    How to tastefully modify a Mercedes-Benz - HRE and Wheelsboutique tackle Tony Kanaan's W204 C63 Black Series

    A Mercedes-Benz on aftermarket rims is nothing new. The problem is most people go for bling style big heavy chrome rims. Most people are not modifying a C63 AMG Black Series though and most people are not Tony Kanaan. For those not familiar Tony Kanaan is a Brazilian race car driver who is also an automotive enthusiast. He lives in Florida and has had several tastefully modified cars over the years ranging from 996 Turbos featured in magazines to this C63 Black Series you see here.

    The C63 Black Series is basically perfect out of the box with its aggressive bodywork. Wheelsboutique ordered HRE P44SC rims in a brushed titanium finish that look classy and right at home on the Black Series. The car was also lowered and tinted. The carbon overlay HRE centercap is a very nice subtle touch.

    This is how it's done people, sometimes less is more.

    Agreed. Think he even had a E46 M3 turbo... not 100% on that.

    Aero package but he removed the rear wing?? Nicely done, but I'm surprised that a race car driver would do that. Guess he doesn't planning in tracking it....also the 20's would hurt on track performance. I'd take JRCart's C BS over this one any day. For what he spent on wheels and tires he could have had carbon ceramics and better performance. To each his own I guess but I think what he did to it is lame.

    The guys real track toys probably make this look like a GT car to him.

    For sure, but if you just want the bling and look cool then drive a Bentley or an S65. Just seems counterintuitive to do what he did to a Black Series.

    I'm cool with it, it's a street car.

    No doubt, but that's my point. he bought one of the most radical street cars you can buy and toned it down ? Like I said, counterintuitive but to each his own. His CLK BS was done very tastefully too.

    I don't consider it all that toned down personally. It's just lowered on nice rims. It's not like he chose heavy bling styled rims or anything. The car will still handle great and it looks nice.

    Some of TK's other rides, past and present. Probably missing quite a few.
