Launched in India less than two months ago, the Mercedes-AMG C63 S certainly isn’t lacking in the power department, but that hasn’t stopped the aftermarket specialists from performmaster to work on the twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine and unlock more power. While the standard C63 S packs a mighty punch of 476 bhp and 650 Nm, this heavily tuned version delivers a massive 612 bhp and 840 Nm of torque.

It’s up on horsepower by 28% and 29% on torque which in return has reduced the 0-100 kmph sprint time by 0.3 seconds from 4.1s to 3.8s. It’s a similar story with the 0-200 kmph quick run that’s now achieved in 11.4 seconds, representing a significant decrease from the standard 12.7 seconds. Top speed has also seen a significant improvement as the Mercedes-AMG C6 S Estate by performmaster will do as much as 310 kmph whereas the standard model equipped with the AMG Driver’s Package is limited to 280 kmph.

Needless to say, the power boost can also be applied on the C63 S Sedan as well as on the AMG GT which utilizes the same twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine that will also finds its way underneath the hood of the next generation E63 due in a couple of years with more power.

As you can see from the attached images, performmaster did not make any styling changes aside from applying a sporty tri-color strip on the side skirts that includes the company’s name. The same finish can also be noticed running from the front to the rear end of the car to denote this isn’t your ordinary C63 S Estate as now it has a lot more power that makes the hot wagon as fast as many supercars on sale today that cost a lot more money and are significantly less practical.
