Back when the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT series came out, it originally shipped with a 462-hp (345-kW) engine. Later on, the company switched to more potent 522-hp (389-kW) engines. Then a high-end GT C came out with 557 hp (415 kW) under the hood. Finally, a Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ was released, offering whole 639 hp (477 kW). Imagine how those who have invested in the original version felt about it?

Tuner shop Posaidon comes to the rescue with the GT RS 700+ power kit! Once installed, this upgrade should raise the performance from the factory-promised 462 hp to the stellar 780 hp (582 kW)! This is much more than the 4MATIC+ variant ships with, let alone all others.

The torque simultaneously raises to 850 Nm (627 lb×ft). The company claims it could go higher than that, but had to be artificially limited to ensure integrity of the drivetrain.

The tuning kit includes an ECU remap, two new turbochargers, a new cold-air intake system and a better exhaust system.

On the outside, the car wears a few Posaidon logos and a “GT RS 700+” logo in the back.
