Available "Subscription" to speed from Mercedes-Benz for $1200 per year!

We have long been familiar and understand the paid subscription to TV channels and services, but it was really difficult to assume that there would be a paid subscription to "removal of speed limits" for a car. And that's exactly what happened.

Mercedes-Benz offered its customers from the USA to remotely remove the speed limit from the engine for a surcharge.

As a result, the newly minted "subscribers" will be able to reduce the acceleration time to 100 km/h by 8-9 seconds. And more precisely, the power of their engine will instantly increase by 20-24% (depending on the car model).

It is worth noting that the paid subscription option will not be available to all Mercedes-Benz owners, but only to owners of several recent models - electric vehicles:

- Mercedes-EQ EQE 350 4MATIC,

- Mercedes-EQ EQE SUV 350 4MATIC,

- Mercedes-EQ EQS SUV 450 4MATIC.

And the payment for this "pleasure" will be $ 1200 per year.

Whether car owners will like such a maneuver is hard to say. In this case, "limitless" for speed will be available not to those who are more professional in driving, but to those who have more money. And the fact of intentional blocking of the Acceleration Increase function for the engine at the software level does not cause much enthusiasm. The manufacturer reserved the ability to remotely change the software settings, so it is not necessary to visit the dealer's service center after ordering a "subscription". After payment, everything happens instantly.

It is interesting that Mercedes-Benz did not become "pioneers" in this matter. So, their competitors from BMW in the "paid subscription" included such options as heated seats, heated steering wheel, high beam control, driver assistant, updating navigation maps, as well as "simulation of the roar of a racing engine"...

Apparently, in the near future, we will be surprised more than once by the “creativity” of automakers in their desire to make even more money.
