Fresh images of the Carlsson CK63S have been released. The C 63 AMG-based modified sedan is capable of producing 565hp and 685Nm of torque.
Carlsson has released new pictures of the CK63S. The C 63 AMG is used as the basis of the tuning package which was first announced last October. Some modifications however, were made to ensure the two cars were quite different in looks and performance.
Taking the standard 6.2-litre AMG V8, Carlsson engineers squeezed out 565hp (416kW) and 685Nm of torque from it. The stock vehicle makes use of "only" 457hp (336kW) and 600Nm. Carlsson says the 0 - 100km/h dash goes by in 3.8 seconds and the speedometer runs out of breath at a limited 300km/h (186mph).
The aerodynamic kit placed on the exterior is listed as: front and rear spoiler and spoiler lip, oval stainless steel tailpipes, a sports rear silencer and lightweight wheels. Occupants experience the ultra-suede material on the doors and on the sides of the seats. The driver meanwhile gets to play with aluminium pedals and a sports steering wheel covered in either leather or ultra-suede.
The CK63S was intended as a car of two personalities; a family cruiser that can take up to five adults or a sharp handling tool for track days. Ex-racing driver Ellen Lohr who also works as a Carlsson brand ambassador was involved in developing the latter character so Carlsson was pretty confident it would deliver the goods.
