Of course, the main additions were made to the car's exterior, but their are not as radical as you would expect. Avus has painted the mirror covers, the front grille, the roof, the Mercedes emblem and the bar below in black, to give it a more aggressive stance. But that's not really tuning, is it?

Translate this into speed and the Avus C63 AMG tops at 320 km/hour (199 mph). The factory tuned C63 has a top speed of 250 km/hour (155 mph), so do the math...You of course have to be able to stop safely, so Avus provides the C63 with 8 piston brake calipers (380 mm diameter discs), hidden beneath the 19 inch AMG multi-spoke wheels.
