Edo Competition BMW M5 Touring Dark Edition

The German tunes over at Edo Competition have revealed their tuning program for the BMW M5 Touring. Known to develop aftermarket upgrades for exotic supercars, this time they took probably the most practical high performance vehicle out there and squeezed more hp from the power unit.

Dubbed the M5 Dark Edition, the V10 5.0-liter of the standard model has been modified and it now produces 542 hp (555 PS / 405 kW), which is considerably more than the regular 493 hp (500 PS / 368 kW). They managed to offer this power increase by recalibrating the ECU, installing new sport catalysts, sports air filter as well as a custom-made sports exhaust system. Aside from the increase in horsepower, the maximum torque is also up from 521 to 560 Nm.

While the standard M5 Touring has a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h), this tuned version will go all the way up to 190 mph (305 km/h). The 0-62 mph sprint is done in 4.2 seconds (0.5 quicker than before) while 0-124 mph takes less than ten seconds.

Design-wise, Edo Competition revised both the front and rear fascias and added a brand new spoiler out in the back. The M5 Touring now sits on 20-inch alloys which are wrapped around in Dunlop tires that measure 255/35 R20 in the front and 285/30 R20 for the back wheels.

edo Competition Mercedes SLR 722 Black Arrow

The guys over at edo Competition though that there is still room for improvement for the Mercedes SLR 722 so they’ve decided to take a crack at it. Wearing a matte black paint, this car rolls on 21-inch alloy wheels and is powered by a V8 5.5-liter supercharged engine that comes with a revised air intake, an optimized ECU and a new stainless steel sport exhaust system.

edo Competition Koenigsegg CCR

What do you get when you tune a supercar like the Koenigsegg CCR? You turn it into a hypercar! This is what the engineers at edo Competition had in mind. This tuning program is a result of a CCR owner that for reasons that I can’t understand, wanted more oomph under the hood. To satisfy his thirst for more power, the tuners modified the drive ratio and installed a remapped ECU. The result? Well, the V8 4.7-liter engine not only hits its torque peak earlier, but it also delivers more horsepower, to be more exact – 879 hp (891 PS / 655 kW).

EDO Lamborghini Murcielago LP750

Although most of us are waiting for the highly-anticipated Lamborghini Aventador (LP 700-4), it seems that the engineers over at EDO have decided to roll out a tuned Murcielago, dubbed LP 750. The car’s engine produces 750 hp and 546 lb.-ft of torque, good for a top speed of 365 km/h.

According to EDO Competition, this Murcielago is able to get to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 3.1 seconds, to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.7 seconds and to 186 mph (300 km/h) in 24.5 seconds.

As you might have guessed, all of these figures were accomplished by doing some extensive upgrade to the engine. The power kit features modified cylinder heads, a revised intake system that has a hand-made intake manifold, new air ducts and a high flow airbox. In addition, the LP 750 comes with catalytic converters, high performance exhaust headers, new mufflers, bucket tappets, more aggressive camshafts, high flow air filters and new exhaust tips. They also tweaked the car’s ECU.

The Lamborghini Murcielago LP 750 rides on ultra-lightweight 18/19 alloy rims, covered by Michelin 265/35 ZR 18 front tires and 345/30 ZR19 rear rubber.

No word about pricing but this kind of power doesn’t come cheap.

Edo Competition Porsche Panamera ‘Moby Dick’ Edition

The car is certainly worthy of its “Moby Dick” name after Herman Meville’s classic novel published in 1851. This beautiful Porsche Panamera got some serious additional power in the engine compartment as well as many other modifications brought to the exterior and the interior.

For the outside, Edo Competition collaborated with Mansory for developing the full bodykit that includes updated bumpers, a new bonnet, lowered side skirts and widened wheel arches. For improving the handling of the Panamera, the engineers installed a lowering module plus 22-inch rims that can be painted either to contrast or match the car’s exterior paint.

The most important aspect of this tuning program is without any doubt the improvements brought under the hood. The V8 twin-turbocharged engine is now capable of outputting 750 hp which is a hell of a lot more in comparison to the standard 550 hp – 50% more for those of you that didn’t do so good in math class. The Panamera “Moby Dick” Edition can reach 60 mph in less than 4 seconds from start, onto a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h) which is electronically limited. Another change brought over the standard model is the upgraded exhaust system.

Inside the cabin, Edo Competition used a combination of materials like carbon fiber, metal, wood and leather. For those of you that don’t like this combination, the Panamera‘s cabin can be tailored to the customer’s likes.

Imagine you own a glorious Aston Martin DB9 model, but over the last five years, you’ve grown a bit bored of the British sportscar. Why not buy a DBS, for example, and satisfy your desire for a shiny new car?

Neah, that’s too simple, at least according to a Russian customer. Instead, he went to tuning company Edo Competition and asked it to convert his five year old DB9 into a DBS model.

After a bit of a shock, the crew went to work and replaced all of the body panels from the DB9 with the carbon fiber parts used on the S model. The interior was also upgraded, with a mix of leather and Alcantara now present in the Aston.

In terms of performance, the Edo Competition team also tweaked the 5.9-liter V12 engine, which now develops 550 HP, even more than the DBS’ stock 510 HP. The brakes were also upgraded, as was the suspension system.

The price for the conversion wasn’t revealed, but you can pretty much guess that it came quite close to the price of a completely new DBS.

The Aston Martin DBS is arguably one of the most attractive models on the road. But the guys at Edo Competition believed that its power output and styling could use a few more tweaks.

As such, they went to work, fitting an optimized ECU, a brand new performance exhaust system, new catalytic converters and high flow air filters. This translates in a power output of 542 HP and a torque rating of 442 lb-ft (600 Nm). The tuned Aston Martin DBS now sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds, and will reach a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).

