Mansory is not a tuner typically known for taking the mild approach. Its tuning jobs tend more towards the overwrought, with a proliferation of carbon fiber, gold trim, and questionable color combinations.
But this, this is altogether more sporty. Hardly what we might call “understated,” by most definitions. But for Mansory, we’d say it’s downright restrained.
It’s the German tuner’s latest package takes the recently updated Mercedes-AMG C63 coupe in a more aggressive direction. It features a new aero kit, upgraded engine, bigger wheels, and retrimmed interior. And as you can see, it’s gone for a white with black and red exterior treatment, instead of, say, bright blue and gold.
Under the hood, Mansory has upgraded the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to 650 horsepower (485 kW) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque. That’s a significant boost over the 469 hp (350 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) with which the C63 comes stock, or even the 503 hp (375 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) offered by the C63 S.
The tuner says all it had to do to get there was fit a new ECU and sports exhaust. And without a governor, it’ll top out at 193 mph (310 km/h).
Mansory has fitted 20-inch wheels and lowered the suspension by 1.18 inches (30 millimeters). Moreover, there’s a full aero kit, including front splitter, side skirts, diffuser, and both roof and trunklid spoilers that, like the mirror caps, are mostly made of carbon fiber.
The interior is upgraded with aluminum pedals, illuminated door sills, and embroidered floor mats. Mansory will also gladly fit whatever combination of leather, Alacantara, wood, and carbon you may wish – whether tastefully understated or otherwise.
