It is only recently that the US market enjoys super-high-performance AMG wagons — our European friends have been loving their AMG Kombi’s and Estates for years now. But even for German domestic-market clients – we do not believe a wagon C63 was ever in the factory catalog. That makes this Wimmer conversion extra special.
Bumping the power and style of the C63 is Wimmer RST — a helpful acronym when shortening Rennsporttechnik!
Nothing shorthand about the 150-horsepower conversion in power in this yellow C63, nor the slammed stance and custom styling upgrade.

You must be joking about PONYHOF by WIMMER Rennsporttechnik
The Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Performance is – as by the way everything labeled by AMG – under the guiding principle of handmade engineering art of the extra class. It can produce with 487HP quite easily, the as it has been fully demonstrated by C 204T. But there must be a significant number of pragmatists to whom it is not enough.
In just this case WIMMER Rennsporttechnik in Solingen helps.
If starting with 487BHP, after the aimed intervention the car will have 624 HP, it means that the pony-stage has been outgrown without any doubts. The WIMMER-Professionals achieve the increase of the power through the upgrade of the cylinder heads, through the sport cam shafts, modified throttle and the optimization of the intake manifolds. Similarly, a larger fuel pump works very efficiently.
Specially crafted headers from WIMMER and special sport catalysts from HJS Company, as well as very powerful sound of the own WIMMER – Sport exhaust system made from stainless steel are installed. Moreover more than 84-mm- wide Y-pipes make the Mercedes acoustically accessible to a wider audience. But in the case if this is still not enough, you can check out the sound by Wimmer Company. The customization of the software for this powerhouse conversion was made in the high-test premises which are located on the WIMMER Company territory in Solingen.
The 19 inch BBS rims fitted with Dunlop tyres. In this connection, a club sport suspension from KW, which was specifically tailored for this Mercedes by KW automotive, and spacers from H & R, as well as the limited slip differential of Drexler Company, should be mentioned.
One more time Cam Shaft Company, located in the Rhine region, created for the C 63 AMG a really immense recognition fact. Kempener has covered a Mercedes with material of the film manufacturer BRUXSAFOL in shiny “electrical- yellow”. The floor mats Ronsdorf of the interior stress the origin of this powercar by Wimmer logo.
