HMS Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG supercharged to 690hp

The standard C 63 AMG not powerful enough for you? Maybe the HMS Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG supercharger kit will get your motor running. Power can be boosted to a monstrous 690hp.

In standard form, the C 63 AMG comes with a 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 producing 336kW, or 358kW with the optional Performance Pack. After a HMS supercharger kit is installed, power can be raised to three different stages; 460kW/805Nm, 470kW/840Nm, and 508kW/876Nm.

Each stage of the pack consists of a screw-type supercharger, a new intake manifold, an intercooler setup, a new aluminium power steering oil container, a sports air filter, a full exhaust system, and an engine ECU remap with boost control.

HMS also provides upgrades to the braking and handling departments, including KW Clubsport coilover suspension, two-piston brakes with cross-drilled discs, and lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels.

To further set the C 63 apart from its factory counterpart, HMS offers discreet styling revisions as well. A bodykit includes an aggressive carbon fibre front bumper bar with more serious venting, pumped wheel arches, and a new carbon rear diffuser.

Prices for the stage 3 kit start at 24,419 euros (approximately AU$31,482), plus 3451 euros (AU$4449) for installation.
