A range of comprehensive tuning packages for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG are on the market. Here’s a look at some of the best.
As one of the tuning community's most popular cars, there are plenty of Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG aftermarket packages available for those that want to restyle their rides or give them an added injection of power and pace. AMG's 6.3-liter V8 is no slouch, mind you, and with 451 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque at its disposal, the high-performance coupe can sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. But there will always be drivers out there wanting to join the 500-hp club, and that's where tuning firms come in.
Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris is synonymous with tuning packages for Abarth and Alfa Romeo, but once turned its hand to the C63 AMG, dubbing the project WhiteStorm. The exterior has been given a matte white finish, while other enhancements include a carbon fiber roof and trunk lid lip, black fog light surrounds, a black grille, black diffuser and a set of 5-spoke design black AMG alloy wheels. The cabin has been fitted with red leather seating. Romeo Ferraris also altered the ECU, which, combined with the sports-tuned exhaust, provides an additional 79 horsepower over the standard car.
HMS Tuning offers a range of performance packages for C63 AMG, made up of a modified ECU, sports filter, Y-Pipes with sports catalytics, a performance valve exhaust system and three supercharger kits, the most potent of which increases power to 690 hp and 646 lb-ft of torque. The body kit for the C63 AMG consists of a carbon-fiber rear diffuser, rear fin, a front bumper in either carbon-fiber or fiberglass with LED daytime running lights, and rear fender flares. 19-inch bi-colored 5-spoke alloys, brake upgrades and a KW Clubsport Coilover suspension complete the tuning kit. If you want the entire list of upgrades, it will cost in the region of €50,000.
German tuning firm Edo Competition took a C63 AMG Wagon, and by adding a new exhaust system complete with headers and high-flow catalytic converters, high performance air filters and an ECU revamp, upped output to 600 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque. Top speed is now measured at over 211 mph thanks to a speed-limiter override. Edo's interior for the Mercedes C63 AMG Wagon is fully-customizable and can be lavished in carbon fiber, Alcantara and leather. The exterior features a body wrap wrap and a set of ridiculously aggressive multi-piece 19-inch wheels.
California-based tuning company Vorsteiner created a body kit for the German coupe made entirely out of carbon fiber in order to keep the weight down while adding plenty of style. The kit includes a front add-on lower spoiler, badgeless front grille and front fender grille covers, front vent louver covers, side skirts, trunk-lid with integrated spoiler wing and diffuser. It sits on a set of either 19- or 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, blacked out for a stunning contrast with its white exterior finish. Vorsteiner subtly influenced the interior, adding bespoke floor and trunk mats available in a wide variety of colors. An optional titanium or stainless sport exhaust system completes the kit.
Wheelsandmore introduced a tuning package dubbed the 5.7 Edition Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG adding power and slick styling. Designed to give the coupe a racing-car feel, it features an adjustable coilover suspension, special 4-in-1 manifolds, sport air filters, stainless-steel exhaust system, and 20-inch blacked-out 6Sporz forged alloys. Total power output has been measured at 570 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque, creating a new top speed just shy of 200 mph.
