Velocity Factor believes there’s nothing’s better than a customer who comes back for us to work on their new car after enjoying what we did previously! A short time ago, this customer brought us his beautiful Jeep Cherokee SRT-8 to which we installed a RIPP / Vortech Supercharger Kit, did custom work on his exhaust system replete with remote cut-outs, and new brakes all around. After making his latest purchase of a beautiful Mercedes C63S AMG Coupe, he immediately brought it to us here at Velocity Factor for a host of incredible upgrades!
Starting with the wheels, a set of beautiful BC Forged HCS04S, 20 inch, 3-piece wheels were selected in Gloss Gunmetal with black hardware. These wheels are strong, lightweight, and when it comes to cost are hands-down the best deal going on custom forged wheels! Complimenting the wheels, we installed Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires all around running 305/30/ZR20 in the rear, and 265/30/ZR20 in the front. Next up came a set of quality H&R Sport Lowering Springs giving the car a lower center of gravity, aggressive stance, and even better handling ability without sacrificing ride comfort. Velocity Factor is proud to be an H&R stocking dealer for many years now. A precision 4-wheel alignment was performed to ensure the car will track straight and provide even tire wear.
The next step was addressing the power. The M177 twin turbo 4.0L V8 from AMG in this car is a beast to begin with, and there’s a lot of potential left on the table for more! A set of Wesitec Engineering Stainless Steel Downpipes were installed along with their VTA Adapters, Performance Air Filters, and of course, a Weistec ECU Upgrade. The combination of these have brought the car from 503 HP and 516 Torque to an astounding 701 Horsepower and 679 ft/lbs of Torque! To say the Weistec upgrades made a huge difference is an understatement, and there’s even more left to gain with the addition of Weistec upgraded turbochargers, Water-Methanol Injection, and more!
With the power having been addressed, a carbon fiber diffuser from RW Carbon was installed, and new Brembo replacement brake rotors and brake pads were put on to ensure the stopping power matched the horsepower. This customer’s car came with bright red Brembo calipers with “AMG” logos but wanted something a little sleeker. Velocity Factor refinished all of the brake calipers in a beautiful gloss black with silver “AMG” logos to give the customer the look he wanted. Last, but not least with the car having been slightly used we had our dent removal specialist remove every single ding, and then proceeded to do a full paint correction to remove all the scratches and swirls in the clear coat after which a full multi-year ceramic coating was applied to make the car look better than new with protection to keep it that way!
The end result? A VERY happy customer! Take a look at some of the pictures and see for yourself. This car can run with supercars, looks amazing, sounds absolutely insane with the exhaust valves open yet docile with them closed, and is an absolute neck-breaker in terms of performance and looks! Velocity Factor is proud to have done this build and as of this writing a host of additional carbon fiber parts are on the way along with de-chroming the car in every way. This has certainly turned out to be a one-of-a-kind AMG!
