2011 Wimmer Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG – Click above for high-res image gallery
Regardless of any meddling from the aftermarket, the Mercedes-Benz
C63 AMG is quite a handful in its stock form. That said, Wimmer hasn't exactly built a reputation for leaving well enough alone, and has now applied its expertise to the C63 AMG
. The results are ludicrous.
Wimmer reworked the heads, added more aggressive camshafts, a bigger down pipe, high-flow catalytic converters, air intake and added a full stainless steel exhaust to the car's 6.2-liter V8. After all was said and done, the C63 pushed out 601 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. Wimmer has also removed the top speed limiter, which means the car will hit 203 miles per hour.
The car gets 8.5-by-19-inch BBS CH-R wheels up front and 9.5-by-19-inchers out back, wrapped in Dunlop tires. Keeping those huge meats planted is a fully customized suspension developed in-house by Wimmer.
The mod list to the C63 is impressive, and the work doesn't come cheap. The engine work alone in the Wimmer C63 AMG rings the register at €19,900 – about $28,000 USD based on current conversion rates. Add another €3,600 ($5,000) to include the suspension in the performance package.
FULL FORCE BY WIMMER - C63 AMG PERFORMANCE
When it comes to progressive vehicle development, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG from Munich (or
Ingolstadt / Neckarsulm, to be more specific) could gain the victory over its competitors. Even in the serial configuration, this car allows the "chauffeur" to experience unusual feelings and makes the driver both a connoisseur and a winner. WIMMER Rennsporttechnik from Solingen has personified the driving fun once again – as it should be after the company name addition – breathing even more performance.
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 19900 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, right?
