Danish tuning house, Kleemann introduced an off-road (or is that allroad?) version of the Mercedes E500T wagon, the E50KCC. Where we'd have thought a torque boost to 568 ft-lbs. would have churned the Mercedes 4-Matic system into pea soup, Kleeman says it works just fine. In fact the 595hp wagon, which has been raised a modest two inches in ride height, can still go from zero to 60 in under five seconds, rivaling the AMG E55 for gumption. Flared fenders, a new wheel set and a body kit complete the package.
