Skoda Octavia 2 RS By Milotec

I’ve always been a big fan of the Skoda Octavia RS and it’s nice to see that from time to time tuners do their work on this model. Milotec has developed a tuning package and styling kit for the hatchback version of the model which looks great.

They have installed a new front grille and matching headlamp covers, an updated front bumper that has a lid spoiler, a rear apron, carbon wrap for the roof, diffuser and a new boot spoiler. As you can see, the Octavia 2 RS by Milotec rides on a new set of 19-inch alloys that have the same color as the body of the vehicle. These rims are wrapped around in 225/35 R19 Hankook S1 Evo tires. They’ve also fitted the fast hatchback with an H&R sporty suspension kit that brings the car closer to the ground.

Inside the cabin, the Skoda Octavia 2 RS by Milotec gets a custom aluminum trim for the door panels and the dashboard, aluminum pedals and footrest, and bespoke door sills.

The new sports exhaust system can be installed on both gasoline and diesel versions of the Octavia RS which increases the output by 5%. The tuner has developed a new ECU for the model powered by the 2.0-liter TDI engine which increases the output to 200 hp.

VW Touareg By JE Design

The German tuners from JE Design have developed a brand new bodykit for the VW Touareg lineup, including the R-line models. This bodykit consists of a new front spoiler, grille, front & rear widening wheel arches, a tailgate panel and a rear apron insert. The Touareg now rides on a new set of SUV-Select 22-inch alloys wrapped around in high-performance tires that measure 295/30R22 on all four corners. In addition, they’ve installed a wheel spacer kit (30 mm front / 40 mm rear).

Aside from the bodykit and the wheels, JE Design has a power boost for the Touareg. The 4.2-liter TDI gets an ECU remap so the horsepower figure goes up from the standard 335 hp (340 PS / 250 kW) and 590 lb.-ft (800 Nm) to 404 hp (410 PS / 302 kW) and 686 lb.-ft (930 Nm) of torque. With this upgrade, the Touareg is capable of doing the 0-62 mph sprint in 5.4 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds quicker than the standard version of the car. It can hit a top speed of 167 mph (269 km/h) which is considerably higher than the 150 mph (242 km/h) of the standard car.

The German SUV is also brought closer to the ground by 35mm thanks to the new suspension-lowering module. Other than that, it packs a dual exhaust system that has stainless steel oval pipes, while inside the cabin they’ve used Alcantara for the roof liner, door panels and the dashboard.

Tuningwerk BMW 7 Series

The Munich-based tuners from Tuningwrek have released their upgrade program for the BMW 7-Series F02 Long Version. After the improvements they’ve made, the engine of the car outputs 720 hp while the maximum torque is 1,090 Nm, enough for a 0-62 mph sprint in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h.

Tuningwerk BMW 7 Series

The engine can be linked to either a 5- or 6-speed automatic gearbox and the car has been equipped with a carbon ceramic brake system that has 396mm ceramic brake disks for the front axle while the disks in the back axle are a little bit smaller. After installing the new braking system, they’ve managed to lower the weight of the car by approximately 70 kg. An additional 50 kg were shaved off by implementing a lightweight sports exhaust system along with carbon front and side body sills.

Tuningwerk BMW 7 Series

The full power upgrade will set you back 198,000 Euros but there is a smaller upgrade that lifts the power of the engine to “only” 530 hp and 740 Nm. This one costs 168,900 Euros and it allows the 7-Series to reach 62 mph from start in 4.2 seconds, en route to a maximum speed of 310 km/h.

Hyundai Genesis Coupe Hurricane SC

The 2011 edition of the SEMA aftermarket show will be organized in Las Vegas next month, where the South Korean car manufacture r Hyundai will bring at least three models. Two of them are based on the recently introduced Veloster model while the third one will be this Genesis Coupe Hurricane SC.

The vehicle was developed by Hyundai America Technical Center Inc. in partnership with Magnuson Products, Harman International, Rhys Millen Racing and Torvec Inc. HATCI mentioned that they have started working on this heavily modified Genesis Coupe back in 2009 and the engineers have taken care of all the aspects of the vehicle, including chassis, power unit and styling.

The car will have the same V6 3.8-liter engine as the one available in the standard Genesis Coupe, but they’ll install a supercharger with a liquid to air intercooler that was developed by HATCI and Magnuson that raises the output of the engine to 450+ hp. Aside from this upgrade, the car will be fitted with a free flowing exhaust system and air intake, IsoTorque differential, 19-inch Enkei alloys with Hankook tires, as well as  a Brembo 6-piston brake kit with cross drilled front + rear rotor brakes.

The guys from Rhys Millen Racing will be in charge with the styling of the Genesis Coupe Hurricane SC and the car will come with a modified Harman International high level Lexicon audio system that will rock the SEMA show.

Audi RS3 by MTM

If you’re one of those people who thinks that 335 hp (340 PS / 250 kW) and 332 lb.-ft (450 Nm) of torque is not enough for the standard Audi RS3, then you should have a look at MTM’s tuning program which raises the output of the engine to 466 hp (472 PS / 347 kW) and 442 lb.-ft (600 Nm).

