It has been more than a few years since a C-Class Mercedes was a real pin-up beauty.
And for a C220 to look as good as the original C36 AMG!?
That is some achievement without changing one body panel or aero piece.
These Volker Shmidt Revolution wheels come with a ride height drop courtesey of coil-over springs all around.
This might not be our choice — the newly-available AirMatic ride in the forthcoming US-market C400 and C300 is hard to beat!
But it would look a hell of a lot better with these hot wheels.
VOLKER SCHMIDT 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
C CLASS WITH WHEELS OF SCHMIDT REVOLUTION
Undisputed eye-catcher of every tuned vehicle was, is and remains the wheel. Who is in search of a rim-tyre combination fitting for his car, he can find it with certainty at the company Schmidt Revolution in Bad Segeberg (www.FELGE.de). As there you will find an appropriate choice, quality and service.
In this case Mercedes-Benz C-Class W205 was equipped with the perfectly shaped and timeless nice gambit rim from the „family of the light rims“. Namely in the dimensions 8,5×20 inches with 235/30-20 Dunlop tires in the front axle and 10×20 inches with 275/25-20 in the rear axle. Here with regard to the colour the choice fell on high gloss silver (beside the also available SatinBlack). The price of this dream combination amounts to x.xxx euro for the set in silver.
The vehicle is equipped with the KW Inox Line-Variant 3- coilover. The safety-tested downward shift can be adjusted in front axle and rear axle between 35 and 70 millimetres and the damping is adjustable in the rebound and compression stages independently of each other. For the chassis available from now on a retail price amounts to 1.949 euros. Besides, this chassis is also available in the variation 1 and 2. Further will be also available shortly the KW DDC ECU coilover with electronic adjustment of damping.
In addition, one more Carlsson increase of power, called 220 Blue TEC, was carried out in the C class. From standard values of 170 hp (125 kW) of power with 3,000 to 4,200 rpm and 400 nm max. torque with 1,400 to 2,800 rpm the power was increased to 204 hp (150 kW) and 500 nm of maximal drive torque. You only need to get into the car and to drive.
