When it comes to high performance factory tuned machines like the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG, there isn’t much in the way of improvements that the manufacturer hasn’t already included. However as is the word of tuning where there is never such thing as enough, the aftermarket manufacturer VATH Automobiltechnik has taken the fire breathing four door super sport sedan and turned it into a flame spitting power house with even more aggressive bodywork then before.
The exterior package for the top of the line E-Class includes a few down force inducing items like a carbon fiber front lip, subtle rear spoiler on the trunk lid and even more carbon fiber for the diffuser. At the same time rolling stock is upgraded to a set of 20 inch three piece forged alloys that hug the wheel wells thanks to a new airmatic suspension. As far as power is concerned, VATH has reworked the hand built 6.2 Liter V8 with an assortment of race proven parts in order to bump the car’s output up to 605 HP and 509 lb-ft of torque, as a result the VATH tuned E63 can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.1 seconds and reach a 211 MPH top speed.
Press release after the jump.
After high-performance cure at VATH Automobiltechnik, the new E-Class E63 AMG is exactly the right choice for those who like adrenaline rush. This E-Class vehicle is clearly a winner type – smart and spry, which becomes instantly obvious looking at huge 20” forged three-part alloy rims (8,211.00 Euro for a set) with individually designed 245/30-20 or 285/25-20 high performance tyres and with sportive exterior carbon package.
Thanks to the new VATH grill for Euro 797.00 without the Mercedes star the face of the new E-Class has got a sportive outfit, but still keeps its face.
The powerful silhouette with the wedgelike rising side line and the muscular car tail is furthermore supported by a boot spoiler lip for Euro 333.00 and a carbon-diffuser for Euro 1,773.00. The distinctively arrow-shaped front bumper has become still more sportive now thanks to the carbon front apron suspension for Euro 1,416.00. The VATH optics package warrants for the perfect harmony of dynamics and sportiveness.
As a matter of tradition, VATH Automobiltechnik guarantees also a high level of road safety. The road holding capacity has been improved by VATH by lowering the airmatics by about 30 mm (Euro 821.00).

After engine retrofitting made by VATH for 19.635,00 Euro, the AMG V8 drive unit provides for an acceleration of 4,1 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h.

In addition, the crank drive has been improved, the cylinder head channels have been enlarged by milling and engine software has been updated.
