As the world prepares to bid a fond farewell to Mercedes-AMG’s M177 4,0-litre twin-turbo V8 mill in the C63, Manhart has decided to give the ‘hot-V’ engined C63 a proper send off – they’re calling it the Manhart CR 700 Wagon.
Thanks to an in-house turbo performance kit, carbon intake, intercooler upgrade and ECU re mapping, this wild wagon does the 100 to 200 km/h sprint in just 5,5 seconds thanks to its 523 kW and 920 N.m.
To add some thunder to the CR 700’s performance, the C63’s AMG exhaust setup can be combined with either Manhart sports downpipes with 200-cell catalytic converters or completely de-catted race downpipes. Manhart’s engineers have also adapted the AMG Speedshift MCT nine-speed transmission accordingly in order to manage the additional power and torque.
Sitting in each of the wheel-wells are 20-inch Manhart Concave One wheels in satin black with a gold rim. A Manhart coil spring set by H&R is offered, too, allowing infinitely variable height adjustment. No changes have been made to the braking system or the interior of the vehicle pictured, however Manhart do do offer individually configurable upgrades for both the braking system and interior should customers wish to do so.
