We’ve all had our ordeal with cars that just have enough power to please us but not enough to really blow our heads clean off our shoulders. For some people, the Mercedes C63 AMG fits this description. Sure, 457 horsepower is quite impressive in the C-Class’ skin, but couldn’t Mercedes have squeezed out a little extra power? Fortunately, an aftermarket company like mcchip-dkr can come into the picture and tack on that added power.
There aren’t a lot of tuning firms that can brag about being considered an expert in aftermarket Mercedes programs. But mcchip can and it’s got a roster full of impressive Merc projects to show for it. It’s latest work for the C63 AMG follows in that tradition, further adding credence to its status as a sage in the art of Mercedes tuning.
mcchip’s new program isn’t just limited to the massive engine upgrade. The company also beefed up the C63 AMG’s aesthetic and aerodynamic qualities with a comprehensive body kit. You can immediately tell that the Mercedes sports coupe looks different. Notice those aerodynamic "whiskers" on the front bumper? How about the new bonnet with the subtle scoops to aid in circulating air into and out of the engine compartment?

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG mc8xx By McChip-DKR in detail
Engineers at mcchip-dkr created a body kit specifically to enhance the C63 AMG’s look and performance attributes. A bevy of carbon-fiber components, including front splitters, side mirrors, and flaps were all installed to carry the look of the Black Series line. Even the front and rear bumpers, the hood, the wings, and the side skirts were carefully repackaged to follow this objective.
Under the hood lies s the heart of mcchip’s mc8xxx program for the C63 AMG. We told you that the German tuner promised to increase the output of the sports sedan, but what we haven’t told you is that mcchip exceeded our expectations by adding newly adapted software and improving manifold pressure through increased air suction and a blower. Also added in is a enlarged oil cooler and water pump for good measure.
The result is nothing short of incredible. There’s now 830 horsepower under that hood, which just a little over 70 horsepower shy of doubling the stock output.
Mcchip has also added in a set of 19-inch OZ-Racing Superleggera rims, a KW Clubsport suspension, and high-performance brake discs and pads to help rein in this powerful sedan.
Specialized upon software development for POWER and ECO optimization, special solutions for tuning measures, Vmax liberation or limitation, switch time shortening or software harmonization for racing vehicles, the located at Mechernich, south-west from Cologne, mcchip-dkr company disposes on a 4x4 high performance test stand type Super Flow SF880 for measuring of very powerful cars, but also deeply lowered vehicles.
This time, the house own project called mc8xx is on trial. Behind this „hides“ an 8 cylinders Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG with serial 457 HP of power and 600 Nm of torque. This project means the continued development of „mc780“ stage with newly adapted software harmonizing, manifold pressure augmentation by means of optimized air suction and compressor gear.
After re-equipment by compressor technology, made by the mcchip-dkr engine surgeons, the bolide splutters now enormous 830 HP and likewise much of newtonmeters of max. torque. The highlights are the bigger oil cooler, XXL water cooler (special edition for the compressor cooling system) and the bigger water pump for the charge air system. Additionally, a made by Drexler differential lock warrants for proper traction values.
In order to fit the design of the sportster to its performance, the mcchip-dkr crew has chosen a body kit of the corresponding special model of Black Series, involving the bumpers in front and rear, the car bonnet, all wings and side skirts and – made of carbon – flaps, side mirrors, front splitters and the rear diffusor, front and rear lamps coming from the W204-Facelift model.
The OZ-Racing Superleggera rims in 10x19” on the front and 11x19” on the rear axle are fitted by adequate tires. Besides the installation of a KW Clubsport chassis, there are to be mentioned the high performance brake discs with endless pads, in order to be able to control this power at any time. Rests to note that either engine and passenger compartment are equipped by a lifeline fire extinction installation. The powerful machine is painted in semi-gloss ibis white – of Audi.
The whole „mc8xx“ project has been successful, including MOT-certificate. One can be curious to see the final „mc9xx“ which is still in stage of planning and development …
