New Lingenfelter, DTM’s 2009 Cars


Today’s top story comes from Lingenfelter who have announced a new range of upgrades for the Camaro SS. The top model comes with twin turbochagers and and a built-up LS7 V8 from the Corvette Z06. Hopefully at least one brave customer will take the plunge and order one.

The last remaining series to start in 2009 is the DTM in Germany. Only Audi & AMG are in the series making it very hotly contested. Ralf Schumacher describes it as ”the best touring car series in the world. Here we fight hard for every metre and every tenth of a second.” Today we have the 2009 Audi A4 DTM R14 plus and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG DTM that will debut at the first race in 10 days at Hockenheim.

Next we have an odd, but inspiring rat rod from Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth called the Orbitron. It was recently restored by Galpin Auto Sports and debuted at the 2009 Amelia Island Concours. Another car to recently surface was the Jaguar XKR-S GT3 at last weekend’s Silverstone event.
