Mercedes specialist MEC Design is taking a break from working on the W222 S-Class as they were tasked with the job of upgrading a W212 Mercedes E63 AMG. It is a light treatment, but one that makes the E63 a lot more desirable.
MEC Design focuses on three main area in this tuning program: suspension, wheels, and exhaust system. The E63 is pretty much perfect in other areas, what with a 5.5 liter bi-turbo V8 engine under the bonnet, a classy executive body and a super deluxe interior.
So add some “tricks” to the E63’s business-like repertoire, MEC hooks it up with a set of meCCon Series Type CCd5 wheels in sizes 9×20 front and 10,5×20 rear, with tires 255 and 295 respectively. The wheels wouldn’t have looked so good on the car if it weren’t for the MEC lowering module that drops the ride height rather substantially.
Last but not least, MEC equips this Mercedes E63 AMG with their special stainless steel exhaust system with rear muffler and silencer or replacement pipes. It comes with two sound modes of Earthquake and Apocalypse which are pretty self-explanatory. The E63’s standard exhaust system is very good, but the roar is nothing like that of MEC’s.
