The tuning company Posaidon promises more than 1,000 hp for the large Mercedes Coupé.
The Posaidon S 63, valued at US $ 36,250, has powerful ball-bearing turbochargers, a sports air filter, and tuned exhaust pipes with sports catalysts. Add customized transmission and powertrain controllers to deliver a rapid 880 horsepower and 885 lb-ft. According to Posaidon, this takes the 2.2-ton coupe to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Equipped with the appropriate speed tires, this crazy S reaches a top speed of 220 miles per hour and comes with full type approval in Germany.
Posaidon will relieve you of $ 63,000 to get an additional tenth of a second out of that 0-60 time. With stage two conversion. This requires a little extra work on the AMG lump’s cylinder head connections and some valve seat tricks. The tuner also adds a water-methanol injection system as well as an additional tank if required. The biturbo V8 of the S 63 sees that on 940 hp and 945 lb-ft.
Enough now? Not for Posaidon, it seems. The company has already confirmed a 1,000 horse version and is telling us to watch this area for details. We wait for it with bated breath.
If 30 grand out of 60 seem too rich to you, we have good news for you. Posaidon is offering a 700 hp software-only tuning kit for the four-liter twin-turbo V8 for just $ 5,000. This means that your AMG S 63 4Matic Coupé reaches a speed of 100 km / h in 3.2 seconds. And a top speed of 295 mph. That seems to be reasonable value for money.
Posaidon offers its tuning packages for all M177 biturbo V8 AMGs as well as for the M178 V8 of the GT models.
