Mercedes AMG GT63 S AMG „Cummander“ by Wheelsandmore
No, Wheelsandmore is not planning a makeover and has not switched into a World-of-Warcraft character. The dirty, provocative naming of the Mercedes Benz GT63 AMG has been chosen deliberately and flirts with the terms power and devotion ambiguously. The fact is: Anyone who has taken a seat in this driving machine with over 800 horsepower will currently not excite any other GranTurismo equally quickly. Became curious?
Power upgrades for Mercedes GT63 AMG
With the use of the AMG 4.0 bi-turbo engine it is almost like in the 90s when the same actors in every second erotic film in other constellations excited the fans and friends. AMG also installs the versatile and proven M178 DE40 AL engine in the 4-door GT63 S Coupe and offers the sport-loving customer 2 performance variants with 585 and 639hp engine power. Well that´s not bad at all but people accustomed quickly with power and so this output is similar to some marriages, quite usual and unspectacular boring. There must be more inside…
Wheelsandmore brings fresh impetus to the relationship between man and machine and offers 3 different power levels up to 810hp, regardless of whether 585 or 639PS are available from factory.
The AMG tuner generates 700hp and 975nm of torque by means of software optimization or extremely easy to install plug-and-play tuning module Tec-Tronic.

22 inch wheels and tires for Mercedes GT63 AMG
Just like other manufacturers, Mercedes AMG wants to offer to their customers the maximum possible wheel-tire combination, what makes business not easier for tuners. Optionally, the GT63 AMG rolls out of the sales hall with 275/35/21 and 315/30/21 tires. So there´s not much space for TUV allowed improvement and so far no tuner from Europe has been able to present a suitable 22 inch retrofit for the model type X290. Wheelsandmore took care of the problem and developed appropriate rims for the matching Michelin tires. The tuning company from Germany equips the “Cummander” with black bi-color rims of the type ZV-1 sizing 10.5×22 offset 24 and 11.5×22 offset 22 with Michelin tires of sizes 285/30/22 and 335/25/22. The face of the rims has been cnc trimmed to the original look and sealed with a clear varnish.
Wheelsandmore offers the complete wheel set with customizable central locking nut and TPMS sensors from 5,882 EURO.
Suspension for Mercedes GT63 AMG
The tuning conversion is completed by a lowering module that can be controlled via smartphone app, which enables the customer to set the lowering of the air suspension freely via a Bluetooth connection.
