Default Professionally Modified Supercars

I thought a thread like this would make more sense than having a separate thread for every modified supercar that comes out, especially now that we have so many of them.

To start things off, here's a Geiger-modified Corvette Z06. The Corvette Z06's 500bhp 7.0-litre V8 has been modified into a 7.6 litre engine with two turbochargers! It now churns out 890 BHP and 694lb ft (940 nm) of torque! Top speed is now 354 KMPH

Handling has been improved too (as it should with all that power). The car's now got a twin-disc clutch, adjustable coilover springs, bigger brakes and a carbon fibre driveshaft. Not to mention the huge OZ wheels and the body kit etc.

P.S.: Does anyone else think Geiger lifted the green from a Lamborghini?

Default Another UGLY Cayenne

Seemingly in competition to the ugly ugly ugly Gemballa Cayenne, Romanian tuners MAFF have tuned a Cayenne engine to produce over 700 BHP from its 4.8 litre turbocharged V8. And need I mention, it's UGLY!

It's called the MAFF Muron btw..

P.S.: I know it looks like it, but trust me, it's not a PS job

Default M6 Hurricane CS

The fastest BMW coupe in the world is here. German tuning house G-Power took the M6's 5.0-litre V10 and added a couple of superchargers, to get a massive 750bhp and 590lb ft (800 nm) of torque!!! Top speed of just 370 KMPH (which is a record, btw), with its first 100 coming in 4.4 seconds. The superchargers have not been utilised to their full capacity; if they were, they would help produce around 900 BHP

To cope with the power, the Hurricane gets a body kit, a high performance carbon-ceramic break system, adjustable suspension and massive 21-inch Silverstone Diamond wheels with 255/30 zr 21 and 295/25 zr 21 tires...
The bodykit is made entirely from carbon-fibre, of course.

Starting price is around 360,000 Euros

Hey, nice first post. The Viper, oh man I just saw a Dodge Viper SRT10 for the first time ever in my life, just a few minutes back here in Washington DC. Low, ANGRY and black with chrome wheels. Mistook it for a Corvette at first, then saw it from a little closer and was like *&@^$*@%*$ !!!

Default The Ferrari F430 Calavera

Modifying Ferrari's has always been Novitec's forte. So it was no surprise when they took the F430 and modified it.....quite a few times. This particular model is one that they did in collaboration with Unique Sportscars.

It's called the Calavera and it shares the same twin-supercharged version as the F430 Race, a 4.3 litre engine that produces 707 BHP. and 712 nm of torque. The superchargers help it reach a top speed of 348 KMPH and a 0-100 time of 3.5 seconds.

To improve handling, Novitec has thrown in 20 inch wheels, a front spoiler, a rear wing and a lowered sports suspension pack. The interior also gets luxurious with embroidered seats and iPod connectivity.

The car also gets LED lights on the front splitter, that add to the look. The tattoo-style exterior has been designed by airbrush artist Knud Tiroch. There are only going to be 11 of these ever made.

P.S.: Looks like something out of a video game, doesn't it?

F430 looks like a modded Japanese import.With all that skull graphics and mad interior trim!! Painjob is brilliant but doesn't suit a Ferrari.Still something refreshingly different!!

Nice thread!!

Yes, it appears to be a PS job. However, the CLR does exist and is in production. There was one here in London last summer from the UAE. It sounds unbelievable.
