NOVITEC Ferrari 812 SuperFast Gets Racy, Liveable Mods

This stage one mod for the incredible Ferrari SuperFast is a nice balance of personalization and practicality. The big V12 gets a remote-adjustable exhaust note that sounds like it’s right off a racetrack. Giant new grip package goes wider and larger for the wheel/tire package all around — now up to 12.5-inches wide in the back! Factory stock (for comparison) Detail pieces of aero package in the lower bodywork up the factory aggression a tasteful amount – especially in the new dark nose.  The new chin is kept safe by the addition of a power noselift system. This will pop …

BRABUS 800 Mercedes-AMG E63-S and Widebody AMG GTS in Emerald Green by Fostla.de

Had to post this beaut because the E63 is one of my all-time favorite cars.  And one cranked up to 800 by Brabus and wrapped in green?  It just pushes all my buttons! As a bonus, also including one of Fostla’s other recent greenies: a widebody AMG GTS!   BRABUS 800 Mercedes-AMG E63-S by Fostla.de A BRABUS 800 IN EMERALD-GREEN-MATTE by FOSTLA.DE Photos: fostla.de concepts  Vehicles from the noble tuner BRABUS – by the way, a neologism from the two founders’ names Klaus Brackmann and Bodo Buschmann – in Bottrop one usually sees in black, and mainly Mercedes-Benz models.

860HP RXR One is AMG GT-S by IMSA GmbH

How furious would you be this year if you bought an AMG GT last year??  Same goes for the 675LT McLaren they are still trying to sell next to the new-face 720S. The new AMG GT-R is a hard upgrade of the original. RXR One is IMSA of Germany’s take on upgrading the softer GT and GT-S cars to track-attack road spec. The result is unique, aggressive and clearly brings huge amounts of racing knowledge to bear on the GT’s design.  Loving its widebody bumper intakes and outlets.   Centerlock alloys and red-striped Pirellis complete a solid racecar look.   RXR …

1986 GEMBALLA Slantnose 911 Twins Join RM London 2017

What becomes of high-dollar custom exotics 30 years after they meet the world? Most are not in nearly the flawless, as-new condition as these two. That is a sure thing. Nor are there many box-fresh 911s of any kind from that era.  Let alone with completely outrageous bodywork and spoilers? These two are almost twins – the white Avalanche a hardtop and the red Cyrrus a ragtop. Although they are twins in many ways, they each actually wear totally unique executions for their nose and whale tail designs.  The straked intakes along the doors and into the rear axle were …

3.0s, 646HP 2017 McLaren 570GT By Novitec

A light mod and tune this week from Novitec on the McLaren 570GT.  This glassback version of the 570 is the most practical Macca ever.  Its side-hinged rear window is barely on the radar with this stance and sound on offer, however! Power jumps to nearly 650 while an Iconel titanium exhaust brings the reverb and shout to this turbo V8.  A racy set of 21-inch alloys and carbon addenda make this daily McLaren as sexy as its track siblings. Favorite detail?  Has to be the wild carbon intake scoop on the doors!  This goes from a sliver of NACA-style …

3.3s, 193MPH 2016 Mercedes-AMG E63S Estate By Fostla.de

This E63S wagon has wrapped up my heart!  Politely tuned, lowered and loved by Fostla.de, this is a 3.3-second hero.  With a shotgun blast exhaust bellow from stock.  Now amplified with new downpipe and catback exhaust. Plus a racing cold air intake for good measure. A cool detail you might note in photos below? The badges are recreated as flat, lightweight graphics instead of metal hardware.   FOSTLA Mercedes-AMG E63S Estate SPECTACULAR FAMILY-FRIENDLY AMG by FOSTLA.DE Photos: fostla.de concepts The “bread & butter” of fostla.de in Hannover is to apply dazzling “skins” to vehicles, a process which is usually associated …

Novitec Debuts Tesla Model X Stage One Bodykit, Vossen 22s and CCBs

Welcome to Hell! Electric cars heading to the supertuning boutique? Yes, the day has come, folks. Just kidding. The Tesla X is already over $100k easily and rips to 100-mph like a stabbed rat.  So why not upgrade its style and stance to match? If you’re like us, you loathe the Tesla roofline and bloated surfaces.  But realize: the looks outside, and the glasshouse in particular, are basically just there to create ridiculously airy cabins.  The same reason there is a double-height windshield — to make the X feel like a legit spaceship.  Once you accept that — and know …

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. …
