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.
