The Mercedes SLS AMG may have been replaced by the faster SLS AMG GT, but tuners are still having their way with the supercar. The latest tuning package is from Inden Design, and they’ve even included a beautiful young lady to the mix.
Inden Design didn’t play around too much with the design of the car, but they did add a new set of 21" light metal rims painted in high-gloss black. The only other change, and the biggest, is the engine modification. The tuner added a serially produced exhaust system in high-grade steel in non-ostentatious visual appearance with electronic valve control. As a result, the V8’s output has been increased from 571 to 623 HP, making it even more powerful than the SLS AMG GT.
Inden Design did add one more accessory piece to the exterior of the SLS AMG and that is the beautiful Katja Runiello (photo model, dancer, and actress). Katja’s dress was the inspiration for the package because it was created by Haute Couture designer Elvira Kirsch. Other glamour credits should be given to stylist Katharina Freitag and photo artist Olaf Pitzer from Nauroth.
Feel free to check out the full gallery over at his Flickr account, but for now we’re just focusing on the above picture and the dozen-odd other ones where a sexy model is showcased on, near and around this stunning supercar.
The individual picture in question was captured out the front of the Puerta da Alcalá in Madrid, and features some incredible light streaks from passing by cars, one of which was a Ferrari F430 coupe. Add to that the monument being lite up in an incredible shade of light blue and you have one of the very best shots of the Murcielago SV we’ve ever seen.
However, we didn’t feel that was enough for this week and also gathered all of the model & supercar pictures for you guys as we can never get enough of this combination.
Despite being a couple years old, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV is still the second most powerful Lamborghini production car ever produced, behind the Aventador, with its 6.5-liter V12 delivering 662HP which is enough to launch the supercar to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds and onto a top speed nearing 210mph.
There are two things that are a part of nearly every auto show: sexy cars and equally appealing women. With the latter often comes clothing that leaves very little to the imagination. Well apparently, the Capital Ethics Development Office of China – the morality police, per se – decided that it wanted none of it, as they reprimanded the Beijing Auto Show officials for such scantily clad women, per a report from Bloomberg.
From what we saw of the Beijing Auto Show, the number of skin-flaunting women wasn’t nearly as high as we are used to, so we are left wondering what exactly the Chinese government wants. There were, of course, the obligatory more-skin-than-clothes models, but for the most part the women were dressed pretty moderately for an auto show, and the video from Bloomberg (above) shows them.
We totally understand that the Chinese government is more reserved than most, but c’mon, it’s an auto show. Who is mostly drawn to auto shows? The answer is, primarily men in their 30s and 40s. What do most men in their 30s and 40s like just about as much as cars? Well, we think you can figure it out…
We guess we’ll just have to see what happens next year at the Beijing Auto Show. We certainly hope the women aren’t prancing around in pant suits – eek. If so, we will all use a lot less space on our digital cameras.
The Nissan GT-R was officially unveiled back in 2008 and since then, the car has seen numerous updates. The original model came with a 485 HP V6 engine which was then updated to 530 before finally getting to 550 HP. These are certainly impressive numbers, but engines can always see an added boost thanks to tuners willing to put in some extra time. Mcchip-dkr and CoverEFX have developed a very impressive package for the Nissan GT-R that increases the total output to 596 HP and 553 lb-ft. of torque.
In order to obtain the extra 46 HP, the tuners installed a new sports exhaust system and optimized the power software. Next to these updates, CoverEFX also added a a spectacular racing-style film-coating to match the dynamic body of the GT-R. The foil combines Cardinal Red, Raven Black, and Pina Colada White. The GT-R’s ride height was also lowered by 30 millimeters thanks to new lowering springs from H&R.
However, the best accessory is the brunette they have posed with the Nissan GT-R. We have to wonder if she’s part of the package because they would definitely sell out quick!
When we attend an auto show, the first things we watch for are the brand new cars gracing the stage, but usually, next to those beautiful new cars are equally as, if not more so, beautiful women. This year’s New York Auto Show was certainly no different as the ladies were out in full short skirt force.
It may be a little difficult to pay too close attention to the women in our picture gallery considering they are standing next to the likes of the Audi R8 GT Spyder, the SRT Viper GTS-R, the Lincoln MKZ, and the Lexus RX, but the girls certainly hold their own.
Enjoy the picture gallery and let us know whether you liked the cars or the girls better in the comments section below!
Every year, the Tuning World Bodensee plays hosts to a tuning-club-scene exhibition. But more than just the aftermarket programs in attendance in Germany, the event is also notable for staging the annual Miss Tuning competition.
