The German tuner, Vath, is well-known for the tuning kits they have provided for Mercedes’ AMG models , but now, the tuning firm has unveiled a new tuning package for the Mercedes C250 with both performance and styling upgrades. It’s no E63 AMG , but this tuning kit does what it needs to for the C250. Thanks to a V25 tuning kit, the engine’s power has been increased to 255 HP and 370 Nm torque. If you want a little more power than there is always the option of adding another charged air cooler and a sport exhaust system that can take the power up to 270 HP. The result is a top speed of 161 mph.
Next to the engine upgrades, the C250 has also received upgrades that will also improve the sedan’s aerodynamics. These additions include a new bonnet, front spoiler lip, a rear diffuser, and a trunk spoiler all made of carbon fiber. The exterior of the car is finished with a set of 19" alloy wheels.
The package was completed once the tuner added an adjusted brake system with 360 mm braking discs on the front and 320 mm braking discs at the back. The interior also received carbon inserts in combination with an Alcantara roof interior lining.
Press release after the jump.
“Good optimising” has been the motto of the company VÄTH near the town of Aschaffenburg for more than three centuries. With the tuning kit V25 (for about 1 200 Euros) the performance of the original 204 HP with an unchanged hub room size of 1 796 cm³ has been increased using motor technology to 255 HP (188 kW) and 370 Nm torque. This translates to a new maximum speed of 260km/h, which should in no way be underestimated.
In combination with the VÄTH charged air cooler (€1 118.60 ) and the VÄTH sports exhaust system (€2 011.10), the car can even reach 270 HP!
In addition to the motor-technical improvements, the external appearanceof the C-class is part of the obligatory program at VÄTH:
The C class presented here has been upgraded with special modifications to the coveted C63 AMG optic and tuned aerodynamically as well as visually with the VÄTH Carbon Motor bonnet (€4 641), the Carbon Front Spoiler Lip (€1 416.10) as well as through a Rear Diffsor (€1 773.10) made from carbon andTrunk Spoiler (€333.20).
Car lowering and a great set of wheels perfect the sporty silhouette.
Speaking of wheels: These are weight-optimised tailored rims 8.5x19 inches in size at the front and 9.5x19 inches at the bank, covered with 235/35ZR19 and 265/30ZR19: this costs around 4 046 Euros. The brake system has been adjusted to the new additions to be able to bring the vehicle to a stop much in much less time: 360 mm braking discs with 6 piston fixed gauges at the front and 320 mm braking discs with 4 piston fixed gauges at the back do their job reliably under any circumstances (complete for €5 355).
A complete running gear worthy of a racecourse has also been built in and has height and strength adjustible buffers as well as progressively harmonised springs so that the car drives comfortably on the one hand but still extremely precisely on the road.
Carbon can again be found on the interior, this time in combination with an Alcantara roof interior lining (€980.00).
The bottom line is not exhorbitant sums, but a result that can be seen absolutely anywhere.
