Mode Carbon BMW M3 Coupe

Miami tuning specialist Mode Carbon has released details of its latest project car, based on the current BMW M3 Coupe.

Already equipped with the BMW competition package, ‘Snow White’ wears the company’s clear-coated carbon fibre GTS front spoiler and rear diffuser section, along with gloss black alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber and a replacement boot lid from Vorsteiner reminiscent of the E46 M3 CSL’s. Inside the cabin, Sonic MS provides a Performance Steering wheel with Verstrabe aluminium flappy paddles.

Performance upgrades see the 4.0-litre V8 powerplant receive a Dinan ECU software remap and RPi ram air induction scoops, while the factory suspension makes way for an adjustable coilover set-up from KW.


Prior Design Audi TT

Styling specialist Prior Design has developed a new body program to suit the current Audi TT Coupe and Roadster models.

Inspired by the R8, the aero package is constructed from high quality Duraflex and consists of a front fascia with lower spoiler, side skirts and a rear bumper with diffuser section. The kit comes with corner grille inserts and retains the factory radiator grille. Holes will need to be drilled for cars fitted with PDC.

Pricing is set at €1,237.


How all car showrooms should look

Some may claim that this is just a thinly-disguised excuse to show a hot girl cavorting around in her underwear, and those people would be absolutely correct in that assumption. This video, shot by Moscow film maker Alexander Tikhomirov, makes you wonder just how many extra cars SEAT would sell – if their salespeople were this easy on the eye. Have a happy Monday.


Kahn Design Supersport wide-track Porsche Cayenne

British styling specialist Kahn Design has released details of its Supersport wide-track program for the Porsche Cayenne.

The aero package includes a set of vented wheel arch extensions with integrated air dams and vertically-mounted LED daytime running lights, and a lower tailgate spoiler, while an electronic module lowers the Cayenne over its new Kahn RS alloy wheels, which measure 9.5 and 10 x 22-inches. The only performance upgrade is a full stainless steel exhaust system with quadruple tailpipes.

Moving inside, the cabin has been reupholstered with perforated and quilted leather in black and carbon with ivory stitching, charcoal floor mats, machined aluminium pedals and cream and red dial faces.

Kahn can provide completed vehicles, including this Pearl White example complete with 179 kW (240 hp) 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine, for €92,000.


Porsche 918 Spyder at Porsche Sound Night 2012

Motorsport fans at Porsche’s second Sound Night event at the company’s museum in Stuttgart were in for a real treat earlier this month, due to the exotica in attendance. Not only was there a prototype of the 918 Spyder providing a performance for the audience, but also machinery including a 1973 911 Carrera RSR, 1987 962 C Le Mans, 1977 935, 2008 RS Spyder and even a 1962 804 F1 car.

Audi R8 e-tron in Iron Man 3

If you believe every car news site on the planet, Audi is said to have pulled the plug on its record-breaking R8 e-tron model, claiming that it will never see mass production, with just a handful being built for internal use.

So, you can imagine our surprise to see this image of said car – along with a certain Robert Downey Jr – appearing on Audi of America’s official Instagram page, accompanied by the caption: ‘The world’s greatest Super Hero @Iron_Man & greatest supercar are back together & better than ever in 2013! #IronMan3’.

Looking back, the previous two movies have seen Tony Stark behind the wheel of an R8 Coupe and an R8 Spyder, so we don’t see why Audi would want to put such a vehicle as the R8 e-tron on a global pedestal – without making it available to the public.
