Seat Leon SC by JE Design

JE Design has prepared a customization package for the recently launched 2013 Seat Leon SC. Revealed several months ago at the Geneva Motor Show, the three-door Leon coupe is already the project for a tuning company as JE Design has modified the range-topping diesel FR version. The 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbodiesel churns 184 HP (135 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) in its standard configuration, but the engineers worked their magic and bumped output to 210 HP (154 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque.
The added power has lowered the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint time from 7.5 to 6.9 seconds while top speed has remained the same at 142 mph (228 km/h). To match the increased output, JE Design is offering a carbon-look aerodynamic package with a front spoiler, side skirts and a rear skirt insert. Both sides of the rear come with twin stainless steel tailpipes while the ride height has been dropped by 30mm. Other goodies available include and adjustable KW coilover suspension, a couple of 18-inch alloys and high-performance tires. JE Design mentions these upgrades are available for the five-door hatchback as well.

BMW M6 by Lumma Design

Lumma Design has introduced its latest aftermarket program for the BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible. The kit starts out with a widebody which can be fitted not only on the M6 models but also on the regular 640i, 650i and 640d versions. Part of this package is an enlarged front spoiler with bigger air intakes, carbon fiber hood, wider wheel arches and a rear diffuser with a quad exhaust setup. Lumma has designed new 21-inch alloys and a rear wing available in a smaller size as well.
The BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible come with a V8 4.4-liter twin-turbo engine developing 560 HP (412 kW) in standard configuration, but Lumma has prepared three upgrade stages increasing output to 630 HP (463 kW), 640 HP (471 kW) and 660 HP (485 kW). The most powerful kit lifts peak torque from the series 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) to 820 Nm (605 lb-ft), enabling both M6s to reach a top speed of 193 mph (310 km/h) while the standard M6s with M Driver's Package can do 189 mph (305 km/h).

Mercedes-Benz A-Class by Carlsson

Carlsson is presenting at IAA in Frankfurt its new aftermarket program for the Mercedes-Benz A-Class which will be available starting next month. After preparing the B-Class last month, Carlsson is ready to show a similar package for its smaller brother, the A-Class. Noticeable exterior changes include a new front spoiler with a different grille for the air intake. It's compatible with all versions of the A-Class (including the AMG Sport version) and so are the redesigned side skirts and rear apron which has an air diffuser.
The new exhaust provides an extra 3 bhp (2.2 kW) and comes with four polished tailpipes with silencer. Carlsson lowered the German hatchback by 35mm and can fit the car with an optional fully adjustable coilover suspension kit. Various wheel designs in sizes ranging from 18 to 20 inches are available, along with an extensive interior customization program providing new leather upholsteries, floor mats, alloy footrests, pedals, door-lock pins and polished door sill panels which can be illuminated.
In terms of power, the A 200 with its standard 156 HP (115 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) can be modified to develop 187 HP (138 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque. In addition, output of the A 250 model can rise from 211 HP (155 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) to 253 HP (186 kW) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft).

Startech Range Rover Evoque LPG

Startech has introduced the Range Rover Evoque LPG, ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Co-developed with Prins, the model has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and an autogas system that injects LPG into the combustion chambers. This results in an "optimized combustion process and consequently an outstanding power yield and clean emissions." While the model produces 240 HP (177 kW), Startech says CO2 emissions cut by 15 percent and fuel costs are reduced by 50 percent. When the 74 liter LPG tank is depleted, the autogas system deactivates to enable the engine to run exclusively on petrol.
If you're looking for fuel savings without the LPG tech, Startech offers a PowerXtra SD 22 kit for the Evoque's 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine. It enables the mill to produce 215 HP (158 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 25 HP (18 kW) and 40 Nm (29 lb-ft). This allows the crossover to run from 0 100 km/h in 8.3 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 200 km/h (124 mph).

Porsche Cayman by TechArt

German tuner TechArt has revised its IAA-bound customization program for the second-gen Porsche Cayman. The most significant change compared to the previous package is the introduction of a larger rear spoiler made from PU-RIM which is adjustable in two stages. We also notice a redesigned rear diffuser and a centrally-mounted dual exhaust arrangement which has a valve-controlled system providing a more powerful sound by simply pressing a button.
Various designs of 21-inch wheels are available upon request in several colors, including with glossy smooth and bi-color finishes. Compared to a standard suspension, TechArt's Cayman is 35mm lower and 25mm closer to the ground in comparison to a version equipped with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).
For the interior the aftermarket specialist offers different types of leather and Alcantara, various trims and decorative stitching, carbon fiber inserts, a three-spoke steering wheel and other bits and pieces to spice up the cabin.

Porsche 911 (997) GT3 by Cam Shaft

Cam Shaft has conducted a series of tweaks on a Porsche 911 (997) GT3 fitted with a Martini livery. They are asking 2,400 EUR for the pearly white wrap not including the Martini livery which costs an additional 900 EUR. Moreover, yet another 750 EUR are necessary to cover the visible door edges and entrances, while for an extra 480 EUR they can fit a 997 GT3 with powder-coated matte black rims.
If there's still money left in the bank, a power hike for the six-cylinder 3.6-liter engine from 415 HP (305 kW) to 435 HP (320 kW) will increase the bill by 1,899 EUR. As a final touch, Cam Shaft recommends ordering KW Variant 3 coilovers for improved handling.

Mitsubishi Pajero by Vilner

Bulgarian design studio Vilner has been given the task to modify the interior of a Mitsubishi Pajero. A Bulgarian client living in Denmark asked Vilner to spice up the cabin of his Pajero and apply a few exterior tweaks as well. They started off by giving the vehicle a brand new paintjob and then moved to the interior where they installed four individual bucket seats. The cabin is now wrapped around in a combination of orange and black leather, along with dark grey Alcantara on the headliner and a few other areas.
Other highlights include a piano black trim and real walnut veneer, together with a new sound system and an individual travel bag with the same finish as the cabin. The piece of resistance is of course the under-door projector showing the Vilner logo.
