Video: Porsche Carrera GT EVOMS

Is this the perfect sound on a Porsche Carrera GT? You might compare it with a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder accelerating in a tunnel. The sound is amazing! This will make a lot of people go out of the way when you're entering a tunnel. This Carrera GT has been modified by the guys of Evolution Motorsport. They changed the exhaust for their very own muffler bypass pipes.

The pipes aren't the most expensive part of the upgrade, they are only 2700$. Evolution Motorsport also adds an ECU upgrade called EVOMSit. This 7500$ ECU tuning kit for the Carrera GT has been tested under the most severe conditions.

For just a bit more than 10k$, you get a found which, we think, is far better than the original sound.



Thanks to Streetfire for the video.

Spyshots: 2009 Mercedes E-class

Mercedes is getting ready for the 2009 E-class. Even though it has already been spyshot without any tape. the Germans are still driving around with taped cars. Unfortunately this isn't the AMG version. Mercedes is going to introduce a 204 bhp turbodiesel Bluetec which will be very friendly for the environment. Also, they will come up with a BlueHybrid and the AMG version will get 550 bhp from a V8.

Last week I paid a visit to a Porsche dealership which I visited last year. One of my mates told me they had three GT3 RS cars in stock so I was quite excited to check them out. Unfortunately they were all gone, some sold though! Here are a couple of shots I took.

I'm quite a big fan of those old 356 cars, replica or not, I couldn't care less. They look fantastic and if you're lucky enough to own an original one, they are worth quite a lot!

The people from Sweden are capable of making more than Ikea-furniture. A small company called Koenigsegg creates a 800 bhp monster from a V8 engine. The CCX is a car which the driver needs to work in, it's a lot more difficult to drive than a Bugatti Veyron.
