Modified CLS63 AMGs Duke It Out

By -

Pair of Mercedes-Benz CLS63 sedans pack a combined 1,600 horsepower worth of AMG power.

The W218 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is powered by a 5.5-liter biturbo V8 that delivers 518 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque in stock form. When you add a few simple bolt-ons and a tune, those power numbers skyrocket and the videos here feature a pair of CLS63 sedans going head-to-head on the street with a combined 1,600 horsepower.

The Competitors

This clash between a pair of W218 CLS63 AMG sedans was originally shared to the forum in a thread by DbImok63 from the YouTube channel of Dima G.

The camera car is a W218 CLS63 AMG with a Modern Horsepower Stage 2 ECU and a full exhaust system, leading to somewhere in the area of 780 horsepower. The other AMG is fitted with a Gorilla Racing Stage 4 package, delivering somewhere in the area of 820 horsepower.

Some people commenting on the initial post don’t believe that those power numbers are accurate and each of the videos shows why.

Dueling CLS63 AMGs

The OP shared five videos of the two AMG sedans racing, including four roll races and one from a dig. In each and every one of those videos, the camera car basically slaughters the other, beating it by bus-lengths from a dig and roll. Because the results were the same in every video, we have only included the dig video (above) and one of the roll videos (below). You can check out all of the videos in the thread on the forum, but these two clips tell the story.

Whether going from a roll or a dig, the MHP CLS63 immediately starts walking away from the Gorilla Racing Benz, putting the light-colored car in the rearview mirror in less than 20 seconds.
