Lorinser is not a tuner that goes out of its way to create cars that scare other motorists off the freeway. Subtle but effective is how they do it over at Lorinser. Occasionally though, they present something like this which is called the Lorinser LV8. It's based on the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG and instead of pushing out 332kW (451hp) it delivers 368kW (500hp). Maximum torque is also increased to 630Nm. Subsequently the 0 - 100km/h dash can be achieved in 4.3 seconds while top speed goes up to 320km/h.
The LV8 comes fitted with 255/35 18 Continental tyres and a special Lorinser exhaust unit. The aerodynamic kit includes spoiler bumpers and side sills. Lorinser General Manager Marcus Lorinser says the car meets all the registration requirements put on road vehicles.
Look out for the LV8 at the Tuner Grand Prix on the Hockenheimring between the 26th and 27th of June.
Deep C research
Lorinser is sending the LV8 to the Tuner Grand Prix with 500HP
At the Tuner Grand Prix on the Hockenheimring (26th/27th June) Sportservice Lorinser will be presenting a C-Class from another universe: 500HP (368kW) and 630Nm catapult the black limousine from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in 4.3 seconds and help it reach a top speed of 320. With a delicate touch of the accelerator the Continental tyres, with the ideal dimensions of 255/35-18, start to cling with all vehemence to the tarmac, so that they don't shed an ounce of traction. Here the 6.2 litre V8 makes a shout of joy which is enough to give you goose bumps, and breaks fresh ground with the well tempered Lorinser exhaust unit.
Despite its exciting performance the rapid vehicle, which enters the C3 Class (limousine suction cars), is fully compatible for everyday driving. "It meets all of the registration requirements for road vehicles and that is precisely what makes it so fascinating", explains the General Manager Marcus Lorinser. This is also helped, of course, by its optical appearance, which is characterised by an attractive aerodynamics package with spoiler bumpers and side sills. Viewed in this light it is a "C" with real class.
