While it may cause a little heart burn for some to see a brand mess with perfection, this Mercedes-Benz E500 tuned by VATH offers just the right amount of sugar to sweeten the dose. With both performance and visual upgrades, VATH took the rear-wheel-drive car and proceeded to enhance its total engine output and give the mid-sized sedan a slightly more sporty feel. Beginning with the V8 4.7-liter turbocharged gas engine, VATH proceeded to bump its output from 408 HP and 443 lb-ft of torque to a total of 550 HP and a massive 613 lb-ft and paired that with a set of quad stainless steel exhaust pipes. All together, drivers can now enjoy a top speed of 186mph, which should be more than enough to enjoy the Autobahn. Visually, VATH also tacked on a carbon fiber rear diffuser, fins, and side skirts as well as custom dampers and brakes that work with the brand's own 20-inch forged alloy wheels. For finishing touches, VATH added a carbon trunk spoiler lip, aluminum pedals, a new steering wheel, and carbon fiber and Alcantara trim.
