It is very important for the tuners to consider the class of the car they are modifying, and they should come up with an appropriate package. Mercedes E-class is a prestigious executive saloon, so it’d be ridiculous if you install flashy bodykits on it. Fortunately, CDC International tuning firm understands this and offers a very discreet and cool package for the E350 diesel.
They pick the E350 CDI with AMG Sportpack, so the car already looks brilliant and they don’t have to change anything! Because if they do they will ruin it! So they make it simple : First they fiddle with the Merc’s air suspension and drop the car by 30mm and then install their massive 20 inch rims which look kinda classic but pretty nice. This set of wheels and tires cost you a cool 6,500 euros! And that lowering is a 995 euros job.
CDC can also gives the car’s 3.0 liter V6 engine a bit more stamina! For 1,000 euros they tweak it to produce 271 hp (231 standard) and 600nm of torque (540 standard) so it has a lil bit more power to play with.
CDC Mercedes E-Class is one classy ride. It manages to be unique and dignified, it’s not boring like a normal E-Class anymore, and it’s not embarrassing to be seen in like most heavily tuned cars are! Like I said, very cool.
