If you thought the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG was a top performer, well... you were right. It is. But everything's got room for improvement, and Väth Automobiltechnik has made that room for the Benz supersled with a similar V63RS package as it fitted to its C-Class-based offering.
Starting under the hood, Väth bored out the cylinders, fitted new pistons, valves, cam shafts, intake and tweaked the ECU for an extra 87 horsepower, bringing the total up to 605. The result? 0-100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in a scant 4.1 seconds, and a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph).
The tuning house has also fitted a body kit complete with new grille, spoilers front and rear and a carbon fiber diffuser, 20-inch modular rims, a suspension dropped by 30 millimeters, and huge 390mm brake discs gripped by eight-piston calipers up front. Nice work if you can get it, but you'll need plenty of cash on hand if you do. Details in the press release after the jump.
