German tuner Inden Design has a package that aims to bring the (W221) Mercedes-Benz S500 closer to an S65 AMG, at least in terms of looks.

The tuning package begins on the outside with a new front spoiler, side sills and a rear diffuser with integrated quad exhaust pipes. Daytime running lights are also added while taillights and side mirrors get their own touches too. The S500 gets coated in a charcoal-gray matte film for that unique flush look.

For the engine tuning, there's a power upgrade to 420 PS (309 kW / 414 bhp) up from the series' 388 PS (285 kW / 383 bhp) on the 5.5 liter V8. That comes in part due to the new stainless-steel exhaust system with AMG pipes.

Brakes are upgraded to those found on the S600 V12 BiTurbo with 6-piston calipers for the front wheels and 4-piston brake calipers to keep the rear axle in check.

Suspension lowering of 50 mm also takes place and helps highlight the new 20-inch wheels with 265/30-20 tires at the front and 275/30-20 tires for the rear rims.

For the cabin Inden Design has a two-tone leather and Alcantara finish for the headliner, door panels and all three pillars along with carbon inserts replacing the former wood trims. A new speedometer now reads up to 360 km/h.
