At the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Mercedes-AMG is launching the powerful C63, top-of-the-line C-Class. But it’s going to be an expensive car and will not be available immediately. So, if someone wants a C-Class with a more dynamic look, they should check what Carlsson has to offer for the new C-Class.
Currently, Mercedes-Benz is offering on the new C-Class the AMG Sport trim. That is nothing like the genuine AMG C63. Carlsson thought that this trim could be enhanced. So the company offers a styling package that transforms pretty much even the most basic C-Class.
The kit comprises of a front lip apron on the front bumper, side vents in the rear bumper, a not-easy-to-miss diffuser along with two pairs of round big diameter exhausts or the nice and elegant spoiler on the boot lid.
There are also different alloy wheel options available, up to 20″ and with a more daring design than Mercedes offering. Carlsson has also revised the suspension. It can either a basic version, that lowers the car by 30 mm, or a more complex one, that has height adjustable coil-over.
Although one can opt for a large variety of trims from the Mercedes-Benz official catalogue, Carlsson makes a step forward. The tuner can satisfy any wishes in terms of leather and upholstery. The company offers custom made fittings and even illuminated floor mats or pedals.
For the moment, there are no technical upgrades for the engines. But they are going to be available at the beginning of the next year. Until then, the C-Class by Carlsson is a good example that tuning does not only mean power, but also refinement.
