The 4.0-liter V8 engine of the M177 series performed well, both in stock Mercedes and in sports versions from AMG. Under the hood of the Mercedes-AMG C63 S station wagon, it provided 510 horsepower and 700 Nm. Manhart has shown that this is not all that the mighty V8 is capable of.
The usual Mercedes-Benz C-Class station wagon was first embodied in the sports version of the AMG C63, later a more productive version of the C63 S came out, which became the basis for tuning in the Manhart studio. Thus, for the station wagon, this is the third stage of strengthening.
The Manhart CR 700 Wagon received a turbo kit, an updated turbocharger, a carbon air intake, an updated intercooler and a re-tuned ECU. As a result, the power increased to 712 liters. sec., and a torque of up to 920 Nm. Thanks to the changes applied to the AMG Speedshift MCT 9-speed gearbox, these performance figures enable the Manhart CR 700 to accelerate from 100 to 200 kilometers per hour in just 5.5 seconds.
Visually, the Manhart CR 700 carries the typical tuner design theme, combining black and gold decor. The signature Concave One wheels with a black spot also have gold stripes on the rim.
The suspension has also been tuned with Manhart coil springs. Manhart’s braking system and interior are ready to be upgraded according to the individual wishes of the customer. The tuner does not publicly disclose prices for the Manhart CR 700.
