The Black Series models are the coolest vehicles coming from the Mercedes factory these days. They look great, plus they are powerful and fast. They pretty much deliver everything you could ask for from a sports car.

A base C63 AMG Black Series is powered by a 6.3-liter, V-8 engine that delivers a total of 510 horsepower, and it sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, but the folks at GAD Motors decided that the C63 AMG Black Series is ripe for a power upgrade.

GAD updated the engine with its in-house turbo upgrade, upped the rev limiter to 7,000 rpm, and upgraded the cooling system. As a result, the V-8 engine now delivers a total of 850 horsepower and 995 pound-feet of torque.

This extra power helps the Black Series sports coupe sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.8 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 23.5 with full aero package or 22.7 seconds without the AMG aero package.

In order to handle the extra power, GAD revised the C63 AMG Black Series’ gearbox to include a modified MCT (multi-clutch). The engine sends the power to all four wheels through the car’s standard 4MATIC system and now has faster shifts between all the gears.

Other additions include a new suspension system developed by KW Suspension and new Carbon Ceramics brakes that drag the sports coupe to a stop from 100 km/h (62 mph) in 33 meters (108 feet) and from 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 132 meters (433 feet).

The price for this upgrade is €180,250 (about $250k at the current exchange rates).
