Carlsson CK63 RS: Beefed up Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Saloon gets 585HP V8

Never content with Merc's factory models, Carlsson is at it again, this time with the most powerful version of the new E-Class saloon, the E63 AMG. The German tuner's treatment brings power up from 525HP to 584HP and peak torque from 630Nm to 695Nm (512 lb-ft). The higher performance figures for the 6.3-liter V8 were achieved through a reprogrammed ECU, a sport exhaust system and various other upgrades.

The extra power allows the E63 AMG which Carlsson renamed to CK63 RS, accelerated from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.5 seconds, or three tenths of a second faster than the factory model.

Carlsson also added a few aero parts into the mix like the modified front apron, new side skirts and a rear apron that houses a carbon-fiber diffuser. The company claims that the bodykit helps increase downforce at high speeds. The kit is complemented by a set of 20-inch bi-color 1/5 REVO alloy wheels.

Depending on how much you're willing to spend on the CK63 RS, Carlsson can also dress the entire cabin with special leathers while other highlights include the aluminium trim options and the illuminated floor mats.
