Modern performance cars are so unbelievably capable, yet they ask for minimal compromise in return. That's a great thing for sports car buyers. But a by-product of this is that it leaves aftermarket tuners very little on which to improve.

Take the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe, for example. On paper, it's everything one could ask for in a fast-yet-quasi-practical-car. It's got more than 500 horsepower, sounds fantastic, is super comfortable, comes packed with myriad tech and convenience features and it's handsome to boot. What's to improve?

Steve Dinan recently started a new company called CarBahn Autoworks, and he's on a mission to find ways to make the already-lovely C63 S even better. If Steve's last name sounds familiar, it's because his old company Dinan Engineering was one of the most dominant forces in the BMW performance aftermarket and American road racing. Steve decided that there was more to life than fiddling with Bimmers, so CarBahn works on all kinds of things, even going as far as campaigning an Audi R8 GT4 in the Michelin Pilot Challenge series.
