Twin-Turbo V8 that should produce 469hp and 479lb-ft of torque whilst the GLC 63 S should get 503hp and 516lb-ft of torque. This definitely shouldn't be anything short of power. Massive front air dam
s to really feed this beast.

You should write to Mercedes about this bloody bin in the picture. They probably will send you out a nice part/extra for telling them......:laugh:

Either that or a picture of them flipping me off with the caption "Well, come take a better one yourself then." LOL

Think the engine can handle a tune to pump out more than 503hp?
Without a doubt. When they release something with 503hp, the engine is designed to run that 503hp extremely safely. Components can handle it no problem, and the AFR is in a really safe zone. Tuning it to push on that engine a little more and even bump it to 515-518hp shouldn't be an issue at all. Could just be a matter of adding a bit more boost and adding/pulling some timing.

I agree and when you look at the numbers, a safe 20% increase in power is another 100HP, enough to easily feel it.
Who knows what the actual threshold is for a safe tune but eventually we should start seeing things come out.

Shouldn't be long at all once they hit the streets fully. These tuners don't waste any time when it comes to the AMG line-up of cars. Never lol.

Expect a tuner, full exhaust, suspension, and wheels at a minimum.

What will help is the fact Mercedes has a lot of vehicles out there, so a tuner that already provides to other Mercedes segments already has some foundation built up, which speeds up the process here.

But regardless of what comes out and from who I will be waiting for someone to be the guinea pig.

Which tuners will you be looking out for?

A shame that they got a special grill on that car, or should I say that our GLC43 grill is used on diesels in the standard A / C / E class models. I think it is nice, but doesn't really look wild enough for my liking. I'd like a V8, but would find it hard to justify when the V6 is so good.

Heck I was glad the 350d wasn't out when I ordered mine as otherwise I couldn't have justified the GLC43 to myself....

I've got the carbon fibre centre console on my 43 and love it. Was only a modest cost option, around £300 if I remember correctly

can't get enough of edition one packages
my neighbor has an edition one c-class and although the changes are subtle, you still know its something special, much like the GLC we see here.

The price for the carbon package really isn't bad at all and definitely worth it in my opinion. Some people do prefer a piano black trim instead but I'm a carbon kinda guy
