Carlsson CK63 based on the Mercedes C63 AMG

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Mercedes-Benz has made an extraordinary statement in the medium class series with the release of its C-Class top-of-the-line model C63 AMG. The relatively small C63 AMG houses an engine bigger than the 6-liter V8. However, since the power yield is comparably low, Carlsson set in motion its hidden potential.

With a power ceiling of 565hp, the CK63 speeds far ahead of its competitors leaving them all behind its stainless steel exhaust end pipes. Equipped with new wheels and more athletic aerodynamics, the C-Class series clearly demonstrates some top features. Carlsson CK63 is the embodiment of both performance and full torque.

The performance kit used for the M156 drastically improves the serial performance of the 6.3-liter V8 from 457hp (336kW) at 6,800 rpm up to 565hp/414kW. In the same manner, the torque is appreciably improved from 600 to 685Nm giving the car only 3.8 seconds to accelerate from 0-100kph instead of the series standard of 4.5 seconds.

Again, the engineers of Carlsson have proven their knowledge gained in motor sports. Included in the kits are, a special motor electronics version, a maximized speed reaching 300kph (which is limited electronically), a sport air filter and an impressive three-part Carlsson carbon motor cover including the compulsory Carlsson nameplate in chrome. Carlsson limits the speed ceiling to 300kph via an electronic device. The rear muffler not only delivers a massive sound from its powerful 565hp CK63 S-Kit but also delivers an extra boost of 15hp (11kW).

The Carlsson RS coil-over kit which was co-developed by Ellen Lohr offers a no-step height adjustment and provides a driving interface that has never been achieved before. The driver has more control over his preferences with the individually adjustable damping characteristics. The Carlsson C-Class provides the driver with a compromise-free ride with the comfort of its roadworthy suspension system and its racetrack capabilities.

To increase traction and stability, especially when traversing bends at high speeds, Carlsson recommends fitting its torque-sensitive multi-plate limited slip differential with variable lock-up where lock-up values are produced according customer specifications. The Carlsson top-quality aerodynamic design consists of a front spoiler, the front spoiler lip RS and a Carlsson rear spoiler that provides greater stability at higher speeds.

All parts are made of the high-grade PUR or the optional real carbon. The styling kit not only provides an outstanding finish but also a unique design emphasizing the Carlsson's designer standard of always developing something better than its rivals. Weight optimization was the main focus of the engineers and designers of Carlsson when they developed the 1/16 UL light alloy wheels. The wheel spider absorbs all the forces the wheels are subjected to as distributed to it by the spokes. The positive results of this are thinner wheel walls and lower wheel weight. The most advanced forging technology has successfully reduced the weight of the wheel by 38% compared to ordinary wheels with the same load and dimension.

Because of metal compression the impact of the forces are more evenly distributed as compared to a cast wheel. Such wheel design significantly improves driving comfort compared to the regular light alloy wheels. The forged Carlsson wheel 1/16 Ultra Light is available in the following sizes: 9.5x19inches (FA+RA) and 10x19inches (only RA) for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. According to customer specifications, Carlsson combines different parts and accessories for a personal custom-made mix, from a sport steering wheel to leather interiors or multi-media accessories. In the impressive car factory, the Carlsson CK63 S is also extensively customized. According to the desires of the buyer, unique specimens are made only with the highest quality materials.

Press Release

Carlsson CK63 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

With the C-Class top-of-the line model C 63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz has given an impressive statement in the medium class. Where else can you get an enormous larger than 6 litre V8 engine in a relatively small car? But as the power output is comparably low, the high-tech manufacturer Carlsson activates the hidden potential. With up to 565 hp, the Carlsson CK63 leaves its competitors behind its (stainless steel) end pipes. And equipped with new wheels and even more sporty aerodynamics, the top-of-the line C-Class model refined by Carlsson also shows clear features of a top athlete.

Carlsson CK63 – that stands for performance and full torque. The performance kit for the motor type M156 increases the serial performance of the 6.3 litre V8 from 457 hp (336 kW) at 6,800 r.p.m up to 565 hp/415 kW. The torque significantly increases from 600 to 685 Nm and therefore the car only needs 3.8 seconds to accelerate from 0-100 km/h instead of the serial 4.5 seconds. Once more, the Carlsson engineers are able to prove their expertise gained in motor sports.

All kits include a special motor electronics adaption, a maximum speed increase up to 300 km/h (electronically limited), a sport air filter and a noble three-part Carlsson motor cover made of real carbon as well as the obligatory Carlsson nameplate in chrome. Carlsson gently limits the never-ending thrust at 300 km/h for all models with an electronic device. The Carlsson sport rear muffler from the 565 hp strong CK63 S-Kit not only renders an enormous sound but also 15 extra hp (11 kW).

Coil-over kit and limited slip differential

The perfectly set-up Carlsson RS coil-over kit which has been co-developed by Ellen Lohr offers a step-less height adjustment and renders a driving dynamics which has never been experienced before. With the individually adjustable damping characteristics, the driver can regulate the setup according to his preference. With this new technical development by Carlsson, the driver does not have to make any compromise. He can enjoy the comfort of the roadworthy suspension system or race for top speeds on a racetrack. To ensure that the extra performance which has been imbued to the C-Class by Carlsson does not go up in smoke on the asphalt, Carlsson recommends fitting its torque-sensitive multi-plate limited slip differential with mechanically variable lock-up (produced with lock-up values according to customer requirements). This increases the traction and driving stability, especially when accelerating in bends.

Powerful-dynamic Carlsson aerodynamics

The elaborate premium Carlsson aerodynamics consists of a front spoiler, the front spoiler lip RS and a Carlsson rear spoiler (with an imprinted Carlsson logo) which renders stability at higher speeds. All accessories are made of high-quality PUR or optionally real carbon. The styling kit does not only stand out for its perfect finishing, but also for its unique design. It emphasizes the Carlsson designers´ claim to always develop something a bit nobler than its competitors.

High Tech forged wheels 1/16 Ultra Light

When developing the Carlsson light alloy wheels 1/16 UL, the engineers and designers most of all focused on a perfect weight optimization. All force effects on the wheel are led into the wheel spider by the regular distribution of spokes. This avoids an over-dimensioned wall thickness and leads to a low wheel weight. The latest forging technology leads to a weight reduction of 38% compared to ordinary wheels with a similar wheel load and dimension! Thanks to the metal compression, the induced forces are forwarded in a far more homogenous way than with a cast wheel. Therefore, the unsprung masses are held as low as possible at the wheel suspensions and that leads to a noticeable driving comfort improvement by the Carlsson forged wheels compared to customary light alloy wheels. The forged Carlsson wheel 1/16 Ultra Light is available in the sizes 8,5x19" (FA+RA) and 10x19" (only RA) for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

Finest craftsmanship dominates the interior

According to the customer requirements, Carlsson compiles various components to an individual comfort-mix, from a sport steering wheel to leather interiors or multi-media accessories. In the noble manufactory, also the Carlsson CK63 S is once again significantly individualized. This is how unique specimen are created with the best materials according to customers wishes.
