Thanked: Once

Agreed that a lot of moolah and man hours have been spent on the red SLR but its totally useless IMO. Should be the weird and whacky thread.

Red one's absolutely distasteful. However, on an analogous note, I happened to read about the SLR 722 GT which look sabsolutely ferocious, completely stripped down of all fat inside, like stereo etc. It really looks evil. Out and out track machine, and the writer quite appropriately said that it looks "as comforting as a broken bottle thrown at your face"!!

I googled this one. Personally i love this F430!
The standard [COLOR=yellow]Ferrari[/COLOR] F430 is one of the world's most desirable supercars with an abundance of performance and exotic looks to match.

However, it appears an exclusive parts company for Ferrari - Novitec Rosso - wanted even more performance from the Fezza and this is where the Novitec Ferrari F430 Bi-Compressor Evoluzione comes in.
The new "Evoluzione" models packs an additional 15kW (20 hp) over the “stock” Novitec Ferrari F430 Bi-Compressor’s 468kW (636 hp) by revising the compressor and updating the engine management system.

The Novitec Ferrari F430 Bi-Compressor Evoluzione sprints from rest to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds (faster than you can say Novitec Ferrari F430 Bi-Compressor Evoluzione, I bet!).
Capacity: 4.308 ccm;
Achievement KW/PS: 482/656 with 8.200 rpm
Torque: 662NM with 6.100 rpm
Acceleration 0-100 km/h: 3.7 seconds.
Maximum speed: 348 km/h (in the case of changed transmission translation)


NOVITEC Bi-compressor with two Rotrex compressors with separate oil circulation, water-cooled intercoolers, additional injection, changed ECU´s, achievement-optimized high-grade steel exhaust system with 90mm final pipes, changed transmission translation

NOVITEC Brembo brake assembly with 380mm metal brake disks in front and in the back, 6-Kolben-Bremszangen at the front axle and rear axle


KW high-grade steel - thread chassis sport (two-way adjustable), sport stabilizers,
Complete wheel set NF2 Race, front axle 9,0 x 19 tariff with 255/30R19
Pirelli P-Zero Rosso, rear axle 12,5 x 20 tariff with 345/25R20 with Pirelli P-Zero Rosso

The Novitec F430 looks super hot. Elegant and sporty. One could drive this car to work and to the racetrack.

Wonder why the hummer wants to be a Ford GT 40 with that paint job. And the gold SLR, what a load of crap. Absolutely tasteless and pukeworthy.

Default 2009 Hamann Volcano

SLR McLaren 722-Besting HAMANN Volcano Performance

Supercars costing many hundreds of thousands of dollars like the SLR McLaren 722 are engineered to be as fast and drivable as possible. The fact that an aftermarket tuner was able to take the chassis and best the performance of the most hallowed of Mercedes-Benz sports cars, the SLR McLaren 722, and tack on even more performance potential is quite an accomplishment.

The HAMANN Volcano is rated at a top speed of 338 km/h, or 216 mph, a full 11 km/h faster than the 722 Edition hard top SLR. Rated at a cool 700 horsepower, the HAMANN Volcano gets the spec boost from a retuned powertrain including "newly programmed control unit, especially developed high performance exhaust manifolds and an amended belt pulley combination for the serial compressors."

800 HP Ferrari Enzo XX By Edo Competition
The Ferrari Enzo is already a very exclusive and beautiful supercar. However with a little more help it can become something even more powerful and impressive. The tuners from Edo Competition have just come up with a new kit, inspired by the factory backed one make racing program, called XX.

Edo Competition’s performance package consists of a modified 6.3 Liter V12 built with new steel cylinder liners, titanium connecting rods, forged high compression pistons, titanium valve springs to deal with that extra lift from a set of more aggressive bump sticks and an improved oil squirter setup consisting of higher flowing pipes. The screaming V12 that once made 650 HP has now been tuned to to develop a maximum output of 800 HP at an astounding 8,500 RPM and 575 lb-ft of torque at a rather high 5,800 RPM.

This much added power in the Edo tuned Enzo XX means that the 60 MPH marker will come up in only 3.2 seconds from a standstill and push the wedged shaped Italian super car to a top speed of 236 MPH.

Project Kahn SLR Carbon Based On The McLaren Super Car
The aftermarket manufacturer Project Kahn is no stranger to getting the most out of big money exotic vehicles. More recently the tuning firm has revealed a new customization kit for the most exclusive Daimler super car built to date, the Mercedes McLaren SLR. This modified Mercedes is called the SLR Carbon, and as the name suggests features a healthy diet of the lightweight wavy black stuff. Even the F1-X Carbon wheels, built for performance, are made up of a carbon fiber rim and a lightweight magnesium face. The result is an extremely attractive rim that tips the scales at around 25 pounds, allowing for the ultimate reduction of unsprung mass.

The English based design studio is also offering a few accessories to go along with your customized exotic import. Like a lightweight golfing umbrella complete with carbon fiber shaft and Kahn keyring, as well as a glossy piano black steering wheel or one finished in carbon fiber. If you want a little more go to accompany all that show, the tuners can squeeze an extra 60 HP out of the supercharged V8.

Hennessey HPE550 2SS Camaro, First In The 11’S
The American high performance tuning house Hennessey Performance Engineering has launched a new power package that puts a boost under the hood of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. The modified pony car is called the HPE550 2SS Camaro, and is the first automobile to feature the tuner’s latest edition chrome Magnuson supercharger.

The HPE550 2SS Camaro features a set high-flow fuel injectors to deliver enough go juice into the combustion chamber to match the additional pressurized air being pumped in by the special edition supercharger, a stainless steel cat-back exhaust to allow as much air as possible to pass through the system and an HPE cold air intake to make sure that enough fresh air is making its way into the LS3. None of these products would work nearly as well as a unit if it weren’t for the HPE dyno tune that comes complete with every HPE550 purchase. Last but not least the 2SS package comes complete with a set of 20 inch wheels that resemble the ZR-1 and a pair of modified valve covers compliment the chrome blower nicely and dress up the engine bay as well.

The HPE550 has also become the world’s quickest 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, completing the standing quarter mile in just 11.76 seconds at 121.2 MPH, although it was wearing a set of drag radials.
