    • GAD Motors W204 C63 AMG Black Series with an M157 twin turbo V8 swap and 4Matic all wheel drive goes 9.945 @ 142 in the 1/4 mile

      It is nice to finally have some performance numbers for the GAD W204 C63 AMG Black Series with an M157 twin turbo 5.5 liter V8 swap and 4Matic all wheel drive. We have seen the car demolish a Porsche 991 Turbo S from a roll and the 142.39 miles per hour trap speed explains why that happened as it is over 13 miles per hour higher than what the 991 Turbo S is capable of stock.


      GAD did not just stop at swapping in the AMG M157 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 in lieu of the naturally aspirated 6.2 liter M156 but they also added a Mercedes 4Matic all wheel drive drivetrain. That allows the C63 to hook up well off the line with all that turbo torque as evidenced by the 1.65 60 foot time.

      As far as modifications to the M157 it features GAD upgraded turbochargers:


      We do not have exact horsepower or torque figures but something around 750+ horses and 800+ lb-ft of torque is likely the range.

      Performance like this certainly should make AMG fans wish that Mercedes stuck the M157 in lighter chassis' than the factory offers like this W204 C63 for example. A 9 second all wheel drive twin turbo 5.5 liter V8 C-Class is just awesome.

        That 230.67 is 143.33 miles per hour. That's a fast car.

        Sticky and this is with an average 60ft: 1.69! With a better 60ft, i.e. smth. like 1.5 they can go into the area of 9.7 easily. And please don't forget that this is a street car, not smth like Weistec CLK which recorded 9.1 but you can hardly even think of driving it somewhere else than on a dragstrip.

        I am really waiting for the same or even better record from E63 4matic at Moscow Unlim500+ and certainly in battles against 800+AWHP APR/Total Race Audi RS7 ;-).

        I would like first clarify something wasn't clear for us.


        @ October 2013 GAD motor in WCF explain that there C63 BS equipped with M157 boosted to 850hp + the engine has forged internals & add more RPM on that over 7000x


        Here's the link:


        http://www.worldcarfans.com/11310246...d-packs-850-hp


        Surprising that the same vehicle with the 850 package run 10.79 in Yas island drag strip & here's the video below :


        https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uYPfz3pDPek


        Recently GAD Motors had introduce there new Top mount intercooler


        http://www.benzboost.com/showthread....nt-Intercooler


        So if 10.79 need A 850 hp with the hogue stuff listed from modfiction
        which renntech CLS need only Turbo upgrade on stock engine & better trap






        So wounding going toward the the 9 seconds what was more add to this vehicle ?? What's that horse power needed to at least 1300 ~ 1500 @ the crank ?? + that a C63 BS wight comparing to a CLS63 is much lighter
        lots of hidden things with GAD Motors


        Finally i saw @Gad6363 the owner of this car to explain for us welcome

        There are no hidden things with my car when ever GAD develop a new product I add it to my car, yes the first time I took my car to Yas Drag it ran 10.79 (pump gas) it was the same time I also posted a video of the 991 turbo S race, from that time till today GAD has added two fuel system upgrades "one upgrade for the low and one for the high", GAD high pressure sensor for high boost, "at that time I was running low boost" later they added the intercoolers which is amazing made my car go to another level, my BS has 4matic system it weight ~1750kg. Plus the guys tuned my gearbox TCU now it shifts in lower RPM which I think is much better, I have faster gear changes you can see the difference in the two videos old and new. And if my car is 1300 ~ 1500 why not that's an achievement with a big variance but hai when you talk about figures you must back it up! The petrol heads know what's real and what's not, by the way GAD products are available to customers you can build the same car with them and make the same numbers! Just to let you know you will see better numbers inshallah ;-)

        Then if the same setup available for the customers and they can run the same time 9 second with the M157 Engine, then why don't we see the 9 second or at least Low 10 second with your Cls63 which has the same setup as your C63 BS.


        As you know your cls63 ran 10.6x & it was the best time for your car and the run was with mixed fuel.


        And we all know that your cls63 has ( upgraded Turbo - TCU upgraded - top mounted intercooler etc.. Exactly the same setup as your BS C63


        Can you tell me why don't your cls63 shows any numbers at the drag and the BS C63 ran 9's !?

        I don't understand the PPP stick riding and GAD hating. It is what it is these guys ran the numbers and his car hauls ass what makes you think there is something weird going on. I still think the PPP SL63 is the fastest m157 correct? Congratulations to the owner gad6363 for a badass build. This should push the platform further and is good competition

        This is absolutely an amazing car and time but silly to compare to the weistec car. It certainly is impressive that its still in a streetable car and the m157 will surpass eventually but its really not as close as you think. Weistec car went 9.1 @ 155 mph that's .8 seconds faster and a huge difference of 13mph trap speed. Not something insignificant especially at this level. For comparison this car is as close to the weistec clk as a stock turbo cls63 running 10.7 @ 129MPH is to this c63 black series.

        Setups get tweaked over time. Maybe the CLS63 doesn't have the fuel system upgrades.

        Regardless, if his CLS63 AMG isn't 4Matic and the C63 is with the same weight and more upgrades it's no surprise it's faster.

        My CLS63 is heavier plus it has longer gears and the 10.6 run was with a very bad 60'
        I will be bringing her to the track soon and I hope I will bring that 10.6 down
        you have to understand we are not done yet the cars still have HUGE potentials
