Väth, German aftermarket specialist with no need of introduction, has recently brought forth a staggering upgrade kit for the gorgeous Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG.

The car has been fitted with a body kit that greatly improves its aerodynamic capabilities, featuring a brand new rear diffuser with fins, large underbody, rear lip and front spoiler, all crafted from lightweight carbon fiber. The brand new look is completed by a set of 20-inch tri-modular alloy forged wheels with titanium-colored spokes to match the look of the high-performance sports braking system with its 390 mm (15.35-inch) brake discs at the front and 6-piston calipers, alongside Castrol SRF racing brake fluid and brake line kit.

Inside, this one looks just as gorgeous as the stock version, but has undergone some exquisite finish – a fancy carbon-black theme, exclusively handmade in Germany, on the front ashtray cover, two-part door stripes and the middle console. The steering wheel was garnished with leather, a new set of aluminium pedals was installed, while the speedometer got replaced with one that goes up to 224 mph.

The bonnet hides a Väth-modified 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine whose ECU was reprogrammed. It delivers a jaw-dropping 680 HP and 1,000 Nm of torque, much better than the stock 537 HP and 590 lb-ft. In addition, it sprints from naught to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). If the limited is removed, it goes way beyond 186 mph (300 km/h). Its name sounds as sporty as these figures – the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG V63RS-Export.
