POSAIDON GT RS 700 1

Γιατί να σταματήσεις στα 630 άλογα όταν μπορείς να πας ψηλότερα; Αυτό σκέφτηκε η Posaidon και παρουσιάζει την GT RS με 700 άλογα!

POSAIDON GT RS 700 12

Το αυτοκίνητο, βασίζεται στην Mercedes-AMG GT S που σημαίνει ότι ο βελτιωτικός οίκος είχε στην διάθεση του τον twin-turbo V8 των 4 λίτρων για να παίξει. Και έπαιξε! Αναβάθμισε τα turbos, αντικατάστησε το intercooler με ένα μεγαλύτερο, την εξάτμιση με μία πιο ελεύθερη και αναπρογραμμάτισε την εργοστασιακή ECU. Το αποτέλεσμα όλων αυτών, είναι όπως είπαμε 700 άλογα και 750 Nm ροπής. Κατά συνέπεια, τα πρώτα 100 km/h από στάση έρχονται σε 3.2 δευτερόλεπτα, ενώ η τελική είναι 349 km/h.

Οι πελάτες, έχουν επίσης την δυνατότητα να απενεργοποιήσουν το εργοστασιακό start/stop σύστημα και να ενσωματώσουν το COMAND Online σύστημα ραντάρ προειδοποίησης μπλόκου τροχαίας.

The 700 hp beauty: POSAIDON GT RS 700

There is no doubt that Mercedes-AMG has scored a direct hit with their

gorgeous AMG GT/GT S, whose classical sportscar proportions of a long

bonnet and short tail are just the start of its attractions.

The heart of the AMG GT is the 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 (M178) engine

developing 462 hp and 600 Nm of torque, while the motor of the GT S

version makes 510 hp and 650 Nm. These outputs rapidly thrust these cars

to 304 km/h and 310 km/h respectively.

For POSAIDON however, even the AMG GT S is just the starting point of

something far more exciting. Enter the POSAIDON GT RS 700, offering a

full 700 hp, accompanied by 750 Nm of torque.

While POSAIDON has the technology to raise the maximum torque figure

well beyond 750 Nm, this peak number was imposed for longevity reasons

in line with the factory recommended torque limit for the AMG

SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed dual clutch transmission. This electronic

torque limitation can be lifted upon written customer request.

Given a perfect standing start, the POSAIDON GT RS is capable of

slashing the 0-100 km/h sprint to just 3.2 seconds. But with rear-wheel-

drive only, full performance is best experienced from a rolling start. Either

way, the stupendous torque will pin you to your seat until the speedometer

shows 349 km/h.

To generate this level of power and torque POSAIDON applies its in-house

turbocharger upgrade and increases the intercooler capacity. A bespoke

exhaust system featuring free-flow motorsport grade catalytic converters

connects directly to the revised turbochargers, and helps to lower

backpressure.

ECU mapping for the engine and gearbox is carefully calibrated on both the

chassis dynamometer and the street. With the modified turbochargers

building more boost pressure at lower revs and maintaining it as engine

speed increases, the 750 Nm (limited) peak torque is delivered on a plateau

almost across the entire engine speed range, while horsepower rises

progressively with engine revs.

On request, the standard start-stop technology can be permanently

deactivated. POSAIDON also offers its radar speed trap warning system

that integrates into the factory COMAND Online navigation system.
