A MASTERPIECE by VÄTH: THE CONVERSION OF A C 63 AMG
Indeed, it previously occurred at VÄTH – the specialists for automotive and engine technology located in Hösbach, Lower Franconia: a Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG T-model were converted – or in other terms – were tuned. Well, just another proof that even the good is still improvable.
The experienced VÄTH team implanted an in-house tuning-kit V63RS Export into the bolide for 12.800 Euro. It implies the individual fine-tuning of the engine electronic with Vmax boost, as well as the VÄTH turbocharger including a new downpipe and a VÄTH oil cooler for the engine and transmission.
The procedure lures 513 kW, as well as 700 PS and 900 Nm of torque out of the almost 4 liter displacement and grants a Vmax beyond 340 km/h. A sprint from 0 – 100 km/h is achieved in 3,3 seconds.
The VÄTH V 63 RS has its very own distinguished sound. Because of the valve exhaust system, the driver can choose between a meaty bubbling V8 bi-turbo or a regular V8 – simply by pushing the button. The tail pipes are available in the typical VÄTH look (oval shaped tail pipes in 115×85 mm, flanged tail pipe brims). The fee for this sound experience amounts to 3.440 Euro.
Because of the lifted performance values, the V 63 RS almost demands the VÄTH brake system optimization with braided stainless steel brake lines and sport brake pads – altogether with racing brake oil for 890 Euro.
In addition, the VÄTH crew installed a thread lowering kit (from 20 to 40 mm for 690 Euro). The kit provides a sporty, but always comfortable and save driving experience – enabled in conjunction with the original AMG Ride Control.
In order to bring this mighty power onto the road, VÄTH mounted its light alloy wheels V2_GT – each with five double spokes – to emphasize the sporty ambitions of the vehicle.
Each 680 Euro become due for the front axle in the dimensions 8,5 x 20 with 255 and 285 Conti tires, and for the concave design of the rear axle in 10,0 J x 20 each 720 Euro. Another 250 Euro will show up on the bill for the attachment kit of the rims.
The VÄTH-carbon package for 1.980 Euro includes a front spoiler to improve the aerodynamic and a rear diffusor. The roof spoiler lip is under preparation as we speak!
The VÄTH-team installed a speedometer with scale enhancement up to 360 km/h in the interior for 1.980 Euro plus 150 Euro for the installment. Finally, the set of stylish floor mats made of heavy duty, black velour with the silver VÄTH-logo for 190 Euro is worth mentioning. [All prices herein are quoted before value added tax.
