Mercedes E350d Gets A Discreet Makeover, More Power From Vath

While Vath’s usual tuning jobs do include different AMG models, their latest project wasn’t originally born in Affalterbach, as it’s a simple Mercedes-Benz E350d, from the W213 generation.

The executive sedan is powered by a diesel engine, good for 258 PS (254 hp / 189 kW). With Vath’s upgraded electronics, it now makes 310 PS (306 hp / 228 kW) and a very impressive 710 Nm (524 lb-ft) of torque.

Having this power upgrade requires spending €1,190 ($1,373) in Germany, and for a bit more, the tuner can also remove the speed limiter completely, helping you get unstuck from 250 km/h (155 mph).

Contributing to the eye-catching yet subtle design of this Mercedes-Benz E-Class are a few discreet exterior upgrades, such as the lateral flaps and trunk lid spoiler, which cost €523.60 ($604) each, including coating and installation.

The chrome- or black-finished tailpipes, set buyers back for another €225 ($260), while the “diesel-sound-module” with six different settings, which provides a deeper tone to the engine, costs €1,892.10 ($2,183).

Vath’s final technical upgrade brings the entire ride closer to the road by 15-30 mm (0.59-1.18 in), for the price of €1,017.45 ($1,174). It does however leave enough room under the wheel arches for the 8.5×20- and 10×20-inch rims, front and rear. These have a titan high gloss or black finish, come with 255/30 and 295/30 tires, respectively, and start at €809.20 ($933).

*All prices include installation and are for the German market
