Exclamation Vossen Project- Mercedes Benz CLS 63 AMG





About two weeks ago we got interactive with our FACEBOOK fans and officially teased and announced our Vossen Project Mercedes Benz CLS 63 AMG. The response was overwhelmingly positive with our choice and we could not be happier. So we wanted to share our project with this forum and it will become a build thread you can follow to see our progress.

The Vision was simple. Choose a vehicle that blends power, grace, luxury, comfort, beauty and sport and enhance it with Vossen's Vision and Interpretation of how to elevate those characteristics. Among a great field of vehicles the Mercedes Benz CLS 63 AMG stood out as the definitive choice.

This CLS AMG chosen is OEM Matte White called officially "designo Magno Cashmere White" a rare choice among most vehicle colors. The heart is the engine, a handcrafted AMG 5.5 liter Bi-turbo engine with 518hp and a 0-60 time in the high 3/low 4 second range with the 1/4 mile in the low to mid 12 second range. It has a 7 speed AMG SpeedShift MCT Transmission with ECO Start/Stop (shifts are as fast as 100 milliseconds in the sport mode) with the AMG ride control Sport Suspension and AMG brakes 6 piston up front and 4 piston in the rear.

Inside the Premium Black Leather with the Piano Black Lacquer Wood Trim and black Alcantara Headliner was chosen, a brilliant contrast to the Matte White Paint, blending luxury and sport. This vehicle is also equipped with the P01 package which includes multiple options and full LED headlights, which in our opinion look brilliant when lit.

The vehicle comes equipped with 19" AMG 5 spoke alloy wheels, measuring 19x9 front and 19x10 rear with 255/35/19 front and 285/30/19 rear tires. These will be replaced immediately with a new set of Vossen Concave Wheels, can you guess what we will go with first?

We will share our thoughts and our modifications with this build and hope you follow it and will enjoy the process. This vehicle arrived highly anticipated and we have already moved to stage one of the modification process.

Thank you for reading and we hope you will enjoy our Vossen Project CLS 63 AMG! Here are our first set of teaser pictures which you can click and go to our website to see our fine selection of wheels, photos and videos.

Brabus version is the ultimate! And unless they do something radical with the engine, it won't even be in the same league. IMHO

We debuted this incredible piece of machinery late last year as our first Vossen Project Car, the incredible Mercedes Benz CLS 63. The biggest change was the addition of the RENNtech ECU module which HP leaped from 518hp to over 650hp and 700lbs of torque! Here is the video showing the CLS 63 at RENNtech, the dyno, track and drag strip!

Below are some of the images of our project cars full 15 picture photoshoot taken on top of a hi-rise parking deck (if you click any picture it takes you to the full gallery). The car is lowered on the KW suspension coilovers up front and the KW lowering module to adjust the rear air suspension. The car features the concave industry leading CV3 in the popular Matte Graphite Finish. These wheels are hub-centric for your Mercedes Benz and are fully TPMS compatible of course. Wheel sizes are 20x9 front 20x10.5 rear and tire sizes are 255/30/20 front and 305/25/20 rear. We feel the open face of the CV3 was perfect to show the huge AMG brakes painted "fahrenheit" orange and added a sporty and aggressive character to match the already sporty looks of the CLS 63. The top of the hi-rise parking deck was a fun spot to shoot this wonderful car and we hope you enjoy it.

Vossen Wheels of course are backed by an industry leading 5 year warranty. Any questions please email us at sales@vossenwheels.com , call us at 305-463-778 or contact your Vossen Wheels Dealer.
