German tuner Wheelsandmore -a brand that prefers to deal with ultra-luxury supercars made in Germany, Italy and Great Britain- has released some preliminary info concerning it new LP620 YarroW tuning program for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder supercar that was first unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2006. Although your normal family sedan would look a bit dated by this time, the Spyder looks as gorgeous and jaw-dropping as on that very day it was presented. It is especially nice that the tuning program doesn’t try to “refresh” the stunner, but instead successfully enhances its strongest qualities by adding just the right amount of mods in a limited number of strategically chosen places.
German tuning specialist Inden Design has just revealed its fresh appearance and engine upgrade program for the 2001-2006 Mercedes-Benz SL 500 R230 luxury performance roadster.
The German tuning alpha-dog will soon start selling its Brabus ECO PowerXtra after-market engine control unit for 2006-2008 Mercedes-Benz cars: the ECU.
The new tuning program for the 2006 Range Rover Sport executive-class SUV by Arden makes the vehicle stronger in the literal sense. The British tuning specialist increases the new crossover’s maximum power by reworking the original 4.2-liter V8 Jaguar AJ-V8 supercharged engine with its displacement increased by almost 15 percent.
The 2006 Lancer performance sedan will soon get its own factory-built tuning package. Although the vehicle’s exterior is not getting any more dramatic or, at least, more presentable, and you don’t get a fire-breathing twin-turbocharged high-displacement engine either (and, as far as I understand, there are no improvements regarding the on-board multimedia and connectivity,) you can still buy a car that combines decent fuel efficiency and, well, a more or less presentable driving dynamics with cheap price. According to the Japanese carmaker, the new special edition 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart SE trim will set you back for reasonable $16,099.
Inspired by the iconic Apple iPod nano media player, Japanese automakers created the new 2006 Mitsubishi iCar Play Edition supermini: a futuristic compact hatchback that not only resembles the famous device with its bio-design exterior, as well as careful attention to details, but is also fully compatible with it.
The Japanese brand has teamed with the British Prodrive tuning specialist to build a limited edition of its highly successful Mazda RX-8 performance coupe. Although the special edition version of the car is still going to be produced by hundreds, there is still a good chance that the 2006 Mazda RX-8 PZ by Prodrive will be much better at retaining its value compared to a ‘normal’ coupe.
The 2006 Lexus IS 220d Sport entry-luxury rear-wheel drive car comes equipped with a 175 horsepower four-cylinder diesel engine with a common rail fuel injection system.
The 2006 Kia Sedona people carrier has successfully passed a series of frontal and side impact crash tests commissioned by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The recently introduced pair of the 2006 BMW 318i Touring and the 318d Touring compact station wagon models targets price-conscious drivers seeking a cost-effective and practical, yet luxurious-looking family car.
Equipped with the new low-displacement, but high-efficient engines, both vehicles seem to deliver just the right combination of power, torque and impressively low fuel consumption. While some snobs and cork-sniffers may sneer at a concept of a “sporty” premium wagon powered by an engine the size of a Coca-Cola can, a more pragmatic person still gets a car that is as practical, as fun to drive however ambiguous it sounds.
