2009 Mercedes C63 AMG by AVUS Performance
Avus Performance has modified the already awesome Mercedes Benz C63 AMG with their stage 3 engine package bringing output up to 585 HP and increasing top speed to 198.8 MPH. That much power and speed requires added attention to the braking system so Avus installed a set of 8 piston calipers to bring the vehicle to a halt.
Press release after the jump.
After the latest two publications from AVUS PERFORMANCE they are now showing that they are modifying not only cars from Ingolstadt. Their latest project car is a complete conversion based on the current Mercedes C63 AMG.
Understatement was something the tuner has focussed on again. Besides the original 19“ AMG multi-spoke wheels (20“ optionally) first thing that stands out is the lower suspension setting which has been achieved by changing the standard springs – coilovers are avaiable as an option. Further visual improvements can be seen only at a second sight. The mirror covers, the front grille, the roof, the mercedes star and the bar below have been painted in black which look as if it is a factory option by mercedes. Additionally the exhaust system has been changed to a stainless steel system which lets the car to sound the attack.
Of course visual improvements are not bad at all but what about power figures? For the C63 AMG AVUS PERFORMANCE offers three power stages. The current project car has stage 3 with 585bhp (457bhp) and 740Nm (600Nm). Top speed increases to 320km/h depending on tire approval. To properly decelerate the car 8 piston brake calipers with 380mm diameter are offered.
