The performance kit for the motor type M156 increases the serial performance of the 6.3 litre V8 from 457 hp (336 kW) at 6,800 r.p.m up to 565 hp/415 kW. The torque significantly increases from 600 to 685 Nm and therefore the car now needs 3.8 seconds to accelerate from 0-100 km/h instead of the serial 4.5 seconds.
All kits include a special motor electronics adaption, a maximum speed increase up to 300 km/h (electronically limited), a sport air filter and a n three-part Carlsson motor cover made of real carbon as well as the obligatory Carlsson nameplate in chrome. Carlsson limits the thrust at 300 km/h for all models with an electronic device. The Carlsson sport rear muffler from the 565 hp strong CK63 S-Kit not only renders an enormous sound but also 15 extra hp (11 kW).
The Carlsson RS coil-over kit, which has been co-developed by Ellen Lohr, offers a step-less height adjustment. With the individually adjustable damping characteristics, the driver can regulate the setup according to his preference. The driver can enjoy the comfort of the roadworthy suspension system or race for top speeds on a racetrack. To ensure that the extra performance which has been imbued to the C-Class by Carlsson does not go up in smoke on the asphalt, Carlsson recommends fitting its torque-sensitive multi-plate limited slip differential with mechanically variable lock-up (produced with lock-up values according to customer requirements). This increases the traction and driving stability, especially when accelerating in bends.
The aerodynamics adjustments consists of a front spoiler, the front spoiler lip RS and a rear spoiler (with an imprinted Carlsson logo) which improves stability at higher speeds. All accessories are made of high-quality PUR or optionally real carbon.
When developing the Carlsson light alloy wheels 1/16 UL, the engineers and designers most of all focused on weight optimisation. All force effects on the wheel are led into the wheel spider by the regular distribution of spokes. This avoids an over-dimensioned wall thickness and leads to a low wheel weight. The latest forging technology leads to a weight reduction of 38% compared to ordinary wheels with a similar wheel load and dimension! Thanks to the metal compression, the induced forces are forwarded in a far more homogeneous way than with a cast wheel. Therefore, the unsprung masses are held as low as possible at the wheel suspensions and that leads to a noticeable driving comfort improvement by the Carlsson forged wheels compared to customary light alloy wheels. The forged Carlsson wheel 1/16 Ultra Light is available in the sizes 8,5x19' (FA+RA) and 10x19' (only RA) for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.
According to the customer requirements, Carlsson compiles various components to an individual comfort-mix, from a sport steering wheel to leather interiors or multi-media accessories.Mercedes launches C-Class DR 520
