Carlsson gives the Mercedes-AMG C63 S sedan a motorsport flavor

Carlsson has once again been making the rounds in the automotive world as we can see from its latest iterations for an A-Class and an S Class Convertible. And now, here’s another one from Carlsson -- A Mercedes AMG C63 S has just received a whopping 625 PS and new aero treatment package.

It does look like Carlsson has finally moved on and is now up for something spectacular. Only last year, the German auto tuning company had met its lowest point riding under the wheel of Zhongsheng Group Holdings Ltd. Thankfully, its new owners, Sambo Motors Co. Ltd. came to the rescue and they successfully saved Carlsson from bankruptcy.

Carlsson’s aero kit comes with augmented air intake, diffuser, rear apron, spoiler lip, side skirts, aero flaps and black-chromed tailpipes. It only makes sense to have all these on a Mercedes-AMG C63 S. After all, the auto tuner’s creations have always been centred on cars with superb performance.

Carlsson presents minty-green Diospyros version of Mercedes-Benz S 500 Convertible

How would a Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet look like once German tuner Carlsson does its work over this premium car? Well, the people at Carlsson got a Mercedes S 500 Convertible and gave it a number of modifications that it referred to as the Diospyros package.

One of the most glaring revisions made on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet is the exterior color wrapping its metal sheet. Diospyros is wrapped in a light mint green color that Carlsson has dubbed as "Carlsson Heritage Green." This modern mono-color paint, which was developed by Carlsson in collaboration with Standox color specialists, produces a golden shimmer when it is exposed to sunlight.

This Carlsson Heritage Green is accentuated by a piano lacquer finish in multiple parts like the car’s grille and bars. Another visual revision made on the Diospyros could be seen on the front end of the car – a diamond grille with Carlsson’s stallion logo.

The new front bumper is complemented by a RS lip spoiler, Carlsson’s trademark three-piece stainless steel mesh grille inserts that make the vehicle look sportier and more elegant.

It seems that Carlsson, the well-known German tuning company specialized in tuning Mercedes-Benz cars, knows this as it sold a 70 percent stake to Zhongsheng Group Holdings, a major Chinese auto retailer.

According to Zhongsheng's chairman, Huang Yi, the company is working on an aggressive plan for Carlsson and a main advantage will be its vast network of dealers stretching from Heilongjiang province in the north to Guangdong in the south.

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.
