…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mansory Chopster?

Mansory Chopster

The Mansory Chopster is what happens when Mansory gets their hands on a Porsche Cayenne, and the carbon fiber factory has a sale.

Mansory Chopster Detail

Both the exterior and the interior have been thoroughly reworked to include carbon fiber on almost every surface, with the exterior getting a widebody kit and a roof chop in the process.

The engine also got reworked, and now has 710 hp and 900 Nm of torque thanks to a new engine management system, bigger turbos and reworked air intakes.

The Chopster is definitely not a car that will appeal to everybody, but if you want to stand out from the crowd, then this is definitely one way to do it.

…Turbo impresses for less?

Turbo

Turbo hopes to redefine the way we think about movie making, with a budget of under 100K, a four man team of special effects artists that took just five months to do their work using consumer-level applications, and a camera that doesn’t break the bank. (RED)

The trailer for Turbo is below, and then keep an eye out for the film’s premier on April 30th:

…The Hamann Stallion is mean?

Hamann Stallion Exterior

Hamann’s Stallion is a Porsche 911 Turbo based monster.

With 630 horses coming from the twin turbocharged, 3.6 liter engine, the car gets to 60 in just 3.3 seconds (a full six tenths of a second off of the regular turbo), and has a new maximum speed of 359km/h (223 mph).

Hamann Stallion Interior

As if a monster engine wasn’t enough, Hamann also lowered the roofline by up to 8cm for extra aerodynamics, and mounted a huge wing to the back in case you decide to fly. (Because at the speeds you’d be going in one of these, that’s a definitely possibility.)

Now if they just offered it in a color besides gold…

…Ken Gushi’s Scion tC looks bad ass?

Drift Scion tC

The Scion tC might not seem like the ideal drifting car, but with 400 horsepower and a rear wheel drive conversion, I’m sure Ken Gushi will make do.

The car, modified by RS*R, will debut at this weekend’s Formula Drift, and features a BEAMS-built 32-GE engine, an HKS GT3037 turbo, an intercooler, and a Blitz and AEM engine management system.

Additional mods include a G-Force five-speed, coilovers, and a custom wide-body kit.

I can’t wait to see it in person, but even in these pictures, it looks like one angry Scion.
