Article by Christian A., on May 16, 2012

If you are the happy owner of a 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG and you are simply not satisfied the looks of your car we believe that German Special Customs is the company you should contact. Why? Because GSC create the Stealth bodykit for the CLS 63 AMG and you will be amazed by its looks.

As you can see from the photos, the CLS 63 AMG received a dramatic design update and features a new front hood with larger air intakes, a new front grille as well as a new front bumper featuring carbon fiber and bigger air intakes.

Moreover, the vehicle features enlarged fenders and new side sills, while the rear end comes with a completely new bumper with integrated carbon fiber air diffuser. A trunk lip was also added for better dynamics.

According to the German tuning company, the front and rear bumpers, as well as the hood are made from carbon fiber. The engine remains the same, which means a 5.5-liter V8 biturbo delivering 518 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and capable to propel the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds and to a top speed limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h.

Fitted with the AMG Performance Package, which offers 550 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, the CLS 63 AMG will be able to take you from naught to 60 (96 km/h) in just 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 186 km/h or 300 km/h.

Mercedes’ new CLS63 AMG brings about associations with the SLS AMG when it is viewed from the front, particularly its radiator grille with its Mercedes star and its wing-shaped horizontal slats, which appear to be inspired by the gullwing. This top-of-the-range Mercedes AMG model is distinguished from other CLS variants through its distinctive bonnet, its specific AMG front apron complete with black painted cross member, and its wider mudguards with the "V8 BITURBO" logo.

The car also has striking features at its rear, including the diffuser insert, AMG sports exhaust system plus dual twin chrome tailpipes, AMG spoiler lip on its boot lid, and integrated rear foglamp. Moreover, the AMG body styling matches the usual CLS outline perfectly. This outline is essentially characterized by elegantly long proportions, with the lateral dropping line as well as the muscular shoulder line above its rear axle.

What’s more, this philosophy consistently continues through the car’s interior. All AMG-specific design and appointment elements supplement the redesigned interior of the CLS. The wrap-around effect in its cockpit, together with the high line that sweeps from the door of the driver over the instrument panel support then across to the passenger door at the front, is flanked generously by high-quality trim elements. These trim elements are available in standard black piano lacquer in the top-of-the-range AMG variant. Meanwhile, quality materials and workmanship are able to meet the highest standards and help guarantee an exclusive atmosphere.

The CLS’ wide range of standard appointments likewise includes AMG sports seats done in nappa leather, as well as a new 3-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel featuring flattened top/bottom sections and aluminium shift paddles, and an AMG DRIVE UNIT plus compact E-SELECT selector lever.
