Carlsson CK63 RS Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG
The most dynamic business limousine by Mercedes-Benz is the E 63 AMG. The company AMG which is located in Affalterbach skilfully combines 525 hp (386 kW) with very luxurious interior equipment. But for Carlsson this was neither dynamic nor luxurious enough. The automobile manufacturer from Merzig, Germany presents the new E-CK63 RS based on the E 63 AMG and thereby discloses the technical possibilities.
The core part of the refinement is the entirely re-engineered V8-engine. The Carlsson engineers accomplished to boost the performance from 525 hp (386 kW) to impressive 585 hp (430 kW) without changing the cubic capacity of 6.2 litres. Also, the Mercedes specialists from Merzig increase the maximum torque from 630 to 695 Newton metres. With a perfected motor management, an optimised exhaust system and most accurate adjustments, the E-class top model by Carlsson accelerates from zero to 100 kph in only 4.5 seconds. This is three tenths of a second less than the acceleration values of the E 63 AMG.
The head designer Rolf Schepp transferred the performance of the car to its appearance. His complete aerodynamics package containing front skirt, optionally with front spoiler lip RS in real carbon, side mouldings and rear spoiler reveals the power of the Carlsson E-class at first sight. All of these components are made of polyurethane (PU-RIM) which guarantees perfect fit and highest stability. At the same time all aerodynamics components render an increasing downforce during rising speeds and therefore ensure the optimal power transmission onto the road and safety even in the limit range. The rear skirt inlet of polyurethane (PU-RIM) grabs the stainless steel end pipes of the exhaust system on both sides and perfectly finishes the visual metamorphosis. When driving calmly, the exhaust system contains itself in a pleasant way, but once the driver accelerates, it presents a powerful sound backdrop which ideally matches the driving characteristics.
But Carlsson does not only enhance the performance and improves the aerodynamics. The revolutionary refinement of the E 63 AMG also shows in the new wheel design. With the Carlsson wheel 1/5 REVO in 8.5 and 10.5x20 inches, the automobile manufacturer fits a trend-setting, one-piece light alloy wheel. The wheel has five double spokes, one is painted in matt black and the others sparkle with a high-gloss polished surface and are aimed at the self-confident driver.
With the E-CK63 RS Carlsson in every respect presents a refined E-class. The Mercedes expert increases the athleticism, luxury and individualisation of the strongest business limousine. In addition, Carlsson confirms the renowned quality with a three-year Carlsson warranty for its own works.
