With 6.2 litres of capacity and 510 horsepower on tap, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series would be enough for most any speed freak to play around with. But the tuners at Väth have taken it even further with a series of modifications.
For starters, Väth has supercharged the V8 up to 756 horsepower which is able to propel the beast to 100 kilometres per hour (62 miles per hour) in just 3.6 seconds and on to a 350 km/h (217-mph) top speed – good for those romps down the Autobahn. A stainless steel exhaust system, as well as new cats, silencers and exhaust tips are also on offer. An adjustable suspension is part of the package, as are upgraded rolling stock – 20-inch alloys on ultra-low-profile rubber – and (thankfully) upgraded brakes to keep it all in check.
The result is the V63 Supercharged, and buyers can select the individual upgrades they desire, along with an array of interior options. Check out the full press release below for all the details.
