower number to 509, and the track figures don’t lie. It is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds, and top out at 275 km/h, which is much more powerful than the factory Camaro SS. This Chevy Camaro i42 needed a high performance brake kit from Irmscher, so they installed 380 mm discs with 6-piston calipers at the front, and 355 mm discs with 4-piston calipers at the rear.
Irmscher specialists have truly outdone themselves in tuning their new urban mini MPV Kia Soul, quite the eye-catcher with Royal character and a complete transformation. With a fresh makeover, the Kia Soul Irmscher Edition 001 as it became known, was refitted with a remarkably stylish new interior as well as exterior. Born at one of Kia’s design centers in California , the Irmscher conversion takes advantage of its high-contrast exterior profile. To complement their sleek design Irmscher tuning specialists blackened the roof, mirror caps, along with the middle sections of the front and rear bumpers. Irmscher’s Edition 001 sticker (located on the side and rear of the compact city crossover) further amplifies their custom creations. Along with all that, the Kia Soul is offered with full set of low profile tires (225/45 R18) on black 18-inch Sports Star rims.
Irmscher has launched a special edition of the Dodge Journey Crossover in Germany to give the family car a complete makeover. The Journey SR is the product, and it receives a sporty look for the so called SUV, but it really still holds minivan features. It’s a family van that has been taken under the wing of the German tuning firm Irmscher, along with the cooperation of Dodge. The modifications are all cosmetic, so there are no performance gains for the stock 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine producing 140 horsepower. Included in the styling kit is a new front apron, roof spoiler, chrome tail pipes, and tinted rear windows.
