Click above for high-res gallery of the Väth V63RS

There's no shortage of Mercedes-Benz tuners, and we're used to having news tips in our email box regarding BRABUS, Kleemann, Lorinser, Carlsson, etc. That's why we were curious when we received a tip about a company taht we'd never heard of called Väth. The German aftermarket company has products for the entire Mercedes-Benz lineup, the latest of which is the V63RS Clubsport based on the C63 AMG that you see here. Väth essentially leaves the exterior untouched and focuses on the performance including an upgrade of the V8 to 585 bhp and 509 lb-ft torque that will power the car to a top speed of 202 mph. Other upgrades available include a sport suspension, high performance brakes, 19-inch wheels, and sport seats. Complete cars are available at a hefty 125,000 Euros, although components can be purchased individually, as well. Just like the BRABUS Bullit Black Arrow we showed yesterday, black seems to be the color of choice.

      P.S.

      I really like the black on black.

      I like most mercedes, and i certainly like all these jacked up models that come out.
      But, i'm curious to know the actual demand for these worked over luxury cars, at these ridiculously absurd prices.

      I'm guessing their big in Europe, because other than few different models of amg, i never see anything like these tuners on the road.

        Modifying Mercedes is bigger in Europe than it is over here, for sure, though even over there it's not as big as modifying BMWs, I don't think. Why? Because perception is 9/10ths of reality, and I think Mercedes are largely perceived as boring, flabby luxobarges with no potential; a German Buick, if you will.

        The irony here is that both Buick (at least in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, and then with the Turbo V6 in the 80s) and Mercedes produce(d) some very capable, very robust engines and-at least in the case of Mercedes-chassis that are every bit equal to, and in some cases superior to, their competition. But hey... It makes it all that much more amusing when the guy in the next lane over at a stoplight finds out that his perception doesn't mesh with reality...

      Love the car, but there is a typo in the article:

      "That's why we were curious when we received a tip about a company taht we'd never heard of called Väth."

      the second "that" should be "that" not "taht"
