Lightbulb Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG gets the Wimmer treatment

Filed under: Aftermarket, Sedan, Performance, Europe, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury

2011 Wimmer Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG - Click above for high-res image gallery

Regardless of any meddling from the aftermarket, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is quite a handful in its stock form. That said, Wimmer hasn't exactly built a reputation for leaving well enough alone, and has now applied its expertise to the C63 AMG. The results are ludicrous.

Wimmer reworked the heads, added more aggressive camshafts, a bigger down pipe, high-flow catalytic converters, air intake and added a full stainless steel exhaust to the car's 6.2-liter V8. After all was said and done, the C63 pushed out 601 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. Wimmer has also removed the top speed limiter, which means the car will hit 203 miles per hour.

The car gets 8.5-by-19-inch BBS CH-R wheels up front and 9.5-by-19-inchers out back, wrapped in Dunlop tires. Keeping those huge meats planted is a fully customized suspension developed in-house by Wimmer.

The mod list to the C63 is impressive, and the work doesn't come cheap. The engine work alone in the Wimmer C63 AMG rings the register at €19,900 - about $28,000 USD based on current conversion rates. Add another €3,600 ($5,000) to include the suspension in the performance package.
