While we are waiting for Mercedes-AMG to roll out its new Black Series models, we can check out Vath’s upgraded C63s.
The Coupe and Cabriolet versions of the range-topping C-Class have received the tuner’s turbochargers, with new downpipe and oil cooler for the engine and gearbox, new valve exhaust system and a reprogrammed ECU.
This allows the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to produce an impressive 700PS (690hp) and 900Nm (664lb-ft) of torque. As a result, naught to 100km/h (62mph) takes a claimed 3.3 seconds and top speed has increased to 340km/h (211mph).
For the right sum, Vath would gladly fit your Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe and Cabriolet with a high-performance braking system, which includes 6-piston calipers, 390mm discs, braided stainless steel lines, sport brake pads and racing oil.
Additionally, a lowering kit, which brings the entire car 20-40mm (0.8-1.6in) closer to the ground, is also available, while those looking for an enhanced experience can order the complete suspension kit, with its double-spring system and oil pressure shock absorbers.
A set of 8.5×20-inch front and 10×20-inch rear wheels round up the list of updates on the outside, while a new speedometer, which points up to 360km/h (224mph), and floor mats made of black velour, are the only changes inside.
The power upgrade costs €12,800 ($15,860), to which another €3,440 ($4,262) are added for the exhaust system. Getting the improved brakes will set you back another €3,900 ($4,832), the lowering kit costs €690 ($855), and the suspension kit can be had from €3,500 ($4,337).
The wheel set is €2,800 ($3,469), while the attachment kit is priced at €250 ($310). Finally, the speedometer is also an extra and costs a cool €1,980 ($2,453), plus €150 ($186) for mounting, and the floor mats are a measly €190 ($235).
All this adds up to €29,700, which equals to $36,800 at today’s exchange rates, and that’s before tax. Plus, you’ll have to supply a Mercedes-AMG C63, of course. Still trying to process that $2.5k price for the speedo, though…
