It’s always a tough task for tuners to give the Mercedes-Benz S-Class a tuning package, since it naturally already comes with some of the latest and greatest technology you can equip an automobile. Well, tuners are certainly still welcome to try—a challenge that German firm Inden Design was only too happy to accept with the S500.
Inden Design’s treatment will be bridging the gap between the S500 and the S65 AMG, and this is accomplished via some engine, exterior and interior tweaks. Starting things off is a stainless steel exhaust system that helps give the V8 power plant an output of 420 horsepower. Inden Design took the braking system from the S600 and added it to the S500 to compensate for the added power. The tuner also lowered the suspension by some 50mm and fitted 20-inch rims to the tires. Inden also disabled the electronic speed limiter.
The exterior of the Inden S500 features a new rear diffuser, side skirts and front apron. The interior of the car has been fitten with some carbon fiber trim and Alcantara leather. There’s also a new speedometer that reads up to 224 mph.
