Essen Motorshow 2016: Wider is better?

TrackandTuner.com visited the 2016 Essen Motorshow. This car show is filled with supercars and tuner cars. It also has an entire hall for classic cars which you may have seen in part one, classic car bubble?

In this part we first finish one of the big area's filled with some car manufacturers like Ford, Peugeot and BMW. BMW showed of their new BMW M performance products, like their new spoiler. I must say this rear spoiler is looking awesome, complete carbon fibers wing with M colors. However this wing is over 3000 EUR, is it worth it? Well it looked brilliant. 

Next up was the huge Bentley Bentayga from startech. Startech is owned by BRABUS therefore quality is spot on. We loved the little detail of the massive brakes in the colors of the union jack.

We have also seen a big collection of the best tuner part during this years show. As seen the eventuri carbon fiber intake by carbonfiberdynamics, the awesome Zacoe Lamborghini Huracan and the insane wide body kits from LB-performance all the way from Japan. 

It seems the the wider is better these days. We have had some discussions if we like this trend. We see Lamborghini Aventadors, Huracans and even a Ferrari 458 italia being fitted with a massive wide body kits and then slammed to the ground. Yes it is unique, that I will applaud. There are many stock cars, so doing something different is great, but these cars are sportscars or even hypercars that belong on the track or are set up for performance. Therefore these modifications competely make these cars irrelevant for the track and maybe even for road use. 

I am hopefully not the only one who does not like these air bagged cars, slammed on the ground. This looks horrible and a car should be driveable. Yes lowering your car is great but slamming your car on the ground isn't to our liking. What do you think?

We do like the RWB Porsche 993 thought, it seems like this car could perform on the street without much trouble.

Fortunetely their are some great examples of making a car better and fast insteed of wider and lower. We liked the BMW M4 by Simon Motorsports which look track focussed and ready for the challenge. We also like the body kit by Piecha for the new Mercedes AMG GT, making it more aggressive. 

Our favorige combination thought was the BMW M3 Evo II with it's racing brother side by side.

Please let us know what you think about these wide body slammed cars and what is your favorite car from our gallery?
