Η Posaidon το 2015 είχε παρουσιάσει την E63 R850, μια βελτιωμένη E63 AMG, η οποία καλά μάντεψες, παράγει 853 άλογα. Τώρα η εταιρία από τη Γερμανία επέστρεψε με κάτι δυνατότερο. Την Ε63 RS850+, που εκτός από τα carbon μέρη, κρύβει αρκετά επιπλέον άλογα κάτω από το καπό του.

Βλέπεις, τα μεγαλύτερα turbo, τα βελτιωμένα συστήματα εισαγωγής και εξαγωγής, όπως και το νέο πρόγραμμα στην ECU, κάνουν τον twin-turbo V8 5,5-λίτρων κινητήρα να αποδίδει 1020 άλογα με 1400 Nm ροπής! Η εταιρία έχει αφαιρέσει τα πίσω καθίσματα, για να μειωθεί το βάρος του αυτοκινήτου, με τα μπροστά εργοστασιακά καθίσματα να έχουν αντικατασταθεί από τα ελαφριά bucket καθίσματα της C63 AMG Black Series.

Όλες οι παραπάνω αναβαθμίσεις, δίνουν την δυνατότητα το αυτοκίνητο να κάνει τα 0-100 χλμ/ώρα σε μόλις 2,8 δευτερόλεπτα, έχοντας τελική ταχύτητα 368 χλμ/ώρα, με την εταιρία να την “περιορίζει” στα 350 χλμ/ώρα!

POSAIDON E63 RS850+ with 1,020 hp and 1,400 Nm!

The legendary Bugatti Veyron needs no less than 16-cylinders, four turbochargers, and an engine capacity of 8.0 litres to generate 1,001 hp. Even the extremely rare LaFerrari requires an electric motor married to its classic V12 motor for a system output of 963 hp.

Yet both these hypercars fall short of the earth shifting power of the POSAIDON RS850+. Based on the Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic four-door saloon, the RS850+ takes the crown as the most powerful street-legal Mercedes of all time with an incredible 1,020 hp and 1,400 Nm of torque.

POSAIDON literally had to upgrade and re-engineer all the major engine components, starting with a pair of larger turbochargers and more efficient intercoolers.

Ram intake air was augmented with a bespoke carbon-fibre encased intake system incorporating a large free-flow conical air filter. Colder competition spark plugs are used and a handmade turbo-back exhaust system lead to a valve
control rear silencer. Finally, the ECU was custom mapped to make full use of the new hardware.

The gearbox was uprated to cope with the onslaught of the 1,400 Nm of torque, and POSAIDON fitted specially calibrated limited slip differentials to the front and rear axles of this 4Matic-equipped car.

As the big E63 AMG is anything but light, the POSAIDON engineers tried to shed unnecessary kilos wherever possible. To this end, the rear seat and rear door trims were removed, and POSAIDON replaced the front seats with the figure hugging race style lightweight seats from the C63 Black Series model, saving a further 40 kg. Finally, POSAIDON applied their Blitzer update to the Comand system.

Low weight costs money, but ultra-light and strong carbon-fibre parts were the only way forward and are used for the bonnet, front bumper, rear diffuser and spoiler, mirror caps and tailpipe trims. To facilitate maximum airflow to the big
radiator, the factory grille was replaced with wire mesh.

Thanks to all-wheel-drive, the POSAIDON RS850+ effectively translates its humungous power to the tarmac, hitting 100km/h from rest in just 2.8 seconds. Its theoretical top speed of 368 km/h is electronically limited to 350 km/h due to the safe load parameters of the tyres.

Sized 9.5×20-inch ET37 with 255/30R20 tyres in front, and 11.0×20-inch ET45 with 295/25R20 at the rear, the exclusive ADV.1 alloy wheels look good filling the wheel arches.

The suspension is uprated with fully adjustable coil-overs, while the stopping arrangements are looked after by a high-performance carbon-ceramic brake system. This uses 420 x 40mm vented discs clamped by six-pot callipers in front, and 360 x 32-mm vented discs with four-pot callipers at the rear.