In terms of handling, Edo Competition fitted a performance braking system, 21-inch wheels and an adjustable sports suspension, which allows complete control over the ride height and other options. For the inside, customers can order things like carbon fiber trim or various other leather options.

Owning a Lamborghini is clearly considered an exclusive thing, but if you still can’t bear the thought of anyone else on the street having the same type of car as you, then tuning is a definite option.

For those who still want more power from the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, the tuners at Edo Competition have devised a new performance package, which takes the power to an impressive 600 HP, thanks to a revamped ECU and a new stainless steel exhaust system which saw butterfly valves fitted, so that you can adjust the sound of the engine using a remote control.

The new power output propels the Gallardo from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, and up to a whopping 340 km/h (211 mph). A new suspension system was also added, complete with low-friction shock absorbers and spring rates, as well as a set of 19-inch three-piece racing wheels and, last but not least, a front spoiler lip.

The Ferrari Enzo is a stunning hypercar as it quintessentially represents what Enzo Ferrari wanted from his company, fast lightweight cars which could bring a smile to your face. But don’t go thinking that it can’t be improved, as the tuning team from EDO Competition has just revealed the XX Evolution edition of the Ferrari Enzo.

I know you’re thinking, but what could they improve on one of the best Ferraris in history right? Well the team largely rebuilt the engine from scratch, keeping only a lightweight version of the housing, and swapped all of the standard pieces for even higher performance ones. This means that from a 6 liter V12 which could produce 660 HP, the Enzo XX Evolution has a 6.3 liter V12 engine, which can deliver a massive 840 HP (860 even, if you want to remove the final piece of the exhaust) with a torque of 780 Nm.

Factor in the fact that the hypercar is lighter by 100 kilos, and this means that it will do 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, reaching 200 in 9 seconds and 300 in 19 seconds. It will go up to 390 km/h (242 mph) if you have a long enough segment of road.

The team at EDO also tinkered with the transmission, which is now capable of shifting in just 60 milliseconds, as opposed to the stock one which managed the same feat in 110 milliseconds. To put that into perspective, a Formula 1 car’s transmission can shift in just 40 milliseconds. Also, for the suspension, the team outfitted the new Enzo XX Evolution with a special FIA GT one, which offers enhanced performance, but, in order to make it possible to drive the car on normal roads, they also fitted a hydraulic system to raise the nose of this true “monster”.

Enjoy the pics, as this is something you most definitely won’t see everyday. Props to the team at EDO but also to Ferrari for this great car.

The impressive Ferrari FXX was built by the Italian carmaker for track-use only, but it looks like the German tuner Edo Competition thought about all those people wanting to be able to drive the car on any street and came up with a program for the car, program which they claim makes the FXX comply to every German law. The program includes new windshield, hand brake, new suspension plus a new exhaust system that allows the supercar to meet all emissions standards. No mention on the price, but we suspect it’s not going to be pretty.

German tuner Edo Competition has announced a new tuning program for the Porsche Cayenne GTS, which offers more power and an improved aerodynamics kit for the German SUV. By fitting the car with new high-flow catalytic converters, performance air filter inserts and new ECU calibration, Edo managed to take the engine up to 450 hp (331 kW) and a maximum torque of 530 Nm (391 ft-lb) at 3,800 rpm. This means the Cayenne GTS goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.4 seconds an up to a top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph).

Other mechanical upgrades include a new brake system with huge six-piston fixed mono-block calipers, new sport suspension system adjustable in height, compression and rebound damping (14 settings). The bodu kit includes a new hood featuring power domes and a new lower front skirt with 4 fog lights and mesh inserts, plus 22 inch forged wheels with stainless steel outer rims (can also be ordered custom painted).

Last time German tuner Edo Competition messed up with the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, they managed to squeeze 23 hp more from the engine and, with a total of 663 hp, the car clocked 345.7 km/h (214.8 mph) on the test track in Nardo, Italy, which is the highest speed a Lamborghini ever reached. Despite all that, the guys over at Edo weren’t satisifed and decided to give it another upgrade. This time, they managed to increase the power output by 47 hp more, which means that the LP640 by Edo develops an impressive 710 hp and 700 Nm (516 ft-lb).

Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is done in 3.2 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under seconds and the estimated top speed is 360 km/h (224 mph). The extra performance was possible through new exhaust headers, new high flow catalytic converters, new mufflers, a new exhaust tip, new performance camshafts, modified cylinder heads and new high flow air filters plus reprogrammed engine controls, plus.

I remember seeing an episode of Top Gear where Jeremy Clarkson was saying that the Audi R8 is an extraordinary car, except for the fact that it’s very quiet comparing to what you’d expect from a supercar like this. Well, guess that Edo Competition took care of that “problem”, because here’s a video of the sound made by an Audi R8 fitted with a new Edo Competition exhaust system. Will turn some heads on the street for sure. Enjoy!

You’d expect Ferrari’s fastest car ever produced, which packs 620 hp, would be an almost perfect car. However, Edo Competition doesn’t agree with that and shows that there’s always place for better, so they came up with two modified versions of the 599 GTB Fiorano. The first one uses Ferrari’s 6.0 liter V12 engine, which now boosts 650 hp, the extra power coming from a recalibrated ECU, modified intake system, performance exhaust and high-flow catalytic converters. The second version, called 630 GTB Fiorano is based on the 6.3 liter engine from the Ferrari FXX and boosts an impressive 750 hp.

Other changes include a whole new suspension (developed with KW, on the race track), new high-flow exhaust system with electronic butterfly valve control, plus a cool feature, you get a remote control for adjusting the sound intensity. The car is lowered by 20 mm in the front and 40 mm at the back and got 20 inch wheels, available in custom colors. View more photos after the jump.
