Posaidon GT RS 700 Unveiled with 700HP

Author:

There's no doubt that Merecedes-Benz knocked it out of the park with the launch of their AMG GT3. But if the innovation stopped there, that wouldn't be fun, now would it? While maintaining the car's classic sportscar proportions was key to their rework, the heart of the AMG GT is, of course, its 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 engine producing 462HP. However, for Posaidon, these figures were just a starting point, using their technology to raise the maximum output to a full 700HP with their Posaidon GT RS variant. To generate this level of power and torque Posaidon applied its in-house turbocharger upgrade and increases the intercooler capacity. A bespoke exhaust system featuring free-flow motorsport grade catalytic converters also connect directly to the revised turbochargers helps to lower backpressure and increase performance. ECU mapping for the engine and gearbox was also carefully calibrated on both the chassis dynamometer and the street. Combined, the Posaidon GT RS can now hit 62mph in just 3.2 seconds and max out at 349 km/h. As a nice added feature, Posaidon also offers their own radar speed trap warning system integrated into the car's nav system, which is tucked within a yellow and carbon fiber-adorned interior to match the outside. That's a nice touch. Watch it on the dyno hitting these figures and finish the preview below.
