The Mercedes Benz C63 AMG is a fantastic automobile. It is a compact, high power sports car capable of incredible performance numbers and has a set of bold boxed fenders to match. However there is a group of automotive enthusiasts that will always want more for this badass baby Benz. If you happen to be one of those individuals then the Edo Competition C63 is something that you might want to have a gander at.
The German tuning house has worked their magic on the entry level AMG model with a customization program that upgrades the output of the hand built motor by almost 100 HP, the 6.2 Liter V8 now makes 555 HP and 501 lb-ft of torque.
In order to make this much power Edo equipped the C63 AMG with a new high-performance exhaust system, free flowing exhaust headers, a pair of high-flow catalytic converters, new sport air filters that allow the recalibrated ECU to make the most of the naturally aspirated power plant. Adding a little show to all that go, Edo included a set of ultra-lightweight 19 inch sport wheels shod in very sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. The considerable performance gains allow the Edo C63 to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.3 seconds and can hit a new top speed of 199 MPH.

The verdict was unanimous: 457 horsepower and 600 Nm (442 ft-lb) are not enough.

As a matter of principle, all recalibrations done by edo competition are verified on the dynamometer to document the true power output.
The facts about the exceptional edo C 63: 6.3 liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine, 408 kW (555 hp), 680 Nm (501 ft-lb) of torque, 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds, top speed: 199 mph – there’s no better way to sum up the capabilities of the edo C 63!
The high-performance exhaust featuring butterfly valves is as aurally impressive as it is advanced, monitoring the exhaust backpressure in real-time. The accompanying controller is programmable and the integrated 70 mm exhaust flaps open at a predetermined level of backpressure. The advantage of this system is that it provides a good amount of torque at low revs without restricting the maximum power at the top end. The high-flow exhaust system is made from 100% stainless steel and the stock-like dual exhaust tips underscore the expressive styling.
To provide superior levels of grip, edo competition offers exclusive wheel/tire combinations. Using a new wheel design the C 63 was equipped with a set of ultra-lightweight 19 in. sport wheels shod in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. Front: 235/35 19, Rear: 265/30 19
