    Does anyone need more than 200hp? angry

    Porker:

    Does anyone need more than 200hp? angry

    Yes. Smiley

    I would only be worried about warranty and reliability. 

    I could easily tune my family truck to 900 hp with TÜV(!).

    Reliability would be OK since this tuning comes with various cooling system improvements. 

    What for though? Of course it could be fun to keep up with an E63 S on the Autobahn Smiley but on the other hand, I am fast enough to be slightly faster than the previous RS6 Performance (we tried on our way to Garmisch), so what do I expect more from a 2.5 t truck? Smiley

    The tuning would void the warranty, a new Hellcat engine is around 30k EUR. Also, the drivetrain could be damaged, the 900 hp tuning provides around 1200 Nm of torque. Ouch.

    Yes, there is a "mild" 80 hp tuning for little fun (basically just a pulley, new sparks and software) but the warranty would be still voided.

    I love cars in their original state, had a couple of tuned ones (Delta HF Integrale Holzer Motorsport, 996 Turbo RS-Tuning, 997 Turbo RUF 550, Shelby GT500 Schropp) and to be honest, they all had issues in a way or another and warranty...well... Smiley

    Of course you are free to do what you want with your family car but you still have the 812... Smiley

    Man, you’re gonna love it even more. That V8 AMG sound with ~900Nm of torque never gets old. I just had a blast this morning on wet and empty Swiss mountain roads.

    I think an 812 does 0-200 in under 8, that's still something else. :)

    This one now seems to do 0-200 in slightly under 10, but in all conditions of course.

    It manages to make all occupants sick after one standing start. Brilliant 😂

    Re: Bought a muscle car...

    Can you disable all the nannies and drift it properly ? If so, does it sort of behave, or is it doing wild and unexpected things ?

    Sure, everything switches fully off without problem. You can either do that in 4x4 or in RWD. As an RWD it drifts very easily thanks to the long wheelbase I guess. There’s a video of some sideways fun a few pages back I think.

    Re: Bought a muscle car...

    Thanks, found it. To make it a RWD would be a big plus for me, since I never managed a 4WD drift for an extended time, without overheating the front diff
