Volkswagen Touareg II: Royal GT 470 by Hofele Design

Hofele Design has unveiled a new tuning program for the Volkswagen Touareg II.

Dubbed the Royal GT 470, the package features a revised grille, modified fascias, wheel arch extensions and a stainless steel four-tailpipe exhaust system. Customers can also order an electric lowering module (which reduces the ride height by 40mm when parked or traveling at speeds less than 80 kph /50 mph) and 20- to 22-inch alloy wheels.

Under the hood, the 3.0-liter TDI engine can be equipped with a revised ECU which enables it to produce 275 PS (202 kW / 271 hp) and 580 Nm (428 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 35 PS (26 kW / 35 hp) and 80 Nm (59 lb-ft). Thanks to the extra power, the SUV can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 229 km/h (142 mph).

The Audi A1 by Senner Tuning

Following its previous package for the A1, Senner Tuning has a new program for the Audi A1 that boosts power even higher than on its earlier make-over.

This time, output on the 1.4 TFSI (coupled with the S-Tronic 7-speed, dual-clutch gearbox) is boosted up to 165 PS (121 kW / 163 bhp) and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque. The previous tuning was good for 115 kW (156 PS / 154 hp) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft).

Senner Tuning also adds a new exhaust system with double 90 mm end pipes and a KW suspension lowering kit.

This particular tuning job pictured here has the A1 dressed in brown with Amalfi White accents for the mirrors, roof arches and those 19-inch rims - called the Barracuda Tzunamee (Tsunami) which come in dimensions 9 x 19 inches wrapped with 225/35R19 tires.

For the interior upgrade, Senner Tuning provides a multifunction steering wheel, a finish in velvet beige and black as well as floor mats with their own logo.

The total package, car included, cost €36,590.

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK by Carlsson

German tuner Carlsson has a new tuning program for the Mercedes-Benz SLK.

Starting things off under the hood of this iconic cabrio, Carlsson has developed a new C-Tronic kit, with different stages of output boosts, for the new range of CGI engines that go into the SLK.

For the SLK 200 CGI with a standard output of 184 PS (135 kW / 181 PS) - the C-Tronic tuning can dial that up to a maximum of 224 PS (165 kW / 221 bhp). There's also a less powerful boost up to 211 PS (155 kW / 208 bhp).

For the SLK 250 CGI - power gets bumped up to a maximum of 239 PS (176 kW / 236 bhp) from the series' 204 PS (150 kW / 201 bhp).

For aerodynamics/styling Carlsson has a new front lip spoiler and grille inserts made from electropolished stainless steel. At the rear there's the diffuser insert and rear spoiler which increase contact pressure at the rear axle.

Carlsson also lowers the suspension on the SLK by up to 30 mm and adds new wheels with rims offered between 18- to 20-inches in size.

On the inside, Carlsson provides personalized matching beading and stitching with a choice of leathers that include Carlsson Nappa, Carlsson Nappa Exclusive and Carlsson Nappa Exclusive Heavy Weight. The basic upholstering package does the seats, headrests and inside door panels. Carlsson also adds brushed-aluminum pedal pads with its own logos, as well as its own gear shifter. Accent trims come in "Alcantara appliques", carbon or fine wood inserts.

BMW Z4 sDrive35is by Kelleners Sport

German tuner Kelleners Sport has turned the BMW Z4 sDrive35is into a real rager.

The power upgrade involves a tuning of the 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder unit up to an output of 405 PS (298 kW / 400 bhp) and 539 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. That's quite a gain over the already impressive series output of 340 PS (250kW/ 335 bhp) and 450Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque - 500Nm (369 lb-ft) with overboost.

Wheels are available in 19-inch and 20-inch dimensions in either Hamburg or Berlin rims. Special lowering springs reduce the ride height of the Z4 by 20 mm at the front axle and 10 mm at the rear.

On the inside, the tuner adds a three-spoke sport steering wheel, aluminium pedals and foot rests along with velour floor mats. Bespoke interior finishes in leather with wood trims are also on offer by individual customer request.

Porsche Cayenne II by LUMMA Design

German tuner LUMMA Design has a tuning package for the Porsche Cayenne II based on the previous CLR 558 GT kit - this unit in white is called White Pepper.

That previous job involved tuning the Cayenne II Diesel but this time the kit is offered on the Cayenne as is.

The aero parts do an impressive job of adding muscle to the Cayenne, including a front spoiler with air inlets, widening wheel arches, side skirts and a rear diffuser with an intergrated triple-piped stainless-steel exhaust.

