Although it is a very old car, I can’t deny that I really love the look of this special car, called Orca SC7. Orca uses super-light materials to reduce the weight of this supercar as much as possible. The result is obvious, SC7 weights just 850 kg.
Its engine produces 738 ft lbs at 4200 rpm torque and outputs 850 horsepower, which sets power to weight ratio to 1 bhp:1 kg. The production of this Swiss supercar is limited to only 7 automobiles.
The ECS RA4 B5/B6 A4 Complete Clutch Kit is built around the well known and powerful OE RS4 clutch disc and pressure plate designed to handle the stock 380 daily driven horsepower of the European RS4. A direct bolt up to the stock 1.8T crank is made possible by the ECS Tuning custom designed lightweight steel flywheel. Increasing the disc diameter to 240mm over the stock diameter of just 228mm and reducing the combined rotational mass of the flywheel disc and pressure plate increases performance.
ECS Stage I RA4 clutch kit does NOT include a RS4 clutch, but rather an OE S4 clutch & pressure plate. ECS has put together this clutch kit for customers looking to upgrade their clutch kit to a unit that was designed to hold 100 more HP than their stock clutch & still retain almost stock like clutch feel. This kit will easily handle mild turbo upgrades & yet will not have the somewhat heavy pedal feel that the OE RS4 clutch kit delivers.
You can find all details on ECS tuning.
Top Secret has been making the show rounds with its twin turbo V12 Supra for the past year, but it’s finally putting its money where its mouth is and going for a top speed of 400 km/h (248 mph) later this year in Italy. Breaching 200 km/h hasn’t been an issue since the boosted 6.0-liter V12 is supposedly pushing out over 1,000 hp.

The latest victim is the hallowed tarmac of the Nurburgring circuit in Germany, leveraged by Vauxhall for the new Astra VXR Nurburgring Edition. It is described by Vauxhall as “mechanically similar” to the boggo VXR.
Just as the ‘Ring Edition’s 237bhp blown four-pot is identical to the standard VXR, its chassis settings have also been left untouched.
