Big ‘Benz Power Boost.
As the automotive world shifts towards a leaner, greener future, engines are being downsized and turbochargers are finding their way under the hood, replacing big-displacement, high-cylinder engines. That doesn’t have to be a bad thing, especially if you like to get your vehicle tuned. After all, forced induction engines have greater potential for generating larger amounts of power compared to naturally aspirated engines with tuning. This is the case with the new M157 twin-turbocharged V-8 found in the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, and Posaidon took full advantage of it with their new RS 850 program.
The new Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG RS 850 takes the German super sedan to a new level of otherworldly performance and extracts an incredible amount of power out of the 5.5-liter V-8 engine. The German tuners installed a new pair of turbochargers and intercooler system to produce more boost pressure reliably while the intake paths have been optimized for better efficiency. The factory exhaust system was also swapped out for new turbo downpipes, racing sports catalytic converters, and valve flaps for optimized backpressure and adjustable sound control. Making everything work together is a full ECU tune.
The end result of the Posaidon Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG RS 850 is a total of 853 metric horsepower (842 hp) and 959 lb-ft. of torque. In order to handle all that power without having the drivetrain explode, Posaidon had to reinforce the transmission and rear axle. With all that power, the Posaidon Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG RS 850 is capable of breaking well into supercar territory and hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 214 mph (345 km/h).
As part of the program, the feature vehicle was equipped with new twin-spoke wheels and upgraded tires capable of handling the added speed potential.
The new Posaidon Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG RS 850 is currently available or customers can also opt for less powerful programs that range from 630 PS (621 hp) to 749 PS (739 hp).