LUMMA also includes a lightweight bonnet in the package made of carbon/Kevlar.

As on the previous package, suspension tuning lowers the Cayenne by up to 40 mm and wheels are the 10 x 22-inchers wrapped in 295/30/R22 tires.

RENM RS 250 Black Edition

Australian tuner RENM Performance has a tuning package for the Renault Megane RS.

The RENM RS 250 Black Edition dials power up on the hot hatch to 310 PS (228 kW / 306 bhp) and 430 Nm of torque by means of an ECU remap, a new turbo intercooler, sport air filter and a stainless-steel performance exhaust.

Wheels are the 19-inch Titanium Gray race-light rims while the ride gets lowered by 35 mm (adjustable) with the dampening coilover suspension. The tuner also adds a performance brake system with red calipers.

RENM Performance also offers options such as race seats, seat-belt harnesses and a sport steering wheel.

2012 Ford Focus by Loder1899

German tuner Loder1899 has a neat package for the Ford Focus 2.0 TDCi.

It's always refreshing when a tuner devotes itself to a common man's car and Loder1899 starts things off on the Ford Focus III with a power boost on the 2.0 liter diesel unit that dials output up to 195 PS (143 kW / 192 bhp) and 395 Nm (291 lb-ft) of torque from the series' 140 PS (103 kW / 138 bhp) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft).

Loder1899 also lowers the Focus by 35 mm, adds stainless-steel dual exhaust pipes and offers a full body kit (in carbon-fiber as optional) in an RS-design. The complete package also includes LED daytimers and carbon covers for the headlights.

Wheels on offer include 18-, 19- and 20-inch alloy rims in various designs.

Loder1899 offers the entirety of the package a-la-carte with prices starting at €27,695 (power boost only), including the car.

Audi S5 Cabrio Challenge Edition by STaSIS

STaSIS Engineering has unveiled a new performance package for the Audi S5 Convertible.

Dubbed the Challenge Edition, the model features a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that has been equipped with a revised ECU and a stainless steel sport exhaust system. Thanks to these modifications, the engine produces 410 hp (306 kW / 416 PS) and 370 lb-ft (501 Nm) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds which is 0.7 seconds faster than the standard model.

Besides the engine tweaks, STaSIS also installed Ohlins dampers, Alcon brakes and 20-inch forged aluminum wheels.

2012 Volkswagen Fox New VW Fox

This Volkwagen FOX is why we have designed the Fox particularly with young drivers in mind. An irresistible entry-level price and an extensive range of optional extras allow maximum flexibility to individual price structure. And the VW Fox is also pleasantly economical to run thanks to its low fuel consumption and minimal maintenance requirements. Small exterior, huge interior. Nowhere is this principle better demonstrated than in the VW Fox. With compact exterior dimensions which make the Volkwagen Fox the ideal companion when driving around town. With a surprising amount of legroom and headroom at all four seats. With a double-folding rear seat bench which increases luggage capacity from 260 to 1,016 litres when required. And with a multitude of storage compartments which make the most of the space available.

2012 Volkswagen Fox

New VW Fox is also available with a 4 cylinder 16 valve 1.4-litre, which delivers 75PS combining spirited performance with economical fuel efficiency. Whatever kind of driver you are, wherever you want to go, we have an Petrol engine that's just right for your needs. Our manual gearboxes are highly efficient and designed to give you driving pleasure. Our 5-speed gearbox is positive and easy to use, with the top gear reducing engine revs and therefore improving fuel economy at higher speeds. Cable operation not only saves weight but also results in short lever movement when changing gear. Finally our manual gearboxes are filled with lifetime oil and need no routine maintenance.

Filling stations are not among the preferred destinations of the Fox. Its irresistibly low fuel consumption is sure to get people talking. The petrol engine in 40 kW (60 bhp) version (fuel consumption: 5,8 l/100km; CO2 emissions: 136 g/km) uncompromising driving pleasure and efficient consumption are united at the highest level of technology. And it goes without saying that the engine comply with the strict EU5 emission standard. The Fox inspires with its maximum safety concept. ABS for optimum braking, a reinforced occupant cell, front and side airbags as additional protection for driver and front passenger, and front fog lights for better visibility in hostile weather conditions as well. Experience the extraordinary combination of fascinating driving pleasure and an intelligent safety concept.

