    • GAD Motors 5.8 liter M157 swapped C207 E-Coupe tops 1100 horsepower

      BenzBoost wrote about this car earlier in the year. As a quick refresher, this is a C207 generation E-Class Coupe. As you know, Mercedes-AMG did not produce the C207 E-Class Coupe with an E63 AMG variant and an M157 V8. Well, GAD Motors remedied that with a swap.


      Not only a swap but a built 5.8 liter M157 V8 with a big turbo upgrade. In that previous article on the car it produced 1048 horsepower and 1050 lb-ft of torque at the crank.

      Well, those numbers are now 1122 horsepower and 1211 lb-ft of torque respectively:


      How did GAD Motors get this massive torque increase? Only they can answer that. All we know is this car is a beast and a hell of a sleeper.
