Mercedes C63 AMG preparado pela Vath vem super-vitaminado em questões de performance, passando dos 457 cavalos de origem para uns brutais 680 cavalos de potência (limitador de velocidade foi removido, novo compressor, e linha de escape com alta capacidade de fluidez).
A suspensão foi rebaixada entre 20 a 65mm, de forma a obter-se mais segurança e reforçar a imagem super desportiva do C63. Já para não falar do excelente equipamento em carbono (spoiler frontal, difusor) e as jantes de 20″.
680 cavalos para o Mercedes C63 AMG preparado pela VATH
Mercedes’ plans to offer a “simple” C-Class model were diluted when the company also announced they were planning an AMG version of the model, but Vath is muddying that water even further by offering a souped up variant of that AMG model. The classic look of the C-Class mixed with AMG speed and Vath’s ability to improve on that speed is a combination that leads to the C63 AMG Coupe V63 Supercharged, and a killer Sunday drive.
Before we get down to the nitty gritty, we’ll go over some of the less speedy additions to the Mercedes. Vath took care to add a carbon front spoiler and a visible carbon-fiber rear diffuser with enlarged fins to improve the aerodynamics, as well as a new set of three-spike 9×20 inch forged rims. There is also a Clubsport coilover suspension that allows the C63 AMG to be lowered by 20-65 mm. The interior was only mildly touched, with the addition of a sports steering wheel covered in leather and different wood and carbon fiber insertions.

Now that that’s out of the way, we can move on to the highlight of the package. The C63 AMG’s original 6.2 liter V8 engine’s electronics were individually fine-tuned and a compressor system with a Vath water intercooling system was then added to jumpstart the vehicle’s standard 457 HP all the way to 680 HP and 619 lb-ft of torque. This boost will allow the C63 AMG V63 Supercharged to sprint from 0-60 mph in only 4 seconds, up from the standard 4.5 seconds. The speed limiter was also removed, leaving the Mercedes with a top speed of 208 mph.
