Ford Almost Gave Us a Mid-Engine Mustang BOSS 429 In 1969
Performance versions of the Ford Mustang have always been sought-after, by collectors. We have models like the original Shelby GT350 R, Shelby GT500, or BOSS 302, but for many, the top of the cherry, the big daddy, is considered to be the BOSS 429. But for all its performance credentials, the BOSS 429 had weight-distribution issues, which is why, in 1969, Ford decided to experiment with a mid-engine version of the BOSS 429, dubbed the LID Mustang.
2021 Ferrari Roma Fuego By DMC
When Ferrari launched the Roma back in 2019 we were impressed by its looks. The small front-engined, 2+2 grand tourer based on the Portofino looked like no other Ferrari in the lineup and was ready to take on the competition. If you ask us, the Roma is a supercar that needs no improvement. But of course, there are people out there who do not agree. This is the case with the German tuner DMC who now only improved the looks of the Roma, but also found a way to put more power under the hood.
2021 Pogea Lorenzo CLS63S 4M
Mercedes’ need to electrify its entire lineup killed a lot of cool cars, including the CLS 63 S AMG Shooting Brake. Eduard Pogea of Pogea Racing wanted to give special attention to this car and created his own project based on the CLS 63S. The car was built especially for him, so do not expect to see this package available for order.
2022 Audi RS6-S by ABT
In June 2021 ABT was presenting the ‘Johann Abt Signature Edition’” - a model based on the Audi RS6 Avant built to commemorate the company’s 125th anniversary. It was limited to only 64 units, and, because of its 790 horsepower under the hood, it enjoyed huge success. Actually, it was sold out in no time.
At the customers’ request, ABT is offering a successor for it: the RS6-S. The new model was launched at the same time as the RSQ8-S and will be available starting January 2022.
This Reimagined 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Is a Family Heirloom With An Awesome History
The Chevrolet Corvette has established itself as the definitive American sports car. Eight generations later, the car’s legacy is running strong and we have been lucky enough to have gotten many cool versions of the “Vette”. But some people have their own version of the perfect Corvette and Richard Smith, who was a GM technician, went to great lengths to build his vision of the perfect 1968 Chevrolet Corvette. This is the story of a 1968 Corvette named “the Beast”.
2022 Audi RSQ8-S by ABT
Back in 2020, ABT announced the RSQ8-R - a package based on the Audi RS Q8 that increased the power up to a total of 700 horsepower. Of course, the car was sold in no time and customers asked for a replacement. Their wishes will come true as, in January 2022, ABT will be offering a new package for the Q8 RS: the new RSQ8-S.
2021 G-Power G4M Bi-Turbo and G3M Bi-Turbo
G-Power is famous for its upgrade kits for the BMW models. As it was to be expected, the new BMW M3 and the M4 with their striking kidney grilles caught the tuner’s attention too and they both received some serious power boost. Both packages - called G3M and G4M - will be available for order starting December 2021.
2021 Ferrari Roma By Novitec
Ferrari Roma is a front-engined, 2+2 grand tourer that came to attack on cars like Aston Martin DB11. For a Ferrari priced a little over $220k it had enough power and looks to actually put competition in real trouble. As it was to be expected, the car caught Novitec’s attention who decided there is room for more power under the hood.
2021 Brabus 800 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4Matic
Mercedes unveiled the Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC almost two years ago, and it is an SUV that pretty much needs no improvement. It comes with 550 horsepower under the hood, a luxurious interior, and an exterior look that will make most of the luxury SUVs out there jealous.
Brabus however thinks the Maybach GLS can be improved even further, so it came up with the Brabus 800 package that will transform the Maybach GLS in all aspects: exterior, interior, and performance.
2021 Manhart MH8 700 Cabriolet
With 617 horsepower under the hood the M8 Convertible is a car many BMW fans dream about. However, the M8 Convertible is also an expensive car: prices start from $142,500 for the base version and from $155,500 for the competition one.
There is also the option to go with the M850i Convertible and pay $109,400. For the extra money, you can go to Manhart and ask for an upgrade. Its latest MH8 700 does just that: takes the M850i and transforms it into a mean looking car, with a lot more power than the M8.
2021 Aston Martin DBX By Mansory
The DBX is the first luxury SUV offered by Aston Martin. But, despite its price - about $180k, the DBX is not really a powerful SUV. It offers indeed an impressive amount of luxury features for the interior, but both the powertrain and the exterior looks could use some improvement. And this is where Mansory comes into the picture!
2021 Alfa Romeo QV600 By Manhart
Alfa Romeo resurrected the Giulia name back in 2015 and it immediately became a serious contender in its segment. Of course, the top of the cherry was the Quadrofoglio (QV), which was only recently overshadowed by the track-focused Giulia GTAm. But what happens if you want the QV’s usability with performance greater than that of the GTAm? Manhart came up with a solution in the form of the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV 600.
2021 Ferrari F8 Spider N-Largo by Novitec
Back in September 2021, Novitec announced its first tuning kit for the Ferrari F8 Spider. Now, after more than a month, the famous tuner finally announced the N-Largo package for the Italian roadster. Of course, the F8 Spider N-Largo looks very similar to the F8 N-Largo - the kit based on the Ferrari F8 Tributo. Just like the kit offered for the coupe version, the F8 Spider N-Largo will be limited to only 15 units.
1966 Chevrolet Corvette King Rat
Cars can be classified into a few different categories with regards to how known their existence is. You have the well-known, the rare, the obscure, and the mysterious. And while the Chevrolet Corvette is certainly a well-known name, even amongst non-car people, the Corvette King Rat by Keith Bell is certainly a mystery. Nevertheless, we managed to uncover some details about it.
2021 Manhart MHX3 600
With 503 horsepower under the hood, the BMW X3 M Competition is one of the most powerful compact SUVs out there. Plus that, it is also quite decent looking.
But in true Manhart spirit, there was something about the X3 M Competition that needed to be updated too. The result? MHX3 600! You would think that the 600 stands for the amount of power under the hood, but it is not, as the MHX3 600 in fact delivers a total of 635 horsepower!
Let’s find out how that was even possible!
2021 Volkswagen Golf R Variant By PS-Sattlerei
In Europe, the Volkswagen Golf is a very popular car: you can spot one at literally every corner! Well, at least the standard version, as when it comes to the GTI or the R versions things are a little bit different. Of course, that’s because there are not as many in production as the standard version.
This doesn’t mean though that the Golf R doesn’t enjoy a lot of attention, especially from tuners! Just recently, ABT Sportsline came with a pretty cool update kit for the Golf R hatch, and today is time to talk about an upgrade for the Golf R Variant.
2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan By Klassen
On the U.S. market, a base Rolls Royce Cullinan is priced at $330,000. Not the cheapest SUV out there, but not very bad considering we are looking at a super-luxurious SUV. Then again, if you think that the prices for the Aston Martin DBX start from $180k and the ones for the Lamborghini Urus from a little over $210k, maybe the Cullinan is a bit expensive!
But, how would you feel about a $1 million Cullinan? Or, to be more precise €833,000 - or about $965,000 at the current exchange rate. A model like this actually does exist and it comes from the German tuner Klasses. Why is it so expensive? Lets find out!
