  • Inden Design Ferrari F430

    Improving on a Ferrari design is tough - some would say impossible. But it's still attempted often enough, this time by the tuners at Inden Design. Perhaps better known for their work with German cars - especially Mercedes-Benz - the tuners at Inden took a tried-and-true approach to tuning the Ferrari F430. Adding carbon fiber and leather wherever possible, fitting a more aggressive - if somewhat awkward up front - body kit, slapping on 20in wheels and cranking up the engine's electronics to 525hp from the stock 490hp rating, the Inden F430 is a straightforward attempt at sharpening an...

  • 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster
    Nissan prices 370Z Roadster from $36,970

    The 350Z Roadster caught a lot of flack for its awkward top-up proportions, and while the new 370Z Roadster has the top-down look nailed, the lack of official top-up shots has us worried it too will fall prey to poor design. Whatever the aesthetics, however, pricing is a known quantity, and it...

  • bugatti veyron grand sport napa valley 011

    Few cars carry as much prominence as the Bugatti Veyron, famous for its ultra-high price tag, striking looks and other-worldly speeds, but there will always be demanding customers wanting more. For them, Bugatti is offering an even more exclusive ‘roofless’ version labeled the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, which recently entered production at the company’s high-tech assembly facility in Molsheim, France. To mark the production start of the new model, which will be limited to 150 units, Bugatti hosted a special day for enlisted buyers to test drive some pre-production versions at...

  • Ariel Atom

    Hot on the heels of the news of the 500hp (373kW) Caterham Seven RS, rival British sports car manufacturer Ariel has revealed plans for its own V8-powered superlight roadster based on the existing Atom platform. The exposed tubular frame road-legal racer is already a track-day favorite, but the addition of the new V8 engine, which is also rated at 500hp (373kW), brings the power-to-weight ratio of the roadster to nearly double that of the Bugatti Veyron. With a final kerb weight of approximately 500kg, the new Ariel Atom 500 measures in with a power-to-weight ratio of around 1,000hp/tonne...

    MG prepping new lower-cost TF 135 for UK

  • Mercedes-Benz SL63 Kicherer Evo edition

    Straight out of the box the Mercedes Benz SL63 AMG is already one of the sportiest models in the luxury carmaker’s lineup, but the car’s heady 525hp (392kW) output was never going to satisfy the guys at German tuner Kicherer. Applying lessons learned from its previous K60 Evo, the tuner has upgraded the 6.2L V8 engine to the tune of 560hp (425kW) and 495lb-ft (670Nm) of torque, lifting performance of the SL63 into supercar territory. The added performance sees Kicherer's latest SL60 Evo do the 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.3 seconds (0.3 seconds faster than the standard SL63), with...
