Volvo V40 Pirelli by Heico Sportiv

Pirelli and Heico Sportiv have revealed a specially tuned version of the Volvo V40 to celebrate Pirelli's jubilee.
They used as foundation a V40 T3 model equipped with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. Output has been lifted from the series 150 HP (110 kW) to 200 HP (147 kW), while torque has gone up from 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) to 300 Nm (221 lb-ft). As a result, 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 7.9 seconds, making it 0.9s faster than the stock model. Top speed has also increased from 130 mph (210 km/h) to 143 mph (230 km/h).
The Volvo V40 Pirelli by Heico Sportiv rides on 8x19 VOLUTION VII wheels shod in 235/35 R19 P Zeros. Other changes include a 30mm lowered suspension and a custom body kit with a bi-part front spoiler and a diffuser-look rear skirt. The black and red theme exterior is continued inside the cabin where there are velour floor mats with embossed tire-tread profiles. Heico Sportiv says this special package can be ordered with other engines offered by Volvo.

1993 Bugatti EB110 SS by Brabus

Specialty British dealership Oakfields is selling an ultra-rare Bugatti EB110 Super Sport modified by Brabus for 475,000 GBP (about 740,000 USD / 560,000 EUR). The German aftermarket specialist modified two EB110s but only this one was the lighter and more powerful SS version. Produced in 1993, the vehicle has been fitted with a custom quad exhaust system, blue leather seats and a blue & black leather dashboard.
As a reminder, Bugatti built only 31 units of the SS and all came with a mid-mounted V12 3.5-liter quad-turbo engine outputting 615 bhp (458 kW) mated to a six-speed manual transmission sending those ponies to all four wheels. Lighter than the stock model by about 150 kg (330 lbs), the SS hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 216 mph (348 km/h).
