Limited-run vehicles always grab the attention of customers and even more so when one of these models are given a comprehensive aftermarket upgrade.
That’s the case with the Volkswagen Polo R WRC Street , a car that VW built to celebrate its return to WRC. But even with that, B&B decided that the car wasn’t special enough. So what does it do?
Well, it made it even more special, that’s what!
This the German pocket rocket already has enough stylish and mechanical digs to make consumers weep, but B&B opted to make it extra special, adding a host of upgrades to improve the car’s handling requirements. As such, the Polo R WRC Street now has a coilover kit, sports springs, stabilizers a high-performance braking system with four- or six-piston calipers and a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 225/35R18 tires.
But the real treat of this program is the comprehensive performance upgrade, highlighted by a Stage 3 kit that includes the installation of a bespoke high-pressure fuel pump and a sports exhaust system to go with a modified air suction system, a new high-performance intercooler and a different oil-cooling system. All told, B&B was able to bump up the output of the Polo R WRC Street from the standard 217 horsepower and 258 pound-feet torque output all the way up to a tidy 362 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque.
With those changes, this German spitfire is now capable of hitting 62 mph in just 5.2 seconds, a full 1.2 seconds faster than the ’standard’ model, to go with a top speed of 168 mph, up from 151 mph.

Really, if you’ve seen their past programs, having a British SUV on that list feels a little out of place. But to their credit, they were able to build a program that boasts of impressive improvements on the Evoque’s multitude of engine options.
The base model, which carries a 2.2-liter turbo diesel ED4 or TD4 engine, B&B was able to use its Stage 1 performance kit to increase the SUV’s output from the standard 148 horsepower and 280 lb/ft of torque all the way up 177 horsepower and 332 lb/ft of torque. If the Stage 1 program isn’t enough for you, the German tuner also has a Stage 2 kit, which boasts output even further, hitting 197 horsepower and 350 lb/ft of torque.
From there, B&B turned its attention on the 2.2-liter SD4 diesel engine. Just like the base model, this engine trim is treated to two performance programs, Level 1 package that boasts the output from 188 horsepower all the way up to 227 horsepower and 354 lb/ft of torque while the Level 2 package hits all the right notes to 241 horsepower and 369 lb/ft of torque.
Finally, there’s the top-of-the-line 2.2-liter turbocharged engine that already comes with 240 horsepower in production guise. But thanks to B&B and its Stage 1 kit, that output hits 268 horsepower while the Stage 2 kit bumps it up even further to 282 horsepower. And finally, there’s also a Stage 3 kit that gives the Evoque 295 horsepower. This program, in particular, nets the SUV a new 0-62 mph time of just 6.5 seconds with a faster top speed of 143 mph.
Calling it like we see it, B&B Automobiltechnik managed to give Evoque owners not only variety, but impressive aftermarket engine improvements.
The Audi A7 Sportback was unveiled in 2010 and since then, it hasn’t really been picked up by many tuners. In the cases where a tuning company - like MTM and Senner Tuning - has taken a chance at the A7, the power upgrades for the model haven’t exactly been as breathtaking as the recent package conceived by B&B.
The B&B tuning package is based on the 3.0-liter V6 TFSI version of the Audi A7 and includes three different engine stages. In Stage One, the V6 engine is tuned to deliver 380 HP and361 lb-ft of torque, while Stage Two takes the standard 296 HP and 325 lb-ft of torque up to 402 HP and 383 lb-ft of torque. Anyone wanting to pack a bigger punch can opt for Stage Three which includes a high-flow air filter, an optimized intercooler, and a sport exhaust system that will increase the engine power to 419 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque.
With the Audi A7’s new-found power, B&B probably didn’t feel the need to jazz up the exterior or interior. The only additions they made, aside from the engine upgrades, are front fender vents, a lowered suspension, and a new set of 19" to 21" inch alloy wheels.
The 2012 Audi RS3 Sportback might look the part of a ’ho-hum’ car on the outside, but rest assured, it’s got some serious horses lurking waiting to be bumped up by the right tuning house.

The first Stage upgrade takes the RS3’s 2.5-liter turbocharged, five-cylinder engine’s standard output of 340 horsepower and 332 lb/ft of torque up to 410 horsepower and 413 lb/ft of torque. Not content with that? Well, B&B has the Stage 2 upgrade for you, further bumping up the output to 425 horsepower and 428 lb/ft of torque. Then there’s the Stage 3 upgrade that boosts up the output further, hitting 450 horsepower and 442 lb/ft of torque.
You would think that those upgrades are already enough, but B&B is far from finished. For the price of €15,950 - that’s about $23,000 based on current exchange rates - the German tuner will provide a larger turbocharger and a high-performance stainless-steel exhaust system that brings the RS3’s total output to a mighty impressive 510 horsepower and 501 lb/ft of torque. With this upgrade, the RS3 can now hit north-to-60 in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 193 mph.
Other goodies that are part of this whole set-up, include a new two-mode sport suspension, a high performance brake system, and a choice between 19" or 20" wheels. Let’s all be real though; the meat and bones of what B&B is offering centers on the performance improvements done on the Audi RS3.
