Road Test Review – 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST – By Carl Malek

Remember when sport SUVS once ruled the automotive landscape? Indeed in the 90’s and early 2000’s there was a period in time when these muscle bound behemoths were the proverbial jewels in the pocket books of the Detroit Big Three. But once gas prices rose, and the economic recession took hold, the segment went out with a whimper, and nearly disappeared. With a new era of cheap oil and a revived interest in SUVs, the segment has bounced back, and has produced a new crop of entries. One of these is the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST, but can this new …

790HP 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63-S Estate by Wimmer RST

At what point do supertune’s start getting depressing?  Take this new C63-S Estate by Germany’s Wimmer RennSport Technik.  This humble family hauled goes from a monstrous 500HP to a sheerly obscene 790! That is adding almost 300 horsepower — more than many performance cars deliver in total! Granted, the full Wimmer RST mod shown here is also priced at 30k Euro — enough to afford a nice WRX Sti if you wanted 300HP (and a whole car) attached. Will any STi deliver G-forces like this killer C63-S longroof? Nope. The results of 790HP to the back wheels are predictably shocking. …

2.5s, 830HP 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabrio By Wimmer RST

How do you go from about 550 horsepower to well past 800?  Carefully! Wimmer RennSportTechnik has spent months developing their latest engine magic for the latest 911 Turbo S.  A wholesale revamp of the engine electronics, breathing and even mechanicals was required to have such Bugatti-like boost flowing through the H6TT motor. The results are quite shocking: the sprint pace is shockingly rapid.  Even more than the factory car, which is no slouch.  The overall vMax is stunning too: this machine can do a confirmed 226-mph!   2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabrio By Wimmer RST ONE OF A KIND …

2016 KTM X-Bow GT Delivers Helmet-Free Thrills Thanks to WIMMER RST

Germany’s Wimmer is not just a tuning and car mod company: they also run the KTM automotive sales operation in much of Germany. And they do it very well! The X-Bow GT is the closest this carbon-chassised racecar gets to being usable in daily driving — sans race helmet.  The new safety-glass windshield element features clear heating elements to melt off any ice, as well as wiper/washer functionality like a boring road car. Also nice wrap-around side windows to complete the chic decapotable look. But these features can be sorely missed when absent! The X-Box GT is a rare and …

4.0s 2015 KTM X-Bow R Limited Edition by WIMMER RST

Just three of these very special KTM crossbowes will be made as a special performance model by German KTM distributor Wimmer Racing. Power is up by 80 ponies to 380 in total, dropping acceleration times comfortably into the 4’s via a new engine tine, carbon intake elements, and sports turbo upgrades. The X-Bow R wears a few of the tastiest KTM factory options, including a full aero underbody with extreme new diffusers and splitters. Plus the downforce package from a shockingly huge new wing in back.   2015 KTM X-Bow R Limited Edition by WIMMER RST KTM X-BOW R LIMITED …

WIMMER RST Creates One-Off 2015 KTM X-Bow Dubai Gold Edition

    The KTM X-Bow still has a massive amount of potential: this carbon-fiber speedster layout is likely to be the next big format for track cars over the coming decades. Retiring the floppy old chassis rails of Caterhams is not an instant hit, though. It turns out some of the driving fun and pleasure may have been derived from all that flex under your bum around fast corners. So the X-Bow (said: ‘crossbow’) has an uphill climb to win over purists. To the uninitated, the KTM X-Bow can feel too anodyne, too sure-footed and too grippy for traditional UK …

624HP Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate by WIMMER Rennsporttechnik

It is only recently that the US market enjoys super-high-performance AMG wagons — our European friends have been loving their AMG Kombi’s and Estates for years now. But even for German domestic-market clients – we do not believe a wagon C63 was ever in the factory catalog. That makes this Wimmer conversion extra special. Bumping the power and style of the C63 is Wimmer RST — a helpful acronym when shortening Rennsporttechnik! Nothing shorthand about the 150-horsepower conversion in power in this yellow C63, nor the slammed stance and custom styling upgrade. Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate by WIMMER     …

KTM X-Bow GT By WIMMER Is Nearly Unbeatable With 485HP

 The KTM X-Bow is easily one of the most interesting and coolest track car designs to appear in the last 15 years. But major critiques of the car have arisen regardless. Its carbon tub and frame make the car’s handling, some say, too benign and its power delivery too inert. For these hardcore drivers, the X-Bow GT and X-Bow RR need a final push to enter the true supercar level of track pace. Enter Germany’s WIMMER RST — a racing company that will also prep you a road car. The X-Bow GT shown here with the new windshield option bumps …
