Mercedes V50S by VÄTH

Friday, October 26, 2012

VÄTH has introduced an updated V50S tuning program for the Mercedes E500 (aka E550). Starting with the exterior, the model has been equipped with a carbon fiber body kit that includes a front spoiler, a revised grille, a rear diffuser and a trunk-mounted spoiler. There's also a retuned suspension module and 20-inch alloy wheels. To spruce up the cabin, the company offers premium leather upholstery, a sport steering wheel, carbon fiber / wood trim and a speedometer that tops out at 360 km/h (224 mph). For added performance, the firm installed an optimized ECU and a charge air cooling system. Thanks to these modifications, the twin-turbo 4.6-liter V8 engine develops 520 PS (382 kW / 513 hp) and 810 Nm (597 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). The modifications, on this particular model, cost €32,250 ($40,400 / £25,540) - excluding VAT.
