Schmidt Revolution’s kit for Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe raises output to 572 hp

Schmidt Revolution is well known for coming up with excellent tunes for specific models and this time around, it displayed its take on the C63 Coupe from Mercedes-AMG.

At present, the C63 Coupe is powered by the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that is capable of 469 hp (476 PS) and peak torque at 479 lb.-ft. (650 Nm). This is where the tuner starts to work its magic. Schmidt managed to up the power to 572 hp (580 PS) and even increased the peak torque to 538 lb.-ft. (730 Nm). With these figures, it is likely to have better acceleration compared to the standard engine, the latter of which allows the C63 to go from standstill to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 4 seconds. Be aware though that this update would cost you about $2,666 (€2,499).

With the update on the engine, it means you will likely need to put in other changes like the KW thread springs, which will cost you an additional $853 (€799). Meanwhile the level 3 KW coilover suspension will need you to put out an extra $2,752 (€2,579). If that’s not enough, the special Capristo exhaust system, which comes with throttle valves, will set you back $5,334 (€4,999). So far, that amounts to above $11,000, or more than €10,000.

It does not stop there as Schmidt’s tune will also include the 3-piece forged rims measuring 9x20 inches on the front. These would then be wrapped with the 245/30 tires. Meanwhile, the rear measures 10.5x20 inches and is covered with the 285/25 tires. This wheel and tire combination results in the C63 Coupe having that special and exclusive appearance. This upgrade costs $6,295 (€5,900).

This is not the first tuning package that Schmidt has released for the year as it had also revealed its own version of the BMW M4 back in February. That time, the main focus was on the wheels, specifically the front, being replaced with 10.5Jx20-inch wheels and Michelin Sport 265/30 tires. The rear on the other hand had the 11.5Jx21-inch version with the 305/25 rubber. What was good about this wheel and tire combination was that it did not require any change in the body work. The tuner though did not reveal how much that would cost.

Additional upgrades Schmidt offered for the M4 include an exterior trim made of carbon fiber and a ceramic brake system. Then there are also the Lowtec springs, which are built-in, and that allow the vehicle to be that much closer to the ground. Schmidt is also offering a new exhaust system by Friedrich Motorsport. Power wasn’t forgotten as Schmidt then said that its tuning allowed for an output of 532 hp and 592 hp. The last bit is the special Daytona Grey matte vinyl wrap which allowed the M4 to be even more attractive.
