The CLS 63 AMG is a thing of beauty, yet it has a beast under its hood. Some people, however, would like their CLS to show a little more of its beastly side from the outside. To help satisfy the appetites of this group, SR Auto Group has just released a series of modifications to help make this powerful Benz a little more intimidating from the outside. They even have a pretty cool name for it: Project Maximus!
This Mercedes CLS 63 AMG boasts a Black Bison body kit by Wald International. Included in this kit is a stylish front bumper that has large side air intakes and a wide-mouth lower grille. Also integrated in the bumper are LED daytime running lights. This Black Bison kit also boasts new front fenders, which feature large heat extractors with black louvers and chrome strips, just behind the front wheels.
Down the side of this customized CLS 63 AMG, there is a set of side skirts that give just enough character to the Benz without taking away from its luxurious appearance. The rear end of this high-powered Mercedes boasts a bumper with louvered vents behind the rear wheels. Integrated with the bumper is a rear diffuser made of black plastic that gives the rear end a little contrast. On each side of the rear end is a dual-oval exhaust tip that exit from cutouts in the bumper. Finishing off the back end is a large trunk-mounted, lip-style spoiler.
On each corner of the CLS 63 AMG is a 20-inch Wald Renovatio alloy wheel wrapped in performance rubber. The rims have a slight contrast to them, as the face of the rim and its lip is done in chrome, but the edge of each of the 26 spokes is painted silver.
The model that SR Auto Group used for this build features the AMG Performance Pack, which boosts the 5.5-liter V-8 engine to 557 horsepower. SR Auto Group left this engine as is, so if you choose this build, the manufacturer’s warranty remains intact.
Overall, SR Auto Group did a nice job of adding just enough character and sport to the CLS 63 AMG without overdoing it and making it look over the top.
