If going for the production car land speed record isn't your cup of chai skim latte, there's no need to go for the Brabus Rocket. The Mercedes tuning haus also offers a more sedate build of the AMG CLS63. That is, the S63, which boasts a tuning kit affecting a power boost from 507 hp to to 550 hp and torque from 465 to 479 lb-ft. The exercise involves ECU reprogramming, with a free-flow air filter thrown in for good measure, and results in a slight improvement to its zero-to-60 time (4.3 seconds compared to a stock 4.5 seconds). But gone is the 155 mph limiter, in favor of a 205 mph top speed. The kit will fit on any AMG product with the 6.2-liter V8. It's also Euro IV compliant, you greenie, you.
