G-Power prepares the Mercedes-AMG E63 S to get 800 HP
There are many types of preparers. There are specialized companies such as ABT, which only touches cars of the Volkswagen Group and there are those who dare with several houses. That is the case of G-Power , which a few days ago presented its BMW M760Li with 700 hp, and now brings us the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S with 800 hp .
As declared by those responsible for G-Power, what they have done with the Mercedes saloon is to solve the "power deficit" that suffers the E 63 S . A statement that may seem something funny , if we consider that this car has 612 hp and 850 Nm of maximum torque. How far will these figures increase?
What the G-Power Mercedes-AMG E 63 S can do
Before answering this question, keep in mind that is not a simple reprogramming . The engineers of the G-Power house have replaced expensive parts of the 4.0-liter V8 engine. After doing this, the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC + gets 188 HP and 150 Nm extra. To achieve the impressive figures of 800 CV and 1,000 Nm of torque.
With these modifications, the E 63 S of G-Power manages to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and reach 300 km/h. A top speed somewhat less than what they got with the BMW M760Li, probably because the gearbox of the Mercedes is somewhat shorter in its longest gear.
Deepening the modifications of G-Power
To achieve these significant improvements, G-Power has profoundly modified the hardware and the software . The responsible for the electronic readjustment of the V8 is the software called Performance V3 . That, according to the house of preparations, increases performance while maintaining the engine protection functions and the official diagnostic capabilities of the brand.
Regarding the changes within the vain of the engine, the new turbochargers include optimized turbines . As a result, G-Power claims that the turbos "offer incomparably better performance than the standard components." Other notable changes are the downpipes stainless steel with catalytic converter, to increase the flow of combustion gases. An important step if you want to get more out of gas for the turbo to turn faster. Finally, G-Power has replaced the exhaust system with a more sporty stainless steel.
To top it all off, the prepared Mercedes you see in the photos has a 21-inch light-alloy wheels > Hurricane RR calls. As for the body, the E 63 S has not received very striking changes.
