KLEEMANN C 55K S8 *- *600 Hp, 760 Nm and 0-100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds!

Crazi stuff man..though the car doesnt look any nicer, the brabus looks better, so does the regular C55, but this is poooower...a sedan in the league with the real big boys..insane stuff man..I am sure it would be keeping up with them on the track as well..

Where does the power war end?



Cheers

Gawd, this car reaches 200 in about the time it takes my C Class to get to a 100!! But I am pretty certain its going to have a sticker of $100,000. Bang into regular S Class territory.

I guess probably more, cuz the brabus which is no where near this is priced at 100k.

Brabus 6.1 C is 4.5 sec, 475hp with some nicer body kit @ 99.9k Euros..crazi haah!!, but if you are getting below 4 sec perforance from a sedan, imagine what kind of a sleeper it would be..closeup to a F430 or a Gallardo and ask him to race and then let it unleash..and then tell them I paid about 50k less than you and also can seat 5 ...I know I know...they are still exotics and this is not..but just imagine..the guy will fall down of shame and never ever try and race a C again

What a sleeper, 600 BHP! Insane, i definitely wouldn't mind one of these. and 0.9G on the skidpad, would shame quite a few cars it seems. Though i wonder why Kleeman went ahead with a supercharger, because they are known to have the best turbocharging jobs in the world of the 3 pointed uber-saloons. Time to revise the wish list i guess.

One more thing......the front look lacks that impact somehow......Though side profile looks good enough.

What needs to happen is some nice lowered body kit creating a little wider body stance by extended fender etc..thats what is missing..something like a M3 GTR
