Gordon Su represents Mercedes-Benz True North Car Club (MBTN) with his 2008 Mercedes Benz C63. He obviously loves carbon fiber. He's installed a splitter, lip, and hood made of carbon fiber. In addition, there is extra carbon fiber under the hood, along with long tube headers, port and polished heads, and an ECU tune from Eurocharge Canada with a Capristo valve exhaust.
Lots of interior pieces is also covered with carbon fiber - from all the accents to the back seats; everything you can think of Gordon has tried it.
The C63 sits on Japanese Volk Racing ZE40 wheels in gunmetal blue along with semi-racing R888R slicks from Toyo Tires. KW coilovers were added to give Gordon the desired ride height.
The motor is without a doubt Gordon's favourite component. This is an all naturally aspirated build. In addition to the instant power and throttle response, the sounds it creates is almost musical for Gordon. He has really enjoyed the naturally-aspirated part, but the build was intended to house a Weistec supercharger. So when he installs a blower, it will have an endless amount of horsepower. It currently has 500 horsepower at the wheels, and he anticipates having around 600 horsepower after the supercharger, which he believes will be sufficient for city driving.
