Vath boosts output of 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate to 700 hp

Article by Christian A., on November 7, 2017

In our generation, super estates that had been tuned to become more powerful are becoming more common. One of the latest to be modified is the Mercedes-AMG C63 that has been made to go much quicker than the previous-generation supercars.

Thanks to aftermarket tuner Vath as they have turned this wagon into a ferocious beast. And believe it or not, in only 3.3 seconds, it can sprint from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) before hitting its maximum speed of 340 kilometers per hour (211 miles per hour).

After it has been tuned, the Mercedes-AMG C63 is now faster than a stock Ferrari 458 Italia by 0.1 second, which may not seem like much but any improvement is a big deal in this industry. This was attained after Vath tweaked its 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, that now gives out 700PS (690 horsepower) and 900 Nm (664 pound-feet) of torque. But if you want this to be done to your existing wagon, you will have to spend 12,800 euros ($14,870). With this, the tuner can enhance the car’s electronica and turbochargers, while adding a new oil cooler for the engine and transmission.

With the new valve exhaust system that has been added, the Mercedes AMG C63 Estate now sounds much more aggressive. Making its sound even louder will set you further back about 3,440 euros ($3,996). But that’s not its only feature, as the driver could choose from a meaty bubbling V8 bi-turbo, or a regular V8 in just a touch of a button.

That’s not all that Vath could offer though. Customers could opt for more upgrades for their estate, such as optimized brakes for 890 euros ($1,034), 690 euros ($802) suspension kit that could adjust the ride height between 20mm to 40mm (0.8 to 1.6 inches), a new set of wheels measuring at 8.5 x 20-inch up front, and 10 x 20-inch for the rear wrapped in Continental tires for 2,880 euros ($3,345), which will include a 250-euro ($290) attachment kit for the rims.

Lastly, Vath also gave the AMG C63 a carbon fiber package exterior upgrade kit. And this kit comes with a new front spoiler and rear diffuser. The carbon fiber package costs 1,980 euros ($2,300). In the cabin, there are also upgrades like the new speedometer that now has a maximum of 360 kilometers per hour (224 miles per hour) that costs another 1,980 euros ($2,300). To complete the package, there is a new set of floor mats in black velour, with the Vath logo, which you could get for 190 euros ($220).

If you get all of Vath’s upgrades for the C63, this would cost you about $29,000.

Indeed, it previously occurred at VÄTH – the specialists for automotive and engine technology located in Hösbach, Lower Franconia: a Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG T-model were converted - or in other terms – were tuned. Well, just another proof that even the good is still improvable.

The experienced VÄTH team implanted an in-house tuning-kit V63RS Export into the bolide for 12.800 Euro. It implies the individual fine-tuning of the engine electronic with Vmax boost, as well as the VÄTH turbocharger including a new downpipe and a VÄTH oil cooler for the engine and transmission.
The procedure lures 513 kW, as well as 700 PS and 900 Nm of torque out of the almost 4 liter displacement and grants a Vmax beyond 340 km/h. A sprint from 0 – 100 km/h is achieved in 3,3 seconds.

The VÄTH V 63 RS has its very own distinguished sound. Because of the valve exhaust system, the driver can choose between a meaty bubbling V8 bi-turbo or a regular V8 – simply by pushing the button. The tail pipes are available in the typical VÄTH look (oval shaped tail pipes in 115x85 mm, flanged tail pipe brims). The fee for this sound experience amounts to 3.440 Euro.
Because of the lifted performance values, the V 63 RS almost demands the VÄTH brake system optimization with braided stainless steel brake lines and sport brake pads – altogether with racing brake oil for 890 Euro.

In addition, the VÄTH crew installed a thread lowering kit (from 20 to 40 mm for 690 Euro). The kit provides a sporty, but always comfortable and save driving experience - enabled in conjunction with the original AMG Ride Control.

In order to bring this mighty power onto the road, VÄTH mounted its light alloy wheels V2_GT – each with five double spokes – to emphasize the sporty ambitions of the vehicle.
Each 680 Euro become due for the front axle in the dimensions 8,5 x 20 with 255 and 285 Conti tires, and for the concave design of the rear axle in 10,0 J x 20 each 720 Euro. Another 250 Euro will show up on the bill for the attachment kit of the rims.
The VÄTH-carbon package for 1.980 Euro includes a front spoiler to improve the aerodynamic and a rear diffusor. The roof spoiler lip is under preparation as we speak!

The VÄTH-team installed a speedometer with scale enhancement up to 360 km/h in the interior for 1.980 Euro plus 150 Euro for the installment. Finally, the set of stylish floor mats made of heavy duty, black velour with the silver VÄTH-logo for 190 Euro is worth mentioning. [All prices herein are quoted before value added tax.
