G-POWER C 63 AMG: Family sedan with super sports car´s power
There can be no doubt that the latest AMG C 63, as well as its even more powerful offshoot, the AMG C 63 S in particular, have been among the most popular and successful models from AMG in recent years. The mid-range sports car may come with up to 510 HP off the line, but with the expertise of G-POWER the power has been significantly increased.
The turbocharged four-liter V8 (M177) under the hood generates no less than 800 HP / 588 kW of power and 1,000 Nm of torque after getting a power enhancing treatment from G-POWER. Compared to the standard 467 HP of the C 63 off the line, this means an increase of a whopping 324 HP and 350 Nm. Thus, the AMG easily reaches the same level of performance as purebred supercars: after only 3.4 seconds from a standing position, the car has already sprinted to a speed of 100 km/h. And even after that, the car just keeps on accelerating at an impressive pace: this Mercedes does not reach its top speed until well beyond the 330 km/h mark.

But of course, this kind of enhancement cannot be achieved by optimizing the engine software alone. For instance, the V8 engine of the C63 was provided with the G-POWER turbocharger modification V2, which entails comprehensively optimizing the chargers with larger CNC-machined compressor and turbine wheels, an optimized compressor housing and an enlarged intake area. Overall, these changes reduce the exhaust gas back pressure, increase the air flow and lower the exhaust gas temperature, among other things.
And after the HURRICANE RR engine conversion, the engine itself comes out significantly optimized. G-POWER installs lighter and sturdier forged pistons which help reduce the compression, optimizes the manifold and installs a high-performance fuel pump. What is more, a new intake system with a high-flow air filter for an optimized fresh air supply and stainless-steel downpipes round off the engine conversion. And the seven-speed sports transmission on the AMG C 63 is also reinforced in order to withstand the phenomenal torque.
In this case, the look of the G-POWER C 63 AMG also makes it unmistakably clear just what it´s made of. This is not only thanks to the striking camouflage look applied here- the wheel cases also boast a set of the company´s own “HURRICANE RR” 20-inch forged rims. These double-spoke wheels made of high-tech aircraft aluminum with their jet black finish and high-sheen surface – the G-POWER DIAMOND CUT – are a perfect match for the look of the body. They are fitted with high-performance 255/30 ZR20 and 285/30 ZR20 tires.
