    • Pure Turbos upgraded C190 Mercedes-AMG GT runs mid 10's and hits 139 in the 1/4 mile with the Pure800 M178 turbo upgrade

      Pure Turbos previously referred to their turbo upgrades on the M177 and M178 4.0 liter AMG platforms as either Stage 1 or Stage 2. This is what they refer to as a 'Pure800' M178 upgrade with the number obviously implying the output. Yes, there also is a Pure900.


      Well, it's making the indicated power and then some. The car hit 139.21 miles per hour in the 1/4 mile and it also ran a 10.5:


      Not bad at all for a rear wheel drive AMG sports car but a better 60 foot will get this car on the verge of 9's.

      Some better weather, some better rubber, and we might just see our first 9-second AMG GT.
