…The factory tuners are coming?

To Catch A Preditor

Motive’s article, To Catch A Predator, which is all about the current trend of factories bringing their hot rod building in-house, is another example of why Motive is quickly becoming the place to go on the web for interesting automotive information.

The full range of tuners is covered, including AMG, M Division, John Cooper Works (JCW), Nismo, SVT/Ford Racing, SRT, Quattro GmbH, F, SS, GXP, V-Series, Super, Alpha, STI and Mazdaspeed, so if you’ve got a brand, they’ve got a tuner for you.

Perhaps the muscle car wars aren’t over after all…

Unfortunately, the interior suffers from a severe case of rental-car-itis, but when it’ll do this all day:
