The Mercedes CL63 AMG already offers plenty of what customers look for in a sports car: aggressive design, powerful engine, and a Mercedes "Silver Arrows" logo. But if enough just isn’t enough for you, then German tuning firm, Vath, is offering a new performance package for the CL63 AMG that will leave smiles on your faces and holes in your pockets.

Before getting into the performance upgrade, Vath added a few exterior and interior modifications. There’s a carbon fiber body kit that includes a radiator cover, a rear diffuser, and a boot lid spoiler. The car also gets a new set of 20" lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in 255/35 ZR20 tires at the front and 255/35 ZR20 tires at the back. As for the interior, Vath is offering a number of options, including plenty of leather and trim choices.

Then there’s the performance package. Using their new V63S tuning kit and software upgrade plus an ECU remap, Vath was able to take the CL63 AMG’s 5.5-liter twin turbo V8 engine and bump up the output from 536 horsepower and 590 lb/ft of torque all the way up to a staggering 630 horsepower and 686 lb/ft of torque. These numbers translate to a faster 0-62 mph time of just 4.3 seconds and an increased top speed of 187 mph, up from the standard model’s electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

It is not so impressive at all, but I must say that I love the fact that it is so practical to use on my everyday transportation and very reliable on the road.

Not impressive with its silver color scheme, It would surely much attractive with other color. Reason why it doesn’t look stunning.

It looks very ordinary, looking on its pictures and reading the article. It seems that it didn’t have any special features.

Not so bad for the most well-known car dealer. Mercedes still remains their elegance and stiffness of their models which is very impressive.

The styling of the car is kind of impressive. And the good thing about the tuning company was it can boost the performance of its engine into an amazing figure. It great to know that there’s an increase on its top speed as well.

The exterior of the car look so familiar. I can’t find an stunning on its design. However, the produced power output of the car is so excellence. I was surprise that a twin turbo can deliver such amount.
