The Mercedes CLA250 hasn’t seen too many aftermarket upgrade since its launch in 2013, which is a clear indication that aftermarket companies are working hard to develop kits that accent this awesome sedan without taking away from its natural beauty. The few updates that we have seen were limited to just exterior upgrades, and this remains the same with the latest upgrade coming from the D2 Autosport.

The upgrades that D2 Autosport adds to the new entry-level Mercedes give this luxury sedan a more aggressive appearance without distracting you from its sexy lines. The upgrades include a piano black lower bumper insert, a new grille and surround, black headlight surrounds, and black mirror casings. Also added to the white example that D2 rolled out is a contrasting black roof, black badges, black tailpipes and a set of 18-inch, multi-spoke alloy wheels in black.

D2 did not upgrade the drivetrain at all, so this CLA250 still produces the stock 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque from its 20.-liter engine.

The upgrade kit also includes new side stripes and a custom, three-piece rear spoiler that suits the new look just perfectly. The full upgrade cost $7,000.

One may mistake it for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive , but it’s not. This rather ostentatious SLS AMG has been modded by the folks at the AMG Performance Studio.

For an additional cost, owners can send their cars over for a complete makeover and here is one such example of an SLS AMG tastefully modified to customer preference with bright fluorescent exterior and black accents. Most of the aerodynamic upgrades you see here are standard equipment on the Black Series.

The AMG wheels have been finished in a gloss black with fluorescent accents. The brake calipers, however have been left Solarbeam Yellow which is bit odd.

Underneath the paint, all the bits and pieces are from the standard SLS AMG Black, along with that glorious 6.2-liter, V-8 engine that puts out 622 horsepower and 468 pound-feet of torque. With this monster V-8, 60 mph comes up in just 3.5 seconds and the top speed is set at 198 mph.

Anyway, Mercedes-Benz has not revealed the name of the person who ordered this flashy car, but we expect to hear more from them about the very first SLS AMG Black Series to get the spa treatment from its very own Performance studio.

Can you believe that in just one week since its online debut, the new Lamborghini Huracan already received two upgrade kits? The first one was announced by DMC Tuning , while the second one comes from Oakley Design. Of course they are both virtual, but both are showing the amazing tuning capacities of the new Huracan supercar.

According to Oakley Design this is just an initial design they are offering for the Huracan, but it will be tweaked, so most likely the final car will look a little different than this.

The tuner brags it placed orders for two Lamborghini Huracan supercars, so the new tuning kit will most likely be applied to these two cars. However, until we’ll have the chance to see the final tuning kit, Oakley needs to go and see the new Huracan during a private unveiling on January 15, 2014.

Vorsteiner couldn’t ended the year without unveiling one last tuning kit that transforms the BMW M6 Gran Coupe into a mean-looking sports machine. As with all the other packages offered by the tuner, the upgrade kit offered for the M6 only includes updates to the exterior look of the car, but they were enough for a complete makeover.

All the new elements offered by Vorsteiner - front spoiler, rear diffuser, side skirts and deck lid spoiler - were made in carbon fiber, so they will increase the car’s total weight. This way the car’s performance figures will remain unchanged, even if the car looks more aggressive and sportier. We’re not sure if any engine upgrades are also included in the program, but for sure that will be cool.

As usual Vorsteiner is also offering unique 19-, 20-, 21- or 22-inch wheels with widths ranging from 8.5 to 13 inches, plus a cat-back exhaust system that will improve the sound delivered by the V-8 engine.

Jon Olsson is a professional freeskier and alpine ski racer coming from Sweden. As he spends most of his life on the snow, you can imagine that for him a car specially equipped for the winter is a must. In the past years he prepared himself a very cool Lamborghini Gallardo to transport his ski, but also a specially designed PPI Design R8 Razor GTR , among many other.

Now his garage will also include a new Audi RS6 Avant specially designed for the winter season. Apparently the new RS6 Avant made quite an impression and this is why it was picked by Olsson: "this truly is the most impressive car I have ever driven, the only car that came close to impress me as much was the Agera R , so I think that says a lot!"

