When it comes to progressive vehicle development, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG from Munich, more specifically Ingolstadt / Neckarsulm, ranks at the top among its competitors. Even in the serial configuration, this car allows the driver to exceptional driving experience and makes the them both a connoisseur and a winner. Wimmer Rennsporttechnik from Solingen has managed to personify the term “driving fun” with their Mercedes C63 AMG version. Wimmer Rennsporttechnik has managed to breath even more performance into the 6.3 liter C-Class.
Modification of the V8 Motor with standard 6.3-liter engine includes above all things sports camshaft and the cylinder head reworked. Manifold, down pipe and high flow catalytic converters are the next stages. After optimization of the air intake, installation of a stainless steel exhaust system and a sport air filter adaptation by Wimmer-Motorelektronik goes without saying. The result of all these measures is powerful 601 hp and 720 Nm of torque – a by no means despised value. The total result is ultimately power to weight ratio of 2.79 kg / hp. As a result, in comparison with the approved Vmax of 306 km/h, the “unlocked” Vmax value can now reach 329 km/h. The engine conversion by Wimmer costs 19,900 Euro.
The fact that the C63 AMG no longer has the original wheel/tire combination is needless to say. The choice dropped on BBS CH-R alloy wheels in dimensions of 8.5 or 9.5 x 19 inches. The car is fitted with the Dunlop tires in the dimensions of 235/35-19 at the front axle and 265/35-19 – at the rear axle. The in-house suspension proposed at 3600 Euros was installed again.
The men from Wimmer Rennsporttechnik showcase once again present the perfect conversion of a vehicle, in which it is very difficult to resist temptation to step into and take it to the road.
