Mercedes-Benz‘s C63 AMG is one of the world’s most viable luxury sedans, packing plenty of performance for any enthusiast. Those having to compromise for a sedan but who still yearn for power often look to a C63 to satisfy their needs. Wimmer RS is well aware of how potent the super sedan is, and in turn, have produced their version of the ultimate sporty sedan.

The heart of Wimmer RS’ production is improving the performance out of the 6.2-liter V8 powerplant. The performance modifications improve power to 601-hp and and 531 lb-ft of torque from the factory’s 451-hp and 443 ft-lbs of torque. The horsepower gains come from modifications on the entire exhaust system – manifold, down pipe, high-flow cats and exhaust – while a new air intake and filter helps the motor breathe better. Optimizing the power is a new camshaft and head work. Those looking to only improve the horsepower can do so for the price of a V6 Camry: $28,040.

Accenting the look of the vehicle is a lightweight set of BBS CH-R wheels in a staggered 19×8.5-inch, 19×9.5-inch set. The wheels are wrapped with Dunlop rubber in a 235/35/19 and 265/35/19 variety. Suspension upgrades are also included with the wheel and tire package for around $5,075.
