As I write this, SEMA is probably just over an hour in of a gazillion people walking through the halls at the Las Vegas Convention center. So for the rest of us that are still living in reality at our desks, we thought we would put together a little video and some images of how this project car came to be. About 4 weeks ago Vivid Racing bought this brand new CLS63 V8 BiTurbo. Cooperating with Vossen Wheels, we wanted to put together an elegant, yet defined vehicle for their booth. With not much on the market, we put our in-house R&D department to work. Incooperation with Brembo, KW, Agency Power, and RENNTech, we were able to assemble the first official VR700 kit.
The carbon fiber work was done through our own clay modeling process to sculp and design our finished products. Up front is a 3 piece front lip spoiler. The side fenders now feature a carbon fiber trim with badge placement. The trunk has a beautiful rear decklid spoiler that fits around the Mercedes emblem. And the final amazing piece, our rear diffuser. Under the hood is a RENNTech ECU flash which takes the car to 670 crank HP. In addition to our Agency Power valvetronic exhaust system, a simple 700 HP is achieved. To take the exhaust 1 step further, we designed CNC machined billet aluminum exhaust tips and had them powdercoated black for a stunning exit. Keeping the car low to the ground is a set of the KW Coilovers with rear lowering links. The final in-your-face add on are these giant Brembo brakes. The front 16inch 6piston rotor is massive with the same in the rear using a 4piston caliper. We custom painted them here at Vivid Racing. As soon as we receive wheel pictures, we will post them up. So enjoy this video and gallery images!
All these parts can be had on our Mercedes CLS63 parts store here.
