This 900+ WHP CLS 63 AMG Has Trouble Going Straight

Apparently, there is such a thing as “too much power”, no matter what some tuners out there are trying to tell you and especially when talking about a rear-wheel drive car.

The highly-modified Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG in the following video is said to develop over 900 hp at the rear wheels and probably an ungodly amount of torque.

Since the car is an earlier CLS 63 AMG, it doesn't have the AMG-tuned 4Matic all-wheel drive system, so that amount of power is simply too much to be handled by the rear tires alone, as the video so eloquently is depicting.

We're not entirely sure what tuning company is behind the evil modifications to that sweet-sounding M157 engine, but it sure must be one that doesn't really care about launches from a stand still.

As you can see, this roaring CLS even has trouble launching straight if the go-fast pedal is mashed in any other way that gently, with the large four-door coupe going sideways whenever it gets the chance and way before the electronic stability control sensors tell it to pipe down and cut the power.

[Later Edit]: It seems that the video description has been modified, and the company behind the modifications is none other than Weistec Engineering, while the 900+ hp may or may not be at the rear wheels, who apparently where almost bald. Either way, it's an insane car by any measure.
