It’s not as luxurious, but it’s much faster.
Mercedes-Benz may have just revealed its new S-ClassCabriolet, but Vath doesn’t seem to care. The tuning company has just released itsrendition of the Mercedes-Benz E500 Cabriolet. Vath went straight after the E550’s V8 engine and upgraded it with a newair cooling system, electronic modifications and a rear silencer for a totaloutput of 550 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque. While the tuning company upped thepower, it also went to work on giving the cabriolet a more intimidating look.
Vath fitted the E500 Cabriolet with a set of loweringsprings, which have dropped the ride height by 30 mm for improved handling and abetter look. To accommodate for the extra power, Vath has also fit the convertiblewith a new braking system that has six-piston front calipers and 15-inch brakediscs. Steel braided brake lines rounds out the performance updates on thevehicle. Visually, the E550 Cabriolet gets a new front splitter, trunk lipspoiler and rear diffuser, as well as 20-inch wheels. Vath has done a fine job turning thepedestrian convertible into a monstrous vehicle.
