German tuner also adds its own 20-inch wheels in a 5 double-spoke design. The Carlsson E-CK63 RS does the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 4.5 seconds.

German tuner Carlsson has an even more powerful version of the E 63 AMG out now.

The E-CK63 RS, as Carlsson has christened it, boasts a hefty improvement in horsepower over the standard E 63 AMG. Power ratings on the 6.3 liter (6,208cc) V8 engine are dialed up from 525 (386 kW) to 585 hp (430 kW) while maximum torque goes from 630 to 695 Nm. Carlsson claims to have accomplished the considerable rise in power through a "re-engineering" of the engine. That includes changes to the engine management and exhaust systems.

Carlsson also provides an aerodynamic package made out of polyurethane (PU-RIM) which includes front and rear skirts, extended wings and side moldings. New wheels are also added - 20-inch 1/5 REVO rims in a 5 double-spoke design.

The new wheels, the tinkering under the hood and the aerodynamic paneling help shave off 3/10ths of a second off the 0 to 100 km/h sprint, now done in 4.5 seconds.

On the inside come some cabin upgrades to take the E 63 AMG to a complimentary level of luxury to go with its near 600 horses. The illuminated floor mats with the Carlsson logo are probably what will stand out the most. But there is also a leather and ultra-suede finish that adorns the seats, steering wheel and the inside of the doors.

No price on the Carlsson E-CK63 RS is yet available.
