If a supercharged Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe is on your wish list, you’ll be glad to know that German tuner Vath now offers the V63 Supercharged Tuning Kit. Aside from getting a supercharger, the 6.2-liter V8 has also been equipped with an intercooler, a stainless steel exhaust and, a new ECU map. Its output has been increased to 680 hp and a peak torque of 620 lb-ft (840 Nm) – a major improvement from the stock 457 hp and 443 lb-ft (601 Nm).
With this much power, the vehicle can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in exactly 4 seconds, making it 0.4 seconds faster than the standard model. It can achieve a maximum speed of 208 mph (335 km/h). It also delivers an outstanding stopping power, with a new set of brakes and features such as the 380 mm front rotors and stainless steel brake lines.
But if you really want to test the car by pressing on just the throttle and forgetting about the brake pedal, the power is distributed to the road via a limited slip differential. It also comes with a set of 20-inch rims and a Clubsport adjustable coilover suspension that lowers the car by between 20 and 65 mm. Moderate modifications can be seen on the exterior, similar to the approach used on the cabin.
A highpoint on the C63 AMG coupé from Mercedes-Benz is that the interior is dynamic and shows high-quality. Passengers for instance will immediately feel that the interior has indeed been especially designed as soon as they enter it. The instrument panel on the dashboard meanwhile comes with a screen integrated to it which brings to mind the CLS63 AMG.
On it as well are three round instruments that are disconnected from each other. They give the driver important information that include engine rpm, speed, coolant temperature, and fuel level. There are also other display options and these have been included as part of the AMG main menu.
All of these different features can be accessed using the multi-functional buttons placed on the steering wheel. There is also the three-dimensional TFT display in full color and located in the middle of its speedometer. If the ignition is turned on, it displays the AMG logo as if to welcome the driver. On the exterior, the C63 AMG coupé comes with a sporty and confident look that evokes the image of the SL63 AMG roadster.
While design features that are clearly specific to the AMG are still there, all of them have been expertly mixed in with the proportions of a classic coupé. As such, for a two-door compact car, it has a narrow C-pillar, strong shoulder line, and low profile. Other distinct aspects to the style include the stretched out and long roof, steeply raked windscreen, long bonnet, and short overhang.
On its rear end, it has that exclusive AMG rear apron that not only has the unique black diffuser insert but includes as well three prominent diffuser fins. Making this portion even more attractive is the AMG sports exhaust system, especially the two twin tailpipes in chrome. Going to the front end, one will likely see that usual AMG design given that this section is striking and shaped like an arrow.
This time it has the new AMG front apron which includes the side air outlets, daytime running lights which use LED and exclusive to the AMG, and the lower cross strut which comes in high-gloss black.
Its radiator grille is new as well and on it is the wing-shaped transverse louvre where the Mercedes star has been placed. This is complemented by the improved bonnet in aluminum with the powerdomes, highlighting its masculine feel. The clear-lens headlamps are also sure to catch attention especially when fitted with the Intelligent Light System, though this is an option.
The side meanwhile is where one can see the light-alloy AMG 5-twin spoke wheels in titanium grey. They have a high-gloss finish and are fitted with the 235/40 R 18 sized tires for the front and the 255/35 R 18 sized tires on its rear. Of course, the AMG side sill panels can be seen as well. Fans would want to know that the wide front wing has the 6.3 AMG legend.
