Vorsteiner BMW VR-7 Sportiv Aero Package

Posted on 03.10.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

We can finally pull the curtain off a little side project we’ve developed with Vorsteiner.  The aero wizards are using MotorworldHype’s “Grand Sport Sedan” F01 BMW 7 Series project (AKA “Biggie”) to show off the new VR-7 Sportiv Aero package.  The VR-7 Sportiv Aero package was a design collaboration between RJ and Vorsteiner’s own designers.  From the start of this project RJ and Vorsteiner wanted the Sportiv Aero package to be an example of a performance asthetic driven by subtlety and I’m going to go ahead and say I think we pulled it off.  We wouldn’t have been able to bring “Biggie” along this far without the help of Vorsteiner, Michelin, H&R Springs, and Street Concepts!  Thanks to all of our partners for their support!

Not only does the VR-7 Add-On Front Spoiler provides for a more prominent and confident tone in the overall front-end design but it also adds an increase in front-end downforce and stability.

The VR-7 Replacement Diffuser takes on a new motif, featuring subtle contours, edges, and indentations that complement the body lines of the new 750i yet contribute to its new sportive attitude . Its bold undertones perfectly embody Vorsteiner’s traditional of blending purpose, function, and distinctive style.

  • Brushed Aluminum

Power House Amuse Nissan 370Z Vestito Aero Kit

Posted on 03.08.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

I honestly did not think Power House Amuse would be able to top the Superleggera arero that was tailor made for the 350Z (Z33).  However I can happily say I stand corrected!  Their new Vestito kit for the Nissan 370Z is one of the freshest aero treatments I’ve seen on ANY car!  I am sure some will probably think this is too much, too wide, etc but to me the lines are perfectly balanced. 

As far as I know, you can’t buy the Vestito kit in America yet but, I would be willing to bet that if anyone has it or is going to get it, it will probably be Bulletproof Automotive and/or Evasive Motorsports.  If you have the cash (I’m guessing this kit will go for at least $10k) I would jump on the phone with one or both of those shops and see what you can do about a pre-order ASAP.

Vorsteiner Debuts Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Aero Package

Posted on 02.24.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Vorsteiner just released a brand new box of carbon fiber candy in the form of an aero package for the Mercedes Benz C63 AMG and it is freakin’ sweet! It starts up front with a lip spoiler, then fininshes off with a rear deck lid spoiler and rear diffuser.  This set up looks so fresh, especially with the new V-101 wheels at the corners! 

   

Press Release:

Vorsteiner debuts the Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Aero Package

Pressing onward with the latest in our Mercedes Benz lineage, Vorsteiner is proud to announce the advent of the Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Aero Package. Respectfully following the CLK Black’s heritage, the C63 AMG Aero Package has been meticulously designed and tested to meet Vorsteiner standards of quality, both in style and performance.

Every component in the C63 AMG package is created using a state-of-the-art aerospace autoclave system which utilizes a resin pre-impregnated, vacuum-formed carbon fiber. This results in an up to 30% stiffer and stronger structure when compared to an equivalent wet-lay product.

The C63 AMG Front Spoiler borrows accents from the CLK Black Series while maintaining a genuine C63 feel, graciously contouring the front AMG factory bumper. In its design, the form follows function while considerably increasing downforce to the front of the vehicle using lightweight carbon fiber.

The C63 AMG Rear Diffuser provides an aggressive appearance to the rear of the vehicle, sporting a dual-fin diffuser system. The diffuser is further enhanced by a central vent, cooling the exhaust while accentuating the bumper in a subtle, yet bold manner.

The final component in the C63 AMG Package, the Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler, arms the C63 with bold distinction as an homage to the sportiness of  the CLK Black. The carbon fiber spoiler imparts its statement through the addition of downforce, flawlessly complementing the front spoiler, both in elegance and purpose.

Our C63 AMG features the Vorsteiner V-101 Monoblock Forged wheel. The V-101 design features an 8 twin spoke mesh, extending out to the edge of the wheel, enhancing the overall appearance and form. The tire of choice is nothing less than best with the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 that aid in gripping the road for optimal acceleration and handling.

