Chargespeed Japan has launched an aerodynamic upgrade for the R35 generation Nissan GT-R . The aero-kit is now available in the U.S. as well. Unlike other aftermarket body kits available for the Nissan GT-R , the "Bottomline" by Chargespeed Japan has been designed to blend into the GT-R’s contours. The company also claims to have improved aerodynamic performance of the R35 Nissan GT-R.

Nissan has spent years perfecting the aerodynamic performance of the new GT-R , so it is already near perfection, so any improvements by this kit will only make the GT-R better.

The front bumper gets an add-on air dam to streamline the air hitting the front bumper. The side skirts have been lowered to prevent air from getting under the car and causing lift. The rear uses tiny guide vanes at the upper edge of the rear windshield to direct air onto the rear spoiler. A rear diffuser also helps channel air from under the car to create more downforce.

The Bottomline kit is a made specifically for Nissan GT-Rs built between 2009 and 2013. The company also offers individual components for those of you who want to build it piece-by-piece.

All the parts are made of fiber-reinforced plastics, but customers can also opt for "Hybrid" carbon-fiber parts, hand laid with a 1x1 weave. Chargespeed is also working on an all-carbon body kit upgrade.

Back in March, Manhart Racing revealed its first tuning kit based on the new-generation BMW M6 . Today Manhart offers a second look to the sports coupe and came up with a more powerful, more aggressively looking M6 coupe.

The new kit is called MH6 700, which is a clear indication of the 700-plus horses at play under the hood. In order to obtain this amazing power increase, the Manhart equipped the 4.4 liter, V-8 engine with a "Stage 4" performance kit that includes a remapped ECU, a Carbon-Air-Intake-System, and a new exhaust system with downpipes, sports catalytic converters and sports rear silencers made of stainless-steel.

Thanks to all these updates, the V-8 engine delivers a total of 743 horsepower and 702 pound-feet of torque. With the extra power in tow, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph now only takes 3.8 seconds and it can now hit a top speed of 198 mph.

Once Chevrolet dropped the newCorvette Stingray , it was just a matter of time before the convertible version would hit the market.

Today was the day, as the new Stingray Convertible made its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show .

The convertible version is nearly identical to the coupe version, except of course, its three-ply fabric top that opens and closes at speeds up to 30 mph. The convertible version also features sound-absorbing padding and a glass rear window, which both contribute to a quieter cabin and a more premium appearance.

The new Stingray Convertible will be put on sale in late 2013.

Updated 04/26/13: GM has just released nearly all of the pricing details on the Corvette Stingray Convertible, as well as standard features and options. See the details after the jump.

The holiday season is here and just to help you out with some gift ideas, here’s one special collector’s model that you might want to get for someone. It is a 1/12-scale Lamborghini Countach model built by the Japanese company Goodsmile. In total, this model is 345 mm (13.6 inches) long, 157.7 mm (6.2 inches) wide and 89 mm (3.5 inches) tall.

There’s no denying the fact that enthusiasts love to collect scale models of classics , as well as modern cars. There are quite a few brands that make detailed works of art and the one from Goodsmile doesn’t come cheap.

This Lamborghini Countach LP400 in 1/12 scale will set you back ¥120,000, which is about $1200 at the current rates. Yes, that’s a lot but if you look closely, the cars are built with utmost attention to detail. Goodsmile actually scanned the full-size car, using modern 3D scanning techniques to achieve this sort of perfection. Each of the 500 parts are meticulously die-cast, or formed in ABS or resin to give it the perfect shape and size. The models are so perfect that not even an inch of deviation is spared.

The classic scissor doors swivel up to reveal the supercar ’s uber-cool interior. The engine bay door also opens, so that one can glance at the glorious V-12 engine that resides beneath. The cabin light turns on when the doors are swung open, headlights popup and instrument panel glows much like the real thing. The tires are hollow so that the weight of the car squashes them against the ground surface giving it a more authentic look. Rounding out this realistic model are wheels that you can remove and bolt back with a specially provided tool. Now, that’s really cool!

The unfortunate thing is that the models will not be ready for shipping until October 2014, so you will have to wrap up a picture of the model this Christmas and tell the receiver that it will arrive in about a year’s time. Alternatively, this could be an early idea for next Christmas.

McLaren P1

Imagine driving a car on a rainy day with no windshield wipers. Sure, water-repelling chemicals help a bit, but without wipers, driving could get tricky. Modern automobiles are a result of over 100 years of evolution, and today’s supercars are unlike anything the father of the automobile would’ve dreamed of.

The 21st-century automobile is a complex system of mechanical and electronic parts, but some old bits, like the windshield wipers, are still a part of each and every car that rolls out of its respective factory. Well, McLaren has now embarked on a quest to completely revolutionize the concept of the windshield wiper.

The company plans to replace the mechanical wiper with an invisible force that would make these parts unnecessary. According to McLaren ’s chief designer, Frank Stephenson, McLaren is currently working on a system that will use high-frequency sound waves across the windshield to keep it free of all debris, which is similar to the system used on modern fighter jets today.

Modern supercars do look like road-going fighter jets and use carbon composites and other materials from the aeronautics industry, so why not add more aerospace technology to the mix?

Mechanical wipers cause substantial aerodynamic loses and when it comes to supercars, like the McLaren P1 , engineers spend months on end perfecting its aero-performance.So, the industry would definitely benefit if wipers as we know are replaced by sound waves.

What McLaren in planning, is to use an ultrasonic transducer to emit 30 kHz sound waves to help debris just bounce off the windshield. Of course, this a more simplified explanation and we’re sure it’s much more complicated than that.

There is no word on when this technology may be ready.

