Edo Competition Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Wagon
Restraint is not necessarily one of the virtues that edo competition claims for itself. That quickly becomes clear when looking at this version of the current generation AMG C-Class.
Designed specifically for the high-revving engine in the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Wagon, edo competition is offering a power kit that’s in a class of its own. It consists of a new high-performance exhaust system, exhaust headers, high-flow catalytic converters, new air filters, revised engine electronics and a removal of the top speed governor. The result is an enormous power increase from the stock output of 457 horsepower / 336 kW to 600 horsepower / 441 kW. At the same time the torque output growns from 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) to 680 Nm (501 lb-ft). As will all engine modications done by edo competition, a dynamometer is used to carry out the tuning work, and the actual output is documented accurately.
An impressive and awe-inspiring soundtrack is provided by the new exhaust with butterfly valves. The high-performance exhaust system features a programmable electronic controller that monitors the level of back pressure and opens the integrated 70 mm butterfly valves when a certain threshold is exceeded. The exhaust is made entirely from stainless steel and the chromed exhaust tips that mimic the factory pieces add to the car’s expressive styling.
The extreme speeds that the edo C63 AMG T-Model is capable of require specific modifications to its wheels. 19-inch Michelin high-performance tires allow for a top speed exceeding 340 km/h (211 mph). The 235/35 ZR 19 front tires are mounted on 8.5Jx19 multi-piece wheels, while 265/30 ZR 19 tires on 9.5Jx19 multi-piece wheels are used on the rear axle.
Naturally, the interior wasn’t neglected as it makes up a large part of the car’s visual appeal. Throughout the cabin, carbon fiber applications have been used to enhance its esthetic qualities.
On customer request the interior can be individualized using leather, cloth, fine woods or lacquer, high-quality metal applications or carbon fiber. Steering wheels, dashboards, center consoles, pedals, seats or even the whole interior can be customized, and the possibilities are virtually limitless.
