Vath Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Crams 10 lb. of Crazy into a 5 lb. Bag

The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe is already a formidable parkway pugilist, what with its angry 6.2L V8 quaking the pavement with 451hp (481hp with the AMG Development Package) in the nimble C-Class body and all. AMG makes it even crazier with the Black Series version, which adds flared fenders, functional aero bits carbon-ceramic brakes, rear-seat delete (though you can have them leave it in at no charge) and raises engine output to 510hp. In short, it’s about as close as you can get to driving Merc’s 2012 DTM racer without kidnapping and impersonating Gary Paffett.

But if the stock C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is stupid fast, there’s always going to be at least one person who wants it to be lobotomized-gnat fast. Thankfully, the tuning community is, as always, at the ready to deliver. And the company that delivers in what has to be the biggest way is Vath.
