#65532;Standing shoulder to shoulder the supercars, stylists and mainstream car at the 2012 Geneva Salon de l’Auto are the tuners. Here in the order of the day is to take an already hot car – and the heat up even further. engines, more extreme styling, lower stances… of the cars look look game renders!

If your car isn’t quite exclusive these are the companies you turn to. And are a surprisingly large number of around, even for cars have barely rolled off respective production lines.

it’s not just the supercars get attention: even more cars can be given the tuner – and usually for the better.

RUF are well-known for reinterpretation of Stuttgart’s finest: at they celebrated their 1977 RUF Turbo 3.3 with the of the new RT-35 Anniversary (the metallic green car from is parked up behind its new young

The RT-35 is based on the new 991 model: its unit pushes out 630hp. The front styling is matched at the more bespoke shaping to the big turbocharged 3.8-litre six, the enormous scoops on the flanks.

to RUF, their CTR-3 harks back to the Le Mans of the 1950s. However, I’m not that there was this carbon fibre in the world I see it as more an Exige crossed a Carrera GT. The Clubsport’s twin-turbocharged 3.8 flat-six has an output of 750hp, a frighteningly high top speed of and is another model echoing an RUF design – this time the CTR from two decades ago.

The other new 991-based RUF on display, the has a unique RUF-developed V8 shoe-horned the back, producing 550hp and towards a 200mph top-speed. The V8 was inspired by racing technology and hemispherically arranged valves, a flat crankshaft, dry sump and direct drive ancillaries all drive belts. It’s to sound mind-blowing, basically.

sneaked Alpina in here – are technically a full-blown manufacturer – as of high performance BMWs. had their B6 Bi-Turbo Coupé on the all-aluminium V8 is supplemented by two turbo-chargers in each feeding one of the two cylinder The eight-speed gearbox smooths the way to a top speed.

Alpina were showing off their B3 GT3, the marque’s victory in the 2011 ADAC GT Masters series. 99 cars will be made, and you can get it in a of the GT3 racer’s livery – though logos on a road car are rarely I would suggest… It’s a shame that the body kit ape the extreme styling of the racer.

FAB Design are a Swiss styling they had a trio of cars at including another modified MP4-12C. The MP4-12C Terso Lamborghini-style polygonal cut-outs and edges, breaking up the softer lines and giving it a much aggressive stance – something the McLaren has been accused of out of the box.

FAB have created a new diffuser and rear wing, and upped the performance of the 3.8-litre V8 by 10%. The rear wing is a but it’s interesting to note there’s a thin lip of a wing in front of the windshield. Just example are due to be built.

They had their take on the Mercedes-Benz the Roadster Jetstream in a stunning, translucent candy-red, a topless of their vicious-looking Gullstream – much a race-car for the road.

are better known for their tuning, but they’re another who have snuck in a McLaren a one-off tied into a 2012 FIA GT3 racing programme the car. This one has less styling applied than the McLarens about the show, and is an aesthetic make-over.

The third of turned out to be four MP4-12C the Mansory version widens and the original, and adds even carbon fibre – which wasn’t possible! New engine and exhaust systems bump up the by the by now expected figure of 10%, and the top climbs to 353kph.

Mansory have applied touch to a wide range of vehicles: with the Bentley Le Mansory II they’ve attempted at the multi-ton behemoth by the liberal of carbon fibre – despite of expanding the bodywork yet further. the car delivers the perfect symbiosis of functionality and luxurious ambience. is nothing ambient about car, I would suggest.

to planet Earth for the Abarth 695 Maserati, a limited run of 499 cars a 1.4-litre Turbo T-Jet 16v mated to a 5-speed paddle-shift Competizione gearbox, Maserati 17 alloys, 305mm Brembo and a Record Monza variable dual-mode exhaust. How to make a car even greater.

Abt Sportsline are internationally for their DTM participation Audi, but the tuning company had a of glorious day-glo VWs on their at Geneva alongside their four-ringed models. Its Beetle has a 2-litre TFSI unit and a whole lot lower than on 20 alloys.

Abt have also got hands on the VW Up, presented as a matching with the Beetle. The Up has been all round – except for the lowered – and like the Abarth just like a lot of fun.

Lumma are German tuning house in Porsches: their contribution to was the CLR 9S. Adding almost Audi front grills and wider all round, the CLR 9S also has a three-part lip at the rear to aid downforce. In their material, Lumma pay a lot of lip service to the of the Porsche brand, which explain the relatively subtle of this 911.

Their other offering was the CLR a BMW 650i ‘modified to perfection’. power, more sound, is the the BMW’s V8 has been tweaked up to 500bhp and torque increased to In a drop-top. Fancy hairstyles not go well with this

Techart have taken a bespoke aero approach for 911 Carrera: it’s all about for them. An optional new exhaust can also be fitted, along a choice of ultra-low profile alloy wheels. Particularly in colour, it’s a not a car that go unnoticed on the road.

AC Schnitzer’s premier in Geneva introduced the Sport and ACS3. Schnitzer a long history of modifying and BMWs, going right to running 1800 Tis in the 1960s and on to victories in Touring Cars 320s over the last

The ACS5 M5 was presented in this satin blue, but for Schnitzer as much about what’s the bonnet as any additional styling: the F10 has been pushed to 620hp.

The sixth-generation 3-series has been breathed on: AC Schnitzer’s F30 ACS3 includes a whole host of and aero upgrades to choose

German tuning company Motorsport turned up with a of styled offerings: let’s with the final example of the quartet at the Geneva show: the This is the least recognisable perhaps because of the high paint job and pointed nose The front splitter aims to GT racer levels of downforce, by the ground effect door and rear diffuser.

The Hawk offers a complete upgrade kit to your SLS, including the Powerdome. Who doesn’t need one of And a lot of carbon. Hawk isn’t the inspired name, but uprated and exhaust options are the more options on offer.

SUVs are off-limits for good reason, but have at least tried to the bulky Cayenne into that can fit under a regular bridge. Lowered and with panels to break up its imposing it has to be said that it still like a double-decker bus. But a fast double-decker bus.

there’s then the Range Evoque. I’m seeing an lot of these on the roads in London, and I that I like it a little too Hamann’s wide-body interpretation like it has the aerodynamic efficiency of a but there’s still something it… The two-tone aero bodykit away the fact there’s than the regular lump the bonnet.

As Alpina are to BMW, so Brabus are to A manufacturer in their own right, are perhaps best known for innocent Mercs and dipping in a vat of evil. Just look at brutal C Class. The Bullit 800 has a V12 bomb of an engine producing a thousand pound-feet of torque. limited to around 800 as they find a transmission capable of with those numbers. It has a top speed of 230mph. I think the has competition.

Next to it, the 700 Biturbo similar battlefield surgery on an an extra 100 horses and 200 pound-feet of have been thrown in for I think Brabus win here by margin. Awe-inspiring stuff.
