mchip-dkr Gives The C63 AMG A Hefty Power Boost

Looking like an art car reminiscent of the ones popularized by BMW, German tuner mcchip-dkr has managed to turn the already great C63 AMG into a car that packs both a visual and a performance wallop. Upon first sight of this tuner car, what grabs your eye are the decidedly eye-catching graphics, courtesy of CoverEFX. While the graphics package will definitely be loathed by some, it does give the beastly C63 AMG a whimsical look that will make you think that it’s a cute designer car with fancy 20-inch wheels. Which would be a terrible mistake. Because underneath that whimsical exterior is a powerplant that ups the ante from the… Continue Reading »

MKB Gives CLS 63 AMG A Terminal Velocity Of 340 Km/H

Feel that your CLS63 AMG is too portly to give those BMW M5s the spanking they deserve? Tuning firm MKB has the package that ought to cure those blues. Using as its base the 5.5 liter twin turbocharged V8 that already belts out around 560 horsepower, MKB works its tuning magic to give AMG’s workhorse an additional 140 horsepower, to give the CLS 63 AMG an output of 700 horsepower.  Torque output gets a similar hefty increase, from 590 lb-ft to almost 740 lb-ft.  With these kinds of figures, it’s not surprising that the four-door coupe sprints to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds. A very respectable time for a heavy… Continue Reading »

Wald Shows Wild G55 At SEMA

Seen at the recently concluded SEMA show was this wild-looking Mercedes-AMG G55, as interpreted by Japanese tuner Wald International. Featuring a ventilated hood, a new front grille, revised headlights, LED daytime running lights, a larger front bumper, and wider wheel arches, the brawny G55 was then given a purple-hued exterior. Thankfully, it’s only a wrap, so more conservative aficionados won’t have to moan about Wald destroying the car’s OEM finish. Predictably, a new set of alloy wheels was installed by Wald. The result is a weirdly aggressive-looking G-Class that looks just about ready to transform into an ally of Optimus Prime. As a show vehicle, it certainly is eye-catching and… Continue Reading »

Tuner CK63 RS Coaxes 640 Hp From Twin Turbo V8

Slowing its rise only when it reaches 260 kilometers per hour, this Carlsson-tuned CLS 63 AMG shows the potential of Mercedes’ a tuned twin turbo V8. Known as the type M157, this engine is a refinement by AMG of what  was originally the M278 engine developed for the S-Class. After extensive modification by AMG, this engine got the M157 designation. When an outside tuner like Carlsson is able to extract 640 horsepower from an engine already tuned by AMG to 560 hp, one wonders about the degree of conservatism that the factory tuners built into their work. Seeing the into to the video of how the CK63 RS absolutely lays… Continue Reading »

Tuner Combo Produces An Aggressive S-Class

From Canadian tuner SR Auto Group comes this remodelled S-Class that is sure to turn heads. For its Project Amadeus, SR Auto first started with an S63 AMG, no wallflower of a car. But as Mercedes enthusiasts know, even AMG offerings can look pretty subdued, unless of course we’re talking about the extreme Black Series models. What SR Auto Group did was to contact Japanese designer Wald, which contributed is Black Bison body kit for this ostensibly luxury sedan. This kit includes new front bumpers, side skirts, wider rear fenders, and roof and decklid spoilers. The fender treatment gives the car hints of the DTM look, as the rears of… Continue Reading »
