Two exterior kits from Prior Design in one day? Yup… It seems like the tuning house is doing what they can to make your New Year’s Eve more thrilling as you check out the photos. It is like Prior Design has special thing with the German vehicles as they already played with BMW 1-Series Coupe and 5-Series – this has been customized twice, folks. This time, another German sedan has been voluntarily signs up for Prior Design latest project – the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG that looks like more than regular E-Class.
The exterior kit for E63 AMG by Prior Design comes with the name “PD500” body kit. Hmmm… the name itself already gives us the chill. According to autoevolution.com, this body kit is perfect fit for all W212 E-Class sedans. Especially those which are carrying the design and performance by AMG for the top of the class E-Class models.
Prior Design offers the tuning kit for Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG that consists of new front fascia, revised side skirts, freshly designed rear bumper, and of course a diffuser. The primary goal is to deceive your eyes. Seeing the E63 AMG with Prior Design exterior kit will definitely make you think “hot ride with V8 AMG engine under the hood”.
But the fact is, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG just an ordinary sedan and that is where the exterior body kit from Prior Design comes handy. So, do you think that looks can be deceiving? With the help from Prior Design, those who own ordinary sedan can reborn their sedan with menacing look.
One word to describe the Volkswagen Gold GTI Mk V: rubbish. Yup… we have to borrow Jeremy Clarkson’s favorite word whenever he drives a vehicle and completely not matching his assessment. So, do you know it means? It means that the only way to make the Golf GTI Mk V looks appealing is by turning it into tuning house – in this case, Schmidt Revolution. Check out what the German tuning house has done with the ordinary hatchback which has transformed into menacing black hot hatch.
According to autoevolution.com, the reason why Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk V is better in the form of custom vehicle is because it’s rounded GTI styling and the fact that the engine is considered to be one of the customizable powerplant. That is why, no wonder if this German hatchback usually have exterior, interior, as well as engine and performance tuning kit where the 2.0L TFSI pushes to the max.
Lucky for us, Schmidt Revolution.com offers the tuned Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk V not only with exterior look tuning, but also engine and performance as well. We are not going to talk the front bumper, side skirt, or even the rear bumper. What really catches our attention is the big red multi spoke rims which go contras with the shiny black paint job.
The engine of the Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk V has been tweaked with a STO-chip Tuning ECU, new air box and kind of center-mounted double exhaust. The total power output after Schmidt Revolution granted the German hatchback with these tuning parts is 275 horsepower.
Look what Prior Design has for your yearend present, exterior tuning kit for your BMW 5-Series. Yup… it is the second time Prior Design playing with the 5-Series and both are really fit for the luxury sedan. The tuning house translates the exterior tuning kit for this luxury sedan is dynamic appearance with the right amount of tuning item that is not too far.
According to autoevolution.com, the first time Prior Design introduced this exterior kit was back in April, but the tuning house decided to change some of the designs. Prior Design stated that the original photos mean a pack of tuning which inspired by BMW M3 for the styling. But for this exterior kit for BMW 5-Series, Prior Design brings the entirely new design.
The exterior tuning kit for 5-Series sedan by Prior Design consists of a front bumper, new side skirts, rear diffuser, and rear roof spoiler that made from carbon fiber. Check out the quadruple exhaust tailpipes at the back which seems to be ready for unleashing the sound of the menacing engine. Prior Design proudly refers the exhaust as a cat back exhaust system which totally make sense because cats have 4 legs, right? 5-Series doesn’t have 4 legs, but 4 wheels with a set of lightweight alloy rims in high-performance tires that ready for tearing up the asphalt.
Okay, we know you are confused with the title of our article here, so we suggest you to keep reading this post. The reason of the confusion is the Maybach, not the Bugatti Veyron. We all know that Maybach is the luxury division of Mercedes-Benz and the three-pointed German automaker decided to end the Maybach brand. So, why FAB Design tuning in the vehicle that no longer exist?
Actually, Mercedes stills continues the very last production of Maybach which means that the Swiss tuning house has its last chance to customize which soon to be rare vehicle. Fro the Bugatti Veyron, honestly, we haven’t got any tuning house or aftermarket specialist that has the courage to pimp out the supercar.
We got the sketches made by FAB Design from autoevolution.com and the tuning project will be using the Bugatti Veyron and the Xenatech Maybach 57S Coupe. If Xenatch sounds strange to you, that is because Xenatech is the company which altered the Maybach 57 into a coupe.
Before Mercedes stops the production of Maybach, there were 8 units and three of them still in the form of unfinished project. There is big possibility that FAB Design might be bought the remaining three unfinished Maybach and tuning them into fabulous vehicles. Can’t wait to see the real-life result from this sketch? Our aforementioned source predicted that the Bugatti Veyron and Maybach version of FAB Design will be ready at 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.
The BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe is ready for its official introductory although we got the two images of the saloon without any camouflage sheet on. Camouflage sheet on? Yeah… try to look at the rear view of the 6-Series Grand Coupe that read “WERKSTETWAGEN” in German which if we translate in English means “Work Test Vehicle”. A spyshot? Yup… it seems like it.
No more camouflage sheets, no more scanned images, or even teaser images, folks. What you see is the real-life version of BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe which we obtained from autoevolution.com as shared by BimmerToday. Kudos for you guys for eliminating some of our curiosities on this saloon. So, here is what makes us confuse: why still proposing the name of 6-Series Gran Coupe if the photos showed regular four-door German saloon?
If the Bavarian carmaker wants the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe to be two-door, then what we should see is saloon with two doors, not saloon with four doors. Anyway, the four-door saloon in silver has not impressed us that much because it is not even as good-looking as the old Mercedes CLS. Okay, we might be disappointed with the overall design, but we still have one more aspect that we really need to count it on – the engine and performance. Hopefully, the 6-Series Gran Coupe offers outstanding powerplant and drivetrain just like what coupe vehicle should be.
What you see is not the original model of Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate Black Series, but the rendering image. You can curse or praise it, but the credit for these photos goes for Theophilus Chin. We know that the three-pointed German automaker is currently working on the C63 AMG Estate Black Series, but we just not that patient to wait and thanks to Mr. Chin, we get the idea how the luxury MVP will look like.
Does the name Theopilus Chin sound familiar to you? That is because it is the person who brought the rendering image of BMW Gran Touring. The overall design is pretty much clear as the design language for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate Black Series is still translating as luxury MVP or soccer Mom’s car with hidden power under its bonnet. What Theopilus wants is a vehicle that really taking the advantage of lowers ground clearance.
Yup… the noticeable style from the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate Black Series is the lower ground clearance with wider stance. And to scare little children away, autoevolution.com mentioned that the rendering images of this luxury German MVP showed numbers of air intakes which are not too much for the boldness of the design.
Now, the rendering images are not only targeting the exterior, but also the engine and performance. The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate Black Series could be powered by naturally-aspirated 6.2L V8 that offers 517 ponies with peak torque of 620 Nm. Not like we destroy your imagination but the real-life C63 AMG Estate Black Series MVP is ready in summer 2012.
What will you do if you can drive Lamborghini Aventador even if for one day? If buying this Italian supercar is very impossible for you, perhaps renting it will sound reasonable for you although we would like to remind you that the renting fee is far from reasonable and acceptable. You see, if you have collections of supercar and you just hate to see them inside your garage, perhaps you can rent them. Just like what the Black and White Car Rental.
The aforementioned car rental is located in one of the most prestigious area in US – Beverly Hills where people driving expensive vehicles is common of daily sightseeing. As you can see on the photo which we obtained from autoevolution.com, the Black and White Car Rental is expanding their rental choices by offering the irresistible white Aventador with the cute red ribbon on top of it.
Now, the “far from reasonable rental pricing” of Lamborghini Aventador supercar is $5,500 per day or around $30,000 per week. That amount of renting price doesn’t mean you can go everywhere you want, the rental office puts 30 mile limitation and if you drive over that, you have to pay $5 for each extra mile. This supercar can be picked up from two locations: the LAX airport and Beverly Hills. Just to remind you that the US price tag for Aventador supercar is $375,000. Is it worth it if you rent it weekly? You do the math and tell us what you think.
Usually, teaser image is intended for the new model to test the first initial public reaction. But look what Vorsteiner is trying to do as they release two teaser images for their latest project under the name of 2012 Bentley Continental GT BR-10. Yup… after releasing the official pricing, Vorsteiner seems can’t wait any longer to apply custom look for the luxury saloon. So, since pictures are telling thousand words, let’ see what these teaser images have to tell us, shall we?
Vorsteiner takes the bold step to put the American custom style for the 2012 Continental GT BR-10. For those who are not familiar with Vorsteiner, what we are about to see is the custom project done by American tuning house. The reason why Vorsteiner targets the Bentley is because they already played with other German cars such as the BMW M3 GTS and Porsche Cayenne and now, it’s time to expand their creativity.
Just like other custom projects that Vorsteiner has done, the 2012 Bentley Continental GT BR-10 could be carrying carbon fiber body kit for the bumpers, skirts, and boot lid lip. Although we only got two teaser images on the custom luxury saloon, we just can’t our eyes of off the front where Vorsteiner ferociously flattened and gives an edge to the grille. This brings out the menacing look for the 2012 Continental GT BR-10 as the revised front spoiler looks like a protruding chin.
