Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Estate



Tuners, you just can’t stop them – another German tuning house, Wimmer Rennsporttechnik, has come up with its reinterpretation of the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Estate. It’s not as over-the-top a job as one expects, with performance updates consisting of a retuned ECU and a sports exhaust.


Dress-up bits on the estate, which is finished in a metallic red shade, is made up of black 19-inch BBS type CH rims, wrapped with sports tyres. The car’s original suspension, meanwhile, has been swapped out for KW coilovers. Underneath, the C 63 S receives a stainless steel catback sports exhaust system in a Y-shape


Performance-wise, no aftermarket parts have been fitted to the engine itself, but Wimmer-tuned C 63 Estate features an optimised ECU module, which bumps output on the 4.0 litre V8 twin-turbo AMG engine from the original 510 hp to a more potent 640 hp.


The company doesn’t mention how fast the modified C 63 S will achieve the century sprint, but as a reference, the “standard” C 63 S Estate completes the run in 4.1 seconds, so this one should dip well under the four-second mark. What do you think of the treatment the estate has been given?
