We’re usually not prone to overt praises on these pages, but when it comes to Canadian tuner SR Auto Group, you can’t help but appreciate the level of work it does on its programs.
SR Auto Group has, on multiple occasions, taken a Lamborghini Aventador for a custom spin. And when presented with another of its kind to work on, it didn’t hesitate to put its hardhat on and get to work - again. That’s why we respect SR; no car is too difficult to give some aftermarket lovin’.
This time, the subject is a 2013 Nero Pegaso Aventador, a supercar that not only speaks the language of speed and power, but does so while wearing a menacing look on its face.
At the end of the day, SR Auto Group is all about bringing out the full potential of any super car it comes across. That includes the Aventador and to its credit, SR Auto Group never seems tire of giving the exotic Italian bull the respect it so richly deserves.

If you followed us in the past few months, you have likely noticed that when it comes about cars, gold has become the new black. With this in mind, SR Auto Group has designed a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV.
SR Auto Group teamed up with PUR Wheels and equipped the supercar with a set of Monaco Gold wheels, which are sized 19 inches up front and 20 inches at the rear. Even better, this particular Aventador features the first set of Monaco Gold PUR 8IGHT’s ever produced.
You have to admit; the gold fits the wheels perfectly and works in perfect harmony with the car’s white exterior paint and numerous carbon fiber elements.
Under the hood, the Murcielago keeps its usual 6.5-liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 670 horsepower. The Super Veloce hits 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and can hit a top speed of 212 mph, so we have no issue with SR Auto Group not touching the engine.
It’s been a while since we last heard something about the Hummer H2, but now the folks over at SR Auto Group have decided to bring it back to our attention with its sweet "Project Magnum." Based on the H2, the new Project Magnum has soared sky high since our first encounter many years ago. Since its conception, it has gone through a couple phases to evolve to where it’s at today.
The project started with the addition of a new Fabtech lift kit and a new set of 20-inch wheels, featuring a matte-black face and a gloss-black lip. The wheels are wrapped in monstrous off road tires sized at 40×15.5×20.
The package continues with a set of Brembo brakes and a Hotchkis rear sway bar. For the exterior, SR Auto Group opted for a Leios matte black paint, a wide fender flare kit, and a strut grille kit. The last piece of the package is a throaty Magnaflow exhaust system that makes the engine sound even more beastly.
Now Project Magnum is ready to enter the new year with a brand new look and sound!
Many of us are still under the influence of the beautiful GranCabrio MC that was displayed at the 2012 Paris Auto Show, so we decided to stay on that path and bring you another Maserati to admire. Meet the luscious GranTurismo tuned by our favorite American tuner: SR Auto Group.
This is actually an updated version of the Deathbolt package introduced to the market in September 2011, but the tuner strayed away from the original sleep package to provide the sports car with a more distinguished look. Painted in a bright white exterior finish, the sports car now sits on a new set of PUR 4OUR Depth wheels sized 21" at front and 22" at the rear. The wheels combine a very cool finish of modern black and davinci red. The last addition is a new KW Clubsport Coilover system that gives the car a lower and more powerful look.
All we can say is that this car looks amazing and we definitely want it in our garage!
In August 2012, Canadian tuner SR Auto Group unveiled their latest program for the Ferrari 458 Italia, dubbed "Project Ice Blade". Apparently, we used that word "latest" a little too prematurely because SR Auto Group has a new program for the Italian supercar.
Calling this one "Project Black Mist," SR Auto Group once again used aerodynamic parts from Italian tuner Novitec Rosso. With the help of the Novitec kit - it includes a front lip, a rear diffuser, and a rear aero spoiler - SR Auto Group managed to enhance the lines and curves of the Italian bad boy. From there, the paint was matched to the original exterior, which, as SR describes was the reason why the program was christened ’Black Mist.’
Rounding out the upgrades, as per usual, are a new set of wheels that SR picked themselves. In this case, the chased wheels are 21" (on the front) and 22" (on the rear) modern gloss black PUR NE1 Monoblock wheels.
Suffice to say, it’s another program that SR Auto Group can tuck under their belts. At this point, we’re just happy that they’ve been hitting these projects out of the park.
SR Auto Group is dropping it like its hot!
The Canadian aftermarket company has been releasing a number of new programs lately and as sure as the sun is hot, they’ve been smacking their programs straight out of the park. The latest program is called "Project Cyphur" and was built for the Mercedes E63 AMG. Considering the car already carries an AMG badge, SR Auto Group decided to give it a full aesthetic makeover instead.
The first order of business was enlisting new body components from Brabus, considered one of the best Mercedes tuners in the world. The kit includes a full carbon fiber font lip and a pair of carbon fiber air events. This is followed by the removal of the front fenders, which were then replaced with Brabus front fenders. LED side markers have also been added as well as a carbon fiber diffuser over at the rear.
