…It’s Tuner Tuesday: ASI W66GTS?

ASI W66GTS Sides

It’s hard to deny that the ASI W66GTS is anything but a head turning car. (In case you were wondering, ASI stands for Accuracy, Spirit and Imagination.)

ASI W66GTS Front And Back

Featuring the company’s dry carbon fiber hood, trunk and wing, the gold Bentley’s strikingly flowered paint scheme is hand painted onto the car by none other than Japan’s very own Nakamura Tetsuei.

If you’re worried that the exterior was the only part of this car to go under the knife though, then fear not, as the twin-turbo W12 was also the beneficiary of a hefty power jump to the tune of up to 800 horsepower.

It’s definitely not a car for everybody, but in a land filled with Ferraris and Lamborghinis, young oil tycoons are having to try harder and harder each day to stand out at the Dubai drive through.

…Edo Competition tried their luck on the Ferrari Enzo?

Edo Competition Ferrari Enzo

For Edo Competition, nothing is sacred.

The latest car to go under their knife is the Ferrari Enzo, and despite the fact that many Ferrari purists would argue that the Enzo is perfection embodied, Edo would disagree.

Changes include a new ram-air intake system, high-flow air filters, FXX style headers, high-flowing cats, a new exhaust system with remote-controlled butterfly valves to adjust sound levels on the fly, and a modified ECU that helps power levels reach 700 hp and 527 lb.-ft. of torque.

That power is then moved through a retuned transmission that replicates the shift times of the FXX bretherin, and then out through the 19 and 20 inch blacked out rims that are an Edo special.

Suspension has also seen some improvements, with compression and rebound that have been adjusted to match the FIA GT MC12.

According to Edo, 62 mph is now dispatched in just 3.5 seconds, and the car will reach 186 mph in just 22 seconds.

I guess even perfection has some room for improvement!

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Spada Vetture Sport TS Codatronca?

Spada Vetture Sport TS Codatronca

Spada Vetture Sport’s TS Codatronca looks like the car Batman would dive if the Batmobile got a bit boring one day.

The front looks like a cross between a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, and a Corvette, and the rear looks like…like…well, it doesn’t really look like anything else on the market right now, since a giant Tetris tail and stealth bomber lines aren’t exactly in vogue over at GM’s design shop.

The interior however is both beautiful and functional, with plenty of suede and carbon fiber to remind you that you aren’t in a car that will serve fleet time as part of a rental program.

The engine also reminds you that you’re in a race-bred car, with 600 horses on tap, and a short ratio gearbox to compile with FIA GT1 regulations.

For the green lovers, there’s an ad-hoc “converter kit” that allows you to fuel the car with E85 ethanol and also gives you a slight increase in torque and power.

It’s definitely not your daddy’s supercar, but then, who wants that anyways?

…The Ferrari California is here?

Ferrari California

Though it might look a little funky from the front, it’s all business from the back and sides.

Ferrari just announced the “hugely versatile, innovation-packed GT Maranello” they’re calling the Ferrari California. (Take that, other states!)

Featuring 8-cylinders of mid-front mounted Grand Tourer power, it’s exclusively a convertible with a folding hard top for when you’re ready to mess up the ‘do.

Specs?

0 – 100 km/h in less than 4.0 seconds, 7-speed dual clutch transmission, multilink rear suspension, F1-Trac traction control system, Brembo brakes, carbon-ceramic discs, etc. Basically, if you want it in a sports car, then it’s there.

To me, the front looks a little bubbly, and the wheels don’t do anything for me, but the back looks pretty good with single tail lights and vertical exhaust, and the side looks pretty good as well with classic proportions, so maybe this prancing horse will grow on me soon enough.

Look for it at Ferrari dealerships and country clubs near you.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: MAT’s Ferrari 308 GTB?

1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 Rally Car

When you think of rally racing and rally cars, you probably don’t think of Ferrari’s prancing horse, but Makela Auto Tuning sure does, since they were the creators of this fantastic 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 rally car.

The process involved stripping the entire car down to its bare frame and then building it from the ground up using all new parts, and the end result speaks for itself.

Be sure to check out their site for more than 250 pictures that document the entire process and every step along the way.
