Call it a sleeper, or a Q-car, there is something undeniably fun about having a car whose performance doesn’t quite match its exterior message. Estate cars, T-models or station wagons, call it what you will, the mental image they conjure up is mild at best.
Using an E63S AMG Touring as the basis for this project Kleemann’s engineers set out to make an all seasons super car, and succeeded. 849 hp and 1361 Nm (1004 lbs-ft) are at your beck and call thanks to the Kleemann modified turbos, ECU software and high flow turbo bridge pipes with race catalyst downpipes. All that power needs a tasteful of growl, which comes courtesy of the Kleemann X middle muffler. Increased boost pressures put high demands on the intercooling system, and hot intake air is no way way to make reliable power. To combat elevated charge air temperatures the intercooler system was enhanced with larger heat exchanger.
