That engine again! Awesome...

I know the ride would have been stiffened in the Kleemann package, my question is how stiff? The Merc E class is know for its ride quality so how much of it has been lost?

If I had that kind of money, I would've surely bought a car like yours.

the car has 4 stages of electronic dampers so the car can be completely stock, raised for speed bumps or sport mode and race mode.

Congratulations on the car gemballa.
I remember seeing the car 3 years ago when I moved to Pune. Only saw it once and I thought I was hallucinating. Good to know I wasn't going mad.
Can you give use some history on the car?
Was it converted from new?
Was it converted in Germany or India?
Where was it serviced then/now? Who has the technical knowledge to understand the beast?

Default All hail the Devil

I have been trying to think up a term for the car.
I can't because none of them really tell what an incredible piece of machinery it is.

Thanks for sharing it with us lesser mortals

And the next time you are in Pune, lemme know when you are out for a spin would like to see(if I manage to) and hear it in action

650, 900, 300. Mind-numbing numbers man!

Let me rephrase that "Thanks for the images mate, that clock with the AMG logo on the console looks awesome"

the car has to run on 97 fuel or above only.....the car is serviced at MB india and its pretty straight forward.... the car has only 12000km so nothin much has needed to be done so far. the car was converted by kleemann after the engine was run in and the technicians from kleemann have overseen the work done on the car.

Oh okie. Now it makes more sense. And is definitely not standard on the regular E.

For a minute I was suprised at what I saw, then I realized your speedo is in MPH

Rolling start at approx 30km/hr and shoots to 130km/hr in 9 seconds. I'm sure it could do better??
You can hear the wheel spin in 2nd gear too

I'm not sure if it's due to the phone cam but it doesn't seem to rumble as much as the 6.3 AMGs.
I used a CLS63AMG extensively while I was studying in Boston and that sounded very different inside compared to this.

It starts from 30mph and goes to 90mph in approx 6 secs, he floored it around 3 sec and video end on 9 sec

30mph = 48kmph
90mph = 145kmph
