A Slurry of TRD Parts Is Coming For the Lexus LC Coupe

New TRD gear makes the Lexus LC sportier

TRD, short for Toyota Racing Division, has been providing performance parts for Toyota vehicles for more than a decade now. The more luxurious Lexus models aren’t usually included among TRD’s projects, but the LC has just become an exception. The parts are available through TRD’s Japanese site and they cover both the coupe and convertible models.

Liberty Walk Has Created the Craziest Wide Body Kit for the 2020 A90 Toyota Supra

Liberty Walk Has Created the Craziest Wide Body Kit for the 2020 A90 Toyota Supra

There’s a fine line between madness and genius and the jury’s still out on this one

We’ve seen Liberty Walk churn out wide body kits for Lamborghinis, Mustangs, Porsches, and BMWs, so we know what sort of awesomeness can come out of its workshops. Speaking of BMWs, the tuner’s latest work adds a racy flavour to the 2020 Toyota Supra but from where we’re sitting, it looks a tad over the top.

This $550 Lift Kit for the Subaru Crosstrek Is Actually Worth Having

This $550 Lift Kit for the Subaru Crosstrek Is Actually Worth Having

Add more ruggedness to your Crosstrek with this affordable aftermarket treat

The Subaru Crosstrek isn’t poised to win any beauty contests. It doesn’t shine when it comes to cabin excitement, just like it doesn’t shine if you’re looking for nippy accelerations off the line.

However, the Crosstrek wasn’t designed to impress visually, nor through performance. It has one task, and one task only: offer a tad more rugged character than a hatchback without compromising on ride and handling. And its this character that gets a boost with a little help from Crawford Performance.

This New Suspension Lift Kit Is Exactly What Your 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Needs

This kit will increase your Ranger’s off-roading prowess

Ford is not bringing the Ranger Raptorto the States and aftermarket companies are capitalizing on this vacuum. They are selling equipment for the Ranger that offers them Raptor-like performance and drive. The most popular products are the ones used in the Ranger Raptor as well.

The Ranger Raptor and the F-150 Raptor benefit from Fox shocks, and Roush is here to offer the same for the 2019-2020 Ranger. Roush Performance is offering a new lift kit that could transform your Ranger into a truck with the Raptor’s off-roading capabilities… well, to an extent.

Check Out This Hand-Built 2JZ Toyota Supra Laying Down 2,033 Horsepower on the Dyno

That’s the old Supra, not the BMW Supra

Part of what made the previous generation Supra a cult car was the 2JZ engine’s versatility when it came to tuning. And that sort of reputation doesn’t simply wash away, not even when there’s a new Supra running around the block. And this video is perhaps the best testament of the A80 Supra’s legendary status.

1967 Shelby GT500CR Carbon Fiber By Classic Recreations and SpeedKore

1967 Shelby GT500CR Carbon Fiber By Classic Recreations and SpeedKore

This is the first carbon-fiber-bodied Shelby Mustang ever made

Remember the Shelby GT500CR 900S? Silly question, of course you do. The 770-horsepower (also supercharged) muscle car concocted by Classic Recreations is not the kind of car that leaves your retina that easily and to further reinforce that statement, it just got a new all-carbon-fiber-everything attire.

We Insist That You Don't Check Out This Larte Design Off-Road Tuning Kit for the Aurus Senat

We Insist That You Don’t Check Out This Larte Design Off-Road Tuning Kit for the Aurus Senat

Cover your eyes, turn around, and run as fast as you can

Larte Design plays in the same obnoxious tuning league as Mansory. You can expect the tuner to shell out audacious designs and the worst part is that people will actually buy those and flaunt them on the street. Speaking of audacious, try not to cringe at the sight of Larte’s latest work on Russia’s Aurus Senat.

For $3,000 You Can Have Lambo Doors Installed on your 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette

For $3,000 You Can Have Lambo Doors Installed on your 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette

Add extra rice to your Chevy Corvette C8 with doors that go up and allow you to look silly when getting in and out

Most Lamborghinis have abandoned them, tuners consider them a relic of the ’00s and you’d be hard-pressed to find any modern car they are suited to, yet, for just $3,000, Eikon Motorsports offers to fit scissor doors to your C8 for that obnoxious NFS Underground 2 feel. Sadly, light bars and smoke canons are not included.

Restored: 1970 Ford F-100 Short Bed Pickup By Icon 4x4

A classic, timeless design infused with modern engineering and aesthetics

Icon 4x4, a California-based aftermarket company, is known for restoring classic models to perfection. The best part about the company is that they don’t mess around with the essence of the vehicle. The vehicles still have the original retro feel to them, but are reimagined for modern use. In short, you can get yourself a daily driver with classic styling and modern functionality.

The company’s latest project is a 1970 Ford F-100 short bed pickup truck. The company’s founder and lead designer Jonathan Ward found it on Craigslist. The model on sale was in good condition with the original paint scheme and nothing major changed. Fortunately, the company retained the original looks but made it a better daily driver.

2020 Porsche 911 Coupe And Cabrio By TechArt

2020 Porsche 911 Coupe And Cabrio By TechArt

Another subtle yet exquisite touch from the German tuner

TechArt’s love affair with Porsche started in 1987 and since then, the German tuner has been churning out all sorts of treatments aimed mostly at the 911 but also at Porsche’s other models, like the Panamera.

The company’s latest work is dedicated to the new 992-gen 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S. It’s also compatible with both the coupé and the cabriolet, offering sound, design, as well as power upgrades. Let’s check it out.

