The German chip-tuning specialist Kubatech has revealed its first ECU upgrade program for the gorgeous 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar. Although not as visually, um, impressive as similar tuning packages designed by, say, Mansory, this particular is also not as expensive either (well, if money is indeed an issue for a person buying an SLS AMG.)

The American coach-builder Hennessey Performance Engineering will reveal its badass 2010 Hennessey HPE700 Camaro supercar on Tuesday, November 3 at the upcoming Specialty Equipment Market Association Show, 2009 (and usually mostly referred to simply as SEMA) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Judging by its exterior, the new customized vehicle is built around a recently presented 2010 Camaro SS two-door sports coupe, which basically means that it was especially easy for the tuning specialist to match powerful engine with deliciously retro-styled, yet muscular exterior.
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.

The refreshed 2010 Nissan GT-R super-coupe has just been unveiled at the international motor show in Tokyo, Japan.
