Väth - V58 (SLK55 AMG)

German tuning house Väth specializes in turning up the heat on already well equipped Mercedes-Benz models. The latest addition to their stable is the V58 based on the SLK55 AMG which is already a high performance roadster that is powered by a 5.5 liter V8 producing impressive 355 horsepower with 376 pound feet of torque.

Väth was obviously not happy with that performance and almost doubled its power output to 565 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. A total engine overhaul and retuning results in this kind of improvements and the maximum speed is clocked at 193 mph. Full exterior revamp has been performed as well giving it an even more aggressive exterior via aero kits and 19 inch wheels. Interior is given a fresh upgrades for a sportier aesthetic matching the rest of the vehicle.
