German tuner VÄTH is ready to work its magic on the Mercedes-AMG C63 and take it to a new level of power.

If it weren’t for the custom wheels and lowered ride height, you’d be tempted to say this is a run-of-the-mill C63 S. However, in reality we are dealing with a stronger version prepared by VÄTH. The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine has gone through a series of upgrades and it’s now capable of developing 600 hp (448 kW) and 598 lb-ft (810 Nm) of torque. It costs $4,291 / €3,950 (+ $380 / €350 for mounting) and enables the high-performance sedan to hit a top speed of 199 mph (320 kph).

For those in need of even more power, VÄTH has a V 63 RS kit that will bump the motor to 680 hp (500 kW) thanks to optimized turbochargers and a new down pipe.

Aside from the extra punch, the C63 can also gain a suspension lowering kit that brings the car closer to the road by as much as 1.5 inches (40 mm) in exchange for $396 (€365). Those wheels we mentioned come in either silver or black and measure 20 inches on both axles with 255/30 ZR20 front and 275/30 ZR20 rear tires.

Other goodies being offered include a new 360-kph speedometer for $1,401 (€1,290), aluminum pedal set priced at $163 (€150) and black velour floor mats available at an additional $206 (€190).

Note: Pricing does not include VAT.
