German tuner pumps the ML 63 AMG up to 585 hp and 690 Nm of torque while also adding a high-performance brake system and an adjustable sport suspension that can lower the SUV up to 40 mm.

The ML 63 AMG by VÄTH Automobiltechnik is certainly one of the most powerful SUVs ever to be put on the road - with the VÄTH 6.3 liter engine doling out 585 hp and 690 Nm of torque.

But how does VÄTH dare to label this AMG engine its own? Well, the German tuner has substituted its own specially forged pistons, enlarged the counter-sunk channels on the cylinder heads, and added its own large intake and exhaust valves, sports camshaft and valve springs. After all that, the ECU tuning they do seems the least of it.

Performance figures on the VÄTH ML 63 AMG come to 4.5 seconds for the 0 to 100 km/h sprint and a top speed of 300 km/h.

Total cost for the engine tuning, including installation, comes to 19,635 euros.

Also included in the tuning kit are 22-inch, 3-spoke light alloy wheels with Dunlop performance tires. A set of those will set you back 8,568 euros.

A 4,641 euro VÄTH high-performance braking system can also be had, as well as an adjustable sport suspension with lowering up to 40 mm for 1,952 euros.
