Lorinser’s latest creation (and possibly the most powerful S-Class on the planet) has just been revealed, and it’s officially been named the S70. The Lorinser S70 6.0 V12 Bi-Turbo is based on the Mercedes-Benz 600 but was given a host of updates. Lorisner added bigger turbochargers, a high performance exhaust, a remapped ECU and several other tweaks as well. As a result, the S70 offers up a whopping 805 PS (592 kW / 794 hp) and 1270 Nm (937 lb-ft) of torque, with a limited electronically to a top speed of 186 mph. For those who hate to be limited, this can be increased to 205mph upon request.
To keep the Mercedes S-Class from meeting an unpleasant demise at such high speeds and to improve stability, Lorinser reinforced the axles and differential, complimented with a set of matte black 20-inch RSK6 alloy wheels. Adding to the uniqueness of the Lorinser S70 is a two-tone paint job and body kit consisting of front spoiler, side skirts, air dams, roof and boot-lid spoiler and rear diffuser.
The interior of the S70 remained relatively true to the original S-Class, but does include custom upholstered Nappa leather and wood in black lacquer in addition to the Lorinser crests found on the head rests, seats, steering wheel and the updated instrument cluster.
