A lot of people say that the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series may be one of the best cars ever made. Boasting with a V8 engine that delivers of 517 HP as stock, it is also one of the most powerful luxury coupés on the market today. Tikt, a tuning brand coming from Germany, thought of adding even more muscle to this monster, therefore creating the Black Baron.

The package hardly focuses on performance improvements. The hood cages a real-time beast, as Tikt have upgraded it with high performance racing headers, an entirely new high performance exhaust system with sports catalyzer and X-pipe, as well as larger throttle valves.

Thus, the output of this Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series has been upped to 606 HP and 486 lb-ft of torque. Although this only means an 18% increase in power and 6% better torque, with the stock power that high, the bonus is quite a formidable one.

Another point of focus of the Black Baron project is car handling and ride. Tikt has installed a Clubsport adjustable suspension system for improved handling. The guys have also fitted it with a brand new set of lightweight forged wheels which can be offered in two sizes, 19 and 20 inches in diameter. They are shod in high performance sports tires.

Cost wise, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Baron can be purchased at around €175,000, the equivalent of approximately $228,000 if you consider the current exchange rates. Considering the price of the stock vehicle, you can learn the upgrade costs a whopping €59,570, or around $77,661. What can we say? – “Cheap!”
