Mercedes-AMG C63 by B&B Automobiltechnik

The Mercedes-AMG C63 is one of those cars that attracts a lot of attention from a lot of different places, none more so than in the aftermarket world. Really, over the past few months, the AMG C63 has arguably received the most tuning programs of any recent model. Tuners like Vath and Brabus have released their own programs for the model, and in the case of the latter, it’s actually come out with two tuning kits for the popular Mercedes. Well, now you can add B&B Automobiltechnik to that list because the German tuner has just introduced its own kit for the hot rod Benz.

In some ways, having so many tuners build their own kits kind of makes it more difficult for the next one to be different. That’s always been one of the most common issues in the tuning industry, and if you look at B&B’s program relative to the other programs, it kind of feels like B&B could’ve done more to separate itself. See, there’s that feeling that when a bar is set, the only way to be better is to raise that bar yourself. I don’t necessarily know if B&B accomplished that, but that’s not to say that it doesn’t have an impressive program for the AMG C63 – It does. I mean, 600 horsepower is still 600 horsepower; it’s just that it could’ve been better given the circumstances.

Still, if you’re an owner of the AMG C63, count your blessings that there are tuners like B&B that have taken the time to offer you something more than what you’re getting out of your car. That’s exactly what you get with this kit.
