Sometimes, being on top isn’t enough, especially for this Bentley Bentayga, which has been thoroughly tinkered by German tuning firm DMC. In terms of the fusion of power and luxury in the SUV world, the highly premium Bentley Bentayga could be considered as the authority.

Aside from its luxurious and technology laden bespoke interior and its hegemonic exterior, the Bentley Bentayga deserves to be called the most powerful SUV thanks to its potent core -- a monstrous 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine.

This W12 engine can deliver up to 600 hp (447 kW) of output and up to 663 lb.-ft. of peak torque, allowing the Bentayga to sprint from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and eventually reach a top speed of 187 mph (300 km/h).

Many agree that the Huracan from Lamborghini has an exterior designed to show its aggressiveness. However for DMC this is not enough as the tuner is bringing to the table a new design pattern that can be installed as a wrap. This is not the first time DMC is modifying the Huracan as the company has already been well received for their rather flashy approach in putting in additional bits to the Huracan.

This time, DMC is making the appearance even fiercer to complement the aero kit. This is the kit that comes with a customized full lip spoiler with side flaps on the front, diffuser and large wing in the rear, and side skirts to address downforce. For the wing itself, it can be adjusted in any of the three modes which are Fun, GT Tracy day, or city cruising.

To make sure that they would function effectively, each mode was tested in the wind tunnel individually. Meanwhile, fitted to the body are the 20x8.5-inch wheels in the front and the 21x12-inch wheels in the rear. On the inside, DMC gives customers a wide range of customization choices like putting in components made of carbon fiber or wrapping in rare leather like Stingray and Ostrich. For those who are curious about what the design pattern really is, the name is CAIRO and surprisingly is matches with the customized aero parts.

The McLaren 12C (formerly known as the MP4-12C) has been on the market for a while now, as it was unveiled in September 2009 and went on sale in mid-2011. Back in March, McLaren launched the 650S Coupe and Spider, a vehicle that featured a front end inspired by the awesome P1 hypercar, while the rear end was “borrowed” from the 12C.

And the inevitable happened as McLaren announced the existing owners of the 12C that the company will cease production of 12C in light of the success of the 650S. Still, this isn’t the end o the 12C because Mclaren is offering the current owners a free Technology Upgrade program. Available from June, this program will offer a new Active Aero software for the Airbrake that will make it ‘sense’ different driving scenarios.

According to McLaren, the software will improve stability when lifting off the throttle or cresting a hill. Moreover, the program will include a DRS (Drag Reduction System) mode which lowers the wing when driving at high speeds in a straight line, in order to improve aerodynamics.

DMC is known for its tuning kits developed that upgrade Italian cars such as Lamborghini, but their latest masterpiece is out of this world. This is the car they designed if someone didn’t care about money. Priced at $2.5 million, the so-called Lamborghini Aventador Unico LP1200-4R Concept feature twin-turbochargers for the 6.5-liter V12 engine that increases its power to an impressive 1,200 hp (882 kW).

Still, depending on the pressure settings as well as on the type of fuel, the V12 engine delivers 1,500 hp (1,103). What’s really impressive is that DMC can push the engine to 2,000 hp (1,471) if the customer wants to. That amount of power can be obtained if the displacement of the engine is increased from 6.5 liter to 7.7-liters.

It appears that the Ferrari 458 Speciale what was unveiled back in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show made quite an impression and the news that the production of this vehicle is already sold out for this year convinced other carmakers to follow the same strategy. As a result, McLaren will offer an enhanced version of the MP4-12C that will deliver better on-road performance, exceeding that of the Ferrari 458 Speciale.

According to Autocar, McLaren declined to make any comment on this story, but an unknown source told the British magazine that the new vehicle will be based on the same carbonfibre Monocell as the 12C while the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine will be tuned to about 650 hp.

As expected, the new McLaren will have a slightly different design than the standard 12C and will take more styling influences from the range-topping McLaren P1 hybrid hypercar. Moreover, the interior will also be upgraded. Regarding the Ferrari 458 Speciale, this model is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine rated at 605 hp and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque.
