We Raise Some Hell In C43K

How fast is 120 kmph?I 100 kmph is 62 mph.That must we’re doing- OH CRAP, now it 200 kmph? That’s double 62, So we’re- hmm, I wonder how 240 kmph is.

Wait, it doesn’t say doing 240, it says

Screw this.Maybe I should hold on and worry about speeds later.

Raw power everything. Who am I kidding? Without unadulterated, tire-smoking power, would be nothing more pixies, butterflies, and happy It’s cars like C43K that make a little more interesting. How When you peg the throttle on this even at speed, you feel the torque from the power the is producing. Oh, did I mention we did all the testing of car on the Autobahn?

The heart and soul of this Mercedes is based off the AMG variant of the Inside the bowels of the engine bay the fairly stock 4.3L V-8 AMG deemed powerful enough for the Germany’s Lorinser, however, the Benz needed a little motivation, so the company installed a supercharger, or kompressor, onto the why there’s a K after the C43 designation. As we in a small German town a few from Lorinser’s main with little more a flick of the go pedal, Lorinser’s C-class readily turns its and soul into nothing than tire smoke.

The rest of Lorinser’s C43K was with comfort, style, and airflow in mind. The interior was restitched with Lorinser’s own pattern and insignias. Outside, the and rear bumpers were with low-profile units for better airflow into the compartment and out from the rear

The car isn’t all power, though. If it our tests would have ended in an impressive topple off the at the first corner. Most tuners, Lorinser included, learned that big-horsepower need to stick to the road a predictable and neutral demeanor. To this, and to allow the estimated 348 hp to reach the ground, Lorinser on a set of its light-alloy 17-inch wheels meaty Dunlop SP8000 front and 255mm rear Lorinser also utilized a set of its specially designed Sport and progressively wound springs. The is a car that takes a left-hand at 230 kmph like it’s an uninspiring 160 kmph. Don’t if that analogy means to you, as it meant nothing to us we flew past cars on a doing at least 70 kmph than anyone else.

Sadly, this C43K sees road time any It sits in the Lorinser facility dust. In fact, we headed to headquarters with CEC intending to a W203 C320 turbo, but the called to us from across the and although we’re sure the 3.2L V-6 would have an impressive powerplant to push to the nothing can quite duplicate how a V-8 when it’s breathing a large-diameter exhaust. That, and the to romp on a 4.3L producing 370 lb-ft of torque was too good an to pass up.
