Getting More Out of a Mercedes-Benz AMG C63

Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 by RENNtechHow do you get an extra 100 horsepower out of a standard Mercedes-Benz AMG C63? One name should immediately come to mind, Hartmut Feyhl; the former technical director at AMG North America before forming his own company, RENNtech, in 1989. During the past two decades, Feyhl has built a reputation as one of the world's premier tuners and America's foremost authority on Mercedes-Benz high performance.

The AMG C63 is a return to the concept of bigger engine in a smaller car. What does Feyhl think of the AMG C63? Feyhl says,

"It is a very special car, as the C class has grown to about the same size as the 6.3 and the W124 Hammer, but with much more power. We want to see how far we can go with this car."

How far is RENNtech taking the AMG C63? The best writeup on this topic is from the tuners themselves and you can read it at, RENNtech for C63. RENNtech has posted a set of AMG C63 photos on flickr here.

Our friends over at Jalopnik also have a nice article that covers the mods performed by RENNtech on the Mercedes-Benz AMG C63, which you can read here.
