Aston Martin Daytona Prototype in the Works

Aston Martin Daytona

The Racing Group (TRG) has been busying itself developing an Aston Martin Daytona prototype. The California-based TRG team has partnered with Aston Martin Racing to form TRG-AMR North America, LLC. Their mutual goals are paving the way for a very exciting racing circuit.

The V12 Aston Martin Vantage GT3

Kevin Buckler, owner of TRG, described the Aston Martin Daytona prototype as follows: “The V12 engine sounds fantastic, but for what’s being developed, that’s not the exact package we’re looking at. There’s still a lot of work to be done, but the vision we’re aiming towards, if you want to try and picture it, is to have two DP cars coming down the front straight at Daytona that look like a prototype version of the GT3 car.” read more

Mansory La Revoluzione Packs As Many Ponies as Bugatti Veyron?

Mansory La Revoluzione

Specialty after-market tuner Mansory has done it again! And by done it I mean taken another already spectacular supercar and infused it with a heavy dose of power and style.  The Mansory La Revoluzione is especially impressive, claiming to pack 1200 horses. To put that into perspective, that is the exact number found in a stock Bugatti Veyron.

Check Out the Mansory La Revoluzione: A Tuned Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

Polished PR Shots of the Porsche LMP1 Racecar

Porsche LMP1

A few months back we saw a few difficult to analyze images of the next-generation of Porsche racing when some shots leaked of its LMP1 racer testing. Now the PR department appears to have polished up some shots of the Porsche LMP1 car to jumpstart the clamoring process. It is working. The racer will debut at an unknown time for its 2014 season.

Will Porsche’s new LMP1 prototype burn through competition on the racing circuit? The team has high hopes and intends to go in full-throttle.

The shiny new professional shots show that the Porsche LMP1 is still coated in camo. The veiled disguise does little to hide the racer’s attributes, which include a sharply aerodynamic body and elongated form. It appears that Audi has inspired the tail lamps, which are vertically mounted ultra-thin LEDs located on the tips of the rear wing. The head lamps are the Porsche preferred four-bundle look. read more

Wheelsandmore Tweak Aston Martin Vanquish

We have mentioned projects by German aftermarket tuner ‘Wheelsandmore’ in the past. The talented tuner is at it again, this time tweaking an Aston Martin Vanquish. The matte black wheels alone make the upgrades appealing.

Aston Martin Vanquish tweaked by talented tuner Wheelsandmore. The colors and small details turned out to be very smooth.

  • An F1 air filter
  • Valve controlled exhaust
  • ECU upgrade kicks the ponies from 573 up to 600
