For mercenary driver to the criminal element, Frank Martin, having traded his trademark Bimmer for an Audi A8 W12 in Luc Besson's upcoming "The Transporter 2," fuel costs are likely less of a concern than heat-seeking RPGs. But if they were, one trip to Germany could put him behind the wheel of an A8 4.2 TDI, with a JE Design tuning package, before the next sequel starts shooting — and he wouldn't have to downscale performance. JE's package includes a power boost to 390 bhp for the new 4.2 TDI V8, plus an aerodynamic body kit, chrome-plated four-pipe stainless steel rear silencer system, modification to suspension electronics to lowering the car by around 30 mm, 19-inch wheels — all leading up to a maximum speed of 177 mph. That — plus those driving skills — should be enough to outrun, uh, everybody.