The last order of business, as always, is fitting the car with a new set of shiny digs. For this one, SR Auto Group added a set of Design 6IX Depth in “Rose Gold” PUR Wheels.
Like the gift that keeps on giving, SR Auto Group is at it again with a new aftermarket program for one of Germany’s finest luxury saloons.
Called Project Crimson Crusader, the tuner extraordinaire prepared a Porsche Panamera GTS with a program that’s oddly similar to a program they built for the Ferrari 458 Italia, or as they called that one, "Project Ice Blade."
The contrasting white and crimson red color of the Panamera GTS matches extremely well with the new set of wheels - 22" Modern Black Face, Davinci Red Lip PUR 4OUR DEPTH wheels - SR Auto Group fitted to the car. From there, the aftermarket company took the liberty to improve the Panamera GTS’ suspension, lowering the car’s height in order to accommodate the new wheels and the large wheel wells, all while retaining the luxury saloon’s naturally comfortable ride.
As always, SR Auto Group left the engine untouched, opting to keep its 4.8-liter V8 engine that produces 430 horsepower and 385 lb/ft of torque figures intact. Not that it’s a bad thing because on its own, the Panamera GTS is already capable of hitting 0-62 mph in just 4.5 seconds with a matching top speed of 180 mph.
We don’t know if it’s a case of separation anxiety but considering that the Lamborghini Gallardo is nearing its end, there appears to be a growing number of aftermarket programs for the Italian super car.
Not one to be left out on the loop, SR Auto Group is back with another project and surprise, surprise, it’s for the Gallardo Spyder.
Called "Project Mastermind" - love the name! - the program doesn’t carry any performance modifications because SR Auto Group doesn’t roll like that. What they’re adept at, though, are aesthetic enhancements and that’s exactly what they did, dressing up the Gallardo Spyder in a Modern Matte Black paint finish to go with a new set of spicy 20" PUR 2WO Monoblock wheels.
Despite not having any engine upgrades, the Gallardo Spyder still packs quite a wallop, thanks to a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 550 horsepower and 398 lb/ft of torque. That translates to a 0-62 mph of just 4.2 seconds with a top speed of 198 mph.
The title to SR Auto Group’s newest tuning package couldn’t be any more fitting because a lot of people could state that owning a Ford Mustang would constitute their automotive American Dream. Owning this tuned-up Mustang would probably be even better.
SR Auto Group have added just enough spark to the muscle car to make it leaner, meaner, and more muscular than it already was. This was achieved by a new set of matte black 18" Niche Circuit wheels and a set of H&R lowering springs that lower the Mustang’s center of gravity. As a result, the handling is more responsive and direct.
No big changes were made to the Mustang’s performance, but the tuner did add a simple Magnaflow catback exhaust system that freed up the airflow while giving this beast a nice growl. A sprint booster was also installed to improve the throttle response and offer more control over this machine.
When it comes to aesthetic and aerodynamic modifications, SR Auto Group is one of the premier aftermarket companies for the job. Time and again, these boys come out with something spectacular, and their latest project adds even more truth to what is becoming a growing sentiment in the industry.
The project is called Ice Blade and it’s a program for the mighty Italian supercar, the Ferrari 458 Italia. SR Auto Group describes it s a program that’s "vivid, adventurous, and simply brilliant."
With the help and use of a Novitec Rosso body kit, SR Auto Group was able to turn its evolutionary idea into reality. The creation of this bold and unique program begins with Novitec Rosso carbon fiber body kit, which includes new components like the front splitter, side skirts, door handles, mirrors, a rear spoiler, and a rear diffuser that flows effortlessly into the pure white exterior, creating a look that speaks to the car’s Ice Blade nickname.
From there, SR Auto Group fitted the 458 Italia with a new set of 21" and 22" PUR 4OUR DEPTH wheels that carry their own nickname: DaVinci Red.
For a car that really doesn’t need a nickname to give it even more swag, the Ferrari 458 Italia does look a whole lot better as the Ice Blade.
Par for the course for the people behind this stunning program.
The CLS 63 AMG is a thing of beauty, yet it has a beast under its hood. Some people, however, would like their CLS to show a little more of its beastly side from the outside. To help satisfy the appetites of this group, SR Auto Group has just released a series of modifications to help make this powerful Benz a little more intimidating from the outside. They even have a pretty cool name for it: Project Maximus!
This Mercedes CLS 63 AMG boasts a Black Bison body kit by Wald International. Included in this kit is a stylish front bumper that has large side air intakes and a wide-mouth lower grille. Also integrated in the bumper are LED daytime running lights. This Black Bison kit also boasts new front fenders, which feature large heat extractors with black louvers and chrome strips, just behind the front wheels.
