Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series Coupe
Having just unveiled the new C63 AMG Coupe at the New York Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz has one more high-performance C-Class up its sleeve. On the heels of that debut comes a report that AMG’s upcoming C63 AMG Black Series Coupe will arrive packing just over 500 horsepower from a tweaked version of the same engine. Wild Speed, a designer and renderer at BenzBoost, has released his own vision of what the highly anticipated Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe will look like.
When the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe debuts, expect it to differentiate itself from the rest of the C-Class world with a lower stance and significantly wider and more aggressive bodywork, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it weighed less, too. The C63 AMG Black Series Coupe will reportedly carry a 5.5-liter turbocharged V8 power plant, although enthusiasts are still holding their breath at the possibility that the car will be powered by an improved variant of the 6.2L M156 V8 engine.
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe
When a new Mercedes-Benz model like the C-Class Coupe debuts, it’s usually just a matter of time until the AMG version comes along. Mercedes-Benz announced on Sunday that its 2012 C63 AMG coupe would arrive in dealer showrooms in September, on the same timeline as the revised C63 AMG sedan. The coupe will be shown at the New York auto show next month.
The basic engine in both C63 AMG models is the familiar AMG-tuned 6.2-liter V8, which delivers 451 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. An optional performance package pushes output to 481 hp. With that package, top speed climbs from 155 mph to 174 mph, and 0-60 acceleration is trimmed from 4.4 to 4.3 seconds. Both cars also feature AMG’s Speedshift MCT seven-speed gearbox.
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Affalterbach Edition
There is no doubt that the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is one outstanding high-performance sedan. Catering to its Canadian fan base, Mercedes-Benz recently unveiled the special Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Affalterbach Edition at the 2011 Montreal International Auto Show.
The Affalterbach Edition (it’s named after the German town in which AMG’s skunkworks reside), this C63 wears a unique Magno Allanite Grey paint that is accented with red brake calipers, 19-inch black alloy wheels, carbon fiber mirror shells and a subtle lip spoiler. AMG has also fitted the Performance Package as standard, giving the Affalterbach edition 481 horsepower for a 4.4-second sprint to 62 miles per hour – 100 km/h in Canadian metric terms.
