Väth V63RS Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you thought the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG was a top performer, well... you were right. It is. But everything's got room for improvement, and Väth Automobiltechnik has made that room for the Benz supersled with a similar V63RS package as it fitted to its C-Class-based offering.

Starting under the hood, Väth bored out the cylinders, fitted new pistons, valves, cam shafts, intake and tweaked the ECU for an extra 87 horsepower, bringing the total up to 605. The result? 0-100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in a scant 4.1 seconds, and a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph).

The tuning house has also fitted a body kit complete with new grille, spoilers front and rear and a carbon fiber diffuser, 20-inch modular rims, a suspension dropped by 30 millimeters, and huge 390mm brake discs gripped by eight-piston calipers up front. Nice work if you can get it, but you'll need plenty of cash on hand if you do. Details in the press release after the jump.

PRESS RELEASE

Energy shot for the new E-Class - E63 AMG with 605 HP

After high-performance cure at VÄTH Automobiltechnik, the new E-Class E63 AMG is exactly the right choice for those who like adrenaline rush. This E-Class vehicle is clearly a winner type - smart and spry, which becomes instantly obvious looking at huge 20" forged three-part alloy rims (8,211.00 Euro for a set) with individually designed 245/30-20 or 285/25-20 high performance tyres and with sportive exterior carbon package.

Thanks to the new VÄTH grill for Euro 797.00 without the Mercedes star the face of the new E-Class has got a sportive outfit, but still keeps its face.

The powerful silhouette with the wedgelike rising side line and the muscular car tail is furthermore supported by a boot spoiler lip for Euro 333.00 and a carbon-diffuser for Euro 1,773.00. The distinctively arrow-shaped front bumper has become still more sportive now thanks to the carbon front apron suspension for Euro 1,416.00. The VÄTH optics package warrants for the perfect harmony of dynamics and sportiveness.

As a matter of tradition, VÄTH Automobiltechnik guarantees also a high level of road safety. The road holding capacity has been improved by VÄTH by lowering the airmatics by about 30 mm (Euro 821.00).

But not only elegance counts here, but also hard facts, such as an output of 605 hp, a torque of 690 Nm and maximum speed of 340 km/h. After engine retrofitting made by VÄTH for 19.635,00 Euro, the AMG V8 drive unit provides for an acceleration of 4,1 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h. Engine retrofitting includes special forged pistons, valves, sports cam shafts, as well as big intake and exhaust valves. In addition, the crank drive has been improved, the cylinder head channels have been enlarged by milling and engine software has been updated.

Without regard to its sportive appearance, tuned by VÄTH E-Class 63 AMG sports sedan offers comfort inside. For this purpose VÄTH Automobiltechnik offers a carbon interior set for Euro 2,737.00 and velour floor mats with the embroidered VÄTH logo for Euro 226.00.

Sports braking system with 390 mm brake discs and with 8 pistons fixed caliper for the front axle is already available for Euro 5,355.00.

      Nice! The rear carbon valance looks a little tacky though...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Wow, that Benz looks really good, I like what they've done to it. Perfect sleeper imo.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I just for once wish they would put a rear diffuser on a car that is actually functional. And yes i understand how exposed functional diffusers are but you're undoubtedly going to be paying top dollar for a tuned car anyway
      • 4 Years Ago
      WHAT THE F.... is the point.
      • 4 Years Ago
      strange that the BONE STOCK CTS-V is quicker.
        • 4 Years Ago
        sorry NinetySixVert i sand corrected 62 mph not 60. which makes no difference in my argument
        • 4 Years Ago
        CTS-V is a smaller car, the E-Class is a larger sedan, not really a fair comparison.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @mqa:
        Other than the E63 being a bit wider. There's not much difference in size.
        length
        E63: 191.7"
        CTS-V: 191.6"

        width
        E63: 75.9"
        CTS-V: 72.5"

        @franz:

        Mileage is a wash.
        CTS-V: 14/19 mpg
        E63: 13/20 mpg

        Performance numbers, other than top speed, favor the CTS-V

        0-60
        CTS-V: 4.3
        E63: 4.6

        1/4 mile
        CTS-V: 12.4
        E63: 12.7

        The E63 is a fabulous machine, but given the slight edge in performance numbers and huge edge in pricing, I'll take the CTS-V. How many times are you going to have access to the two miles of flat, perfect track it takes to reach that top speed.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Didn't realize the CTS-V can do 211MPH.
        • 4 Years Ago
        According to Motor Trend, which recently did a comparo of the CTS-V and E63, the E63 is worth the premium because it is the better car overall. But the CTS-V is the value king. Everything else was nearly identical, and the E63 won.

        But that's only if you wanna listen to people who, you know, have actually DRIVEN both cars...
        • 4 Years Ago
        ps. the Benz is slightly heavier, with less power (still talking about bone stock) and gets a few mpg better than the Caddy, but the way I see it, in the real world there's really nothing between them when it comes to performance.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @ Arumage:

        Seems like we got our numbers from different places, but here are Motor Trend's comparison test results as published this month:

        0-60:
        CTS-V - 4.1 sec
        E63 - 4.1 sec

        1/4 Mile:
        CTS-V - 12.4 sec @ 117.9mph
        E63 - 12.5 sec @ 114.5 mph

        Braking is close, with the Caddy taking 106ft to stop from 60, The slightly heavier Merc did it in 108ft. Handling is just as close: on MT's figure 8, the figures for the Caddy are 25.0 sec @ 0.80 g (avg). The E63: 24.8 sec @ 0.79 g (avg). Both pulled .95g on the skid pad. Road course lap times: Caddy, 1:29.7 sec vs 1:29.6 sec for the Merc. Like I said, there's barely gonna be anything between them in real world performance.

        Also, the EPA mileage listed on MT is 12/18 mpg for the Caddy, and 13/20 mpg for the E63... that's why I said it gets better mileage. No arguing the price difference, but by the numbers, I'd call it pretty even.

      If Darth Vader had a commute.

      I long for this car with the kind of burning lust and envy that drove Menelaus to command all the armies of Greece to the doorstep of Troy.
      • 4 Years Ago
      For once, a tuned Mercedes that doesn't look like tacky trash. The front-end is positively tasteful.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like it. It's nice to see tuners exercise a bit of restraint in light of recent (garish) mods by many german tuners.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Geez,....you'd think someone would clean that thing before they take hi-res pictures of it.

      Anyways,..still awesome.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Kudos for upping the power without using blowers and for not making the thing half-exposed cf and wild body-kits, like many other German tuners do. Now, do you have an upcoming version of the SLS?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Can someone add up all the individual costs and come up with a total for this beast? In American please =)
      • 4 Years Ago
      Finally! An aftermarket tuner that doesn't make the Mercedes its "improving" ugly...I want it...
