Mercedes-Benz C216 presents the current generation of CL-Class as the luxury two-door coupé and it is based – in spite of the yesterday’s body size in length, width and height – from September 2006 on the slightly modified platform of the S-Class limousines (Series 221). Since the vehicle was originally equipped with a large number of technical features, the “renovation” may be primarily focused on power. Company VÄTH Automobiltechnik is based in the Bavarian city of Hesbahe (Hösbach) near the city of Aschaffenburg. This company was once again able, after quite purposeful actions, to put the sports car of the highest category on the wheels.
The increase in power, for example, by Tuning-Kit V63S turns on the individual precise adjustments of the electronic engine management system including an increase in the maximum speed is now represented by the following data: about 463 kW/630 hp, 930 Nm maximum torque, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 4.3 sec. and – in case of wheels camber – the top speed is 300 km/h. The emission level has been reduced by the device made of stainless steel and Sport-Kat.
In order to optimize the brakes, on the approval of the engineering supervision, the tubes of fuel inlet are made of curved steel in which the brake fluid Castrol SRF circulates. VÄTH also offers the adequate brakes air blow-off in an optimal way. The alloyed disks have three spokes on 9×20-inch at the front and 10,5 x20-inch at the rear with the 255/35ZR20 tires or 275/35ZR20 – the optimum connection between the vehicle and the road. Factory made ABC (Active-Body-Control)-chassis are located deeper and is more comfortable in the first and second gear of the damper and in the third they are tightly regulated as in all sport cars, so the agility is clearly improved.
The cap of the side mirrors is made of carbon fiber, the car also features carbon fiber radiator cover and the rear diffuser, as well as the trunk spoiler and if necessary it may be lined with carbon as well. Naturally, VÄTH has taken care of the interior as well. Thus, the sports steering wheel, created by them, in the full sense of the word indicates the direction. Also, the leather interior gives the car a prestigious looks. By the way, the carbon or precious wood lining is available in accordance with your desire. The expected speed of 360 km/h suits this vehicle perfectly.
