“To hell with modesty” – so begins the communiqué of the Edo Competition about their last performance, a Mercedes C 63 AMG. While recognizing the qualities and excellent performance of the series model, the boys at Edo Competition were dissatisfied. In fact, not dissatisfied but rather confident that it can be better. It’s their job to think so, if they want to preserve its reputation.

C 63 AMG is equipped with a V8 engine of 6.2 liter, a maximum power of 457 hp and max. torque of 600 Nm. No turbine. In fact, no one in Edo get complicated with supercharging. Instead they changed the exhaust system, exhaust headers, high-flow catalytic converters, new air filters and a recalibrated ECU (including top speed governor removal) boost these numbers to an impressive 555 horsepower and 680 Nm (501 ft-lb). With this occasion they suppressed and electronic speed limiter that hold just 250 km / h.

Being tested, the propeller reached to provide 555 hp and 680 Nm, sufficient values that the car will explode from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km / h.

The good side (or bad, depending on how you look at the situation) is that Edo Competition has not crossed with the aesthetic lines of the machine, limiting to the fitting of black rims, from alloy rims, of 19 inches, shod in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.

As for the inside, there are no pictures, because there is not a standard interior, to not conflict with different client tastes, Edo leaves them to order what they want. For the right price, tuner executes everything.
