Ariel Atom Turns 3, Gets a New Home

Aug 14, 2008No Comments1089 Views

One of my favorite vehicles on the road today, the Ariel Atom, is getting freshened up with a few mechanical changes and more interior room. The third-generation Atom gets an upgraded chassis with diagonal side rails to allow 3.9 inches of elbow room and an additional 2.4 inches of hip room inside the cockpit. The Ariel Atom 3 suspension will now receive optional 10-way adjustable Bilstein shocks while non-adjustable Bilsteins as standard. The Atom 3 also has a slightly lowered seating position which should lower the center of gravity and make the overall ride quality a little better. The Honda

If you’ve been waiting for Nissan’s GT-R V-Spec, you’ll have to keep waiting.  Nissan has just delayed the launch of the lightweight GT-R V-Spec until early 2009.  However, Nissan is getting ready to launch their NISMO performance parts catalog for the GT-R on august 20th.  We can expect many of the popular tuner companies, such as Stillen and GReddy, to produce performance products for the GT-R as well.  However, there is a new company stepping into the ring – GT-RR.com, GT-RR.com is a distributor of “high-end boutique” performance parts for the Nissan GT-R.  On its Web site, you will find

BMW X6 Styling and Performance Package by AC Schnitzer

Jul 28, 2008No Comments1200 Views

German BMW tuner, AC Schnitzer, has just announced their styling and performance package for the BMW X6.  Schintzer’s first order of business was to address the aerodynamics and bodywork of BMW’s first Sports Activity Coupe. In the X6 by AC Schnitzer the front skirt with its diagonal air intakes and repositioned fog lights are exposed. The skid-plate protection has been removed in favor of a more dynamic contour of the spoiler edge. The rear carries a massive skirt with framed edges. In contrast to the original, all components are painted body-color throughout, so the body appears down stretched and more dominant.

Jul 24, 2008No Comments1553 Views

Ok, so you just dropped $230,000 on a new Ferrari Scuderia only to get it home and realize it only has 510 hp.  Heck, Ford’s Shelby GT500 will put out more than that with nothing more than a K&N air filter swap.  Well, help is on the way from Novitec Rosso, a leading Ferrari Tuner. Novitec introduces a sophisticated tuning program for the new Ferrari 430 Scuderia. At its heart is the Novitec Rosso Supersport Bi-Kompressor engine that bumps power output from stock 510 hp to 717 hp and increases top speed from 199 MPH to 217 MPH. Peak torque improves
