For those who are under the impression that the current Mercedes-AMG C63 S is slightly underperforming as it should, Manhart Performance has created the CR 700 of 711 CV.

Unit M177 4.0-liter biturbo in today’s car produces 510 CV and 700 Nm par on the S version, but Manhart has managed to extract substantially more performance through a variety of hardware and software changes.

This includes an upgraded high-pressure fuel pump, less restrictive downpipes, and upgraded turbochargers as major upgrades, with an ECU tuning and transmission booster ensuring everything runs in harmony. The cost of the kit as a whole is 17.999 euros, but you can also opt for a new Manhart exhaust system with the downpipes with or without catalysts to obtain more or less sound.

The revised performance figures have not been revealed, but it is now said to accelerate from 0 to 200 km / h in 5.5 seconds, so it is to be expected that the 0 to 100 km / h will complete it below 4 , 1 seconds.

Can be added Adjustable H&R springs for 1,070 euros more, with 20-inch Manhart wheels, a carbon fiber air intake and an improved intercooler as well. Although not pictured, brake and interior upgrades are also on the option list, with Manhart charging for 1.990 euros for its version of the roof with star lights from Rolls-Royce. So with the new C63 S destined to ditch the V8 engine in favor of a four-cylinder hybrid powertrain in the coming months, Manhart’s upgrades to the V8 make the German sports car more valuable than ever.