The Audi RS7 is maybe one Audi model that doesn’t need any upgrades to make it more awesome than it already is. It features a muscular 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 that delivers 560 horsepower between 5,700 and 6,600 rpm, and 516 pound-feet of torque between 1,750 and 5,500 rpm, which is rather powerful for its class and enough to launch it to 60 mph in a supercar -like 3.7 seconds.

ABT Sportsline is well known for pushing Audis to their limits, and it decided the RS7 is ripe for a boost in power. So. it came up with a kit for the four-door coupe that includes an ABT Engine Control combined with a new exhaust system with "New Generation" Power S.

These changes bump the mighty 4.0-liter V-8 to either 666 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque or 700 horsepower and 649 pound-feet of torque, depending on the level you choose. The most powerful version can hit a top speed of 198 mph, and we estimate the 0-to-60 mph time to be around 3.5 seconds..

1988 Sledgehammer Corvette

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport can do 267 mph. The McLaren F1 from the 1990s could reach 240 mph. Not just once or twice, but given a straight enough road and a private police force to keep traffic out of the way, these cars can do those speeds all day long. You would probably need to carry a fuel tanker and semi full of spare tires along, but that’s the cost of having that much fun.

The Mclaren F1 had been the fastest production car for some time. Until, the Bugatti Veyron came along. Even before the McLaren F1 was conceived, the Ferrari F40 was the fastest production car with a top speed of 201 mph. However, things could have been very different if Callaway had made a claim for the title.

The Sledgehammer, which was essentially a hopped up and seriously modded Corvette, was developed in the 1980s and featured some of the most advanced aerodynamics for its time. So, why did this Corvette require such sleek aerodynamics? Well, to allow the Callaway Sledgehammer to hit its mammoth top speed of would top out at 254.76 mph.The Sledgehammer hit this top massive top speed on October 26th, 1988 with John Lingenfelter behind the wheel.

The aptly named Sledgehammer achieved what the Bugatti Veyron could do almost two decades later. Now you have the opportunity to own the Sledgehammer — one of the rarest cars on Earth — as it is set to cross the auction block. Unfortunately, the winning bidder won’t be permitted to drive it on public roads.

McLaren will make just 375 examples of the P1 hypercar and each one of them is sold. Now that there are none left, one would have to wait for a P1 to pop up on the used-car market. Almost certainly, it won’t come cheap, as the standard car costs over a million dollars and given that 73 percent of the 375 units have been ordered with various options and personalized interiors, finding a basic, used McLaren P1 would be pretty difficult.

Having said that, if you do happen to have $2 million in spare cash lying around and have the urge to buy one for yourself, then you’re in luck. A dealership in Dubai is offering a used McLaren P1 for sale. Keep in mind that the term "used" is more of a technicality than anything, as it actually has zero miles on the odometer. The dealership bought the car direct from McLaren, which technically makes it a used car. This is currently the only known McLaren P1 for sale.

This specific example of the McLaren P1 has a yellow exterior with carbon-fiber trims and a black interior. You can checkout the car here.

If you are looking for a cheap, front-wheel-drive hot hatchback, then this isn’t the one for you. It is a Mercedes Benz A Class, and it’s got a masterfully crafted AMG engine under that custom hood. Welcome to the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG .

This one has been wrapped in yellow gloss and a RevoZport kit, which includes the aero vanes on the front bumper, splitter, a rear spoiler, rear diffuser, and much more. The yellow color does drum up thoughts of the SLS AMG Black Series supercar, which Shmee150 rightly points out. It actually does go well with the A45, especially with the contrasting black theme.

The hood is one-piece, carbon-fiber unit and so are the wing mirrors. The roof of this A45 has also been blacked-out, as are the windows. Even the grille with the three-pointed star standing proud has been neatly incorporated into the theme. The wheels, which are in matte black, are from Brabus and the calipers are coated in solid red.

Then we come to the interior. The A45 AMG has one of the finest interiors in its segment. The influence of the SLS AMG supercar can be found here, as well. There is leather, Alcantara and red stitching. The dials are lined with brushed steel and so are the triple air-con vents. Altogether, a superb job, we must say.

The Porsche 911 is a special car; no doubt about that. The 911’s following faithful are a committed group of people who appreciate the 911 for its driving prowess, its handling abilities, and of course, its rich German heritage. The little two-door, rear engine sports coupe has come along way in 50 years, but it has never forgotten where it came from.

Porsche decided to throw itself a little 50th anniversary party with this beautiful example of a 2013 911 Carrera S. Quite a few things are different about the car that make it unmistakably special, but perhaps the most special aspect is its limited production number of just 1,963. Any Porsche fanatic could instantly spot the blatant reference to the year 1963, which is when the 911 was originally introduced.

Porsche decided to switch things up a bit with the 1,963 anniversary edition 911s to be built. They all feature the wide-body work from the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4, but are only rear-wheel drive. The exterior receives a heaping helping of chrome bits not normally found on the Carrera S, while the interior features throwback cues, like houndstooth cloth seats with leather bolsters and green-colored instrument cluster markings. Even the 20-inch wheels pay homage to the original “Fuchs” wheels of the ’60s.

Just like 50 years ago, the horizontally-opposed engine sits out back, however, this example makes a few more ponies – 430 to be exact. Hooked to Porsche’s PDK transmission, the 911 needs only 3.8 seconds to hit 60 mph on its way to a top speed of 185 mph. Upping the exclusivity, the anniversary edition makes even more power than the standard 911. Porsche made the Powerkit standard equipment, including the Sport Chrono Package and sport exhaust system.

Whether you’re a Porsche junkie or not, much appreciation and respect is due towards this 911. It celebrates 50 years of an industry leader - one that kept other companies up at night figuring out how to best such an unbeatable sports coupe.
