edo competition C 63 AMG T- Model
All guns blazing
.... a true bruiser made by edo competition.
Restraint is not necessarily one of the virtues that edo competition
claims for itself. That quickly becomes clear when looking at this
version of the current generation AMG C-Class.
Designed specifically for the high-revving engine in the Mercedes C 63
AMG, edo competition is offering a power kit that's in a class of its
own. It consists of a new high-performance exhaust system, exhaust
headers, high-flow catalytic converters, new air filters, revised
engine electronics and a removal of the top speed governor. The result
is an enormous power increase from the stock output of 457 horsepower
/ 336 kW to 600 horsepower /
441 kW. At the same time the torque
output growns from 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) to 680 Nm (501 lb-ft). As will
all engine modications done by edo competition, a dynamometer is used
to carry out the tuning work, and the actual output is documented
An impressive and awe-inspiring sounndtrack is provided by the new
exhaust with butterfly valves. The high-performance exhaust system
features a programmable electronic controller that monitors the level
of back pressure and opens the integrated 70 mm butterfly valves when
a certain threshold is exceeded. The exhaust is made entirely from
stainless steel and the chromed exhaust tips that mimic the factory
pieces add to the car's expressive styling.
The extreme speeds that the edo C 63 AMG T-Model is capable of require
specific modifications to its wheels. 19-inch Michelin
high-performance tires allow for a top speed exceeding 340 km/h (211
mph). The 235/35 ZR 19 front tires are mounted on 8.5Jx19 multi-piece
wheels, while 265/30 ZR 19 tires on 9.5Jx19 multi-piece wheels are
used on the rear axle.
Naturally, the interior wasn't neglected as it makes up a large part
of the car's visual appeal. Throughout the cabin, carbon fiber
applications have been used to enhance its esthetic qualities.
On customer request the interior can be individualized using leather,
cloth, fine woods or lacquer, high-quality metal applications or
carbon fiber. Steering wheels, dashboards, center consoles, pedals,
seats or even the whole interior can be customized, and the
possibilities are virtually limitless.
