Sitting 40mm lower than the original bumper, the BR-10 front spoiler is partnered by a full length two-piece add-on side skirt that utlizies a carbon-fiber sill extension.A carbon-fiber diffuser can be fitted into the original rear bumper and houses dual aerodynamic fin extensions as well as retaining the original rear brake lights. A trunk-lid spoiler that sits on the factory boot lid is also offered, which Vorsteiner insist will increase down force at high speeds.Completing the tuning program is a set of 22-inch VS-130 five-spoke Forged Aluminum Monoblock wheels.

The first Bentley capable of running on both petrol (gasoline) and bio fuel (E85 ethanol), its 621bhp Flexfuel twin-turbo charged 12-cylinder engine was rated 630 metric horsepower (463 kW; 621 bhp) at 6,000 rpm and 800 newton metres (590 ft·lbf) at 1,700-5,600 rpm - using either fuel. The car has 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (0 to 62.1 mph) acceleration of 3.9 seconds, 0 to 160 kilometers per hour (0 to 99.4 mph) acceleration of 8.9 seconds, top speed of 329 kilometers per hour (204.4 mph), making it the fastest and the most powerful production Bentley ever. The Super sports is already known as the best handling Bentley.
The impressive new 6-speed quickshift transmission matches the peerless engine for an adrenaline fuelled experience. Astonishing 200 millisecond gearshifts and effortless double downshifting. All with a simple touch of the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, improving acceleration and response times throughout the whole gear range.

Ferrari and their out-of-house tuning firm, Michelotto, have wrapped up their initial development for the new Ferrari 458 Italia Grand Am and have begun testing the vehicle on the Fiorano Circuit. If the name for this new racer doesn’t give it away, the 458 Italia Grand Am was produced as the first factory-sanctioned Ferrari to compete in the Grand-Am’s Rolex Sports Car Series GT class under the current GT rules.
The Ferrari 458 Italia Grand Am is based on the GT3 version of the V8-powered Ferrari Berlinetta. The difference between the new 458 Grand Am model and the European version is that the Grand Am develops a total of 500 HP (and not 470 HP like other 458 Italia racing cars) at maximum revs of 8000. Slowing the North American Grand Am down is a 48 mm restrictor and less efficient aerodynamics than the GT version. Compared to a standard 458 Italia, the Grand Am model features a revised braking system (since the car is lacking ABS and traction control) and a roll-over bar which gives greater lateral protection thereby increasing safety. The car is fitted with tires from the Grand Am series’ sole provider, Continental.