Before we even think about the paint finish on your Fox we treat the body shell with our multi-coat rust protection process. We galvanise it to guard against corrosion, add further protection to the underbody and finally apply a flawless base coat. Then we use a cathodic electroprimer, applied by total emersion in a dip bath. This electrostatic process uses the positive and negative elements of an electric current to draw the paint into every corner of the body. Following each application the layer is thoroughly dried and prepared ready for the next process. Now we apply the filler (primer) coat which provides a depth and level to the overall paint layer. The body is then dried in a high temperature (120 degress centigrade) oven, and only then is the Fox ready for the application of the colour coat and subsequent glossy clear coat. This forms the quality, weather proof surface that you expect from a Volkswagen.

The Fox has a lot to offer. The two-person, folding rear seat bench can be adapted to suit your requirements and makes it possible to transport larger items by creating a luggage capacity of 1,016 litres. The height-adjustable driver’s seat ensures a comfortable drive and a good view. The electronic immobiliser and useful details such as cup holders, holder for 1 litre bottles, 12 Volt power socket and a number of flexible storage compartments make the Fox a resourceful companion on both short and long journeys. Individuality was a crucial factor in designing the Fox. Increased flexibility and comfort in the use of space is the innovative result: the rear seat bench is folding and can be split symmetrically; it can be moved forwards and backwards and double-folded, and intelligently adapts the luggage compartment to individual requirements. Manually vented side windows at the rear ensure fresh air without generating a draught.

Next Generation 2012 Volkswagen Jetta

The Volkswagen Jetta always cuts an excitingly good figure. Its sporty silhouette and well proportioned lateral lines give it a look that is simply irresistible, as do the striking front end, the sporty radiator grille and the bumpers that are completely painted in the body colour. A stylish design as far as the eye can see. The Volkswagen Jetta perfectly combines the assets of a top-class saloon with the clear attributes of a compact class car, and it inspires with supreme quality. You can see this with a simple glance at the selected details, for example the chrome strips on the vanes, or the tinted side windows and rear window, which absorb up to 65% of the light.

 2012 Volkswagen Jetta

2012 Volkswagen Jetta

The VW Jetta has far more space than your average car. From the drivers seat all the way back to the rear. Passengers in both the front and the rear will appreciate the ample knee space. With a little more luggage, the boot comes into its own with a capacity of 510 litres. And if you need to carry even more, the backrest can be folded down, allowing you to practically load the goods through. Keep a cool head, or do you prefer it nice and warm? With the "Climatronic" air conditioning system, you can change from one pleasant climate zone to another at the touch of a button. The temperature is electronically controlled, and each side of the car is controlled independently of the other. While you concentrate on driving, an air quality sensor monitors the quality of the outside air and automatically switches to air recirculation mode if this is necessary.

That makes sporty driving fun. Tried-and-tested TSI technology in the Jetta generates maximum power even from a small displacement and it does so with minimum fuel consumption. The direct injection petrol engine is efficiently charged with either a turbocharger or with a combination of turbocharger and compressor. That enables the fuel to be burned so efficiently that the output of the TSI engines is significantly higher than that of conventional, naturally aspirated engines.

The Jetta with BlueMotion Technology impresses with greatly reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions despite putting in a more dynamic performance. This is made possible by intelligent technology that reduces the engine idling speed. By the longer transmission ratio in the higher gears. By the tyres which have been optimised with respect to rolling resistance. And not least by the gear-change recommendation indicator assuming you follow its advice by engaging the most efficient gear.

2012 Volkswagen Jetta

The four-link system accurately controls the longitudinal and lateral movement of each rear wheel individually. Refinement is further improved as the system is mounted on a lightweight sub-frame. This means suspension movement is isolated from the body. Occupant benefits include greater comfort, less body roll in corners and, an involving, nimble chassis with enhanced stability. The dusk sensor system is fitted close to the rain sensor, behind your internal mirror. It detects light levels and automatically turns on the dipped headlights when the levels are low for instance, when you are driving through a tunnel, at night, or when dusk sets in. Your headlights must be switched on for the dusk sensors to work.

2012 Volkswagen New Passat BlueMotion Technology

The Volkswagen Passat impresses at first glance with a sophisticated design that exudes dynamism and self-assurance. From the striking front to the elegant rear: perfectly coordinated details produce a design full of esprit. Stylish, sleek and modern, the VW Passat Estate boasts an unmistakable Volkswagen design. The horizontal lines of the radiator grille are accentuated by elegant chrome louvres and lend the striking front an air of self-assured elegance. The powerful contour of the C pillar creates a dynamic transition to the rear. The first four-door luxury coupé from Volkswagen sets new trends in the area of design. Pure sports car dynamics and uncompromising saloon-style comfort are the characteristic features of the new Passat CC. And the sporty styling is continued at the same high level inside the car: the spacious interior is impressive for its sophisticated materials and the optional panoramic tilting sunroof with its view of the heavens.

