…Edo Competition got their hands on Ferrari’s California?

Edo Competition Ferrari California

Ferrari’s new California convertible isn’t exactly the most aggressive looking car to ever come off of the Maranello assembly line, but for drivers that are looking for hard top convenience with hard edged looks, Edo Competition is more than happy to take over from where the Italians left off.

Features include a bump in horsepower and torque thanks to a remapped ECU and a pair of high-flow cats, a set of custom rims, and the ability to trick out the suspension and the interior if you should find the stock options unsatisfying.

By Edo standards, this job isn’t made of the most aggressive modifications on the planet, but when you’re starting with a canvas as flawless as the Ferrari California, it’s hard to do much to perfection.

…The Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition is one bad bull?

Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition

It’s definitely not a style that matches everyone’s tastes, but I wouldn’t turn down an Edo Competition LP710 Christian Audigier Limited Edition if someone gave one to me!

The car, which takes Lamborghini’s already potent Murcielago LP640 and kicks it up to eleven with a new ECU, new headers, new camshafts, modified cylinder heads, high flow catalytic converters and mufflers, butterfly-valve controlled exhaust cut-outs, and special air filters that bring the car up to 710 hp, also includes a host of other do-dads and whatnots that make it truly one of a kind.

Or so LP710 owners thought before the Christian Audigier edition came along (or rather, five of them) giving the already exclusive car an extra helping of exclusivity.

Each of the new ‘haute-couture’ Lamborghinis are done in matte black on the outside, and then Audigier (of Ed Hardy fame) custom designs an airbrush exterior and a stitched interior to the customer’s specifications.

Power and exclusivity are never a cheap combination, but this is a special case, as each of the five cars to be made will set you back an estimated $690,000! As a result, don’t expect to see this car outside of a well groomed country club lawn or art exhibit/museum near you!

…Edo Competition tried their luck on the Ferrari Enzo?

For Edo Competition, nothing is sacred.

The latest car to go under their knife is the Ferrari Enzo, and despite the fact that many Ferrari purists would argue that the Enzo is perfection embodied, Edo would disagree.

Changes include a new ram-air intake system, high-flow air filters, FXX style headers, high-flowing cats, a new exhaust system with remote-controlled butterfly valves to adjust sound levels on the fly, and a modified ECU that helps power levels reach 700 hp and 527 lb.-ft. of torque.

That power is then moved through a retuned transmission that replicates the shift times of the FXX bretherin, and then out through the 19 and 20 inch blacked out rims that are an Edo special.

Suspension has also seen some improvements, with compression and rebound that have been adjusted to match the FIA GT MC12.

According to Edo, 62 mph is now dispatched in just 3.5 seconds, and the car will reach 186 mph in just 22 seconds.

I guess even perfection has some room for improvement!

…Edo Competition took on the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640?

When you start with a car that’s as close to perfect as the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 is, there isn’t much room for improvement. Never ones to leave well enough alone though, Edo Competition managed to squeeze out an extra 23 horses from the V12 thanks to a new ECU, airflow, and exhaust, bringing the total to 663 horses and 498 lb-ft of torque.

To complete the package, Edo also added a new rear wing with an adjustable lip, carbon fiber interior trim, and a backup camera.

Oh, and this:

…It’s Tuner Tuesday – Edo Competition?

Maserati MC12 XX

Supercar tuners are few and far between, though I’m guessing it’s mostly due to the price of admission, rather than the lack of desire. When looking at the cars made by manufacturers such as Ferrari and Maserati, there are some who are content with just leaving well enough alone, believing that, with a car this expensive, no expense has been spared. Then, there are those like Edo Competition, who believe that you can never have too much of a good thing. Edo Competition, upset by the fact that Ferrari had the FXX while Maserati had nothing, tuned and tinkered with their own MC12, giving it an additional 170 horses (to tie the FXX’s 800 hp rating), and ending up with the oh so creatively named MC12 XX. Additions include all new engine bits and pieces, adjustable exhaust, ceramic brakes, adjustable suspension, wheels and tires, tire monitoring system, and 100 kg of diet along the way. In addition to the car modifications, Edo Competition is also throwing in one day of track testing with an instructor, knowing that you are probably going to try and do everything possible to rip the car in half form the moment you step into the driver’s seat. As a final point of customization, they’ll even paint it whatever color you choose, though I’d suggest staying away from the trick or treat scheme that they went with for their demo car.
