85 hp power increase

Famous Parts has developed a tuning program for the 2009 pre-facelift Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG.

The first step was to install a Black Edition V1 Wide Body Kit consisting of a Prior Design front bumper with spoiler blade, front mud guards, new side skirts, rear bumper with diffuser and rear side wall enlargements. In addition, it sports a new hood, LED daytime running lights and the Frozen Gray Matt Champagne Metallic wrap.

It features Brabus alloys measuring 10.5x21 inches with Continental Sport Contact high-performance 265/30 R21 rubbers at the front and 305/25 R21 at the back. The vehicle was lowered via an electronic adaptation of the ABC chassis control system, while H&R was in charge of the wheels alignment.

The V8 6.2-liter engine of the CL63 AMG has received an 85 hp (63 KW) power hike to 610 hp (455 kW) through software optimization and exhaust system tweaks performed by Rhine Land.

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.

The front brake calipers look odd, looks more like a combination of two calipers!

Anyones knows which BBK are these? it says AMG but I've never seen these before... The article says that the car puts down 610hp so I bet they are functional.
