Kahn Aston Martin Cygent

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

The British tuner Kahn has started working on the Aston Marti Cygnet.

But since this is something big, they haven’t announced a date for the car to be revealed. They have some deep plans for the little Astons.

Kahn was probably not happy with the Aston and announced a serious program for it to make it more refined and interesting. He is already decided on the colour scheme and is in the very midst of developing the look.

The goal is to ultimately turn the Cygent into a style icon. A relatively small icon, but an icon nonetheless.

Aston Martin DBS By Anderson Germany

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

If you think Aston Martin DBS is actually too elegant and you want to trade some of its charm for more showing off, Anderson Germany’s new kit is just the thing for you!

The call it the superior black, and it comes wrapped in black matte black foil, and black 21-inch wheels and blacked-out grilles. The only contrasting parts on the outside are the red brake calipers.  This black treatment certainly makes the DBS more of a head-turner but it’s not just as majestic and prestigious as the standard car.

They’ve done the same thing with the interior but with more red bits. You get lots of carbon fiber, leather and Alcantara which is nice, but it’s now like sitting in a ghastly night club!

Besides the visual upgrades, Anderson also provides you with 560 hp hp which is 50 more than the standard car.

Aston Martin DBS with edo Competition tuning

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

Because Aston Martin DBS is a literally perfect car, you wouldn’t think about modifying it. But if some do edo competition is here to help!

Their tuning package for the DBS makes it a little bit more juicy and helluva lot more fun. They tweak the car’s 6.0 liter V12 engine which develops 517 hp in the standard form, and turn the heat up to 550 hp and 600 nm of Dyno-proved torque. This has been achieved by installing a new sport exhaust system and remapping the ECU.

As a result, you can do 0 to 100 km/h in the edo DBS in just 4.1 seconds and reach top speed of 320 km/h. These are astonishing numbers considering the weight of the car.

As for the styling, everything remains pretty much standard, but you do get new 21-inch three-piece racing wheels which come with Continental tires size 255/ 30 ZR 21 for front and 295/ 25 ZR 21 for the rear.

Mansory Cyrus based on Aston Martin DB9

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

This is what you can call an ultimate tuning job! Mansory, who specializes in modifying high-end supercars has picked an Aston Martin DB9 and went berserk with it to make this, the Cyrus.

The car features a totally revised body which comes in naked carbon fiber. It is the first time that a car in this class gets such a treatment. Full carbon body is still exclusive to multi-million dollar supercars.

Apart from the materials, the bodykit itself is a work of art. You get a modified front bumper with a spoiler lip and an extended grille, new side skirts, and a new rear diffuser plus a pair of central exhausts right in the middle of it. There’s also a trunk lid spoiler.

Aston Martin Cyrus uses 9×20 and 10,5×21 wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx tyres measuring 255/30ZR20 at the front and 295/25ZR21 at the back. It also has adjustable coil-over suspension which lowers the center of gravity enhancing both looks and road handling.

A car like this must have an equally astonishing interior to cope, and the Cyrus has it of course! The entire modification includes pedals and foot rests made of aluminium as well as exquisite door sills and head rests with embroidered CYRUS logos. There’s also new carbon fiber trims for the dashboard and center console. You also get a very fine red leather upholstery and a leather/carbon steering wheel.

The Cyrus kit is available for Aston Martin DB9 and DBS.
