ARKYM has been designing some really clean and conservative kits for some of European’s finest automobiles, including BMW’s E92 M3. Their newest project is Mercedes-Benz‘s C63 AMG luxury sedan, outfitting it with a variety of carbon fiber pieces that are subtle and clean, enhancing the C63′s natural lines.

There isn’t an official release from ARKYM on the kit, but it looks like several of their distributors are taking orders. We spy a front lip, rear diffuser and trunk lip spoiler, all in carbon fiber. What we’re really digging is the fact that these photos show off an otherwise stock C63 AMG, which really highlights what ARKYM’s kit can do to the car.

So for those looking for subtle enhancements to your Mercedes C63 AMG, we’d highly recommend ARKYM’s kit. It’s refreshing to see aftermarket manufacturers sticking to a clean design rather than big and bold designs.

Showing that the economy is truly turning around, the aftermarket industry (fueled by disposable income) continues to pick up steam. Recently ARKYM announced its AeroRace Kit for the BMW E92 M3. With yet another entry to the BMW E92 M3 segment for body styling options, we groaned when we saw that ARKYM’s slogan is “The Ultimate Aerodynamic Experience.” Surprisingly ARKYM’s take on the BMW E92 M3 is a splendid one.

Based out of California, ARKYM does its own original design work in-house, priding itself on “combining form, function and aerodynamic theory with industry standard materials and production efficiency.” Again, not something entirely novel for body kit companies to make these claims, but taking a look at ARKYM’s product shows that the proof is in the pudding.

The AeroRace Kit includes full double-sided carbon fiber on the hood and the trunk, freeing up weight while giving it a nice and fresh aggressive design. The vents are subtle enough to not be gaudy and the fitment looks fantastic based on the photos. There’s a price to pay for the products though, with the MSRP on the hood set at $1,999.00 while the trunk will set you back $1,249.00.

We’ re just thrilled that some companies are still kicking strong and thinking outside the box instead of simply replicating what’s existing at a cheaper price.
