Massive boost in power matched by menacing carbon-fiber body kit.
Engine tuning maestro McChip-DKR has introduced its “mc8xx” aftermarket project based on the Mercedes C63 AMG. Concentrating on the hi-po sedan’s powerplant, the tuner boosted output from 457 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque to a massive 830 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque. Highlights of the engine rebuild include bigger oil and water coolers, new compressor technology and a remapped ECU.
The body has also been shown some love, with a Black Series-inspired carbon-fiber kit including new bumpers, hood, wings, side skirts, front splitter, rear diffusor, wing mirrors and updated head- and taillights. In updating the chassis, McChip fitted a KW Clubsport suspension, high-performance brakes, and a set of 19-inch OZ-Racing Superleggera alloys. The C63 was then finished in a shade of semi-gloss Ibis White borrowed from Audi’s color palate.
