Voltage Design has prepared a tuning package for the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe.
It’s hard to imagine an S63 AMG Coupe owner who would be willing to mess around with Mercedes-Benz’s design but Voltage Design has created a styling kit for such a niche. Voltage Design has developed a carbon fiber package encompassing the radiator grille (including Mecedes logo), front spoiler, front apron wings, hood air inlets, mirror caps, side skirts, diffuser and tailgate spoiler. The entire hood and grille can be made from the same lightweight material for an additional cost.
There’s also a considerably upgrade for the V8 5.5-liter twin-turbo lifting power from 585 HP and 664 lb-ft to no less than 800 HP and 848 lb-ft. The extra boost was obtained by fiddling with the engine’s electronics, installing a custom exhaust system with valve command, upgrading the manifold and charge air cooler as well as installing larger turbos.
More power commands better brakes so the S63 AMG Coupe received a larger carbon ceramic system hiding behind Vossen CVT 22-inch alloy wheels while the custom springs can lower the ride height between 10 mm and 35 mm.
