Lorinser has introduced at the Essen Motor Show a heavily modified Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG 4MATIC.
The tuner is bridging the gap between the C450 and the C63 by infusing more power in the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. After applying its expertise, the motor was upgraded from 367 PS (267 kW) and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) to 435 PS (320 kW) and 620 Nm (458 lb-ft) of torque.
The added punch costs €1,541 and has slashed 0.3 seconds from the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) task which now takes just 4.6 seconds. Lorinser didn’t fiddle around with the electronic top speed limiter, so the car still tops out at 155 mph (250 km/h).
The “C50” package also includes 19-inch wheels with 225/40 R19 front and 255/35 R19 rear Continental SportContact6 tires. You can upgrade to a 20-inch set priced at €10,424 that comes with 245/30 R20 front and 265/30 R20 rubbers from the same provider. The new shoes can be matched with a suspension lowering kit that brings the car closer to the pavement by 30 mm.
The custom body kit available for €7,985 includes brand new front and rear bumpers, side mirror trims, rear deck lid spoiler, and a sports exhaust rear muffler. At an additional cost, Lorinser can also customize the interior cabin with aluminum pedals, illuminated door sills, and floor mats with the tuner’s logo.
