If you can afford a Mercedes S500, chances are you can also afford – if you squeeze yourself a little harder – an S65 AMG. Now, what if you like the S65 looks but don’t need all that power in your life?
Inden Design might have a solution for you.
This Mercedes S65 AMG you see here is actually a S500 converted to look like its high performance sister. It is actually better because it features a magnificent color, new rims and lowered suspension, which make it even better looking.
The rear and front bumpers, exhaust tips, diffuser, LED lights and the side skirts come directly from the S65. Inden then wraps the whole car in charcoal-gray matte film which look fantastic but as you know this kinda treatments require taking care of. You have to keep it clean all the time, or don’t take it to carwash very often, or don’t park it in the sun for too long… It’s a bit inconvenient!
Inden also provides some performance upgrades, probably to save you from being embarrassed if someone tried to race you! Their revisions to the Merc’s V8 results in 420 bhp which is not much, but it’s better than the 380 of the standard. Due to the increased power, the braking system was “converted” to the S600 V12 BiTurbo model with 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston brake calipers.
Also part of the conversion package are the 50mm lower suspension and 20-inch wheels wrapped in tires in size 265/30-20 at the front and 275/30-20 at the rear. For the interior you get A, B and C pillars, the headliner at the dashboard and door panel are trimmed with two-color leather in combination with black Alcantara. All the wood trims are replaced with carbon fiber parts and there’s also a 360 km/h speedometer to make you feel good!
