    • Weistec Stage III supercharged W204 C63 Black Series versus Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560-4 from a roll

      Interesting race to see here due to Gallardo being involved although it is terribly one sided. The Weistec C63 AMG Black Series once again shows the power of the 3.0 liter twin screw blower on the M156 V8 even at "only" 11 psi of boost with a 91 octane pump gas tune. The LP-560 is no slouch with stock trap speeds in the 127 mile per hour range capable of low 11's in the 1/4 mile in stock form. That puts the power of the supercharged C63 AMG in perspective.


      The Gallardo appears to do well by virtue of its all wheel drive at the start of the race but as soon as the cars stretch their legs it is simply game over and a difference measured in bus lengths. The C63 Black Series puts out somewhere in the high 600's to the wheels and that shows as its power at the wheels exceeds what this apparently stock Gallardo LP560 has at the crank.

      One sided? Sure, but sill fun to watch a car make a new Lamborghini look slow.

        Puts the Stage III blower in perspective. Great stock internal power.

        Bwahahahaha!

        Nice 'sleeper' if you want to call it that. I mean, most see a Mercedes, not a C63 AMG Black. And those who know about an AMG don't know about the SC. Just get rid of the wing though.


        Cheers.

        I didn't realize the Lambo was quite so fast in stock trim, that really puts the C63's performance in perspective after seeing what it did in this race. I remember the "AMG Hammer" from the late 80's...in it's time that car was an absolute beast. Now look what you can have if money permits...

        Wing is part of the factory aero package, it was wind tunnel and track engineered and the aero package is amongst the most desired option for the C Black Series.

        Drag is legitimate even on heavy or light cars especially as speeds rise.
