No question: The precious SLS 63 AMG is the present top dog of the Mercedes Benz portfolio and deserves to be referred to as the current synonym for luxurious sportiness. There is hardly any other brand of the sports car category with such a brilliant mastery of transition through different worlds like the SLS 63 AMG feeling at home on the red carpet in very much the same way as on the asphalt of the race track.
Whether in the spectacular swing door version or the spacious roadster, the SLS 63 AMG is propelled by a high-torque V8 driving mechanism with a 6.2 liter cubic capacity and up to 571 horse power capable of developing a maximum torque of 650 Newton meters. No further spectacular performance surge can be extracted from this fully exhausted driving mechanism by using pure “electronic tuning”.
Technicians of the mcchip-dkr from Mechernich in North Eifel, who are specialists in such power upgrades in their own rights, were of course, aware of this fact and therefore upgraded their power program for the racy car from Stuttgart with the “MC700” compressor kit that is obtainable in two upgrade levels. In addition to the pure compressor kit and a stage 3 software upgrade, the first stage of charging using a mechanically driven compressor also includes a performance-enhancing high-end exhaust system as from the catalyzer version with the valve control system of the project partner Capristo Exhaust Systems. 680 HP and a maximum torque of 770 Newton meters mean a significant and palpable power surge. The price of the first “MC700“ upgrade stage is EUR 69,900.00.
The export version (without the technical inspection seal of TÜV) containing additional sports catalyzers and an even more frisky stage 4 software is slightly more aggressive in its motion: 706 HP and 793 Nm are presently the ultimate benchmark! The price of the export version is EUR 78,999.00.
For both “MC700“ performance stages, mcchip-dkr requires a conversion period of five to seven working days.
