The new S63 AMG Coupe is quite a stunner right from the factory. As a first step to making it a true supercoupe, IMSA of Germany is done a hat-trick of excellent first upgrades to this white knight.
The air suspension module electronically allows the car’s air suspension to crouch a bit closer to the pavement, a new exhaust X-pipe system makes it shouty and the new wheels do wonders for the big coupe’s grip and stance.
The results speak for themselves. Very sexy. Makes us forget all about the CL-Class!
MOBILE INDIVIDUALITY CREATED by IMSA
For nearly 10 years IMSA GmbH from Brueggen on the Lower Rhine is occupied to design real and astonishing the whole world tuning sensations and to put them into practice. The team around Holger Mohr is committed to Lamborghini, developing – not only for these aims – high-tech safety and high-performance components free of any mass production character, i.e. absolutely high precision handicraft. Besides virtuously mastered performance there are also absolutely individual design solutions in the result, with unique aerodynamic features for looking for equal driving fun. That is the way that the „brand“ of IMSA was established over continents.
Thanks to traditional relations with Mercedes, now and then a Stuttgart car attains also new honors. We will talk here about the new S-class, namely a Mercedes S63 4Matik Coupé. As AMG in Affalterbach has done a good job already, we need only some little „patches“ in order to put the white in this case Swabian flag ship to draw more attention. At first, there is a company own lowering module for the sedan like air suspension system, followed by a wheel-tire-combination of particular kind: IMSA forged light-alloy rims in 9×21 in. with tires 255/35R21 on the front axle and in 10,5×21 in. with 295/30R21 on the rear. The other modifications are made to support the engine. Besides the software update, there will to be spoken about the sports cats and the modified x-cross central muffler of the exhaust system, but also about the charge air cooler and the sports air filters. Still remaining the downpipes and the turbocharger outlet for optimized air flow rate and the intercooler radiator. By the way – nearly all of the mentioned here parts are made by IMSA, with the result, that enormous 720 HP (= 529 kW) with 1,080 Nm of max. torque are provided at free disposal.
In the future, IMSA will develop complete tuning programs for selected Mercedes-Benz product line models with focus on AMG. Already now we want to point out that actually besides the next power stages for the S-class Coupé an aerodynamics kit is being developed.
The worldwide success as result of the combination of know how, high performance technology and quality assurance approves the enterprise giving hope for further top-class solutions made by IMSA.
