2020 Porsche Cayenne Nebulus by BLACK BOX-RICHTER

2020 Porsche Cayenne Nebulus by BLACK BOX-RICHTER

All hands on deck for this scintillating program for the German SUV

With the arrival of super SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo now faces stiff competition from all corners of the market. The high-powered German SUV still commands plenty of respect and attention, but in those moments when it meets any of these new upstarts, a little aftermarket help wouldn’t be so bad to have. This program, in particular, offers a glimpse of what a Porsche Cayenne Turbo could end up as if enough aftermarket support goes into it. Mind you, this isn’t a one-tuner job; this is the work of several outfits, all coming together to build what could very well be one of the most impressive Cayenne Turbos on the market. There’s a heavy price to pay for this kind of work, but rest assured, German tuner HGP Turbo, Austrian vinyl wrap maker Black Box-Richter, clothing brand Nebulus, and designer Hajo Lemke of EightElevan Design developed a monster program for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

2020 BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe By AC Schnitzer

Famed Bimmer tuner takes its shot at Bavaria’s flagship M model

Like most cars, the M8 Competition Gran Coupe is far from perfect. It’s preposterously fast for a car that weighs in excess of two tons, and yet, the speed doesn’t really translate to the kind of enjoyable driving experience you’d expect from BMW’s range-topping model. Fortunately, AC Schnitzer is always there to answer the bell.

The German tuner known for developing programs for all sorts of Bimmers has come up with a program for the M8 Gran Coupe, one that addresses some of the perceived shortcomings of the M8 Competition Gran Coupe. The result is what you’d expect from AC Schnitzer.

Jubu Performance unveils Exige-based track beast ready to do battle with Porsche and Audi

Lotus built its reputation on the track by winning six Drivers’ Championships and seven Constructors’ Championships throughout the ’60s and ’70s and it was the road cars that benefitted the most from all that experience.

Nowadays, Lotus is prepping up the Evija, supposedly the most powerful production car ever, but race-going Lotuses are thin on the ground so it’s up to Jubu Performance and other tuners to get it done. The JP Zero is the latest Lotus-based supercar and, luckily, a 600-horsepower, $600,000 GT2 version will be available as well.

If you can’t buy a GT-R, buy a Copen and let Liberty Walk work its magic

You Can Now Make the Base Honda Civic Look a Lot Sportier Thanks to Mugen

When Mugen revealed its parts list for the 2020 Honda Civic Type R, it brought tons of carbon fiber, Alcantara, and some extreme exterior elements.

That is, arguably, a good thing, though, so let me explain to you what you can get for the base Civic hatch.

Project 107 is a Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC AMG On Steroids With A Racing Heart

This restomod is so special, it broke cover wearing a camo livery

The overflow of Porsche restomods of the last handful of years has us yearning for something different and this ’80s Mercedes-Benz SL with wide, race car-esque arches and seriously fat tires that wrap equally generous rims is the perfect antidote to the Porsche restomod craze. Built by Mechantronik, it’s been seen burning rubber throughout Germany and we think it may just be one of the coolest cars of its kind out there also because, well, we don’t really see resto-modded Mercs all that often.

Brabus is the biggest and most famous independent Mercedes-Benz tuner out there and the Germans have been fettling with products sporting the three-pointed star since the late ’70s which is why we were not surprised to find out that one of their most powerful creations, the $400,000 Rocket 900, puts out almost 280 horsepower more than the Mercedes-Maybach S650 it’s based on.

Here’s What a 2,300-Horsepower Lamborghini V-12 Sounds Like

Thanks to This Engine, You Might Be Able to Own a 2,300-Horsepower Lamborghini Sometime Soon

Lamborghini recently took the wraps off the track-only Essenza SCV12, an insane-looking beast motivated by Lamborghini’s most powerful iteration of its venerable V-12 yet at over 830 horsepower.

While that’s impressive, Lamborghini’s still very much against strapping turbos to its 12-cylinder masterpiece but tuners such as Steve Morris Engines show what these units can be made to do - in this case, deliver almost 2,300 horsepower at an ear-splitting 9,000 rpm.
