Huracan Performante dyno run

We Christen our dyno cell with a mighty, V10 Lamborghini!

Having completed the construction of our new dyno facility, we thought we should make some noise about it – and what better to do it, than with a Huracan Performante at full chat!

This unique vehicle belongs to a good customer of ours aka “Smurf Perf” who was keen to see and hear what it could do on our Maha set up.
Only one way to find out!

Having adjusted the rollers to the dimensions of the car and then taken great care to strap it down, we began the dyno run. 

Although most of the power goes to the rear wheels, the fronts are still driven, so our 4WD MSR500 dyno was the perfect tool for the job. Of course for front or rear-wheel drive vehicles, we simply use one set of rollers. 

Flick the fighter jet style starter button cover open, prod the button and the 5.2-litre V10 bursts into life. Even at idle, this Huracan sounds incredible, so we’re all excited to experience it doing a sixth-gear pull.

As the revs rise, dyno operator Ricky bangs through the gears using the large paddle shifters. The sound is incredible – a deep, metallic howl, punctuated by a sharp “crack” during gear shifts. Once he hits sixth, Ricky backs off the throttle and two blue flames shoot out from the tailpipes – much to the delight of everyone watching from the viewing window. Then, as he bangs down the gears, there’s a crescendo of pops and bangs from the exhaust.

In the dyno cell, this thing sounds like an old-school V10 Formula One car – it’s a truly earth shattering noise – and without doubt one of the best sounding engines you can buy today. 

Our Maha MSR500 dyno cell is available now for power runs and diagnostics, as well as for commercial development work. Click HERE to contact us.

Our dyno facility is go!

State of the art Maha MSR500 4WD dyno cell

Following six months of hard work, our state of the art dyno cell is now fully operational. From the outset, our aim was to produce something to be proud of – a facility that would compete with the very best in the world. We’re very pleased to say that we have surpassed our original goal.

At the heart of our bespoke, acoustic dyno cell is a Maha MSR500 four-wheel drive dynamometer. Widely regarded as one of the best setups available, it will allow us to test almost any vehicle and deliver accurate results time after time.

But we didn’t just want a “rolling road”. It had to be a bespoke cell that would allow us to test vehicles safely and (relatively) quietly. This meant investing in a fully acoustic structure.

With an industry leading cooling system including highly efficient ventilation, a huge 75-inch TV to display the vital data and cool recessed LED lighting, plus large window for viewing, we think this set up is second to none.

If you’d like to book a power run or speak to us about dyno development work, please get in touch on 01793 278069.

Look out for our next blog post showing behind the scenes of the dyno cell build.

We check out Autosport 2020

If you’re a motorsport fan, then Autosport has to be on your list of shows to visit. From the latest F1 cars, through to BTCC, rallying, Time Attack – you name it, there’s something for everyone. But away from the motorsport stars, the Performance Car Show was jam packed with supercars. Although many won’t be to everyone’s taste!

The trend for retina-ripping wraps, aggressive bodykits and money-no-object upgrades shows no sign of slowing and for those who like to show what they’ve got, then this was the place to be.

The Liberty Walk stand had a mix of supercars and SUVs, all boasting excotic bodykits, from a Mercedes-AMG G63 and a Lamborghini Urus, to an Aventador and BMW i8 – they were guaranteed crowd pullers.

On the Kream Developments stand, the centrepiece was a Bugatti Veyron next to a Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6 finished in matching wraps.

The monstrous £370k 6×6 Merc is one of the rarest vehicles you’ll ever see and dwarfed the 1001bhp, million-pound hypercar

Several Huracans including Performantes, and Spyders were dotted around the place, including one with a bonnet design embracing the mindset ‘you can’t take it with you’. We also spotted a Syvecs sticker on the front splitter, so would hazard a guess that this has been highly tuned, quite possibly turbocharged.

As an official UK dealer for these highly impressive standalone management systems, we can supply, install and setup the full Syvecs range, including the Huracan and Gen 2 R8, plus the brand new setup for the McLaren MP4, 570, 650S and 675LT, which we’re really excited about.

YouTube sensation, Yianimize was showing off his Aventador in its latest mean satin-black finish. We think it certainly looks better than the previous shiny wrap!

We also spotted a couple of rare Aventador SVJs, as well as a plethora of other exotica on the Cannonball stand, including a McLaren Senna which looked plain evil in black.

One car that stood out was a slightly small looking Veyron. On closer inspection we discovered that underneath it was an Audi R8, with the interior in particular giving it away. It may have lacked the 1001bhp quad turbo punch of a genuine Veyron, but it still had decent firepower thanks to the twin turbocharged 4.2 V8.

Away from the crazy supercars, the Autosport halls showcased some genuine racing cars, including a mean looking Bentley on the Eibach stand, plus numerous F1, BTCC, DTM and other machines.

Another car that caught our eye was this Mercedes-AMG C63. With the bonnet removed we could see the supercharger installation, which as Mercedes-AMG specialists, certainly got our attention. We can carry out full dealer-level servicing, which will not affect your warranty – but can save up to 40% over main dealer prices. Click HERE to contact us today for a quote for your Mercedes-AMG.
