This special Mercedes C63 AMG is the perfect example that even a high-performance sports car can be further improved if you have enough money to spare for the necessary aftermarket parts. It all started two years ago when the owner of this car, Keith Brantley, contacted the tuning company Modern Horsepower (MHP) and asked them to do a complete makeover of his C63 AMG.

What they’ve come up with you can see for yourselves. Dubbed the “Red Brown Arrow”, it is probably the fastest C63 AMG in the world. It packs a Stage 3CMR Package developed by MHP, which means that the powerful sedan has been completely modified mechanically. The car’s naturally-aspirated V8 power plant delivers 652 hp and 595 lb.-ft (807 Nm) of torque, which is 201 hp and 152 lb.-ft (206 Nm) more than the regular model.

By adding a nitrous oxide system, the power is boosted to a whopping 900 hp, good enough for a 1/4 mile in a mere 10.41 seconds, with an exit speed of 135.27 mph. This performance was achieved last month at the Maryland International Raceway, with only a 125 hp shot of nitrous.

It did the 0-60 mph sprint in only 3.04 seconds and from 0 to 100 mph it needed 6.19 seconds. Even more impressive than that are the 6.59 seconds between 60 to 130 mph, which is 1.2 seconds quicker than the Murcielago!

The owner of the car said that his C63 AMG is still a work in progress as he wants to install some new cams, better rubber and wheels, along with bigger nitrous jets.
