Kicherer has introduced their new Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Yachting Edition. Looking tastefully restrained, the model features a Star Graphite exterior with carbon fiber accents and 20- / 21-inch alloy wheels. Inside, there's premium leather upholstery, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and contrast piping. The twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine has been massaged to develop 625 PS (460 kW / 616 hp) and 860 Nm (634 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 100 PS (74 kW / 99 hp) and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft). This enables the model to hit a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). The tuner also installed a suspension lowering module, high-performance brakes and a limited slip differential.