Front and rear wheel dimensions are available in 20×8.5 inch and 20×9.5 inch or 19×8.5 inch and 19×9.5, respectively, providing an aggressive powerful stance.

The V-101 is available in the following finishes:

  • Brushed Aluminum
  • Chrome
  • Gunmetal
  • Black
  • Silver
  • Textured Black
  • Texture Gunmetal

Custom finishes are available on request.

The V-101 includes Vorsteiner anodized aluminum carbon fiber center caps.

Knight Sports Carbon Fiber Front Lip For 2009-2010 Mazda RX-8

Posted on 01.20.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

With Tokyo Auto Salon in full effect right now I decided to comb through the “JDM” folder in my browser favorites just to see if there was anything new out there, or new to me anyway.  I knew right away that Knight Sports wouldn’t disappoint.  Even though the re-freshed Mazda RX-8 has been out for a little while there hasn’t been much exterior support for it so I was glad to see that Knight Sports has produced a front lip.  Their lip really sets off the already aggressive design of the OEM front end and adds a new personality to it.   The only problem is I don’t know of any Knight Sport distributors in the states so I have no idea how one would be able to get their hands on one of these unless you are fluent in Japanese and/or “know a guy!”  Ah well, its still nice to know its out there…

Tommy Kaira GT-R

Posted on 01.15.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

I know this is a bit random but its kind of a slow auto news day.  So when I was doing my aimless Internet trolling I found a few pics from the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon (RJ is there right now) and I saw a familiar name “Tommy Kaira.”  Remember them?  They’re making something of a come back at this year’s TAS with a GT-R body kit (as seen above).  The styling is pretty wild but it not enough to set off my “wack-sauce” alarm.  Although, I’m not sure I’d rock it when I could get the Ventross kit.  What do you guys think?

Posted on 01.08.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

The BMW 3 series coupe just got better!  Vorsteiner finally dropped their M-Tech Aero Package for the E92 a few days ago.  If you couldn’t pony up for the M3 this is the next best thing asthetically.  We’re still waiting for more info on the new aero package but expect the same high quality carbon fiber construction that Vorsteiner is known for.  As soon as we get more of the deets on the new package we’ll pass it on ASAP.

   

Press Release:

The V-MS 2-piece front splitters slightly extends the profile of the factory front bumper to further aid in down force while adding a stylish sporty element to the front end. The outer surrounding areas of the splitters are designed to be painted to give an integrated and clean factory look while the exposed carbon fiber areas pay homage to the racing heritage.

The rear bumper is complemented with a totally redesigned replacement carbon fiber rear diffuser that simply attaches to the factory mounting points. The new sporty carbon fiber rear diffuser houses a centrally placed exhaust ventilation opening which aids in cooling the exhaust system. The diffuser also has 2 integrated aero fins placed next to the air vent to improve airflow and downforce.

Optional items not illustrated in our demonstration vehicle are a carbon fiber deck lid spoiler and 19″ & 20″ forged 3-Piece and 1-Piece Monoblock wheels.

Posted on 12.22.09 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

With Ferrari already making it up to 458 with the new Italia, there may be some 360 Modena owners out there looking to freshen up their look. Just in time for the new year Premier 4509 has announced a new body kit for the 360 that adds some more aggression to the stock lines. There is also a bit of carbon fiber here and there which finishes up the kit nicely. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in the $10k range.

Vorsteiner Bentley Continental GT BR9

Posted on 11.10.09 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Vorsteiner just dropped some new aero for the Bentley Continental GT at this year’s SEMA show.  Slightly inspired by the Continental Supersports the Vorsteiner set up features a few extra functional scoops in the front to direct fresh air to the intercoolers.  The new look definitely ads some grunt to the otherwise understated lines of the Bentley Continental.  As with everything from Vorsteiner all the pieces of this kit are available in their famous vacuum bagged dry carbon fiber.
