 Vorsteiner Porsche Cayenne V-CT Kit

Our tuning series for today will be discussing about the V-CT kit for Porsche Cayenne courtesy of Vorsteiner. If we put the Cayenne in an analogical form of a child, what do you think? We think that the Cayenne is one spoiled kid; it’s like Paris Hilton with her white Lexus LFA, her poor pink Bentley, and of course, her itsy bitsy Chihuahua doggie.

As for the Porsche Cayenne, the luxury crossover has been achieving new aftermarket gifts from all tuning houses in the world and somehow, manages to show the – endless – other side of Cayenne. So, who is guilty to bring another aftermarket kit for Porsche Cayenne?

It will be Vorsteiner, ladies and gents. The tuning house has just presented new customization package for the current generation of Porsche 958 Cayenne dubbed as “V-CT” kit. Unfortunately, the tuning package only targets the cosmetic department which means that the engine will stay the same.

Now, the V-CT kit for Porsche Cayenne from Vorsteiner is in the form of an aerodynamic package that includes the V-CT designation such as side-skirts, a rear bumper with a diffuser, front fascia, and of course – the roof spoiler.

Moving on, Vorsteiner also offers other technical stuffs for the Cayenne luxury crossover in form of a set of custom rims with multi-spoke design and titanium exhaust system which both are contributed for saving some weights off. For your information, the exhaust system is available only for the Porsche Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo. The V-CT kit will be ready for sale at the end of this year.

First Look on 2011 BMW 5-Series

2011 BMW 5-Series

2011 BMW 5-Series is back to being one stern and handsome German, meant to take on other sternly other German cars such as Audi A6 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. If we look back, when the 2010 BMW 5-Series F10 sedan comes to North America in June 2010, the first two setups will be the gas-slaking marquee cars, the 2011 BMW 325i has 302 horsepower turbocharged direct-injected 3.0-liter V6 with intake-side Valvetronic, and the 2011 BMW 550i has recently developed 402 horsepower with twin-turbo with direct-injected 4.4-liter V8.

The 2011 BMW 5-Series has ZF-built eight-speed as its standard equipment and it comes attached to the twin-turbo V8 which replaces the last-generation of the 362 horsepower 4.8-liter naturally aspirated unit, and following the 8.6 percent price hike promised in Germany. So, we predict the price tag for the 2011 BMW 5-Series is $65,600 – more or less.

If we compare the previous 5-Series with the current 550i of 2011 BMW 5-Series which has 4.8-liter V8 and new twin turbo 4.4-liter, the horsepower is up by 11 percent while fuel use drops by 5 percent. The acceleration from 0 to 60 mph for the 550i of 2011 BMW 5-Series is pretty much as it was before at just under 5 seconds, and top speed on all cars on North America is limited to 130 mph, extendable up to 150 mph with the 2011 BMW 5-Series Sport package.

2011 BMW 5-Series has hood, front fender, and door panels made from aluminum to save weight, the 550i weighs in at 4.035 pounds at the curb with no passengers. The visual tricks of the 2011 BMW 5-Series make it seem more imposing – bigger, wider triple intakes at the chin, liberal  use of the horizontal lines front and back, stretched lighting units – match well with the slightly lower height, wider track with pronounced haunches, and greater overall width. Despite all the features, the 2011 BMW 5-Series has made Vorsteiner to made tuning kit for it, click here to read our coverage.
