Just five years ago, any car with over 500hp was considered extremely impressive. That’s partly why the Lamborghini Gallardo was heralded as one of the Italian company’s finest creations. However, fast forward to 2013 and if a high-performance automobile doesn’t produce more than that magic number, it’s considered underpowered. Sure, all out supercars have progressed substantially, but the super-sedan/coupe market has also exploded with cars such as the CTS-V Coupe producing well over 500hp.
From its GM-sourced engine, the CTS-V pumps out 556hp, making it just as powerful as the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. All of this power is sent through the rear wheels and thanks to some trick electronic work, the CTS-V has been praised for its handling capabilities and overall poise.
And to further enhance the impressive persona of the CTS-V, ADV.1 wheels recently fitted a set of their ADV08SF wheels to the following black example.
The eight-spoke wheels are finished in a gloss shade of silver and feature a chromed outer rim.
Forge Motorsports from the United Kingdom recently release an uprated power assisted steering cooler kit for the Nissan GT-R. The new unit comes after realizing that despite the stable performance set by the GT-R, the factory power steering system can get extremely hot and bothered resulting to uncomfortable reactions.
The Forge Motorsports kit will drastically lower the operating temperatures of the system, improving its efficiency in high-stress situations and well as its longevity overall. The kit includes all the components required to fit, including all brackets, hoses and clips. It has been designed to be located directly behind the intake grill for maximum performance and through the open-fin design, obstruction of the coolant radiator is avoided.
Even though this Audi R8 V10 is currently up for sale for, it’s certainly worthy enough to be given a mention.
The car rolls on P47SC wheels courtesy of HRE measuring 20-inch front and rear. This clean, five-spoke design is not too dramatic and over-the-top to detract from the clean lines of the car, nor to subtle to not overshadow the stock wheels.
For any Audi R8-owning readers out there, these wheels are currently up for sale for just $5,500 having travelled less than 1,000 miles as this R8 V10 is about to be put up for sale.

TTS Performance is currently in the development stages of creating a unique twin-supercharger kit for the Audi R8 V10 which reportedly will lift power to over 700hp and 700Nm of torque when completed.
With the exception of the Koenigsegg Agera and its predecessors, very few production cars utilise twin-supercharged kits and even fewer high-end tuning companies opt for such a set-up as twin-turbos are significantly more popular in the supercar tuning scene.
Although details of TTS Performance’s supercharger kit are scarce, the company did release a video on Facebook courtesy of MRC Tuning who are co-developing the engine. It looks at the new set-up through detailed 3D drawings of the kit and confirms that it’ll utilise two Rotrex C38-61 superchargers.
Additionally, the video gives us or first look into a dyno run of the car, suggesting that the kit is in its final stages of development meaning a public release is imminent!
The Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GT86 have ultimately taken over the tuning scene with various tuners and manufacturers introducing products for the two. German suspension specialist Bilstein has not been left behind as it has released its coilover options for the BRZ/GT86 and they are the B14 and B16 coilover kits.
These kits offer 20mm of ride height adjustment from a lower starting point, which equates to a drop of between -30mm and -50mm, Bilstein says that this is the most that it is possible to lower a vehicle before handling becomes adversely affect and safety is compromised.
As for the B14 kit, it features a pre-set damping rate, allowing the owner to fine-tune the ride height and stance to suit their own needs whilst the B16 kit represents the pinnacle of suspension performance, according to the Germans. Each damper unit has ten steps of adjustment, with bump and rebound being changed together in a carefully pre-set ratio to ensure that the car retains impeccable manners.
Both kits carry full TUV approval and 12 months warranty. The B14 units are priced at 850 + VAT ( 1,020 inc.) and the B16 units are priced at 1,350 + VAT. ( 1,620 inc.)
