Mercedes Benz C63 AMG

The new C 63 AMG
A 6.3-litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine, 336 kW (457 hp), 600 Nm of torque, 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, top speed 250 km/h – the specification and performance data of the new C 63 AMG speak for themselves.

But the only way to really appreciate the calibre of this exceptional vehicle is to drive it. The fifth generation of the AMG C-Class offers a perfect blend of extraordinarily impressive performance and expressive design. Outstanding power and agility are guaranteed by the combination of the AMG V8 engine and the perfectly matched AMG sports suspension with a newly developed, wider front axle and AMG speed-sensitive sports steering. The 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission ensures optimum delivery of engine power to the road, enhances driving dynamics with its ultra-smooth downshifts and makes for an even more enjoyable drive with its throttle-blip function. The new, specially optimised three-stage Electronic Stability Program ESP® and the AMG high-performance brake system also play key roles in delivering a safe and enjoyable driving experience.

But the really great thing about the C 63 AMG is that it is a genuine Mercedes-Benz in every respect – with all that that implies with regard to long-distance comfort, handling and safety – and offers an ideal combination of high performance and everyday practicality.

True attraction: the design
The C 63 AMG looks powerful even from the outside. Take for example the new engine bonnet with two pronounced powerdomes as well as the special AMG radiator grille with its central star and two chromed louvres. The chrome-edged fog lamps which extend outwards emphasise the width of the vehicle, as do the flared front wings. The side air vents in the front apron provide an outlet for the heat from the additional oil-cooler. When equipped with the optional bi-xenon headlamps or the Intelligent Light System, the C 63 AMG features dark-tinted headlamp lenses. From the side, the high-sheen 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a titanium grey finish, the shapely integral "6.3 AMG” lettering on the wings and the AMG side skirts catch your eye. From the back the AMG rear apron with black diffuser inserts and three distinctive diffuser fins plus the AMG sports exhaust system with two chrome twin tailpipes and standard tail lights with LED technology set the accents typical of Mercedes. The AMG spoiler lip on the boot lid reduces lift and provides better driving stability.

Exclusive optional features are available for the C 63 AMG from the AMG PERFORMANCE STUDIO. These include the AMG Performance Package, high-sheen 19-inch multi-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels painted in titanium grey and AMG carbon-fibre trim elements.
