Kicherer has unveiled the new E 50 Coupe.

Based on the Mercedes E500, the car features a revised ECU module and a sports exhaust system. It enables the 5.5-liter V8 to produce 430 PS (316 kW / 424 hp) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 42 PS (31 kW / 41 hp) and 20 Nm (15 lb-ft). While Kicherer declined to release performance data, they stated the E 50 can hit a top speed in excess of 250 km/h (155 mph).

In terms of styling, the E 50 boasts a carbon fiber ‘Kicherer Performance Series' package. It includes a front lip spoiler, aggressive side skirts, a rear diffuser, and special mirror casings (a three-blade sports grille is optional). Elsewhere, the company added 20-inch RS-1 wheels and a high performance brake system (with six piston calipers and carbon composite discs).
