The motoring world is already brimmed with tuners specialized in modifying high-performance German cars, so you might wonder what does Piecha Design bring to the table.
Basically the same Teutonic recipe, only with a different style; perfectly highlighted by this Mercedes Benz W205 C63.
As Piecha says, the vehicle’s revised body-kit adds some masculinity to the AMG-powered C-Class’ round, soft contours – without making a mess of the original design, though. All visual components are German-manufactured, with a carbon-GFRP-sandwich solution for added lightness and stability.
Sitting on Piecha MP1 Monoblock 19-inch or MP5 LMX 20-inch rims, the model now pushes 612 PS (603 HP) and 840 Nm of torque to the rear wheels, accelerating from naught to 100 Km/h in 3.8 seconds. A significant leap in power from the stock 476 PS (469 Hp) output, which launched the car from standstill to the first hundred kilometers per hour in 4.1 seconds.
But for those lacking a AMG-bred W205, the German tuner offers the same package (minus the enormous power boost, obviously) with new, lowered suspension springs and wheel spacers on top – just to get the right aggressive stance. No wonder the model is nicknamed the “Rottweiler“.
