The new ex-works 500 E-class coupé is in itself not underpowered. With 388 PS and 530 Nm torque it’s the currently most powerful production model coupé that the company can offer its customers. However, those who like it a touch more dynamic can find what they want with the traditional refiner Kicherer in Stockach. Engineers, technicians and designers have taken on the E-Class derivative and accentuated it in all things sporty, technically and optically. By means of an software update and a sports exhaust system the performance of the V8 was increased by 42 PS and 20 Newtonmetres. So taht the 430 horsepower can freely run the V/max block was raised from 250 km/h to xxx km/h. In addition after the alteration the speedometer can reach speeds of up to 330 km/h.

In order to give the aerodynamics the final polish with regards to performance and looks a "Kicherer Performance Series Package" was employed. This set comprises a front lip, side skirts, a rear diffusor and special mirror casings. All components are made of top quality and ultra-light carbon. The same can also be said of the optionally available three-bladed sports grill.

At the rear both eye and ear can delight in every sense in a lovely exhaust system. On the one hand it is convincing with ist modern, almost rectangular tail pipe design and on the other hand it produces an exciting but not obtrusive sound.

The elegant side view of the coupé is perfected by the sportily filigree Kicherer RS-1 20 inch wheels, behind which you get hints of the braking power of the 6 and 6 piston high performance brake system. With its composite discs and modified flexible steel tubes this ensures a suitable negative acceleration.

The noble interior with its interior elements and entry strips in epoxy resin laqueur complements the outer appearance of the Kicherer E50 Coupé. Thus Kicherer has been able to create an almost perfect balance between dynamism and elegance.

Well, its good thing that it has an impressive power output though I think the material used here is not as elegant as the Mercedes. I love the detailing in its exterior!

Well, I have to say that the production version of Mercedes is far better than this car. BTW, why does it focus more in the back bumper? I bet it doesn’t look good in the front! However, the figure performance is quite impressive!

Now I know whats the problem you’ve based it on not so original style added up your ideas and as a result the car is absolutely rubbish.

An additional 50 miles per hour for it’s top speed is really amazing specially with only that much horsepower added to it. Anyhow, things that I really like to see with tuned cars are the interior. But this post doesn’t have any images so if you have some, please do post it as well.

Thanks.
