Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W140)

Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W140) tuned by KO Motors, called the KO 860.

KO Motors worked on a Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W140) not so long ago. Then, it uploaded a video of it on YouTube for the world to see its breathtaking power.

According to the description of the video, the car is packing up to 860 hp and 1,190 Nm of torque in its M275 AMG engine. There were no details about the nature of the upgrades in the engine department, because as far we know, the M275 unit only goes from 604 hp to 670 hp with its torque somewhere at 1,000 Nm.

According to MB World, this particular Mercedes-Benz S-Class is nicknamed by KO Motors as the KO 860, which reflects its output in horsepower. It is owned by Istvan Sywa.

In addition, the source claims it is by far the most powerful W140 in the world. Its engine configuration enables it to accelerate from zero to 62 miles per hour in just 4.3 seconds, zero to 123 mph in 10.6 seconds, and to 170 mph just a little pass 20 seconds.

The video below shows what the KO 860 can do when it is unleashed on the racetrack:

Based on the source, another project is being planned by Sywa and KO Motors. The next is a cross between a Mercedes and a Camaro. Basically, it involves putting a M120 V12 engine from Mercedes-AMG into a 1973 Camaro. Then, it will be mated with a 7-speed sequential gearbox, and a front suspension from an S65 AMG.

It remains to be seen what comes out of that plan. But it sure is something to look forward to.
