Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Breaks Cover With Up To 510PS

The all-new Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe is available with two power outputs, 476 PS or 510 PS

Mercedes-AMG has lifted the veils of the C 63 Coupe, the brand’s answer to BMW’s M4 Coupe. Available in two flavors, the C 63 Coupe and C 63 S Coupe, the new model combines a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine with an AMG Ride Control sports suspension featuring adjustable damping and a more impressive design.

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe features a more aggressive body kit, flared front and rear wheel arches, an increased track width and larger wheels. The flared wheel arches make the C 63 Coupe 64 mm (2.52 in) wider at the front and 66 mm (2.59 in) wider at the rear, which obviously helps when it comes to stability and handling. The only body elements it shares with the C-Class Coupe are the doors, roof and boot lid.

Inside, the C 63 Coupe features standard sports seats in ARTICO/microfibre DINAMICA man-made leather or optional Performance seats with a lower seating position and increased side support. AMG-specific controls underscore the motor sport heritage.

The 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine is available in two states of tune: 476PS (469hp) in the C 63 Coupe and 510PS (503hp) in the C 63 S Coupe, both offered as standard with the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sports transmission. Built completely in-house by Mercedes-AMG, the powerplant allows the C 63 Coupe to deliver impressive performance specs. The C 63 S Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, while the C 63 Coupe does it in 4.0 seconds.

This makes the Coupe marginally quicker than the C 63 sedan, thanks to the wider tires and shorter-legged rear-axle ratios. Top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph), but the optional AMG Driver’s Package allows a maximum speed of 290 km/h (180 mph).

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe arrives in dealerships in March 2016.
