German tuner VÄTH is offering an upgrade program for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series. The German tuner is offering to increase the output of the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series’ standard V8 6.3-liter from 517 HP (380 kW) output to 756 HP (556 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft), by undertaking a series of modifications.

These modifications include the instalment of a new water-intercooler system, fuel cooler and a flow-optimized exhaust system with a bespoke exhaust manifold joined to a sport-catalytic system. These modifications allow the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).

Other modifications include 20-inch wheels with 265/30 R20 and 305/25 R20 tires (front/rear), an adjustable suspension as well as a high-performance brake system with 405mm discs on the front axle. The upgraded C63 AMG Coupe Black Series also features a new speedometer that could go as high as 400 km/h. VÄTH is offering the entire tuning program for EUR49,310, excluding VAT.

The new C63 AMG Coupé Black Series by Mercedes-Benz highlights its links with motorsport in every perspective. It also features a front section with an arrow shape and the signature Mercedes star in its radiator grille which has become a visual synonym to its unconstrained forward thrust. Its front apron contains air intakes to guarantee air flow all the way through its upsized cooling modules.

To support the engine heat ejection, the aluminum bonnet is available with two openings while the angled bar located in its front apron underlines the width of the vehicle. To help balance the car aerodynamically, the front splitter is also located in its lower end.

The car’s expressive design extends to its side view as its new front axle now comes with a better track width that calls out for a new set of wings which are widened on both sides by 28 millimeters. The 6.3 logos hint at the large-displacement eight-cylinder high-speed’s sheer power which is sucked out naturally under the bonnet. The air outlets are also indicated behind wheel cut-outs and calls to mind robust racing cars. The black strip in this model’s side skirts gives the viewers the look that upholds the notable front splitter idea. Because of the increased track in the rear axle, this new model’s rear wings are also extended up to 42 millimeters wider and the air openings are hinted at the front of its rear wheels.

New light forging technology for the AMG light-alloy wheels

In its market launch, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupé Black Series debuts remarkable wheel formats of 285/30 R 19 and 255/35 R 19. The tire combination is set at 9 x 19 for the front light-alloy wheels and 9.5 x 19 for the rear. These new dimensions play an important role in making the AMG sports car look alluring and dynamic.
