Manhart Unleashes the C63 S E Performance with 725hp

In a bold move, Manhart has taken the already potent hybrid C63 and pushed it to new heights of performance. While power and torque were never lacking in the hybrid C63, that didn't deter Manhart from enhancing its capabilities.

Surprisingly, there are indeed four-cylinder C63s in existence, with some even available for sale in the UK. Despite our efforts to procure one for testing beyond sunny Spain, our attention has shifted to aftermarket tuning. Enter Manhart, offering its formidable CRE 700 package for the C63, following in the footsteps of Brabus's electrified AMG enhancements.

The CRE 700 package refrains from modifying batteries or motors, instead focusing on extracting more power from the already formidable 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. With the addition of an MHtronik control unit, power is boosted by 45hp and torque by 74lb ft, bringing the M139l engine's output to 514hp and 476lb ft. Consequently, total outputs skyrocket to an astonishing 725hp and a staggering 826lb ft of torque. Enhanced exhaust components promise a notably more aggressive sound, elevating the driving experience to new levels.

Visually, the CRE 700 exudes a more menacing demeanor, courtesy of a 20mm drop on H&R springs and subtle red accents on the standard 20-inch AMG wheels. The interior remains untouched, as Manhart deemed further enhancements unnecessary.

For enthusiasts seeking over 700hp in a C-Class, the CRE 700 package is available for purchase now. Manhart assures that it's a plug-and-play solution, easily installed without affecting the original engine control unit. Priced at €3,899 or £3,350, it's a modest investment for the monumental performance gains it delivers, especially when compared to the price of a £100k AMG.
