WIMMER Rennsporttechnik offers upgrade kit for 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Estate

Article by Christian A., on October 10, 2015

When it comes to upgrading a car’s electronic and mechanical parts, WIMMER Rennsporttechnik at Solingen is one of the few names that car owners trust. The company has been in the business, which includes clear chip tuning, engine and exhaust system conversions, for more than 20 years.

Not only are they good, they’re also compliant with MOT certification standards. Managing director Thorsten WIMMER and his team do their jobs in a 2,400 sq m. workshop. This sizable workshop is ideal for critical jobs involving engine aeration, exhaust systems, chassis techniques, sports clutches, braking systems or car accessories.

Currently, Wimmer and his team are working on an Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Estate. This beast has a horsepower of 510 HP, equivalent to 375 KW. Notably, the C 63 S already comes with superior accessories and upgrades. However, one of Wimmer’s tasks is to optimize the software.

To do this, the team needs to make sure that the existing control unit matches the serial data. Matching will allow the team to find the “secret reserves” in the engine to make it more powerful. Matching will make sure that no additional strain is put on the already powerful engine when it is uprated from 510 hp.

The team then turned their attention to the C 63 S’ sports exhaust system. WIMMER specializes in upgrading exhaust systems, giving them a full sportive sound. The company does this by custom-making stainsteel exhaust systems tailored for each individual car.

The exhaust systems are optimized through dynamic pressure, and come with pre-silencer and axle back exhaust. Car owners can also opt for sports cat and Y-pipe and electronic valve command. This particular C-class car now produces 640 hp (417 kW) after having been given upgrades that include a sports exhaust and cat as well as Y-pipe.

Total uprated power is at 96 kW or 130 hp. Because the combination of the wheels and tires is important in power transmission from the vehicle to the road, the WIMMER team tackles this by installing BBS type CH rims that measure 8.5 x 19 inches on the front axle and 9.5 x 19 inches on the rear axle in place of the original items.

The team also had the task of choosing suitable sport tires to ensure that no loss of power occurs when the tires connect with the road. KW coilovers were selected for their capability to hold fast to the road when cornering in high speed. A C-class has raw power, but Wimmer proved that it can still go further.

There’s only one way to find what that power is and that is to get this Solingen Company to optimize it. For more information about this particular C 63 S job as well as the other products of the company, directly contact the Solingen Company.

Press Release


The area of electronic and mechanical power upgrading – which means in clear chip tuning, engine and exhaust system conversions – is field of activities of WIMMER Rennsporttechnik at Solingen since more than 20 years.

Under most recent conditions and corresponding to the MOT certification demands, the team around managing director Thorsten WIMMER works in a 2.400 m² workshop, if it matters to make works on engine aeration, exhaust systems, chassis techniques, sports clutches, braking systems or car accessories.

The object of experience is in this case – a red painted and already best equipped by AMG C-class model named C 63 S with serial power of 510 HP (=375 kW). For software optimization, the power uprating data are being worked out at WIMMER's individually, matching to the serial data and the existing control unit.

This way, it is possible to profit from the “secret reserves”, that are inside every engine ex works, without any trouble, so that the engine will not be subjected to any unnecessary strains. The next point of attack is the road admitted sports exhaust system.

Handmade dynamic pressure optimized stainless steel exhaust systems with pre-silencer and axle back exhaust with friendly-sonorous and sportive sound are brand independent specialty of the Solingen enterprise.

These are being custom made for every car, optionally with or without sports cat and Y-pipe and electronic valve command. Besides full sportive sound, there is also a power uprating included. The total power of this modified C-class with sports exhaust and cat, Y-pipe and customized data runs up to 640 HP (= 471 kW).

This is a significant considerable uprating by 96 kW or 130 HP, respectively. The fact that the wheel-tire-combination as link between road and car has the not always simple task to transmit the concentrated car power onto the road, if possible without losses, is not seldom underestimated.

In the present case, the WIMMER team resolves this kind of task by means of BBS type CH rims dimensioned 8.5 x 19 inches on the front axle and in 9.5 x 19 inches on the rear axle. As tiring, suitable sport tires were chosen.

In this context might be mentioned the developed by KW coilovers, permitting speedily cornering thanks to the perfect road holding.

In order to experience the wild power (in the truest sense of the word) of this upgraded C-class, there is only one solution: Make the optimization and hit the road! For more information concerning this C 63 S and the whole product range of the Solingen Company, please contact directly.
