VÄTH Adds Style To The Mercedes-Benz V-Class Without Going OTT
High-end Mercedes-Benz V-Class models are very well-equipped from the moment they leave the factory but that hasn’t stopped German tuner V”ATH from making one particular V300d even better.
Work on this V300d, finished in a shade dubbed Selenite Grey, started with the fitment of lower springs that drop the ride height by 30 mm (1.1 inches) and give the van a much sportier appearance. Complementing the lowering springs are a set of 20×9-inch V”ATH wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires measuring 255/40 at all four corners.

Further adding to the appeal of this particular V-Class are a set of new running boards.
Then there’s the exhaust. While we suspect that most V-Class owners don’t want to draw much attention to themselves, V”ATH has developed a stainless steel sports exhaust system that comes complete with polished tailpipes and makes the Mercedes-Benz sound much more impressive, at least according to the tuning company. The German tuner can also tune the V300d’s engine should customers want some additional grunt, resulting in 269 hp and 420 lb-ft (570 Nm) of torque.
The lowering springs developed for the V-Class have been priced at EUR540 ($541) while the wheel and tire package costs a cool EUR2,980 ($2,988). Meanwhile, the running boards are a EUR525 ($526) option, the stainless steel exhaust will set back customers EUR1,890 ($1,895), the engine tune is an EUR850 ($852) option, and a pedal tune is a EUR130 upgrade ($130).
