The venerable Benz tuner is now offering an aftermarket package that further closes the gap between theC450 (soon to be renamed as the Mercedes-AMG C43) and the more powerful C63. By squeezing an extra 43 horsepower out with its PowerExtra B30-410 kit, the C450’s output jumps from 362 hp to 405 – bridging the divide to the 469-hp C63.
