Usually power figures over 600 hp are reserved for supercars. So what happens when you need more space for kids and shopping bags, but still want to drive really fast? Well, the HMS Tuning H63 RS700 might be what you’re looking for.
HMS Tuning is a German company based in Malterdingen, an industrial town close to the Black Forest mountains. They based their project on a facelifted MB C 63 AMG T-Modell and went on to build a real rocket. The font bumper and fenders are made from carbon fiber and are sourced from a C 63 AMG Black Series coupe. The rear bumper is also made from carbon and it’s based on the C 63 AMG Black Series unit. The rear fenders were widened in order to fit the E 63 AMG rear end. HMS designed and produced the carbon fiber sideskirts to complete the aggressive look.
The crew at HMS Tuning also installed a supercharger, which boosted power to at least 750 hp and 900 Nm. Other engine modifications include SLS AMG camshafts, K&N air filters, forged pistons, custom HMS Perfomance headers, an engine and transmission oil cooler and another one for the power steering, 76mm downpipes and a stainless steel exhaust with switchable valves. The stock 7-speed MCT Speedshift transmission was upgraded in order to cope with the power and torque this engine delivers.
The car needed a special suspension for this, so a KW Clubsport coilover set was developed for this special project. The H63 features RS6 brakes in the front, with 6-piston calipers and 402mm carbon ceramic discs. In the back HMS installed 4-pot calipers with 370mm carbon ceramic discs. It sits on OZ Racing Ultraleggera HLT wheels, measuring 10×19’ upfront and 11×19’ in the back, wrapped in 275/30R19 and 295/30R19 Michelin tires.
Since this is their icon project, HMS tuning took really good care of the interior, almost every surface was covered in Alcantara with contrast stitching. They even did this with the front headlamps. Other interior modifications include a SLS AMG shifter, suede wrapping the OEM steering wheel and reupholstered Recaro Sportster CS seats with side airbags and heating.
