VÄTH Tunes Mercedes-Benz C250 CGI

VÄTH Tunes Mercedes-Benz C250 CGI

Even though Mercedes-Benz‘s C250 CGI isn’t the most exciting of sedans, being part of its BlueEfficiency line, VÄTH has made the 1.8L model more powerful and more fun to drive. Their tuning package gives the C250 CGI the capability of hitting 270-hp, a major increase from the factory’s 204-hp.

For those looking for a nice increase in power without breaking the bank account, VÄTH offers a V25 tuning kit for around $1,535 U.S. which bumps power to 255-hp and 273 ft-lbs of torque. Max speed is also bumped up to 161 mph. But those looking for the 270-hp peak, an upgraded intercooler is available for around $1,430 and the sports exhaust system is $2,575. Those numbers are a bit pointless, however, as we don’t get the 250 model on this side of the Atlantic.

On the outside is a fine collection of carbon fiber goods: hood ($5,940), front lip ($1,815), rear diffuser ($2,270), and trunk spoiler ($425). A brake upgrade featuring 14-inch rotors in the front with 6-piston calipers and 12.5-inch rotors in the rear with 4-piston calipers can be had for around $6,860. A staggered set of 19-inch wheels complete with tires are priced at $5,180.

VÄTH mentions suspension upgrades in their press release, which sounds like a tuned coilover set of some sort, but details and pricing are left out. They close off the tuning package with some carbon fiber interior trim and Alcantara roof liner for $1,255.

PRESS RELEASE

Aschaffenburg-based tuninghouse VÄTH has created the V25 tuning kit (for about 1,200 Euros), taking the performance of the Mercedes-Benz C250 CGI from 204 HP to 255 HP (188 kW) and 370 Nm torque. This translates to a new maximum speed of 260km/h, which is always a bonus.

In combination with the VÄTH charged air cooler (€1,118.60 ) and the VÄTH sports exhaust system (€2,011.10), the car can even reach 270 HP!

In addition to the motor-technical improvements, the external appearance of the C-class is part of the obligatory program at VÄTH:

The C class presented here has been upgraded with special modifications to the coveted C63 AMG optic and tuned aerodynamically as well as visually with the VÄTH Carbon Motor bonnet (€4 641), the Carbon Front Spoiler Lip (€1,416.10) as well as through a Rear Diffsor (€1,773.10) made from carbon andTrunk Spoiler (€333.20).

Car lowering and a great set of wheels perfect the sporty silhouette.

Speaking of wheels: These are weight-optimised tailored rims 8.5×19 inches in size at the front and 9.5×19 inches at the bank, covered with 235/35ZR19 and 265/30ZR19: this costs around 4,046 Euros. The brake system has been adjusted to the new additions to be able to bring the vehicle to a stop much in much less time: 360 mm braking discs with 6 piston fixed gauges at the front and 320 mm braking discs with 4 piston fixed gauges at the back do their job reliably under any circumstances (complete for €5,355).

A complete running gear worthy of a racecourse has also been built in and has height and strength adjustable buffers as well as progressively harmonised springs so that the car drives comfortably on the one hand but still extremely precisely on the road.

Carbon can again be found on the interior, this time in combination with an Alcantara roof interior lining (€980.00).

The bottom line is not exorbitant sums, but a result that can be seen absolutely anywhere.
