Blown AMG V-8. Enough said.
The 6.2-liter V-8 developed and hand-built by AMG has been known as one of the most viscous V-8s currently used in German performance cars. The engine is also known for its character, reminding drivers of a classic American muscle car V-8 with German refinement. German tuner, Väth, has taken the 6.2-liter V-8 in the C63 AMG and given it a new supercharger system that whines with power and shreds asphalt.
Named the Väth V63, the new tuning program is a supercharged, aerodynamic performance monster. The engine was given the V63Supercharged upgrade from Väth that includes a new supercharger with yellow-painted intake manifold, special Väth water intercooling system, special engine and oil cooling system, and individualized engine ECU tuning. To reduce backpressure and let the monster roar, Väth installed a stainless-steel exhaust system with sport mufflers and throttle control.
The result of the V63Supercharged upgrade is a thunderous 680 horsepower and 620 lb-ft. of torque. The increase in power propels the supercharged C63 AMG to 62 mph 4.0 seconds and to a white-knuckle top speed of 208.16 mph (335 km/h).
Due to the fact that the Väth V63 is capable of breaking the 200 mph barrier, the German tuner was forced to develop new aerodynamic components to keep the sedan stable at such high speeds. Carbon fiber became the chosen material because of its high-strength and low weight, and used to create new front and rear spoilers. The rear was also given a visible carbon fiber diffuser. Väth then extended the rear track by 80 mm for better grip with new carbon fiber rear fenders.
Filling in the widened wheel arches are a new set of three-piece mesh forged wheels measuring 9 x 20 up front and 11 x 20 at the rear. The front pair are fitted with 255/30 R 20 high-performance tires, while the rear was given a pair of 295/25 R 20s. A Clubsport coilover suspension system allows for a range of adjustable settings and can lower the car by 20 – 65 mm. Bringing the supercharged C63 AMG to a stop are new high-performance brakes with 380 mm rotors, stainless steel braided lines, and high-performance fluid.
As part of the Väth V63 upgrade program, customers also have the option to choose from a variety of interior refinements. The standard leather steering wheel can be replaced with a wood or carbon fiber unit, and the speedometer can be extended to 360 km/h. Even the stock trim pieces can be replaced with carbon fiber material for a sportier appearance.
The entire Väth V63 supercharger program (without car) for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is currently available for € 64,308 (+/- 84,000 USD). As part of the program, the German tuner provides a no questions asked ten day test drive with the car.
