Because too much is never enough, and because this decade's outrageous horsepower wars have deadened our innate sense of what counts as too extreme, this is what we've come to: a . Because you can't get heated seats on a JATO rocket.
This adjective-straining exercise in audacity reworks just about every spinny, boosty, and breathy component of the S63 AMG's engine–a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that before Mansory got its mitts on it. But this is the future, son, and here in the future we want four-doors with power figures that breathe down the neck of the .
So here you have it, a big-body executive sedan electronically limited to 1032 lb-ft of torque, assumedly because any more would make your bespoke diesel locomotive jealous. A vehicle Mansory says will will blast from a dead stop to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, faster than a which, we should point out, has neither the S63's passenger capacity nor its cello-swallowing trunk. It's electronically limited to 186 mph, though. Lame.

Yes, it's festooned with 22-inch wheels and more linear feet of carbon fiber than you'd find in the first three Fast & Furious movies, but coming from the tuning house that thought the , this Benz announces its custom-ness at a volume somewhere below a full-throated scream.
If restraint is more your thing, Mansory also offers a daintier package with a mere 788 horsepower and 885 ft-lbs of torque. But come on, it's almost 2015. Who ever heard of settling for less horsepower?