We are not very sure if a comparison between the Agera R and the RS6 Avant is accurate, but we just can’t wait to see all the updates the car will receive in the near future.

Underground Racing is a renowned name in the tuner supercar scene. Their newest creation is based on the 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo with a twin-turbocharger kit installed for additional poke. The all-wheel drive Gallardo puts down 1850 horsepower at the wheels with lots of pops and bangs and screeching tires.

Unlimited 500+, a drag race organized by folks at Dragtimes in Greece hosted all high performance tuned supercars from Eurasia and the U.S. The event also saw the current ultimate record holder- a Nissan GT-R Switzer Goliath with 1700 horsepower which set a record 250 mph (403 kph) at the mile marker. It completed the sprint in just 22.602 seconds.

In Greece, the Lamborghini Gallardo Nera Underground Racing R2/Altechno raced to the mile marker in just 22.352 seconds at over 260 mph setting a new world record.

The Audi R8 GT is limited to only 333 units worldwide, so you can imagine that the chance to own one is pretty rare. For us, a base R8 GT is powerful enough from factory and it needs no upgrades. If you forgot, it is powered by a 5.2 V-10 engine that delivers a total of 560 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. This amount of power is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and up to 198 mph.

But, what while we consider this amount of power quite enough for a sports car, the guys over Underground Racing decided the R8 GT can do much better so they developed a first upgrade package for it.

The kit is called Stage 2R Twin Turbo and was specially developed for a customer that opted for the FULL 2R build. This setup makes an easy 1,150 whp on 93 octane pump gas and more than 1,800 whp on race gas.

Until Lamborghini decides to bring a SV (SuperVeloce) version for its Aventador supercar, the guys over DMC decided to develop their own SV version for the supercar, except that for them "SV" stands for "Special Version".

The new tuning kit is called "LP988 Edizione-GT" and, as you probably have guessed it, "988" indicated the incredible amount of power found under the hood: 988 horsepower. According to the tuner this is the "Stage 3" upgrade kit offered for the Aventador, and it expects to be as successful as both the Molto Veloce and the LP900 SV Limited Edition announced last December.

DMC got its design inspiration from the Veneno supercar unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, and, while the LP988 Edizione-GT won’t be as expensive as the Lamborghini supercar, it surely be equally crazy.

While DMC kept this a secret for now, we expect the LP988 Edizione-GT to have been specially developed for some rich guys in Dubai or China.

The 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon will feature its share of new concepts coming from Japanese automakers. Mazda , for one, has a handful that it’s prepared to unveil and one of them, at least the one that got our attention is called the Axela Sport Mazda Design Concept.

Don’t be fooled by the Axela name, this model is actually the Mazda3 in other parts of the world other than Japan. So it takes the look of one and thanks to a MazdaSpeed exterior, it’s been treated to a slew of new aerodynamic components that’s highlighted by a front splitter and aerodynamic side skirts.

On top of that, special graphics were also splashed into the Axela’s body, not to mention the inclusion of performance modifiers like a strengthened chassis, Brembo brakes, and a new set of black alloy wheels.

The package itself is quite impressive for the model, giving credence tot he prevailing thought that the Axela, or the 3 as its known in this part of the world, is a model that’s right for customization.

The world went crazy this year with the launch of the seventh generation Corvette , so is a little bit surprising to see that there are people still interested in the old, C6 Corvette .

The guys over Supervettes spent the last four years developing a very cool aero kit for the sixth generation Corvette . Currently the kit is suitable only for the C6 Corvette, but the tuner announced the kit will also be adapted to suit the C7 version once the car will be out in the wild. The kit borrows some design elements from the C7, with the rear being the most obvious influence.

The new SV8.R C7 aero kit from Supervettes will be limited to only five units and three of them were already sold. The price for the kit is $59,995, not including the donor car - an interesting offer considering the new Corvette Stingray is priced at $51,995.
