It was a couple of years ago when German tuner Posaidon revealed their 850 horsepower power kit for the then new Mercedes E63 AMG. Since then they haven’t been up to much else besides thinking of ways to make that kit even more insane, and they’ve pulled it off. Posaidon Mercedes E63 now gets the RS850+ package with up to 1,020 horsepower.
Boasting a number of new features including a new aero kit and some weight saving measure, Posaidon Mercedes E63 RS850+ is based on a 4Matic S model. Choosing the four-wheel-drive version has been a good call because this thing has so much oomph, a rear-drive version just could not handle it. It would just sit there and smoke its rear tires, whereas the AWD can utilize that power to achieve some mind-bogglingly quick performance figures.
With 1,020 horsepower and 1,400 Nm of torque on the tap, the new Posaidon Mercedes E63 is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in a back-breaking 2.8 seconds, and flat out it can reach 368 km/h. Mind you, in order to achieve that kind of speed, this E has gone through some stern measures, including the loss of its rear seats, C63 Black Series front seats, a lightweight carbon aero kit, and a heavily revised gearbox, not to mention the addition of some really expensive brakes.
So no, it’s not a very practical car. But at least the few times that this Posaidon does work before it catches fire or explode or break down, you are going to have a jolly good time!
