The Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG is one of the most bawse whips money can by—all the size and power of an S-Class, but with only two doors, so it’s twice as exclusive. But it’s not so bougie that it can’t be modified—so Famous Parts has gone to work on fixing up a slightly older CL63 AMG and giving it some extra cool.
The Famous Parts Mercedes is based off a 2009 version of the CL63 AMG, which means it still rocks the 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8, not the newer, more potent twin-turbo 5.5 liter V8. But thanks to software optimization and a new exhaust kit added by the folks at Rhine Land, this CL-Class makes an extra 85 horses over stock, bumping power to 611 horses. But the real added muscle is visual: a Black Edition V1 Wide Body Kit consisting of nee side skirts, a new rear bumper, rear side wall enlargements, front mud guards, and a new front bumper from Prior Design.
New LED headlamps, a new hood and a matte gray wrap give it a little more pizzaz, along 21″ Brabus rims wrapped in Continental SportContact rubber—and the whole car was lowered as well, using the CL63’s stock automatic chassis control system. It’s a pretty sweet package, one we wouldn’t mind taking home ourselves. So if anyone’s looking to get us a Christmas gift…[Shout-out to Famous Parts!]
Famous Parts for Famous Cars: CL63 AMG with Black Edition Wide Body Kit
Since the emergence of the SEC models (C126) of the 1980s, the great S-Class Mercedes Benz Coupés have been seen as the coronation of the German art of automobile production and count among the most luxurious and prestigious vehicles of the world. Even the current CL Class C216 can also lay claim to this internationally acclaimed nimbus. Yet the C216 has other capabilities: With the Black Edition Wide Body Kit, the elegant Businessman is transformed into a masculine athlete with muscular proportions and broad shoulders.
The transformation was performed by the company “Famous Parts“ from Ratingen near Düsseldorf – specialist in the exclusive refinement of automobiles – responsible for the equipment of the 2009 pre-facelift model of a CL63 AMG with the bulky Black Edition V1 Wide Body Kit. This covers a front bumper together with spoiler blade, a pair of side skirts, a rear bumper with diffuser, a pair of front mud guards, rear side wall enlargements, a new engine hood and lattice inserts to match. Also: integrated Famous Parts in Prior Design front bumper with bright LED daytime running lights with exact fitting molded parts.
One more highlight of the bodywork styling is no doubt, the complete wrapping in the striking and conspicuous yet non-pervasive color shade of “Frozen Gray Matt Champagne Metallic“ rounded up with the tinting of the rear side glasses and the rear windshield.
The high-grade Brabus alloy wheel rims of size 10.5 x 21 inches found their way into the mud guards in a perfect blend with the character of the great coupé. The “Monoblock E“ rims were fitted with Continental Sport Contact high-performance tires of the dimensions 265/30R21 on the steering axle and 305/25R21 on the drive axle.
Famous Parts performed lowering on the vehicle through the electronic adaptation of the serially produced ABC chassis frame while spacing discs of the company H&R accounted for the horizontal alignment of the wheels in such a way that they blend perfectly well with the edges of the wheel arch.
Famous Parts did not leave even the 6.2 liter V8 driving mechanism of the CL63 AMG untouched: Using software modifications and optimization of the exhaust gas system, the specialists from Rhine Land gained a significant power boost of 85 horse power from the high torque engine in such a way that measurement on the capacity test platform uncovered a big fat 610 horse power.
