BMW E46 3 Series by Prior Design

Kamp-Lintfort stylinghouse Prior Design has developed a new body program for the outmoded E46 BMW 3 Series range.

Manufactured from high quality Dura-Flex FRP (Fibre Reinforced Plastic), the aero package replicates BMW’s current M3 model and includes a front bumper with, side skirts and a rear bumper with double exhaust apertures.


Liberty Walk Lamborghini Murcielago

Here’s a new project created by Houston’s EVS Motors for a customer wanting to freshen up his early Lamborghini Murcielago.

Starting with the bodywork, the T-02 aero package by Liberty Walk LB Performance in Japan includes a replacement front bumper, side skirts, a rear bumper with large diffuser and a raised rear wing, which provides the appearance of the LP670-4 SuperVeloce.

Fitting and painting was carried out by EVS Motors’ affiliate partner Royal Collision, while the rolling stock comes courtesy of ADV.1 Wheels. A set of gloss black ADV5.0 Deep Concave items were deemed the perfect solution in staggered 19 and 20-inch diameters.


Porsche 991 exhaust by Shark Werks

Californian tuning specialist Shark Werks has just released this video of its brand new exhaust option for the Porsche 991. Constructed from T304L stainless steel, the unit replaces the factory centre section and provides a power increase of around 7 kW (10 hp) while shaving around 3.5 kg from the rear of the car.


Audi R8 by Rennen Forged

Many thanks to the guys at styling specialist Rennen Forged for sharing these images of its latest project car. Taking the unusual step of fitting 21-inch diameter items, the company went for a set of R10 X Concave wheels in 9 and 11-inch widths featuring matte black faces and windows with high-gloss black lips. The Audi R8 Coupe also wears a V10-spec rear bumper, matte red bodywork and sits on lowered suspension.


Loud Aventador pulled over for a quiet word

Even though London isn’t enjoying its best summer weather, that doesn’t appear to stop the Saudi zillionaires from flying their hypercars over there to parade around Knightbridge for a few weeks. This particular owner was pulled over for a brief word regarding the aural pollution produced by his car’s tailpipes.

The vehicle in question is an Oakley Design Lamborghini Aventador LP760-2, which not only features remapped ECU software, but also that booming titanium exhaust system. All of the driver’s paperwork seemed to be in order, so he was allowed to go on his way – just after a pair of Lamborghini Roadsters fly past him.


Porsche 991 Carrera 4 revealed

Following on from the weekend’s leaked images, Porsche has revealed details of its new all-wheel drive 991 Carrera 4 range.

Beneath its skin, the innovative Porsche Traction Management ensures greater dynamics on all surfaces and in varying conditions, with the 257 kW (350 hp) 3.4-litre Carrera 4 hitting 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.7s) and reaching a 285 km/h (Cabriolet: 282 km/h) top speed. Weighing up to 65 kg less than its predecessor helps the Coupe to require 8.6 litres of fuel every 100 kilometres (Cabriolet: 8.7 l/100 km) when specified with the optional PDK gearbox rather than the standard seven-speed manual. Double-declutching occurs automatically during downshifts in Sport mode on manual cars fitted with the Sport Chrono pack.

The 294 kW (400 hp) 3.8-litre-engined Carrera 4S cracks 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.3s) and enjoys a 299 km/h (Cabriolet: 296 km/h) top speed, with a fuel consumption figure of 9.1 l/100 km for the Coupé (Cabriolet: 9.2 l/100 km).

Visual changes are relatively subtle, including swollen rear wheel arches adding 44 mm to the car’s width, 10 mm wider tyres and that tell-tale light strip spanning the rear.

Equipment of note includes the optional Adaptive Cruise Control ACC), which controls vehicle speed and distance to traffic ahead. When specified with PDK, Porsche Active Safe (PAS) works with the ACC, helping to avoid front-end collisions. There’s also a new sliding glass sunroof option.

Due to make their débuts at next month’s Paris Motor Show before going into production at the end of the year, prices in Germany are €97,557 for the Carrera 4 Coupe (Cabriolet: €110,290) and €112,313 for the Carrera 4S Coupe (Cabriolet: 125,046).
