Anyone who loves crazy wheel designs hardly ever comes to the cult wheel forge Radi8 past. With their unusual creations, the “artists” among the rim manufacturers are finding more and more fans in the global tuning scene. It is generally the case that more and more importance is attached to using creative rims, because everyone can choose conventional wheel / tire combinations, so that the individuality, which is particularly important when tuning a vehicle, often falls by the wayside. With this Mercedes C-Class, which is doing its rounds in Brazil, it cannot be said that it is not individual, because it definitely stands out from the staid road traffic with its smaller but efficient modifications.
Subtle tuning on the middle class Benz.
So far we have been pleasantly surprised at the professional tuning projects that are rolling on the streets of South America. This C-Class is no exception, because it also looks skilfully and tastefully modified. The Stance tuningthat by a coilover has been achieved, makes the car look sporty, but not too deep, so that it can still easily pass most roads without damaging the front spoiler, oil pan or anything else.
But now comes the highlight, namely the Radi8 alloy wheels in 20-inch format, whose turbine look definitely polarizes. The golden version on the snow-white Benz would be even more striking, but the tuner opted for the more subtle version in silver. The model name of the extraordinary rim is R8T12, and it has perfected the gear look, which at first glance looks a bit like the hubcap of a steel rim. However, it fits the white Mercedes perfectly, because together with the lowering it creates a subtle, albeit sporty look.
Other minor modifications to the C-Class include a tiny one Carbon look rear spoiler as well as an indicated diffuserwhich, however, looks a bit like the underrun protection of an SUV model. All in all, the Benz would also be an eye-catcher on European boulevards and would certainly find a lot of fans, especially those of a younger age.
No changes were made to the interior.
The interior has remained standard, so that all conceivable comfort and safety features have been retained. High tech is a top priority, and that's why the C250 has a lot to offer.
The C-Class is powered by a 2-liter four-cylinder turbo engine.
As is almost common today in the premium mid-range, the C250 is also made by one Four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine powered, which has a 2-liter displacement. The unit generates a peak performance of from 211 HP and a maximum Torque of 350 Newton meters, which, however, is already present at 1.200 rpm. Thus, the load accelerates in respectable 6,6 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, and the maximum speed is 250 kilometers per hour. The power is transmitted via a 7G-Tronic automatic transmission with seven speed levels on the rear wheels. Equipped in this way, you can of course travel quickly and comfortably, and you could keep up with the C-Class on a German autobahn.
