Misha Design Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG by Couture Customs is a Blanco Bruiser
The new Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is plenty potent and plenty stylish right off the dealer’s lot, but Mercedes-Benz only offers so many variables and deviations from the norm to configure one that is truly unique. If you really want to make your new high-po four-door coupe stand out from the crowd, you have to turn to the aftermarket. And one firm that offers ways to stand out from the crowd is Misha Design.
It was a Misha Design body kit that Arizona-based Couture Customs selected for its makeover of a CLS63 AMG. The new front bumper features bigger openings than the stock bumper, and it does away with the LED running lights. The stock grille insert is also replaced with a carbon fiber piece. The new front fenders boast larger vents, and the replacement rear bumper adds vents to the equation. Rocker panel extensions, spoilers atop the rear window and trunklid, a hood with added vents, smoked taillight lenses, and blacked out trim and emblems round out the body mods. Couture Customs replaced the stock rolling hardware with 20” Forgiato F2.01 wheels coated white to match the body.
The transformation is substantial, but Couture Customs didn’t stop with the exterior. The seats are reupholstered in black leather with black diamond-quilted perforated leather inserts with white stitching and white stripes. A similar diamond-quilted treatment is applied to the front center armrest, and Couture Customs names and logos adorn the seatbacks and headrests, respectively. These new hides make it easy to tell this is no ordinary AMG Benz, yet the rather tame color scheme avoids going over the top.
It appears that Couture Customs didn’t bother with any engine upgrades or other performance tweaks, but when the stock 5.5L twin-turbo V8 is already making at least 518hp, is that such a bad thing? Not to us. And as a result of not worrying about boosting performance, the budget for this custom job probably doesn’t qualify as astronomical. Makes this car that much more enticing, doesn’t it?
