The Mercedes-AMG C63 perfectly embodies the core of the performance and sports car brand and now offers, in the guise of the Sedan, Coupe and Cabriolet even better dynamics and a more modern interior with extended individualization options.
Powerful V8 engines, thrilling driving dynamics and distinctive, motorsport-inspired equipment have turned the top-of-the-range models of the C-Class from Mercedes-AMG into best-sellers. The Handcrafted AMG 4.0- liter V8 biturbo engine is available in two output variants rated at 469 hp or 503 hp for all three body styles and delivers a performance on a par with that of a sports car. Greater driving pleasure is guaranteed also by the redefined drive programs, which allow further differentiation of the road performance of the eight-cylinder engine. Visually, the looks of the new C 63 are even more visually appealing: the AMG-specific radiator trim underscores the brand identity while emphasizing the muscular appearance. The interior benefits from an optional fully digital cockpit with unmistakable AMG displays and the new generation of AMG steering wheels.
The impressive driving dynamics are based, among other things, on the elaborately retuned AMG RIDE CONTROL steel suspension with adaptive damping adjustment, electronically controlled rear-axle limited-slip differential, which is now standard on all C 63 variants, and dynamic engine mounts, which are part of the standard equipment on all C 63 S models.
The exterior of the new C 63 underscores the brand identity of the performance models with the AMG-specific radiator trim with vertical louvers in high-gloss chrome. With a redesigned transverse fin in the outer air inlets, the front bumper in A-wing design gives an even stronger emphasis to the width of the vehicle.
When viewed from the side, eye-catching features include the sporty side skirts plus aerodynamically optimized AMG light-alloy wheels. Their specifically designed outer aero rings and spoke geometry which has been optimized in the wind tunnel help to improve air flow around the wheels and thus increase aerodynamic efficiency. The developers aimed for the optimal combination of aerodynamics, weight and brake cooling, for maximum performance and optimum efficiency.
The rear view, too, with two remodeled twin tailpipe trim elements in high- gloss chrome, has a muscular look, which is reinforced by the new, more expressive diffuser. The S-versions are additionally provided with a diffuser board. The lateral air curtain look of the rear bumper makes for improved air flow at the rear end, as does the spoiler lip on the trunk lid, which is painted in the vehicle color. The optional AMG Aerodynamics package for the C 63 Coupe provides an even sportier look: the more expressive front splitter, spoiler lip with integral Gurney flap, broader side skirt inserts, flics in the rear bumper and more expressive diffuser insert are finished in high-gloss black.
