    Article

    Even when I am not in America my car pops up. I believe the shoot must have been done early this year or late last year as the engine bay layout looks slightly different now.

    What state of tune was the car in when they got to sample it for the article? Says 740 hp so this is the same or similar setup as to what I experienced?

    Joe, they have been tweaking and I am not sure at what stage the guy drove although based upon when the article was released, he would have driven it several months ago and at that point the car still had the mild tune (and smaller SC) on it.

    I see, so likely similar to what I saw.

    I'll probably be promoting this to the front page, I need to read the article over. I wish we had something a little higher res as on this screen it is tougher to see the text.

    Is the magazine already available on newsstands?

    BenzBoost member ecampbell's Weistec Supercharged CLK63 Black Series featured in the April 2012 Mercedes Enthusiast

    Congratulations to BenzBoost member ecampbell as well as Weistec Engineering for their feature in the April 2012 issue of the Mercedes Enthusiast magazine. This is a magazine based out of the UK so it may be tough to find the issue in the USA although we definitely recommend members keep their eyes out for it or order it online. This is the same Black Series BenzBoost had the pleasure of sampling in July of last year before it underwent further modification. Merc Enthusiast has similar glowing impressions of the car. Check out the article here: http://www.weistec.com/press.html or in the photos below. Once again, congratulations to Weistec and ecampbell.
