Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG tweaked by Vath

Bavarian tuning firm Vath got their hands on the Mercedes CLS63 AMG and upgrades its chassis, exterior, and engine. Packages start at $1,000.

The highlight of the effort is on the V63RS kit which tunes the ECU of the 5.5L V8 engine and its Vmax chips resulting to an output of 649 horsepower and a monstrous torque of 708 pound feet. The team from Vath shared that the improved engine can get the CLS63 AMG running from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. The top speed was improved to 202 mph.

The Vath V63RS kit has a tag price of $17,700 which also includes an exhaust system fabricated from stainless steel and a cooling system using charge-air.

Owners can also get the upgrades separately. The most basic of these upgrades is the suspension kit which lowers the ride by as much as 1.6 inches. Another option is to get a set of forged ally wheels hugged by 265/30ZR20 wheels in front and 305/25ZR20 for the rear.

To improve the aerodynamics of the car, you can get a deck-lid spoiler, front airdam, rear diffuser, and under-floor extension.

The interior upgrades involve a sport steering wheel in leather, wood, or carbon, accents made of carbon-fiber, and tachometer which has extended range.
