With 510 horsepower under the hood, the Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is no doubt one of the most powerful sports coupes out there. Sometimes, however, even the most powerful car can get even more powerful, as long as the right tuner comes into picture. Vath, a German tuning company, decided that the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series can do even better.
To improve upon near perfection, Varth installed a "V63 Supercharged" compressor-system that includes a new water-intercooler system, fuel cooler and, of course, the corresponding fine-tuning of the engine’s electrical system. All these updates, along with a new flow-optimized exhaust system, have increased the engine output up to an impressive 756 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.
As a result, the sports coupe will now sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 217 mph. However, these updates come with a pretty huge price tag – €49.310 ($65,000 at the current exchange rates).
The C63 AMG also sports a set of 20-inch, three-piece forced wheels wrapped in high performance tires. Also installed is a high-performance brake system that features 405 mm (15.94-inch) discs on the front axle. A new suspension system that can adjust the ride by 20 to 65 mm (0.78 to 2.56 inches) also comes as a part of the package.
Lastly, Varth wrapped it all up with an aerodynamic package and a new black radiator grill without the usual Mercedes star. The interior gets a new sport steering wheel in leather/leather design and a new speedometer with 400 km/h extension (248 mph).

With 380 kW / 517 hp and maximum torque of 620 Nm the C 63 AMG Coupé „Black Series“ is no exception to this maxim. If that is not enough, one has to set out to VÄTH or at least to establish contact there. Extremely renowned tuner has received such a vehicle for refining and the result is an impressive masterpiece of VÄTH engineering.
The core of the refining is the engine conversion into compressor-system „V63 Supercharged“ with VÄTH water-intercooler system, fuel cooler and und corresponding fine-tuning of motor electronic as well as increase of Vmax. The flow-optimised exhaust system consists of a special exhaust manifold, which is joined to sport-catalytic system (for export only). An X-Pipe with sport rears, which can be activated by valve control or touch of a button, rounds off the installation without tailpipes. All this generates breathtaking performance of 556kW = 756 hp and 800 Nm from 6.208 cm³ displacement, which lets the driver’s body tremble with adrenaline. With an impressive acceleration to 100 km/h in 3, 6 seconds and, with corresponding tyre approval, Vmax of 350 km/h, 49.310, - Euro plus VAT are to get over Investment.
This pure power is useless without effective traction, so VÄTH installed a special model of the complete chassis V63 Supercharged. As a result not only hardness and height between 20-65mm are adjustable, but also compression and rebound stages can be modified when installed. Thus, optimal and safe handling combined with high comfort on the road, as well as on the racetrack is possible. To ensure so important road grip, in-house three-pieced forced wheels with tires in size of 9x20 inches with 265/30-20 tire equipment on the front or 11x20 inches with 305/25-20 at the rear are fitted. The brake is also an important element for heading traction and handling, which is protected by VÄTH high performance brake system with 405mm brake disks on the front axle and steel braided lines.
VÄTH has performed only small modifications on the aggressive sport optics of white V63 Coupé Supercharged Black Series with aerodynamic package. A Black radiator grill without star and previously mentioned 20 - inch forced wheels in black with elegant accents round off the perfect look.
Inside the driver keeps the situation under control through sport steering wheels in leather/leather design (optionally with carbon or noble wood applications). In addition he confronts with strenuous speeds via combination instrument with VÄTH-Supercharged-speedometer extension to 400 km/h.
