The M157 is flat out a beast of a motor even in stock form. When tuned, well, the thing just gets even more insane. Just look at the video below for proof where Carlsson's CK63 effortlessly gets to 207 miles per hour from a stop and does so very quickly. Carlsson claims they increased the output of this Performance Package CLS63 AMG from 557 horsepower to 652 horsepower. No dynographs to prove it but the video certainly shows some stupid fast acceleration so no reason to doubt the claims although European tuners should start supporting their output figures.
Regardless, the car is just beast. In addition to the tune there are minor aerodynamic modifications to the car including a front lip and rear spoiler which likely add more drag hurting the potential top speed although likely making the car feel more planted. Seeing the Carlsson aerodynamic pieces and wheels support 207 miles per hour certainly adds to their design credibility. Check out the video below.
