German tuner GAD Motors, has come up with a ECU remap for the M133 two-liter four-cylinder engine for the A45 AMG. The 360 HP the unit delivers when it leaves Affalterbach are accompanied by a peak torque of 332 lb-ft. With the new software, the unit allows the driver to play with 430 HP and 406 lb-ft.
With a 0 to 62 mph sprint of 4.6 seconds, the A45 AMG already entered sportscar territory, but now that time has been cut to 4.1 seconds. As for the 0 to 124 mph run, the ECU remap shaves around 3 seconds, bringing the time to 14.3 seconds.
In order to add a personal touch to the look of the hot hatch, CAD Motors gifted the car with a set of OZ Racing Superforgiata wheels, which come in a 19-inch size and are wrap in Pirelli rubber. The entire package is wrapped in a hue that has “Minty Green”. This is GAD Motors’ Stage One upgrade for the engine, with the tuner explaining there is room for more.
Carlsson has release a tuning program for the 2014 C-Class.
Changes start at the front where the tuner installed a different front bumper equipped with side air intakes and a spoiler lip that can be optionally had in carbon fiber. The redesigned front grille features a single chrome horizontal bar with the Carlsson’s logo and is also available with an electro-polished stainless steel mesh that can be had for the lower intakes as well.
Moving to the back, Carlsson mounted a boot lid spoiler along with chrome tailpipe surrounds built into the rear valance. The tuner is also offering 30mm lowered sport springs, beefier side skirts along with a choice of 18- to 20-inch alloy wheels available in different finishes like titanium, graphite and diamond. Changes continue on the inside with velour floor mats, wood and carbon fiber inserts, illuminated door sill scuff plates, alloy pedals and various types of leather upholstery. Matching these visual enhancements will be a wide array of power upgrades that are currently in the works at Carlsson’s headquarters in Merzig, Germany.
Voltage Design has prepared a tuning package for the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe.
It’s hard to imagine an S63 AMG Coupe owner who would be willing to mess around with Mercedes-Benz’s design but Voltage Design has created a styling kit for such a niche. Voltage Design has developed a carbon fiber package encompassing the radiator grille (including Mecedes logo), front spoiler, front apron wings, hood air inlets, mirror caps, side skirts, diffuser and tailgate spoiler. The entire hood and grille can be made from the same lightweight material for an additional cost.
There’s also a considerably upgrade for the V8 5.5-liter twin-turbo lifting power from 585 HP and 664 lb-ft to no less than 800 HP and 848 lb-ft. The extra boost was obtained by fiddling with the engine’s electronics, installing a custom exhaust system with valve command, upgrading the manifold and charge air cooler as well as installing larger turbos.
More power commands better brakes so the S63 AMG Coupe received a larger carbon ceramic system hiding behind Vossen CVT 22-inch alloy wheels while the custom springs can lower the ride height between 10 mm and 35 mm.
