The German shop G-Power now has a new horse in the stable.
German shop G-Power is known within the tuning community for its high-horsepower BMW builds. You may remember its recent 615-horsepower M4 GTS, or its earlier X5 M with as much as 750 horsepower. But this time the shop has turned its attention to another infamous German marque – Mercedes-Benz.
Under the hood is where most of the magic happens. Even still, the car also gets a set of visual upgrades that help it stand out from the crowd.
In doing so, G-Power has come up with an AMG GT sports car well worthy of a second look. The factory 4.0-litre V8 has been tuned to produce a whopping 610 horsepower thanks to a new Bi-Tronik five-power module – a healthy increase over the stock 462 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. From a standstill, it will blast to 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in just 3.6 seconds.
Under the hood is where most of the magic happens. Even still, the car also gets a set of visual upgrades that help it stand out from the crowd. A slightly revised front fascia and a set of lightweight Hurricane RR alloys wheels keep the original aesthetic mostly intact, while reducing weight and improving chassis dynamics at the same time.
The wheels measure in at 9.0x20-inches at the front, and 10.5x21-inches at the rear, and come wrapped in a set of 275/30R20 and 305/25R21 tires. For the wheels and tire package alone, it will set you back a cool €7,645 (approx. $11,000 CAD). The Bi-Tronik five-power module, meanwhile, €2,563 (approx. $3,600 CAD). In total, you’ll be paying close to €10,000 (approx. $14,000 CAD) to add some oomph to your Mercedes-AMG GT.
If the AMG GT isn't your cup of tea – worry not. G-Power also has an available package for the S63 AMG sedan, which brings power to a whopping 700 horsepower with a top speed of well over 321 km/h (200 mph).
