Finally someone has succeded at making the California look good...so what, if it just involved painting it black, under the hood modifications aside.
The name 'California' itself is so unexotic.

The california is looks much better with the top up.With the top down it looks a mite ungainly.Its a wonderful understated modification,wish some other tuning houses could out with such understated designs.

Default EDO Competition Gallardo LP 600-4!

Edo competition is all about giving high-end supercars more power. Their latest project is called Gallardo LP600/4. Edo engineers have managed to improve the performance by increasing power output to 600 horsepower at 7,970 rpm and the torque output to 572 Nm (422 ft-lb) at 6,845 rpm.
0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) comes now in just 3.5 seconds, while the top speed is 340 km/h (211 mph). To improve drivability, Edo also upgraded the suspension by adding new shock absorbers and new spring rates.
The LP600/4 rides on 19-inch three-piece racing wheels that wear Dunlop Maxx tires. One impressive feature is the new stainless steel high-performance exhaust system with which comes with a sound-controller of sorts that can be adjusted from inside the cockpit! There are no fancy spoilers except for the front spoiler lip, which is purely for aerodynamic reasons and not visual.

Canonball,

I must point out that the 997 Turbo's side running board/skirt area is black in stock form! And Porsche will paint it for you as an optional extra! And it's not cheap!

Body Kits on the 911 from brands like TechArt seem to be too loud and make the car look ungainly and weird! Very few modifications look good on the 911. And this is one of them!

Quote:
German tuner Prior-Design has unveiled a new tuning package for the Porsche 911 GT3. Dubbed Porsche 911 DB3, it is all about visual upgrades except a new custom built exhaust.
Package starts off with a new front with carbon spoiler blade and carbon inlets which provide more downforce. Other changes include new side sills and on the back a new diffuser with integrated carbon fins.
The end of the muffler is completely enclosed, which additionally optimises the aerodynamic attributes. Air inlets which are positioned on the left and the right, are additionally strengthened with two carbon inlets. The GT3 wing remains a stock one.
New hand-made stainless steel exhaust system offers the driver a virtuoso driving experience over the full rev range, all the way up to 8,400 revs/min.
The DB3 also gets an adapted chassis that lowers the body by some 30 millimeters.

I liked the Stingray and mansory versions of the panamera, especially the stingray, made it look more porsche-esque. I also absolutely love the california and the porsche (Right above) featured here...

But that LP 560 just takes the cake. Nothing major done to it, but hell being "stock" it still kills all the other cars over the last 2 pages!

Prior Design? Could someone explain the nomenclature, because the name sounds dumb at first!

This Všth SLK 55 produces 565 hp of power and 568 lb-ft of torque!! That's a gains of 210 and 192, respectively over the stock version! Holy moly.

Všth V58 turns up the wick on Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG to the tune of 565 HP — Autoblog

The EDO Lambo Gallardo looks really hot and wicked.
Awesome looking 911 and the SLK too.

Jaya,

It's probably the tuning house's founder's surname. Prior is a common surname in the UK.
