Carlsson E-CK63 RS based on the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The latest project of German tuner Carlsson is the limousine E-CK63 RS, which is based on the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. As with any other Carlsson tuning packages, the focus was on both the styling and the performance. The engineers tweaked the car to reach 585 HP, a feat that it achieved without changing the cubic capacity of 6.3 liters.

Maximum torque was increased from 630 to 695 Nm. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is achieved in 4.5 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds faster than the factory model. PU-RIM technology figured largely in the car's aerodynamic enhancements, which consist of a front skirt, extended wings, side moldings and rear skirt.

Carlsson also installed a carbon diffuser on both ends of the stainless steel end pipes from the exhaust system. In addition, Carlsson mounted 1/5 REVO wheels with 8.5x20 size at the front and 10.5x20 size at the rear.

A luxurious atmosphere was created due to its interiors that used leather and ultrasuede. The tuners didn't stop with the seats and the steering wheel, they also lined the automatic gearstick and the insides of the doors with the most delicate materials.

Considered standard equipment on all model grades are the SRS curtain and front side airbags. Interior highlights include aluminum applications such as the door lock studs, the pedals and the foot rest. Another striking addition to this package are the illuminated floor mats with an embedded, white illuminated Carlsson logo.

Being the most powerful model in the E-class, the dynamic superiority of the Carlsson E-CK63 RS is matched by a well-refined interior. Interior refinement comes courtesy of leather and ultra-suede materials that are used on the seats, the steering wheel, and the automatic gearstick.

These exquisite materials can also be found on the insides of the doors. The interior of the Carlsson E-CK63 RS is highlighted with aluminum applications on the door lock studs, the foot rest and the pedals. Moreover, the interior of the strongest E-class is further highlighted by illuminated floor mats featuring an embedded white illuminated Carlsson logo.

As the most powerful E-class, the Carlsson E-CK63 RS needs to be a very refined one. Thus, Carlsson took great efforts to improve every aspect of the vehicle including its dynamics, luxury and personalization.

To give its customer peace of mind as well as a new level of confidence in their Carlsson E-CK63 RS, this E-class comes with a three-year Carlsson warranty.

Carlsson E-CK63 RS

The most dynamic business limousine by Mercedes-Benz is the E 63 AMG. The company AMG which is located in Affalterbach skilfully combines 525 hp (386 kW) with very luxurious interior equipment.

But for Carlsson this was neither dynamic nor luxurious enough. The automobile manufacturer from Merzig / Saarland presents the new E-CK63 RS based on the E 63 AMG and thereby discloses the technical possibilities.

The core part of the refinement is the entirely re-engineered V8-engine. The Carlsson engineers accomplished to boost the performance from 525 hp (386 kW) to impressive 585 hp (430 kW) without changing the cubic capacity of 6.3 litres. Also, the Mercedes specialists from Merzig increase the maximum torque from 630 to 695 Newton metres. With a perfected motor management, an optimised exhaust system and most accurate adjustments, the E-class top model by Carlsson accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in only 4.5 seconds. This is three tenths of a second less than the acceleration values of the E 63 AMG.

The head designer Rolf Schepp transferred the performance of the car to its appearance. His complete aerodynamics package containing front skirt, extended wings, side mouldings and rear skirt reveals the power of the Carlsson E-class at first sight. All of these components are made of polyurethane (PU-RIM) which guarantees perfect fit and highest stability. At the same time all aerodynamics components render an increasing downforce during rising speeds and therefore ensure the optimal power transmission onto the road and safety even in the limit range. The carbon diffuser grabs the stainless steel end pipes of the exhaust system on both sides and perfectly finishes the visual metamorphosis. When driving calmly, the exhaust system contains itself in a pleasant way, but once the driver accelerates, it presents a powerful sound backdrop which ideally matches the driving characteristics.

But Carlsson does not only enhance the performance and improves the aerodynamics.

The revolutionary refinement of the E 63 AMG also shows in the new wheel design. With the Carlsson wheel 1/5 REVO in 8.5 and 10.5x20 inches, the automobile manufacturer fits a trend-setting, one-piece light alloy wheel.

The wheel has five double spokes, one is painted in matt black and the others sparkle with a high-gloss polished surface and are aimed at the self-confident driver.

The refinement of the strongest E-class is perfected with the interior. There, Carlsson uses leather and ultrasuede and therefore creates an enormously luxurious atmosphere. Not only the seats, but also the steering wheel, the automatic gearstick and the insides of the doors are lined with the most delicate materials. Carlsson sets highlights with aluminium applications such as the door lock studs, the pedals and the foot rest. Another eye-catcher are the illuminated floor mats with an embedded, white illuminated Carlsson logo.

With the E-CK63 RS Carlsson in every respect presents a refined E-class. The Mercedes expert increases the athleticism, luxury and individualisation of the strongest business limousine. In addition, Carlsson confirms the renowned quality with a three-year Carlsson warranty for its own works.
