THE TAIL OF A TRIO OF HORSES

mustang1

A racetrack, a pair of modified Ford Mustang V8s (plus a standard one), a blonde and a brunette. And an American flag - which as it turns out was made in China. Watch the horses in action here: https://youtu.be/QQgp7SfRXPI


That then was the backdrop to a combined project by RGMotorsport’s engineering and marketing teams to validate their aftermarket offerings on Ford’s sporty coupe, a car which remains “Most Wanted”. And it isn’t hard to see why: it looks the part, sounds the part and goes pretty ‘good’ (as the Americans like to say) too.

RGMOTORSPORT WHIPPLES THE MUSTANG INTO SHAPE

blgMustang 5.0 V8 002

The latest Ford Mustang has cemented its reputation as an iconic performer since its local introduction a year ago, and in that time, has also become a firm favourite for go-faster upgrades.

While they haven’t been around as long as the Mustang nameplate, RGMotorsport has been making quick cars quicker for a quarter-century - and has an impressive list of successful conversions to their name.

 FASTEST VW GOLF 7R AT 5500 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL IN SA

RGM 7R 430

No pain no gain…and we agree!


RGMotorsport’s research and development team has burnt the midnight oil, scoured the planet for ideas and information, and experimented, tuned, and tweaked for literally dozens of hours on our all-wheel-drive dynamometer to turn our Golf7 R into a reliable, street-legal, giant-killing rocketship.

YOU’VE HEARD OF FORMULA ONE, BUT HAVE YOU HEARD OF FORMULA E, ASKS ADRIAN BURFORD

Tesla

Hybrid race cars have been around for the best part of a decade, and as road cars for more than twice as long. The Prius population runs into millions and they’re mainstream. Even all-electric cars like the Nissan Leaf, BMW i3 and the various Tesla models are no longer the stuff of fantasy. Still, if you’re the wrong side of 50, the all-electric race car remains something unusual.


The first experience of driving an electric car - in my case a Nissan Leaf – is somewhat disconcerting. You press start, and exactly nothing happens (though there are some noises reminiscent of a laptop booting up). The Leaf has been available locally for a couple of years and (pardon the pun) is now in the Autumn of its lifespan and was first introduced in 2010. Nevertheless, for a while it was the only all-electric car on the local market, until the BMW i3 arrived.

RGMOTORSPORT'S GOLF7 R GOES TO HILL AND BACK

7R Simola 001


We came, we saw, we conquered. An RGMotorsport Golf7 R, producing around 330kW on the wheels, reigned supreme in class A2 at the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb, seeing off its all-wheel-drive, forced-induction rivals to add some more silverware to the tuner’s trophy cabinet.


Developed over the course of a number of months are using their extensive experience of optimising and enhancing the VAG 888EA powerplant for road and track, the Golf - piloted by Jacques “The Stiglet” Joubert - blazed up the hill in just 46.5 seconds in his final run.

JEEP PENTASTAR V6 – NOW WITH FIVE-STAR PERFORMANCE!

Pentastar V6 003

Can you get an upgrade on an upgrade? 
Yes you can, and in a celebration of the arrival of weather more suited to the great outdoors, we came up with a solution to get Jeep owners where they’re going with a dash more speed: in a further development of our existing upgrade to the Wrangler’s Pentastar powerplant, we’ve upped power and torque to a tyre-smoking, tarmac-shredding 365kW and 551Nm.

THE GOLF7 GTI: UNTAMED BY RGMOTORSPORT

GTI Untamed 001

It isn’t who you know, it’s what you know, that counts. At least that’s the way it works in the tuning world.


And when it comes to the VAG EA888 powerplant nestled under the bonnet of the Golf GTI there are few more experienced tuners than RGMotorsport. Fact: since 2009 they’ve tuned all Graeme Nathan’s Volkswagens, winning six national Production Car championships in the process.

A BAKKIE DESIGNED FOR THE FAST LANE...OF THE AUTOBAHN

Hilux SC 001

RGMotorsport has signed off what is quite possibly the fastest double cab bakkie in Africa - a 327kW/545Nm super-truck capable of demolishing the 0 – 100 km/h sprint in 7.1 seconds at the reef, en route to maxing out at 227 km/h.

It could also be the first eighth-generation Hilux 4.0-litre V6 to be supercharged on the continent but it certainly isn’t the first Big Six Toyota to benefit from RGMotorsport’s tuning and modifying acumen. The Strydom Park-based business has installed a similar forced induction package on well over 100 of these engines; and V6 FJ Cruisers, Prados, Fortuners, Land Cruisers and Hiluxes have all been through the workshop.

POWER! AS JEREMY CLARKSON IS FOND OF SHOUTING…. BUT HE SHOULD BE SHOUTING “TORQUE!

M6 F12


Torque is the starting point of it all and an engine’s capability to turn the up/down motion of a piston into the rotating motion of a crankshaft is what it is all about. This isn’t a story about dynos, but what a dynamometer does is calculate power from actual torque. It is a machine that measures the ability of the car’s wheels to rotate a roller of a known weight up to given speed in a period of time. Power is obtained from this via a calculation, with the torque figure playing an important part…
