A different kind of tuning: From the Audi S5 to the RS5 Coupe

Posted: 15 Nov 2012 12:01 PM PST

There are many ways in which you can customize a car.  Adding spoilers with unique looks and fitting on large wheels represents only a small part of a giant whole. We’re saying this because many companies release all kinds of auto modification kits that turn the car…into another car. And this is still considered “tuning”.

The best example to support the above statement comes from the experts over at Senner Tuning, which got their hands on a copy of the latest Audi S5 and turned it into a somewhat “Lite” version of the impressive RS5 Coupe. More specifically, the only things that the two Audi models now have in common are: the front spoiler, the rear spoiler and two oval-shaped ornaments of the exhaust system.

From here on now, the latest creation of the famous German tuning company stands out through the black front grille, the carbon fiber on the mirrors and the thresholds and, last but not least, through the small spoilers on its rear window and.trunk. The 20-inch Work VS-XX wheels are also worth mentioning, as they have Vredestein Ultra Sessanta tires on them and come with an adjustable coilover suspension.

The inside surprises with: two-color Nappa leather seat and door covers, countless carbon fiber design elements and, last but not least, a three-spoked sports steering wheel, borrowed from an R8.

If we were to move on to its engine, we could say that things stayed (almost) the same. Specifically because, despite resembling a RS5 Coupe, Senner Tuning‘s new Audi S5 will have the same engine it had when it came out of the Ingolstadt production line. With a slight adjustment: The 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 has been fine tuned to produce 429 horsepower and 501 Nm.

The Germans at TechArt have created a tuning package for the latest Porsche Boxster and released the first pictures and details on the internet.

The German tuning company TechArt has published a set of photos and information regarding a new tuning kit they created for the latest Porsche Boxster (981).

Exterior changes featured in this kit include a new front bumper that’s made out of two parts, a spoiler, design elements for the side mirrors, bigger side vents and a new discrete design for the rear diffuser.

The car’s performance will also improve by installing a suspension kit which lowers ground clearance by 30 mm in the front and by 20 mm in the rear. Furthermore, the exhaust pipes have been replaced with some that have valves that change the sound output of the car, and the standard wheels were replaced with a 21-inch set.
