The Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series is considered by many as the ultimate driving machine, but tuning specialist from Kleemann see this as just another interesting challenge. The specialist started with the styling and offered special racy wheels to complete the exterior of the car and work in perfect harmony with the race inspired Black Series chassis for a much improved driving experience. The next step of the Kleemann optimization was a power increase for the 500 horsepower 6.2-liter AMG engine to 545 horsepower and 675 Nm of torque. As the final touch to the magnificent car, the brand new Kleemann logo kit has replaced the MB letters on the boot lid.
Cars from the AMG division of Mercedes-Benz have always been considered as something rather special. With the introduction of the Black Series models, this is more evident than ever before, and the CLK 63 AMG Black Series is considered by many as the ultimate driving machine. At Kleemann however, they saw it as just another interesting challenge, and the result is one of the most fascinating and uncompromising Kleemann cars ever.
How do we optimize this car? This question has only one correct answer: With sophistication! The already fabulous CLK 63 AMG Black Series doesnâ€™t leave much room for improvements, but the Kleemann engineers didnâ€™t hesitate for a second, when they received this challenge. Somehow, AMG had just done a lot of the work that had previously been performed by Kleemann on the â€śnormalâ€ť CLKâ€™s, so the task wasnâ€™t really that difficult.
The first thing you notice on a CLK Black is the racy styling â€" particularly the wide fenders, which house the 19″ AMG wheels. Now the car rolls on 20″ 3 piece Kleemann TS-6 wheels, 10″ wide with 255/30 tires on the front axle and 11″ wide with 305/25 tires on the rear axle. These wheels visually complete the exterior of the car and work in perfect harmony with the race inspired Black Series chassis for a much improved driving experience.
The next step of the Kleemann optimisation was a power increase for the 507 HP 6.2 litre AMG engine. This car is the first model fitted with the new Kleemann 63-K2 kit, consisting of a set of high flow exhaust manifolds with matching downpipes and 200-cell steel sport catalysts and a remapped engine ECU. This kit increases peak power to 545 HP and 675 Nm of torque and power is raised throughout the rev scale, retaining the everyday driveability of the stock engine and eliminating the need to modify the gearbox (The Kleemann 63-K2 kit can be fitted to all AMG 63 cars).
As the final touch to the magnificent car, the brand new Kleemann logo kit has replaced the MB letters on the boot lid. The elegant and minimalistic letters add a touch of exclusivity and mystique to the car, and set it apart from other â€śstandardâ€ť Black Series cars (The new logo kit is available from January 2009).
The Kleemann philosophy Comfort Power represents the point that tuning isnâ€™t just about raw power and radical styling. The main goal must always be power and driveability in perfect harmony and the Kleemann CLK 63K AMG Black Series is a perfect example of just that.