Fresh styling means the VW New Passat Saloon now sports the
distinctive Volkswagen 'family face' with a pair of swept-back
headlights framing a distinctive radiator grille with chrome louvres.
Black air intakes with chrome surrounds are added to body-coloured
bumpers and door mirrors to create a smart finish to your Passat Saloon.
At the rear you'll notice the revised LED tail-lights and bumper, while
a new set of alloy wheels and heat insulating green tinted glass
complete the Passat Saloon's dynamic good looks.

Volkswagen's BlueMotion Technology badge identifies the most economical models in the Passat Saloon range, with a host of refinements that are kinder to the environment and also save you money at the pumps. The Passat Saloon with BlueMotion Technology is the most efficient Passat we've ever produced with the 1.6-litre TDI 105PS diesel model achieving an impressive 65.7 mpg (combined figure) and emitting just 114g/km of CO2.

2012 Volkswagen New Passat

The BlueMotion Technology models are a result of their work, designed with a range of energy-saving, emission-cutting technologies to work in synergy with our advanced engines and gearboxes. The measures include visual gear change recommendations for optimum fuel consumption, brake energy recuperation and improved aerodynamics, as well as low rolling resistance tyres and a Stop/Start function. This cleverly switches off the engine when your Passat Saloon is stationary and in neutral and start it again as you depress the clutch.

Whether you prefer it as a saloon or as an estate, one thing is for sure: the Passat R36 with its 220 kW (300 hp) is the most powerful Passat ever. And superlatives are also entirely appropriate to describe its looks. The "Biscay Blue, pearl effect" paint finish, the motorsport-style bumpers typical of the R series and the body-colour wheel arch and sill extensions are genuine highlights. (Fuel consumption: 10.5 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 249 g/km)

2012 Volkswagen New Passat Interior

If someone tries to break into your locked Passat Saloon the alarm will sound and the hazard lights flash continuously. The alarm's interior protection system detects movement inside the car, but can be turned off if you have to leave pets inside for a short time. The Passat Saloon is fitted with our latest Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP), which detects critical situations at an early stage, and takes action to help bring your car safely back under control. ESP links to the Passat Saloon's electronic systems such as the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Engine Braking Control (EBC). It has sensors on the wheels and steering wheel, plus a yaw movement sensor. The ESP plays a further role, utilising electronic differential lock and traction control to help correct oversteer, understeer and loss of stability of the vehicle. The result is optimum traction when rounding bends.

2012 Volkswagen Beetle Classic Modern Concept

The History Volkswagen Beetle was only produced in significant numbers from 1945 onwards, when the model was internally designated the Volkswagen Type 1, and marketed simply as the "Volkswagen". Later models were designated VW 1200, 1300, 1500, 1302 or 1303, the former three indicating engine displacement and the latter two being derived from the type number and not indicative of engine capacity. The Volkswagen Beetle model became widely known in its home country as the Käfer (German for "beetle") and was later marketed as such in Germany and as the Volkswagen Beetle in other countries. In the 1950s, the Beetle was more comfortable and powerful than most European small cars, having been designed for sustained high speed on the Autobahn. It remained a top seller in the U.S., owing much of its success to high build-quality and innovative advertising, ultimately giving rise to variants, including the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and the Volkswagen Type 2 van.

2012 Volkswagen Beetle Interior-Dasboard

The New 2012 Volkswagen Beetle has spread its wings for the 21st century and now boasts a more self-assured road presence. Its proportions give it a far more masculine, flatter and wider appearance. Its silhouette with an extended bonnet, a more steeply angled windscreen set further back and a flat roof line injects it with an unprecedented dynamism, similar to that of a sporty coupé. The Beetle is no exception here, with its dynamic silhouette producing an entirely new sense of spaciousness in the interior. The steeper windscreen positioned further back, a flattened roof line and the enlarged exterior dimensions combine to create a surprising amount of room. The 2012 VW Beetle pays homage to its roots: a compact instrument cluster with an eye-catching round dial in the centre evoke memories of the classic Beetle. Air vents and state-of-the-art infotainment features have, of course, been seamlessly integrated into the dashboard.
