C63 AMG Coupé unveiled

C63 AMG Coupé unveiled

Following the debut of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé, the German brand is now presenting the new top of the range version, the C63 AMG Coupé. This version will have its’ world premiere at next month’s New York Motor Show.

The C63 AMG Coupé is powered by AMG’s M156 engine, a 6.2 litre powertrain with a power output of 457hp and torque of 600Nm. Thanks to it the coupe is able to reach a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited) and accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds.

The AMG engine is combined with a seven-speed MCT (multiclutch transmission), a development of Mercedes-Benz's 7G-tronic unit. This version adds a wet clutch in place of the torque converter, and a 2.85:1 final drive to the rear wheels.

When equipped with the Performance package, power is increased to a total of 487 hp, with speed limited to a maximum 250 km/h. In this case the C63 AMG is able to reach the 100km/h in 4.3 seconds.

Differences between the standard and AMG version of the C-Class Coupé include a deeper front bumper with larger air cooling ducts mounted on each side with LED running lights placed above the duct rather than through the middle.

A reworked grille now features a more prominent chrome surround and single horizontal slat dividing the three-pointed star. At the back the C63 AMG features a subtle lip spoiler attached to the trailing edge of the trunk and a redesigned bumper with a black diffuser element that houses four chromed exhaust pipes. The standard wheel package uses 18-inch alloys shod with 235/40 (front) and 255/35 (rear) tires.

Inside the C 63 AMG has been equipped with the latest version of Mercedes-Benz's Command entertainment and navigation system along with a long line of standard safety features, including attention assist and blind-spot assist.
