In its standard version (not the new GT one), the SLS 63 AMG delivers a total of 571 HP. This amount of power is good, but where Mercedes feared to go in terms of pushing the power, German tuner, mcchip-dkr, dove headfirst into it. Their new tuning package is called the MC700, which clearly hints at the vehicle’s upgraded power level.
The new MC700 compressor kit is available in two upgrade levels. The first one includes a mechanically driven compressor and a performance-enhancing high-end exhaust system developed in cooperation with Capristo Exhaust Systems. These additions get the 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine’s power level up to an impressive 680 HP and 567 lb-ft of torque. The extra 109 HP will set customers back 69,900 Euros (about $88,150 at the current exchange rates).
The second upgrade level will only be available for the export versions and include additional sports catalyzers and friskier stage 4 software. If a customer is willing to pay 78,999 Euros (about $99,600 at the current rates), then they will be privy to a total of 706 HP and 584 lbs-ft.
