The 2016 Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner and many automakers and aftermarket companies are in the final preparations for their respective displays at the world’s biggest auto show. Russian tuner Topcar has already announced its attendance in Geneva and its plan to bring three models to the show. Two of these models, the Porsche 991 Turbo S Stinger GTR and Porsche Cayenne Vantage, are the latest iterations in a long line of programs bearing the Stinger and Vantage names. The other one, the Mercedes GLE Coupe Inferno, is new to the family and will make its official debut in Geneva.
Like most of its programs, TopCar enhanced the GLE Coupe with a systematic body kit comprised of close to 20 unique components. That’s old hat for a company known to build some pretty exotic kits in the past. But this one’s different, partly because it’s the first kit TopCar has built for the GLE Coupe. The company has made no such announcements on any performance upgrade, but if its history of programs are any indication, expect one to be installed into the GLE Coupe’s engine, likely the more powerful 3.0-liter V-6. I don’t foresee any surprises coming out of TopCar as far as the engine mods are concerned, at least not to the extent of what fellow Mercedes tuner Brabus did when it presented its own GLE program – the Brabus 850 – at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
In any event, we’re going to learn more about TopCar’s Inferno program when it hits the showcase floor at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. In the meantime, check out what it did with all those aerodynamic upgrades.
