Cardinal Tuning GmbH


#1

Quick Facts:

  • Cardinal Tuning GmbH is a tuning firm founded in 2001, it’s naming was originally Megawatt Tuning GmbH, later in 2010 when the founder had an intense interest of the design of the Angry Birds Red Bird (based on the Northern Cardinal), hence the name changed into Cardinal Tuning GmbH.

  • Don’t be fooled by its name of “Tuning”, the company not just channels its efforts into tuning various engines. Similar to Ruf, Saleen, or Brabus, Cardinal Tuning GmbH would also manufacture their own vehicles, particularly from many other companies unused vehicle bodies, and then add different fixtures to indicate the fact that Cardinal Tuning GmbH and donor companies such as Toyota, Nissan, are different.

  • The tuning products have a wide range of pricing, from mid-range price of $50K-60K, to the most extreme cases of >$200K!
