The paint isn’t even dry on the freshly introduced all new generation E Class executive sedan and already customers willing to go the extra mile can have the Lorinser take.
The all-new W213 generation of the Mercedes E Class has reached dealerships not long ago – complete with its looks of a bigger C Class or a smaller S Class, it just depends on why angle you approach it. Waiblingen, Germany-based tuner Lorinser has decided to have a go at the limousine and improve its looks with a new bodykit. In case you fear the aftermarket company might ruin the lines, after looking at the pictures also take into account the tuning house has been messing with Mercedes cars since way back in the 1930s. The company’s E Class kit has a front splitter, rear bumper finisher with aero flicks and tailpipe housings, rocker panel skirt, and rear wing, all of them in glorious carbon fiber.
Lorinser says everything has to do with aerodynamic efficiency, though we suspect the door mirror caps and tailpipes are there just for show. Anyways, for the looks department we can also tick the new, one-piece, forged RS11 alloy wheel, with 255/30ZR21 front and 295/25ZR21 tires at the rear. There’s also a suspension lowering kit and inside there are things such as aluminum pedal finishers, floor mats and illuminated door sills. In case of the E350d and AMG 343, Lorinser will also hook the E Class to a new engine management system. For the 3.0-liter, V6 turbo diesel engine the specs go up to 296 horsepower (221 kilowatts) and 513 pound-feet (695 Newton meters). The twin-turbo, 3.0-liter, V6 in the E43 meanwhile gets 434 hp (324 kW) and 443 lb/ft (600 Nm) of torque.
