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.

First in the list of features is sports ‘spoiler skirt’ under the front bumper, and then there’s the awesome diffuser fins in the back to make sure you won’t launch like an airplane in top gear. Both of these are made from carbon fiber by the way. The sports ‘screw thread’, another mind-boggling modification, suspension system is quite marvelous, allowing the driver to fine tune the ride from inside the cockpit. And then there’s the stainless steel exhaust system, also adjustable from the inside, allowing the driver to go from low, mid to high flow depending on sound preference and performance needs. The Supersport will be rolling on 3-piece 20-inch RS-1 lightweight wheels.
Like all Mansory cars, the G-Couture’s exterior is stylish and luxurious. Carbon is used in its entire exterior up to the lower window edge and the roof of the SUV, contributing to the overall performance of the car. Mansory said that it has used the autoclave-prepreg-method, which compresses the carbon so strongly in a special pressure chamber that no more air inclusions remain in the material. Due to the cost, this is a processing method only used in aviation and aerospace.
