VATH upgrades the facelifted Mercedes E-Class image

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift, in the E500 version, has been upgraded recently by VATH.

According to the tuning company, the vehicle has received the new 20-inch forged wheels which have been wrapped in 255/30 and 295/25 tires, front to rear. The tuner is allowing customers to order the custom dampers, from 1,166 euros, along with the custom brakes on the front axle, with 390 mm discs and 6-piston calipers, for another 5,355 euros. The carbon fiber trunk spoiler lip is also available for the car and it will be setting you back for 1,761 euros. For some extra cash, customers will also be able to get the stainless steel exhaust system, with quad oval pipes, for 4,629 euros, while the carbon fiber rear diffuser with fins and underbody extension can be yours from 2,011 euros.

The most important part of the model is found under its hood where the 4.7 liter turbochaged gasoline engine is now able to produce a total output of 550 HP (404 kW) and it has an impressive peak torque of 830 Nm (613 lb-ft). This is significantly more than the standard 408 HP (300 k)W and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque but it doesn’t come cheap either as it is available at 10,591 euros. Thanks to the extra oomph, the sedan can now reach a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). The cabin is getting Alcantara headlining, carbon fiber trim, aluminum pedals and a sportier steering wheel but no photos have been released.
