    SVP03 started a thread C197 SLS: My SLS BS 2013 in SL, SLR, SLS-Class, and AMG GT
    I have got a SLS AMG Black Series with only 180 km. It is for investment for the prices is on the way up. Are there any who know how many BS there were make total, i here from 350 to 450 total. I have also a new 911 GT3 RS 2016 delivered in december 2015. The old one from 2011-2012 with low km is allready higher in price than from new. The next is a 918, but with 918 total i will wait and see how the prices is when all the cars are delivered.

    The McLaren P1 versus the Porsche 918 Spyder. Both of these cars have carbon fiber tubs and body panels. Both have small displacement, high revving V-8s packed between their passenger compartments and rear axles. Both use twin-clutch transmissions, carbon ceramic brakes, and active aerodynamics. Both have roughly 900 hp. Both are plug-in hybrids. And today, with the help of pro racing driver Randy Pobst, we find out which one is fastest around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

    Education is valuable. Do not get us wrong here. Knowledge is certainly power. However, institutionalized education does not equal success or knowledge. Just because someone has a PHD does not necessarily mean they can afford an Underground Racing twin turbo Gallardo. This guy can though and he's making a point that he did not need a PHD to get there.

    That's more like it! We are starting to see 10's consistently from the C7 Z06. Namely the 8L90 automatic models with their quick shift speeds. High 10's in the 1/4 mile have been the norm but now we with the addition of drag radials and skinny front tires stock cars are going deep into the 10's. What makes this remarkable is that this is not with flex fuel E85 or any changes to the motor. Skinny tires up front of course help as does the traction from the drag radials as the 1.512 60 foot shows. Look at the second slip though with the 1.599 60 foot. A 133.10 trap speed which up to this point is the fastest recorded on the stock motor. That certainly is more like it but the Z06 still is not exceeding the ZR1. This is a Z07 car though and that package produces significant drag. Regardless, a couple minor mods (maybe even just E85) and this car is in the 9's.

    Following on from our tradition in developing on the M5/M6 platform (E39 M5 Headers, Intakes, Supercharger Kit and E60 M5 Headers, Intakes, Valvetronic Exhaust) we recently purchased our own F10 M5 and started developing on the FXX platform. First up is the ECU tune which currently has to be bench flashed. We do this in house at our UK HQ but will be setting some of our dealers in the US to carry out the upgrade for US customers. OBD tuning once the ECU has been bench flashed will be possible at some point but we do not have a time line for this yet. The results below are for our Stage 1 on 93 octane. We are developing a Stage 1 + and then a Stage 2 with our own DP's and Eventuri Carbon Intakes. Vbox times to follow for each stage as soon as the weather clears up over here :D 2013 F10 M5 completely stock Testing carried out on our Dyno Dynamics in Shoot Out mode. Peak Power is up 71 WHP with up to 85 WHP in the mid range. Torque is up 90 WTQ. Tunes include top speed delimit and Stage 2 will include CEL delete for cat less DP's. Wheel Horse Power Flywheel Power We are working on a more powerful tune for stock cars which will be Stage 1 + and will release it once we have carried out more road testing. Here is a teaser of the Eventuri Intakes that are in development. A separate post on these will be made soon.

    PoscheBoost just a few days ago posted photos of the BBi Autosport 3.8 liter big bore 997.1 Turbo package. We are now posting more awesome Porsche flat-6 photos from BBi Autosport. If you have a problem with it you probably are not an enthusiast as this stuff is jaw dropping. Pushing the flat-6 to 4.25 liters is really approaching the limit. You can see the sleeves they use to provide more material to increase the bore while maintaining strength as well as the new crank and rods for increasing the stroke. This type of kit is for someone who just absolutely needs every last ounce of displacement out of their motor. That means everything for road racers. For someone who is turbocharged and trying to push the limit they do not necessarily need this kit as at that point more material and block strength are what matter. Then again, there are people who have to have the absolute maximum of everything. This kit will work with the 996, 997.1, and 997.2. PorscheBoost does not see any reason it can not apply to naturally aspirated or forced induction builds. BBi no doubt can spec the compression ratio and pistons to whatever a customer desires. Pretty damn sweet though, isn't it?

    This is one of those stories that is only a story because the reporting entity is big enough to make it one. Autoblog (who gets some very big details wrong mind you) says they spoke to a Volkswagen board member by the name of Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neusser and he said the USA would get the Golf R400. Apparently Volkswagen likes the US response to the MKVII Golf and Volkswagen desperately needs to make its US lineup more exciting to pick up slumping sales and a slumping presence. So the main problem here is that the Golf R400 is just a concept and has not been approved for production. CAR said the car was approved for production but CAR is known for pulling things out of their you know what to get hits and magazine sales. Volkswagen has yet to officially confirm a production model. Volkswagen has been talking for what seems like forever now about having the most powerful production four-cylinder motor in the world. The R400 would take the title from the AMG M133 motor. But where is this engine? The Audi RS3 was supposed to have it but it instead uses the 2.5 TFSI inline-5 (thankfully). That works out well for VW as even if the Golf out powers the RS3 it has a smaller and higher strung motor. So VW and Audi will not exactly be directly stepping on each others toes. We will have to wait and see if VW produces this model but considering all their hype and talk they kind of have to now. If they do, they also will be held accountable for their board members comments meaning they have little choice but to bring the vehicle to the USA. Don't screw this up VW. Source
