This Mercedes-Benz E500 Cabriolet By Vath Will Make You Forget About The New S-Class

/ Comments

It's not as luxurious, but it's much faster.

Mercedes-Benz may have just revealed its new S-Class Cabriolet, but Vath doesn't seem to care. The tuning company has just released its rendition of the Mercedes-Benz E500 Cabriolet. Vath went straight after the E550's V8 engine and upgraded it with a new air cooling system, electronic modifications and a rear silencer for a total output of 550 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque. While the tuning company upped the power, it also went to work on giving the cabriolet a more intimidating look.

Vath fitted the E500 Cabriolet with a set of lowering springs, which have dropped the ride height by 30 mm for improved handling and a better look. To accommodate for the extra power, Vath has also fit the convertible with a new braking system that has six-piston front calipers and 15-inch brake discs. Steel braided brake lines rounds out the performance updates on the vehicle. Visually, the E550 Cabriolet gets a new front splitter, trunk lip spoiler and rear diffuser, as well as 20-inch wheels. Vath has done a fine job turning the pedestrian convertible into a monstrous vehicle.
