"What the Black does, then, is blend genuine red-eyed supercar madness with drip-dry everyday practicality. I'm completely in love with it." - Jeremy Clarkson
If Clarkson's opinion means anything to you, then the fact that he actually owns one of these CLK63 AMG Black Series suggests this is one seriously good car. However, there are some owners that aren't completely satisfied with the performance AMG originally provided. Such is the case with this particular car. While at our facility we gave this Black Series a full Weistec overhaul; most notably, we installed the Stage 1 supercharger system. In its stock form, this CLK63 put down 418whp and 382wtq, but fitted with the CARB legal twin screw blower it recorded 523whp and 438wtq! To help the car transfer all its new power to the road we installed Weistec's rear suspension bushing upgrade kit, which consists of 32 Delrin replacement bushings for the entire rear suspension. Other Wiestec goodies we installed include a set of billet idler pulleys and a billet oil / air separator.
Of the 500 examples produced, probably only a small handlful of these Black Series are pushing this level of power and performance. If Jeremy Clarkson fell in love with the stock version of this car, then we can only imagine what he would have to say about this beast. Enjoy.
While we work primary with BMWs, we put plenty of other cars cars to the test on our Dynojet 224xLC dyno. So when we had this C63 AMG Black Series (one of only 800 produced) arrive at our shop, we just had to snap some photos to share with you guys. Enjoy.