Down the side of this customized CLS 63 AMG, there is a set of side skirts that give just enough character to the Benz without taking away from its luxurious appearance. The rear end of this high-powered Mercedes boasts a bumper with louvered vents behind the rear wheels. Integrated with the bumper is a rear diffuser made of black plastic that gives the rear end a little contrast. On each side of the rear end is a dual-oval exhaust tip that exit from cutouts in the bumper. Finishing off the back end is a large trunk-mounted, lip-style spoiler.
On each corner of the CLS 63 AMG is a 20-inch Wald Renovatio alloy wheel wrapped in performance rubber. The rims have a slight contrast to them, as the face of the rim and its lip is done in chrome, but the edge of each of the 26 spokes is painted silver.
The model that SR Auto Group used for this build features the AMG Performance Pack, which boosts the 5.5-liter V-8 engine to 557 horsepower. SR Auto Group left this engine as is, so if you choose this build, the manufacturer’s warranty remains intact.
Overall, SR Auto Group did a nice job of adding just enough character and sport to the CLS 63 AMG without overdoing it and making it look over the top.
The Ferrari FF made its world debut in 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show and since then, the only major update it has received came from Novitec Rosso. Tuners just aren’t that excited about revamping Ferrari’s oddly shaped sports coupe and one look at the vehicle will shed some light for many as to why. Now, American tuner SR Auto Group is attempting to justify the FF’s existence by coming up with an upgrade package of their own. The package is called the FF Vindicator, which is surely SR Auto Group’s attempt at convincing us all that this will be the package to redeem the sports coupe.
This new kit was inspired by the Project Era which was based on the Ferrari 458 Italia. It consists of painting the car in a cool white finish and slapping on a new set of PUR wheels in a 1NE design. This setup may have worked for the 458 Italia, but that is another beast entirely. The Ferrari FF may have a 6,262 cc direct injection V12 engine that delivers 660 HP at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 503 lbs-ft 6,000 rpm, but its design is just a rolling pile of aluminum poop.
Whereas a lot of people will tell you how much they love Ferraris and Lamborghinis, we certainly don’t mind if we got our hands on a Maserati GranTurismo. Heck, it’s even better if that GranTurismo is the MC Stradale.
Noted tuner SR Auto Group loves the GranTurismo MC Stradale, too. So much, in fact, that they built a program for it called "Project Aurora." According to SR Auto Group, Project Aurora "is a sophisticated machine that has been transformed into a menacing beast." Appropriate description, especially when the Italian super car was dressed with a Frozen White exterior wrap with Matte Black accents while also being treated with a new H&R lowering suspension set-up and a new set of 21" and 22" PUR 1NE wheels finished in gloss black.
SR Auto Group opted to keep the engine straight, but even without any enhancements, the GranTurismo MC Stradale is as beast in its own right, one that’s capable of producing 450 horsepower and 376 lbs/ft of torque from its 4.7-liter V8 engine.
No explanations needed here, folks. Project Aurora is a bright, hot, and smoking piece of GranTurismo MC Stradale awesomeness.
When it comes about the Lamborghini Aventador there isn’t much you can change. But as usual, its the little changes that make a great car looking even greater. And this is where tuners like SR Auto Group came into focus and they do their magic.
The tuner’s latest tuning kit is called "Project Supremacy" and we tend to believe they couldn’t find a better name for it. Just watch the images and you will agree with us. But do not imagine that SR Auto did some extraordinary changes. No! As usual they have only added a new set of wheels from PUR Wheels. In a 20/21" setup, featuring a modern matte-black face and the beautifully captivating, Rose Gold Lip, these new wheels seems to be just the right addition.
And when you add a Lamborghini Murcielago in the background then you definitely obtain an amazing combination. We’ll just hope you’ll enjoy it!
We’ve said this countless times on these pages, but it’s still worth repeating: we love it when a car is dressed in a matte black paint finish.
Even more so if the car in question comes with the kind of fantastic styling exhibited by the new 2012 BMW 650i Coupe. And so, like a prayer from the heavens, one of our favorite tuners decided to dress up the top-of-the-line 6-Series in matte black - to go with other styling enhancements - before giving a nickname befitting its new look: Shadow Walker.
To enhance the stylish two-tone exterior of the Shadow Walker, SR Auto Group combined the gloss black faces on the sports saloon with matte black inserts, resulting in a look that can only be described by our open-eyed stuttering upon seeing the photos of the car. SR Auto Group rounded out the exterior upheaval with a new set of 20" bespoke Niche wheels, further adding a beyond ridiculous, stealthy black look to the 650i Coupe.
More modifications are expected to be offered, but we couldn’t keep these photos of the Shadow Walker away from you. Chances are, it’s going to be somebody’s wallpaper pretty soon.
