RaceChip Ultimate and C63 S AMG, two powerhouses united

News & Stories | 14.12.2015 | RaceChip
The new Mercedes Benz C63 S AMG with the RaceChip Ultimate shows that even a vehicle that comes factory-equipped with sophisticated motorsport technology has serious potential to perform better. Thanks to the electronic performance enhancement achieved by our chip tuning experts, the C63 S AMG has a power output of 590 hp: a hefty increase of 87 hp and 92 lb-ft compared to the factory model.
The RaceChip Ultimate for the C63 AMG and C63 S AMG is available from USD 699 in RaceChip’s online store and from select partners. The Connect feature can be purchased for an extra USD 50. A more agile throttle response and significantly more powerful acceleration promise a driving experience like no other.

Performance enhancement with innovative smartphone control

In August, RaceChip launched the Ultimate with the smartphone Connect feature, its latest product that promises the perfect driving experience. This feature is now available for the C63 and C63 S AMG at an additional cost of USD 50. The RaceChip Ultimate installed in the engine compartment is paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth. The driver thereby has the possibility of choosing, via the RaceChip App, from three different power levels that RaceChip has fine-tuned to AMG’s handmade engine

Efficiency, Sport and Race. This allows tailoring the performance enhancement to the driver’s individual requirements. In addition to its different performance levels, other features of the Ultimate with Connect include: a warm-up timer to protect the engine, the automatic update of the RaceChip optimisation software and the installation of new power modes via firmware update.

The unlocked potential of the C63

The C63 S by AMG already finds itself in the top class of motorsport technology intended for the road. Yet RaceChip’s developmental engineers have proved that, even here, power reserves can be found that are just waiting to be activated. Out of the factory, the 4.0 L V8 boasts over 503 hp and 516 lb-ft. With electronic power enhancement, it has demonstrated 590 hp and 608 lb-ft in testing. This is a performance boost that will certainly be felt on the road and make any driver’s heart race. The C63 S does never need to shy away from going head-to-head with any competing sports car and will impress in terms of acceleration as well as lateral dynamics.

The highest security and quality standards

RaceChip has the highest standards for quality and safety. These are underscored by the extensive testing RaceChip uses to optimally tune the performance enhancement to the specific engine. RaceChip’s optimisation software also ensures that the performance boost is achieved within the ideal rpm range for that engine. The RaceChip Ultimate, with or without the smartphone Connect feature, includes a two-year engine warranty that covers all the essential components of the engine and drive system. An additional five-year product warranty is also included.

Twin powerhouses