2020 Ferrari 812 Superfast Softkit By Mansory

2020 Ferrari 812 Superfast Softkit By Mansory

You’re about to experience the subtle side of Mansory

Yes, Mansory has a subtle side. Known for audacious widebody kits, flashy wheels, and in general a lot of distasteful tuning jobs, the tuner shows that it indeed has a down-to-Earth side that manages not to ruin a supercar’s well-balanced stock appearance.

Ford's New Upgrade Package For The Ranger Offers A Significant Power Boost

Ford’s New Upgrade Package For The Ranger Offers A Significant Power Boost

It’s just a power upgrade and doesn’t substitute for a Ranger Raptor

Ford is giving us a faster Ranger, but it’s not the Ranger Raptor. For years now, Ford has been dilly-dallying on bringing the Ranger Raptor to the States despite there being a strong interest from enthusiasts.

Instead, Ford Performance has introduced a new performance calibration for the truck. This gives the Ranger an additional 45 horses and 60 pound-feet of torque. The upgrade is priced quite reasonably and costs less than $1,000. Any takers?

2020 McLaren Senna by Novitec

Another extensive package that ticks the performance and design boxes

The Novitec-McLaren tuning affair has had its fair share of episodes up to this point. In fact, the German tuner offers one of the most tasteful packages for McLaren’s line of products and although it worked on the Senna in the past, the house just released a new bundle of tweaks for the British supercar.

Godzilla Engine In the Ford Super Duty Could Receive A Mighty Boost Thanks To A New Whipple Supercharger

Godzilla Engine In the Ford Super Duty Could Receive A Mighty Boost Thanks To A New Whipple Supercharger

We’re talking about 700 horses here!

Not long ago Ford launched the 7.3-liter Godzilla engine for its Super Duty pickup truck series. The engine provides the best-in-class power and torque figures, but it looks like things are about to get even better.

Ford’s long-time supplier Whipple is working on a supercharger for the Godzilla engine that could give it mad levels of power. Photos of the supercharger surfaced online, but the final unit will look slightly different. Even more important, the supercharger is going to arrive eventually and we could have a Godzilla engine that’s churning out 700 horses! Does this mean the engine will be used in other Ford products as well?

Papadakis Racing's 1000-HP Toyota Supra Is Coming Up Nicely

Papadakis Racing’s 1000-HP Toyota Supra Is Coming Up Nicely

Not quite there yet, but so far, the progress is hefty

The name Papadakis Racing popped up on many tuning aficionados’ radars when the team signalled its intentions of boosting the 3.0-liter BMW-sourced straight-six engine of the new 2020 Supra to in excess of 1,000 horsepower.

Not an easy task, to say the least, but with the right expertise and lots of work, bumping up the new Supra’s power output to a level that would make its predecessor proud is actually attainable.

This Car Customization Shop Can Make Your Toyota MR2 Look Like a Porsche Carrera GT, Lamborghini Veneno, or McLaren P1

This Car Customization Shop Can Make Your Toyota MR2 Look Like a Porsche Carrera GT, Lamborghini Veneno, or McLaren P1

Along with a bunch of other tuning services

Remember the fake Ferraris that spread on the internet some years ago? Well, we’ve got something better. Fake McLarens, fake Lamborghinis, and pretty much all the fake supercars you can think of coming from a custom car shop in Thailand.

It was only last year that the Civic Police of Santa Catarina in Brazil dismantled a bogus workshop that built replica Ferraris and Lamborghinis that wore the two brand’s official badges. Thailand’s PS Modify, however, does’t work that way, as it sticks its own badge to the supercar-inspired body kits it churns out.

Racechip Can Tune the Mercedes-AMG A45 to Near-500 Horsepower On the Cheap

Racechip Can Tune the Mercedes-AMG A45 to Near-500 Horsepower On the Cheap

These guys can make it happen for you

The world of hot hatches is brimming with sharp-looking, go-fast pocket rockets but as of 2019, there’s one that rules them all. Enter the Mercedes-AMG A45.

Unveiled in the summer of 2019, the Mercedes-AMG A45 introduced the world’s most powerful 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Under the hood of the top-spec S model, the M139 mill cranks out 310 kW (415 horsepower, 412 PS) and 500 Newton-meters of twist or around 369 pound-feet of torque. These guys, though, can consideraby improve on those numbers by just tweaking the car’s software.

You Can Now Have a Porsche Boxster Shooting Brake, But Is It Blasphemy?

You Can Now Have a Porsche Boxster Shooting Brake, But Is It Blasphemy?

The jury is still out on this one, so we need your opinions

Look. We’d take a wagon over a high-riding SUV any day of the week. Perhaps that’s why the undersigned loved the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo so much that he pledged to buy one someday.

The thing is, however, Porsche and station wagons don’t exactly go hand in hand. People went out of their minds when the carmaker introduced the Cayenne, so we doubt that an out-and-out family hauler built by Porsche would get the fans jumping for joy. That said, what about a Boxster-based shooting brake? Is that something you’d take out for a spin to the hypermarket and back?

There Is Life for the Blackwing V-8, But Outside Cadillac (Updated)

There Is Life for the Blackwing V-8, But Outside Cadillac (Updated)

It looks like the Blackwing V-8 is heading to Italy to power a new sportscar

We’re back with extra info on the topic of Cadillac’s Blackwing V-8 engine. The 4.2-liter double-overhead cam mill had a short life inside the now-dead CT6-V and by the looks of it, Cadillac won’t drop it inside the new Escalade or the souped-up CT5.

Therefore, one must ask: is it ever going to be used inside another car? Believe it or not, the V-8 might live on but not inside a Caddy, according to a recent report.
