German tuning company, Prior Design , has gone to great lengths with their program for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe . For their latest work, the German aftermarket company has produced a complete package of upgrades for the E-Class Coupe, one that improves the luxury sports car’s overall profile, as well as its performance capabilities.
Among the aerodynamic goodies given to the E-Class Coupe by Prior Design include new bumpers on both ends of the car, revised side skirts, a new rear diffuser, a lowered suspension by about 35 mm, and a set of 20" wheels available in such colors as matte black, gloss black, gold, or silver. As an added option, Prior Design is also offering a roof spoiler for the car.
As far as the performance upgrades, both the E350 Coupe and the E550 Coupe were given ECU remaps, as well as new sport exhaust systems. These changes improved the car’s numbers by 74 horsepower, jumping the E350’s 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine from 268 horsepower to 343 horsepower and the E550’s 5.5-liter DOHC V8 engine from 382 horsepower to 457 horsepower.
Prior Design’s whole gamut of improvements on the E-Class Coupe fits to exactly what we want to see from a tuning company: not too audacious, but enough to give it a fresh and more powerful look.