This year, 20 drop-dead gorgeous contestants vying for the title of Miss Tuning 2012 have been named finalists where they will move on to the official pageant event. Last year, 23-year old Mandy Lange beat out 17 other finalists to take home the crown as Miss Tuning 2011.
So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, although we think its mostly the latter that will enjoy this, we’ve compiled a photo gallery of some of the finalists that are in the running to succeed Mandy Lange as the 2012 winner of Tuning World Bodensee’s Miss Tuning pageant.
You can check out all the hotness in the photo gallery. Pick out your favorites too and let us know which of these gorgeous ladies are on the top of your list.
The love of fast cars must run through the Ecclestone blood line. Not only is billionaire Bernie Ecclestone the president and CEO of Formula One, but in a not-so-surprising turn, his daughter seems to love them just as much. These images show off a sexy Tamara Ecclestone as she poses next to her $600K Ferrari 599 GTO. It’s not the new F12Berlinetta, but the 599 still knows how to command attention, as does Ms. Ecclestone.
Aside from a love of fast cars, Tamara has also inherited her father’s business sense, but she has a little more to play with than dear old Dad. These images were released to promote her new reality TV show, Billionaire SS Girl on Channel V- yes, everyone now has a reality TV show - and show off just how compatible the 599’s sleek body is with hers.
The Ferrari 599 GTO is powered by a V12 engine delivering a total of 670 HP at 8250 rpm with a maximum torque of 620 Nm at 6500 rpm. It rockets the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.35 seconds, while top speed goes up to 208 mph. It is limited to only 599 units.
Young or old, American or European, every man in this world know who Pamela Anderson is, and more importantly how she looks like. She is, or was at some point, the dream of every man out there. But the distance from being a dream girl to owning a personal race team is very long. Unthinkable in fact! But Pamela Anderson did it: she launched her own personal race firm called Downforce1 and announced she will have cars competing in the European Le Mans Series as well as the International GT open series. At this point we are not very sure is she will actually drive any of these cars, but for sure that will be something we will want to see.
Apparently, next to silicone, Pamela is also a huge fan of NASCAR and F1 racing series, and now she wants to take her passion to a next level: "Fast Cars and Fast women go together and here we are surrounded by men I love it.” said Pam on the sidelines of a NASCAR race.
European Le Mans Series will be the first race to compete in. Her team will enter with an Aston Martin Vantage GT2 with Markus Fux, the marketing chief and team coordinator of the team, behind the wheel.
"I’m so proud of the Downforce 1 team. These gentlemen have achieved the impossible and built up a team in just four months, so I cannot wait to see my cars on the racetracks it’s hard to believe until I see it. Look for us in white and blue - my signature color" said Pamela Anderson.
She also announced that by the end of 2013 she will also have a team ready for Nascar. Can you guess the mascot of that team?
There are few things better than a luscious super car, but any guy will tell you that, on that short list, there’s a hot girl next to a super car. Forgiato Wheels knows this and while their tuning package for the Lamborghini Aventador isn’t really anything to write home about, a beautiful girl in a white, see-through blouse makes all the difference.
The only modifications Forgiato Wheels added was, well, wheels. The new wheels are called Artigli-ECL and where inspired by the sharp lines and aggressive look of the Lamborghini Aventador. They measure 20×9 with a 2" lip up front and 21×13.5 with a 4.5" lip at the rear, and are wrapped in Pirelli tires, size 255/30/20 and 355/25/21 rear. Their white paint finish fits perfectly with the exterior of the super car and with the model’s white top.
Speaking of the model, her name is Jasmine Sanders, and surely her beauty can be appreciated just as much as the Aventador’s beauty. Enjoy the gallery!
Every auto show needs more than just the fancy debuts and out-of-this-world concepts. Sure, those cars pretty much make up the entire essence of the event, but no auto show is complete without the presence of the lovely ladies.
Just like all the major auto events in the calendar, the female delegation at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show certainly didn’t disappoint. We certainly love how their presence in events like this can divert our attention from some of the finest pieces of metal that are on display to just look at and be smitten with these beautiful ladies.
Geneva offered a fine mix of gorgeous women that certainly caught our attention. It wasn’t enough to keep us away from the cars, but the eye candy definitely served as a nice compliment to all the cars that were on display.
And no, we didn’t get phone numbers, nor did we ask for them. We did take some photos, though, which you can check out in the gallery!
