Lorinser’s Makeover for this Mercedes C400 is Good but not Enough?
Lorinser is a tuning company famous for its Mercedes-Benz makeovers and this is the reason we are currently making this review. The car under the sport is the C400 4Matic, which has received a numbers of tweaks that increase its visual characteristics and performance capabilities. It is a well known fact that the latest C-Class inherits brand's iconic power as well as athleticism.
The first thing that one sees in this car is the changed emblem, which now features tuner's name. It is also obvious that the vehicle has been given black front grille as well as new front and rear bumpers. Five spoke alloys are a necessity, too.
At the back of the car, under the new bumper, the tuners have added a new exhaust system. It features four-tailpipes and in contrast to the overall black-out theme, it is in bright silver finish. Basically, these features round-out the exterior treatment for this Mercedes and let us proceed to the changes under the hood.
The 3.0-liter V6 powerplant has be modified via a software and now produces 389 PS (286 kW) and 580 Nm (428 lb-ft) of torque. This is an increase of 56 PS and 100 Nm in comparison to the original engine, which without any treatment delivers 333 PS and 480 Nm. When it comes to acceleration we are sure of one thing: the car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 250 km/h that hasn't been changed.
All in all, Lorinser has created a really nice project, but I am missing some interior changes, as well as more fresh and shiny details to the exterior. What is your opinion?
