German Special Customs have come up with a staggering kit for the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG, a car already amongst our list of favorites.

The project, so-called CLS63 AMG Stealth, relies on an updated version of the car’s standard 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, delivering a stupefying 750 HP (551 kW) and 1,150 Nm (848 lb-ft) of torque. This means the Stealth CLS is a whopping 225 HP (165 kW) and 451 Nm (332 lb-ft) more powerful than the 2012 stock car. No wonder it now only needs 3.7 seconds to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill, on to a maximum speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). This car will leave most Ferraris and Lambos behind, in a trail of dust.

In addition to the staggering engine upgrades, the Merc was also gifted with a KW coilover suspension system with front-axle adjustable dampers and brand new 20-inch wheels shod in 255/30 R20 tires at the front and 305/25 R20 tires at the rear.

The exterior of the car has also received some modifications, in the shape of a brand new front bumper with built-in LED daytime running lights, different side skirts and fenders, new rear bumper with carbon fiber diffuser and side air outlets, 4-pipe exhaust and a revamped hood with discreet air vent. The paintjob may seem quite familiar and we agree  – it is in fact a similar orange to the one on the Lamborghini Aventador. The cabin carries the theme on, dyed in orange, with black accents and some carbon fiber additions.
