When you say Mercedes-Benz you first think of power meeting high-performance and luxurious design and interior, and who can best customize these German cars other than the folks from the company`s tuning division, Brabus?
Well, this time Brabus has created its unique version of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG-Line, fitting the model with some power upgrades, as well as a fresh body style.
I am heading under the hood, the most interesting part in my opinion, where the Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG-Line has gained a power boxe, managing an increase of 21 horses in the C180 version and reaching a total of 177 horsepower.
After the North American based MTM tuning company to modify the gorgeous Audi S8 Talladega, is the B&B German tuning division`s turn to offer some important engine upgrades for the one-off Audi TT. Prices are also revealed.
First off, the Audi TT has been fitted with the 2.0-liter TFSI engine with the Stage 1 kit, which consists of an electronic injection feature and an increase in the charger pressure.
The Audi TT now outputs an impressive 300 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque, compared to the stock 230 horses and 270 Nm of torque. That would come with a price of 1,198 euros for the entire kit, which is not expensive at all.
Unlike other tuning divisions that customize different hot rides but don`t provide their prices, the MTM tuning division has announced the whopping 189,708 euros for the recently upgraded Audi S8 Talladega, the model being sold out in a limited edition.
As common to customized Audi vehicles, this one also boosts with power, as the MTM tuner has fitted the Audi S8 Talladega with some upgrades to its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 unit.
We are talking about a raised 760 horsepower and 945 Nm of torque, which is visible important from the stock 520 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. This should be enough for the luxurious and powerful model to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in an amazing 3.5 seconds. Imagine riding such an extraordinary machine.
Vorsteiner revealed a new tuning kit for the BMW M4, namely the GTRS. The tuning specialists focused on styling tweaks and mechanical changes with no performance upgrades.

Linked to a seven-speed M DCT transmission, the 0-100 km/h sprint is possible in 4,1 seconds while the top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 280 km/h when you get the M Driver’s Package as well.

The lovely Mazda2 is ending up in our news again wearing a wagon body style, thanks to the renderings signed by the famous designer Theophilus Chin.
It was absolutely inevitable for the Japanese based car not to be rendered in a wagon body style, that would complete the entire flat, after the unveiling of the model at the beginning of the year and the official launch of the Mazda2 Sedan a few days back.
As seen in the renderings, the Mazda2 Wagon is looking even greater than the present model, coming with some design cues borrowed from the Mazda6 model, with a round shape and an attractive look. But perhaps the chances of seeing the wagon version in the near future are almost zero.
