AD Charon Is An 850-HP Hypercar-Hunting AMG C63 S

Tuning / Comments

Subtle styling meets brutish performance.

Performance sedans are getting faster by the day, and in the persistent pursuit of power and speed, German automakers are delivering some of the most ridiculous four-door sedans ever made. One such car is the Mercedes-AMG C63 which could soon rewrite all the rules in the near future. For those currently cruising around in the W205-generation car, however, Polish-based tuning company Auto-Dynamics has come up with a ridiculously wild performance and appearance package that turns this already blistering car into a supercar-slayer delivering in excess of 800 horsepower. The company is responsible for some seriously fast supercars, so this latest creation, codename: 'Charon', doesn't come as a massive surprise, but boy does it look good.

Auto-Dynamics had one goal in mind when it started work on this project: to deliver a car with more than 800 hp. They achieved this by ripping apart the stock 4.0-liter biturbo V8 powertrain and replacing most components with high-performance parts. The turbochargers were modified on both the cold and hot sides to increase efficiency and the catalytic converters were removed and free-flowing downpipes installed. To help the car breathe better, a full carbon intake was also installed. To help keep things cool, larger intercoolers were included, and the transmission oil was replaced with high-performance lubricant. Custom ECU tuning then capitalized on the new hardware, and the end result is a massive 843 horsepower and 717 lb-ft of torque.

To help this beast stop on a dime, Auto-Dynamics installed braided steel brake lines and higher-rated brake fluid. On the handling side of things, the "Charon" receives lowering springs, and now rolls on a set of BBS CI-R 20-inch alloy wheels finished in Satin Black and wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires sized 255/30/20 in the front and 275/30/20 in the rear. The exterior also sees some serious changes in the form of a "minimalist" styling package that eliminates any chrome and adds parts such as upper door handle covers, a range of subtle AD850+ badges, and a tailgate accent strip. The car is finished off in a matte version of Brilliant Blue Metallic and looks like it's ready to shred tires and faces.
