Are you finding the regular C63 S Estate understated? This is anything but that.
Because obviously 510 horsepower is not enough for the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Estate, the German tuners at Wimmer Rennsporttechnik have decided to extract more muscle from Affalterbach’s biturbo V8 engine. It still has the exact same 4.0-liter displacement, but the pair of turbochargers has been upgraded and the injectors also had to be modified. Some software wizardry was also involved in the tuning process, as well as modifying the fuel pump and intercooler together with installing an additional water pump. Add into the mix a stainless steel exhaust system and the end result gives the Mercedes wagon supercar levels of power.
To be exact, the eight-cylinder engine has been massaged to deliver a mountain-moving 801 horsepower (589 kilowatts) and a whopping 900 Newton-meters (664 pound-feet) of torque. For the sake of comparison, a standard C63 S has “only” 510 hp (375 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft).
With the massive power boost in place, the high-performance wagon can reach an impressive top speed of 199 mph (320 kph) after loosening up the 155-mph (250-kph) limiter. The maximum velocity is still electronically capped to preserve the integrity of the tires wrapping the 20-inch BBS wheels backed by red brake calipers. The tuner doesn’t say anything about the 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint time, but they must have taken the C63 S well below the four-second mark considering the standard car needs 4.1s.
Wimmer wants €29,500 ($33,180) for all of these upgrades, on top of the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Estate’s starting price of €86,334 in its domestic market Germany. Doing the simple math, it means the car you’re looking at costs €115,834. To put that into perspective, it’s approximately only €9,000 cheaper than the bigger 612-hp, AWD-equipped E63 S Estate.
For the kind of money the tuner is asking for the upgrade, one could buy a base C-Class C160 in Deutschland provided the dealer hands out a decent discount of about €2,000. To sweeten the deal, Wimmer will also throw in a KW coilover suspension, sports catalysts, and a pair of high-performance air filters. There’s no word about whether the flashy wrap is included, but we could do without the 1990s body graphics…

Fulminate C 63 AMG S with 801 PS by WIMMER RST
For over 25 years, the main focus of WIMMER Rennsporttechnik in Solingen is the electronic and mechanical performance increase. Whether the optimization is implemented by chip tuning, turbo charger conversion or requires an intervention into the complex compressor technique – it is crucial for the team to carry out the client's wish, by all means, if it's technically possible. Also exhaust systems, chassis technology, high-performance brakes - and much more - are the daily “bread” of the crew.
WIMMER Rennsporttechnik proudly presents an power optimized Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG S with an virtually inexhaustible forward thrust. Well, the regular cubic capacity of 3.982 cm³ remains untouched.
After various alterations, the already mighty engine - original power 375 kW (= 510 PS) and 700 Nm torque - is now operating with 589 kW (= 801 PS) and 900 Nm torque. The power/weight ratio has been improved, as well, from 3,25 down to 2,07 kg/PS and will launch the Vmax from 250 up to impressive 320 km/h (limited as per tire speed homologation).
The fulminate performance optimization – called WIMMER RS level V – can be achieved by various steps, as well as an software adjustment. First of all, the turbo charger got an upgrade, followed by the revision of the nozzles, the fuel pump and the inter-cooler. The installation of an additional water pump took place as well. In addition to the handcrafted WIMMER-RS stainless steel exhaust system with throttle system for a fee of 2.990 EUR, a Y-pipe with sports catalysts for 3.500 EUR has been mounted. Two BMC high-performance air filters (each 100 EUR), as well as a KW coilover suspension version 3 (2.499 EUR) and the wheel-tire-combination of BBS rims in in 9x20 with 245/30-20 tires on the front axle and 10x20 with 265/20-30 on the rear axle for a fee of 3.300 EUR are worth mention. The total fee for this conversion amounts to 29.500 EUR.
