750kW Posaidon Mercedes-Benz AMG E63

German tuning house Posaidon have taken the already brisk Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and created a road-going monster.

Taking full advantage of the AMG E63’s optional all-wheel-drive system, Posaidon have increased the E63’s standard output of 430kW/800Nm, good for a 0-100km/h time of 4.3sec, to a mind-bending 750kW/1400Nm.

The German tuning house starts by removing the two standard turbochargers and replacing them with larger, higher-flowing replacements and pairing them with more efficient intercoolers to ensure that they can run at optimum capacity. A redesigned ram intake, less-restrictive turboback exhaust and strengthened internals are all supported by a custom ECU tune to get the most out of the new hardware.

The result is substantial to say the least. The all-wheel-drive Posaidon E63 will sprint to 100km/h in a supercar crushing 2.8sec and keep going to an electronically limited top speed 350km/h.

The cost for all of these modifications? Well, start with the $270,000 that you’ll need for the donor car and then double it.
