Vath tunes the Mercedes-Benz E Class E63 AMG |

Mercedes-Benz really changed the way people look at its E Class with the current generation, but even though it has a more aggressive style, there are plenty of things to be improved upon, even in the top-of-the-range E63 AMG performance model, at least according to the tuning crew at VÄTH Automobiltechnik.

Entitled the Vath V63RS, the model sports a new bodykit, with a starless grille, a boot spoiler, a new carbon fiber diffuser, and a front lip spoiler from the same material. The suspension has been lowered by 30mm, and a set of 20-inch forged three-piece wheels, with high performance tires, were also fitted. For the inside, you can get special carbon trim, and velour floor mats, with the logo of the tuning company.

But what’s really interesting about this project is the increased performance. The team enlarged the cylinder head channels, installed a new ECU, added performance parts like pistons, valves or cam shafts, fitted a larger air intake and bigger exhaust valves. What do you get from all these new pieces? A whopping 605 HP and 690 Nm of torque, an increase of 87 HP and 60 Nm from the standard figures. This translates in a 0 to 62 mph time of 4.1 seconds, while the top speed is a dizzying 211 mph (340 km/h).

Overall, the E63 was quite extreme, but thanks to the Vath crew, you’ll think the stock model was pretty slow.
