Lorinser LV8 (500hp)

At the Tuner Grand Prix in June, Sportservice Lorinser will present a C-Class model powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine capable of developing 500 horsepower and 630 Nm of torque. The model is able of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 320 km/h. Despite its exciting performance, the model can be used for everyday driving as well. The attractive aerodynamic package with spoiler bumpers and side sills offers an incredible optical appearance and so, real class.

Deep C research

Lorinser is sending the LV8 to the Tuner Grand Prix with 500HP

At the Tuner Grand Prix on the Hockenheimring (26th/27th June) Sportservice Lorinser will be presenting a C-Class from another universe: 500HP (368kW) and 630Nm catapult the black limousine from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in 4.3 seconds and help it reach a top speed of 320. With a delicate touch of the accelerator the Continental tyres, with the ideal dimensions of 255/35 r18, start to cling with all vehemence to the tarmac, so that they don`t shed an ounce of traction. Here the 6.2 litre V8 makes a shout of joy which is enough to give you goose bumps, and breaks fresh ground with the well tempered Lorinser exhaust unit.

Despite its exciting performance the rapid vehicle, which enters the C3 Class (limousine suction cars), is fully compatible for everyday driving. "It meets all of the registration requirements for road vehicles and that is precisely what makes it so fascinating", explains the General Manager Marcus Lorinser. This is also helped, of course, by its optical appearance, which is characterised by an attractive aerodynamics package with spoiler bumpers and side sills. Viewed in this light it is a "C" with real class.
