Miami-based tuning company MC Customs is introducing an aftermarket package developed for the Mercedes-Benz S550.

They teamed up with Japanese tuner Wald International who was in charge of providing the custom body kit which has changed the look of this S550 thanks to a bespoke front grille, bigger intakes for the front bumper while behind the front wheels are sizeable gills. Also noticeable are the enlarged side skirts, tinted taillights, reshaped rear bumper with additional vents, red brake calipers and a spoiler lip. All the windows have been tined while the stock wheels were replaced with a set of Savini rims wrapped around in low-profile tires.

There aren't any changes under the hood so this particular S-Class continues to pack V8 4.7-liter bi-turbo engine developing 449 bhp (335 kW) between 5,250 rpm and 5,550 rpm and a peak torque of 516 lb-ft (699 Nm) available in the 1,800 - 3,500 rpm range. Output is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission granting the limousine with a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 4.8 seconds.
