Inden Design Refines Mercedes S-Class

Inden Design Refines Mercedes S-Class

Those looking to modify Mercedes-Benz‘s S-Class should do so with caution. A luxury sedan with the prestige of Mercedes’ S-Class shouldn’t sport any extreme modifications and it looks like Inden Design has taken notes. Designed by Joachim Inden, the S500 sedan received a facelift from an S65 AMG with some very detailed modifications, making it a very clean and complete package.

Along with the S65 AMG front end, Inden Design further modified the front end, side skirts and rear diffuser to reflect their style. Daytime running lights were also installed while the taillights and mirrors were refinished. Accent the entire package with a charcoal-gray matte wrap and you’ve got one clean luxury sedan.

Not surprisingly, Inden Design also went to work underneath the hood, giving their S-Class the power to back up its good looks. Horsepower is now 420-hp, up from 306-hp. No real details were released on how the power gain was achieved, but Inden Design does disclose that the vehicle sports a new stainless steel exhaust system featuring AMG tailpipes.

Brakes were swapped in from an S600 model while a set of 20-inch wheels adorn each corner. The vehicle was then lowered just shy of 2-inches to complete the aesthetics.

Inside, the S-Class receives more luxury refinement with the A, B and C Pillars, headliner, dashboard and door panels reupholstered in two-tone leather and black Alcantara. The wood accents have been replaced with black carbon counterparts.

No pricing was announced.

Official press release available after the break.

FLY EXPRESS – unequal rival by INDEN Design

An icon of good style in the luxury class is the Mercedes-Benz S-Class without any doubts. Unending comfort, last future-oriented technologies, as well as all conceivable safety precautions are inevitable in the car of this category.

The widely known beyond the borders of the Hessian Haiger-Flammersbach noble tuner INDEN Design specializes in the just discussed vehicles, located very near the top category. In this case, Joachim Inden, which is known for so many masterpieces, has undertaken to rebuild the S500 of W221 series from Stuttgart to the facelift version of the S65 AMG. The modifications at the front, the side sills and rear diffuser are associated with the highly visible and distinctive quality of INDEN-Design. Of course, daytime running lights were also installed, and tail lights and mirrors were retouched. The vehicle is completed with the chrome parts, coated with charcoal-gray matte film.

The performance increase up to 420 hp, in particular thanks to a stainless steel exhaust system with two AMG tailpipes left and right, almost inevitably involves lifting of the Vmax limiter. Due to the increased power, the braking system was “converted” to the S600 V12 BiTurbo model with 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston brake calipers. The right set of rims for the perfect vehicle in dimension of 10.5 x 20″ with tires in 265/30-20 at the front and 275/30-20 – at the rear axle was fully installed. The standards of agility are set by lowering by 50 millimeters.

As might be expected, the interior was also not spared. The A, B and C pillars, the headliner at the dashboard and door panel are trimmed with two-color leather in combination with black Alcantara. In addition, all former wood pieces were replaced with black carbon parts. The speedometer change to a 360 km/h-scale closes the series of changes inside the vehicle.

As seen in the photos, thanks to INDEN-Design, the Mercedes stomp their hooves impatiently in anticipation of a power struggle with the unequal rival…
