VATH V63RS C-Class CLUBSPORT Wagon – Mercedes C63 AMG Estate Gets Overhauled

VATH V63RS Wagon

The new VATH V63RS CLUBSPORT Wagon is a suburban dynamo for lightning quick returns from the supermarket with frozen goods, just in time delivery of the kids to soccer practice (after arriving 20 minutes late to scoop them) or when there is a stuck-up Porsche 911 Turbo driver next to you who you are dying to smoke. This model is based on the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate which is already a rocket. VATH added their tuning know-how to up the engine outut to 585 hp, which gives the V63RS Wagon a top speed of 202 mph.

The car benefits from upgraded suspension and brake systems, an aerodynamic kit and new 20″ wheels (20×9 in front, 20×10.5 in rear.) And, of course, a healthy dose of carbon fiber sprinkled in which can be found on the hood, air escapes and rear diffuser. Inside, there are some new appointments like sport bucket seats, Alcantera roof-lining and a TV/DVD unit. VATH also offers a gazillion additional options. We give the VATH V63RS CLUBSPORT two thumbs up for keeping the wagon wars raging. Just for comparison— The BMW M5 Touring has 500 hp and performs 0-62 mph in 4.8 seconds and the Audi RS6 Avant Quattro has 580 bhp and performs 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds.

    Well I like the mission, and the power, and the platform. However, the execution seems like too much. I love carbon fiber, I want a carbon fiber pillow to rest my head on my carbon fiber bed with a carbon fiber night cap. But here it looks out of place. I’m not saying weight saving isn’t awesome, I think this carbon fiber looks too raw for a wagon. If it had a light black spray on it it would be a little more subtle. Look at Brabus for example, their body kits are subtle, functional, and slightly more aggressive than AMG. Mercedes cars are about comfort, luxury, build quality, and subdued anarchy. Even the insanely powerful S63AMGs look fairly docile in a parking lot. I guess it’s like old rock and roll, it was played at a 6 before, and Brabus turns it up to 9, and it still sounds good. But if you crank it to 11 it’s distorted. The yellow engine bay is too much for what is a dark, 5 seater barn-stormer. The raw carbon look is a blessing on a Zonda F Roadster, but here it seems tacked on. And the rear diffuser is too brazen to keep the ideals of an AMG Mercedes alive.
    While I applaud loud cars that look insane, they have to have the power to back it up. In fact, if you took a Brabus engine with 7hp and 1000 ft lbs and shoved in this car, the yellow engine covers and rear diffuser made of knives would make sense. But because it’s tuned to 585 hp, with a mere tune, it just doesn’t back up what the outside is saying. The body is wearing a suit that looks like The HULK, but underneath that suit is a gym personal trainer. Strong, yes. But he is not the World’s Strongest Man champion that he appears to be.
