2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class by Lorinser

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Camshafts that's hot? In the era of computerized tuning, it seems like a reminiscent of an artifact from the eighties. This is a misconception since no power can be juiced out from a naturally aspirated engine electronically. Still, mechanical methods continue to be the primary choice in this regard, and consistently effective in conjunction with engine management adjustment.

A specific illustration would be the C 350 Limo from the Sport service Lorinser, and irresistible enticement for those who have a passion for petrol: exceptional camshafts and a customized engine control unit have lit up more fires in contrast to the series version of the tremendously successful 3.5-liter V6.

305 hp (224 kW) in place of 272 hp (200 kW) are the product that can be felt in a non-charged engine, particularly because the fast Mercedes-Benz powerfully accelerates with 380 instead of 350 Nm, even at very low RPM.

As a consequence of the tuning method, the time between opening the exhaust valve and closing the intake valve grows larger. The product is a "hot" overlap, which is where the camshaft alteration gets its nickname. The Lorinser lowering kit, on the other hand, is accountable for the "hot" handling in the curb.What shall it be -- digital or analogue?

Music fans may take issue, but not car aficionados. The Lorinser sports exhaust system, of course, play good music entirely mechanically, and build up such a powerful crescendo when the accelerator pedal is floored that even eardrums shiver. However, the optical charms of the C-Class effortlessly arouse the yearning to get one. Where does the vehicle get its fascinating appearance?

Is it from the well-made exhaust tailpipes incorporated into the Lorinser rear apron that the stylish roof and rear spoiler are raised high above? Or is it the strong side sill of the attractive front apron?

The answer obviously is "all of the above." The RS 8 model's matt black 19-inch light-alloy wheels are attention getters as they offer electrifying contrasts in combination with a white-colored body. Elegant alternative is added by the silver-colored light-alloy wheel RS 9 from Lorinser accessories. A fact that will continually illustrate that the Winnenden customizer will consistently be at the forefront when it comes to inspiring passions for cars.
