German tuner VATH has decided to spice up the Mercedes-Benz V-Class by developing a minor aftermarket package.

The V-Class is not exactly what we would call tuning material, but nevertheless the guys from VATH have worked on a V250 CDI version and applied their chip tuning know-how to boost output to 225 PS (165 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque, up from the series 190 PS & 440 Nm. The additional oomph can be had for €1,011.50 while for an extra €566.20 you can add a set of lowering springs which bring the people carrier closer to the road by 25 mm.

VATH has also developed a set of side running boards (€629) to ease access inside the cabin along with a custom set of 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 265/30 R20 tires available as a full set for €2,975.
