Mercedes V-Class with 4.0 V8 Bi-Turbo engine and 585HP?!

4.0 V8 Bi-Turbo

Original it was a V250 diesel with 190HP. GAD saw enough space to install another motor, so we were incredibly happy. The idea was to put the 4.0 V8 Biturbo in our super bus, but this engine could not be installed easily. Therefore, GAD decided to create a new V-class motor specifically for this project.

As a result, the M177 was born with modified GAD parts. After physically installing the engine, we needed a lot of work with setting up and connecting the electronics. All parts communicate with the engine (ESP, disctronic, gearbox).

GAD also thought about safety in the car, so they put ceramic brake discs and modified the suspension system. Of course, the new engine desperately required a new exhaust system made by GAD. They installed the complete exhaust gas aftertreatment system with catalytic converter and GPF (gasoline particulate filter) to achieve the latest generation of exhaust gas emissions.

The low temperature system and the oil cooling system were re-forged. We have modified the nine-speed transmission.

After the necessary test kilometers, the car showed about 585 horsepower, excellent handling and speed set. This car turned out exactly as they planned it. GAD still have a lot of issues to resolve with the regulatory authorities with the bureaucracy and documents.

It should be noted that the car does not experience stress with the new engine, there is no feeling that the car is too powerful. It is harmonious, modern and anticipates your expectations when driving. They created the car not for the client, but for the GAD team.

GAD have not changed the interior; the car is convenient for traveling long distances. But now you can drive 100-200 easily on the autobahn without stress and any effort. Driving in the left lane is very safe and easy. The V8’s beautiful sound adds to the feeling of comfort. The sound is not loud, but it is noticeably deep and memorable – definitely more than the diesel!

People see a lot of surprise and incomprehension on people’s faces, because the pleasant roar of the engine and what you see in front of you (the body) do not coincide in the head. At the same time, they are very harmonious together, as if they were born for each other. Watch the video and follow us also on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram!
