Tuners Manhart have taken the wraps off their 750 horsepower Mercedes-AMG CR 700 and it is quiet a machine. The German company are renowned for their sophisticated tuning packages that are offered on a host of different cars. Their most recent project is this, the CR 700 that is based on the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe.
In standard form the C 63 S produces 510 horsepower and 700 newton meters of torque, perfectly respectable figures. Manhart tuned the power stats to 11 and the results are 750 horsepower and a staggering 900 newtons or torque.
The performance enhancements also mean the car sounds even more brutal than in stock form. This is one savage speed freak! 0-100 times and other statistics are yet to be made official, but expect the CR 700 to be significantly faster than the factory car that is by no measure a slouch traveling from 0-100 km/h in less than 4 seconds.
