Last year, TopCar unveiled the ML63 AMG "Inferno" . Now the tuning kit was revisited and the tuner came up with a new version called ML63 AMG Inferno Black. As its name suggests, the new version is all about making the ML63 dark.

The Inferno package takes its inspiration from the Black Series model offered by Mercedes and makes the SUV look more aggressive than ever.

We are not too sure if the new Inferno Black kit will feature any engine upgrades, but we assume so, given the original Inferno package was offered with three stages of upgrades. In the Stage One kit the ML63 AMG’s V-8 engine was tricked to deliver a total of 640 horsepower and 722 pound-feet of torque, up from the standard 518 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. There is also a Stage Two kit that takes the power up to 690 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque, while the most powerful version — Stage Three — delivers 760 horsepower and 848 pound-feet of torque.

Do you remember the 997 Turbo BTR-II 650 EVO SpeedArt unveiled back n 2010? Today the same tuner turned its attention to the BTR-II package one more time and came up with a new version. This time around, the kit is called BTR-II 600 EVO Ultra Edition and unfortunately, it is a little bit less powerful than the first edition, but one benefit it that the tuner applied the kit to a convertible model.

This tuning kit pushes the Porsche’s engine to 600 horsepower — 50 horsepower less than the BTR-II 650 EVO model. To achieve this output level, the tuner installed its Powerkit III system, a sports exhaust system with a sound switch, 200-cell sports catalytic converter and 84 mm tailpipes. Peak torque was also increased to 590 pound-feet. This represents a significant increase over the base 500 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque delivered by the 997 Turbo .

Next to the extra power, the BTR-II 600 EVO Ultra Edition received an adjustable sport suspension with PASM and air lift for more ground clearance and a meaner appearance.

The Mercedes CL65 AMG — together with its younger brother, the CL63 AMG — is one of those vehicles that’s a little hard to classify. It’s too big to be a sports car, but it’s a little too small to be classified as a luxury car.

So...what is it?

The short answer: who cares, because whatever it may be, the CL65 AMG is a bad-ass ride. And in most cases, that’s fine by us.

German tuner Anderson Germany shares those sentiments and it’s taken its love for the CL65 AMG to a new level with a new program that it has christened the Special Grey Stone Edition.

The name of the program is appropriate for the CL65 AMG , considering that you won’t find a whole lot of flash in it. Instead, the luxury sports coupe has plenty of substance; the kind that you appreciate even more once you get inside one and drive it home.

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a hard muscle car to improve in large part because the car already looks and performs like a tried-and-true Shelby.

But Anderson Germany is undaunted; the German tuner believes that there’s still something inherently more evil that lies within the Mustang Shelby GT500 and it’s determined to summon this evil with its new program.

Dubbed the Super Venom Edition, Anderson Germany successfully outfitted the Shelby GT500 with a really cool body kit that not only drives up the muscle car’s aggressive looks, but also helps improve its performance and handling credentials.

It certainly goes without saying that Anderson Germany has made a business out of these kinds of projects. The tuner has time and again provided aftermarket body work on numerous vehicles in the past with the Shelby GT500 being the latest in a long list of vehicles that have been, so to speak, "Anderson Germany’d"

The new Land Rover Range Rover was unveiled back in 2012 and since then, it has gained lots of attention from tuners. In fact, if you remember correctly, there has been about one new tuning kit offered each week.

This week, the tuning kit comes from the German tuner Arden and is simply called Spirit. Though Arden left the bits under the hood alone, it did work hard on updating the look of the SUV .

The new AR9 body kit includes a new front apron with two air entrances for improved ventilation. The tuner also installed an exclusive, handmade Arden front grille, a completely redesigned front appearance and new side skirts. For the rear, Arden installed a new apron and new sports silencers.

The car sits on a set of 22-inch wheels painted the same color as the SUV’s exterior. As an option, buyers can also opt for 22-inch monobloc Dakar II rims painted in black/silver matte or silver/grey matte.

While we await the Audi Q5 RS to arrive, Audi launched the SQ5, which comes in both diesel and gasoline versions. These engines help the SQ5 deliver impressive performance to go with its more aggressive exterior look.The base Audi SQ5 TDI uses a V-6 turbo-diesel engine that delivers a total of 313 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, a little bit more than a base Q5, but considerable less than we expect from a RS model.

Lucky for us, since Audi decided to keep the SQ5 relatively tame, ABT Sportsline decided to push the SQ5 a little harder. This slight nudge pushes the V-6 engine to a total of 360 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

Along with the extra power, ABT also offers a wide-body kit and a wide range of wheels to choose from.

In 2013, BMW unveiled the 6 Series Gran Coupe and for 2014, Bimmer added all-wheel drive to the 640i, and improved the iDrive controls and 3D navigation across the model line. Despite its relative youth on the market, German tuner, Kelleners Sport, decided to tweak the four-door coupe.

Kelleners Sport started by updating the output level in the 640i and 640d , so both models now deliver 20-percent more power. For the 640d version the power was increased by 53 horsepower to a total of 366 horsepower, while the peak torque goes from 464 to 543 pound-feet.

It’s no secret that the Porsche 997.2 911 Turbo is the kind of car people always dream of owning.

As one of the fastest and most powerful cars on the market today, this beastly Porsche can rocket out of the block like nobody’s business. This awesome performance comes from a 500-horsepower six-cylinder engine that allows the car to hit 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 197 mph.

But every so often, even a car as universally lauded as the 911 Turbo still gets the benefit of having an aftermarket tuner willing to do the work to give it even more juice. Such was the case when Pennsylvania-based tuner, AWE Tuning, released its 750R performance program for the mighty German sports car .

Evidently, that "750R" insignia is an sign that this 911 Turbo pushes out 750 horsepower, a staggering output even for the 911 Turbo’s status. But that’s what AWE Tuning did, thanks to a slew of company-built programs, including the AWE Tuning 750R Power Package and the AWE Tuning RSR Style Performace Exhaust. From the images that AWE released, we can tell that this kit includes updated turbochargers, new intercoolers, an updated exhaust system and new silicone tubing.

Other than its work under the hood of the 911 Turbo, AWE Tuning also added a new suspension Bilstein Damptronic coilover suspension to improve its handling. Additionally, a carbon-fiber rear wing from Vorsteiner makes an appearance to up downforce, and a set of Brembo 380 mm (14.96-inch) GT brakes on the front and rear of this German sports car.

Following up on its initial Porsche 911 4S offering at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, aftermarket extraordinaire TechArt is back with a new version of this program.

This time, the German tuner took the task of dressing up the 4S Cabriolet with a similar kit, all built and developed to give the 911 4S Cabriolet the kind of aerodynamic upgrade that customers of the German sports car will undoubtedly appreciate.

It’s times like this when a tuner like TechArt has a program that’s absolutely to-die-for that we hope to have a 911 4S in our garage. We can’t say enough good things about the sports car, especially its combination of looks and performance that makes for a compelling version of the iconic 911 heritage.

It’s safe to say that the 911 4S packs quite a mean punch, a treat it owes to its 3.8-liter flat-six engine that produces 400 horsepower and chalks 0-60 mph in just 4.1 seconds to go with an impressive top speed of 185 mph.

But far more than just being a performance maven, the 911 4S is also 143 pounds lighter than the standard 911. The variant also comes equipped with Porsche’s AWD Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system and has 22 mm (0.87-inch) wider rear wheel arches than the standard 911.

With all these features packed in a package as impressive as the 911 4S, it’s no secret that this Porsche 911 variant has all sorts of fans from all corners of the world. Having a noted tuner like TechArt give it a comprehensive and new aero program only adds to its appeal.