Audi RS3 by MTM

How they managed to do this? Well, they’ve fitted the power unit with a modified turbocharger as well as a brand new sport exhaust system. More power demands for beefier brakes and the tuner from MTM did just that.

Audi RS3 by MTM

This Audi RS3 tuned by Motoren Technik Mayer (MTM) is able to do the 0-62 mph sprint in only 4.1 seconds, which is 0.5 faster than the standard version, while the top speed is 181 mph (292 km/h). The German tuner also throws in a set of 19-inch bimoto rims.

Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale by Novitec Tridente

The engineers from Novitec Tridente have developed a new tuning program for the very hot Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale. Design-wise, the coupe now comes with a ventilated bonnet, a sport exhaust system, a reduced ride height and it rides on 21- / 22-inch alloys that are wrapped around in Pirelli P Zero tires.

The most interesting modifications have been brought under that new hood where the V8 4.7-liter now has a supercharger, bigger fuel injectors, a new intake manifold and an updated engine mapping. Thanks to the implementation of these updates, the power unit now produces 637 hp (646 PS / 475 kW) and a peak torque of 460 lb.-ft (624 Nm). This is enough for a 0-62 mph sprint time in only 3.9 seconds, a 0-200 km/h in 11.4 seconds, and a maximum speed of 190 mph (306 km/h).

Carlsson CK63 RS

One of the cars brought to this year’s edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show that we almost forgot to talk about is the Carlsson CK63 RS, based on the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG. Fitted with the Performance Package, the regular CLS 63 AMG is able to do the 0-62 mph sprint in 4.3 seconds, but the engineers from Carlsson have managed to shave 0.2 seconds of that time by increasing the output of the engine.

Carlsson CK63 RS

In its standard configuration, the power unit produces 550 hp (557 PS / 410 kW) but Carlsson managed to increase the output to 642 hp (649 PS / 477 kW) and a peak torque of 590 lb.-ft (800 Nm), which is enough for a 0-62 mph sprint time in 4.1 seconds.

Carlsson CK63 RS

Other than that, they’ve fitted onto the CLS 63 AMG a carbon fiber aerodynamic kit that comes with a front spoiler, a new RS front spoiler lip, rear boot-lid spoiler, black-colored stainless steel grille inserts, RS rear diffuser and a rear skirt insert.

Carlsson CK63 RS

They didn’t stop there as the car also got a new stainless steel sport exhaust system that features four oval pipes, an adjustable suspension kit that can bring the sexy 4-door coupe closer to the ground by up to 30 mm, along with a bunch of 20-inch alloys.

G-Power M3 Tornado RS

The German tuners from G-Power have developed a new upgrade program for the BMW M3 and this one is probably the best they’ve ever made.

G-Power M3 Tornado RS

With so much power under the hood, it’s no wonder that the M3 needs only 3.7 seconds in order to hit 62 mph from start, while 0-124 mph is done in 9.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 205.5 mph (330 km/h).

Citroen DS3 Racing By Superchips

The British tuners from Superchips have decided to roll out an upgrade program for the Citroen DS3 Racing. They’ve done it by remapping the ECU of the car and if you’re one of the lucky 1,000 clients that got a DS3 Racing, this power boost will set you back 455 pounds (including VAT).

In the United Kingdom, the fastest version of the DS3 comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged twin-scroll gasoline engine that offers 204 hp and a peak torque of 202 lb.-ft (275 Nm). After Superchips optimizes the ECU, the engine can offer an additional 26 hp and 43 Nm, for a grand total of 230 hp and 234 lb.-ft (318 Nm).

According to the tuner, the Citroen DS3 Racing feels “livelier” although they haven’t finished testing the upgraded version of the hot hatch. They said that the new version will “eclipse” the 6.5 seconds needed for the regular version to do the 0-62 mph sprint. In addition, the top speed should be over the standard 149 mph.

Myvi Wolfrace Design Concept

Perodua (ERusahaan Otomobil KeDUA Sendirian Berhad) is the second largest car maker in Malaysia after Proton, and they’ve teamed up with Wolfrace, a tuning company from the United Kingdom, to create this Myvi Wolfrace Design Concept that will spawn into a limited production model.

If you didn’t know, the second generation of the supermini Myvi is based on the Dahiatsu Boon/Sirion and the Toyota Passo. This concept brings a couple of styling changes, including 16-inch alloys that have low-profile Falken tires, contrasting red tailgate mirrors and spoiler, new graphics on the body, a twin chrome exhaust and tinted windows. In addition, it benefits from a lowered suspension that features Eibach springs which should increase the handling of the car.

Inside the cabin, Wolfrace used a combination of Alcantara and leather for the seats, along with a Vibe audio upgrade that includes bass enclosure.

The Malaysian manufacturer has announced that the car will go on sale in the United Kingdom at the beginning of next month. No word about the price tag yet.
