AMG unleashes its full fury with the most powerful C-Class of all time

Downloads for this Press Release

Possessed by the new AMG brand claim, ‘Driving performance’, with design that both frightens and inspires at once, AMG has summoned technology and driving dynamics from the world of motorsport like no other AMG model to create the most powerful C-Class of all time.

The C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series 6.3-litre V8 engine’s howl will strike fear into the hearts of all that dare oppose it. With its maelstrom of hefty torque delivering tremendous pulling power and responsiveness, the raging AMG beast catapults to the edge of the abyss, from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds (all data provisional).

The Black Series flaring snout delivers air to the large cooling modules through intakes in the striking front apron, whilst spitting engine heat from two openings in the aluminium bonnet. Broad, low, brawny and bulging rear haunches mean the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series is poised for attack, while front struts emphasise the fierce vehicle’s width.

Adjustable AMG coil-over sports suspension, functional standard equipment and an AMG high-performance compound braking system help keep those that command such ferocity from oblivion.

For those that wish to tempt fate, the AMG Track Package is available as an option to enhance the insane power and driving dynamics even further. It boasts sports tyres and active rear-axle transmission cooling, plus the AMG Aerodynamics package including flics, a functionally tuned front splitter and an adjustable carbon-fibre rear aerofoil.

From the first glance it is clear that the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series is made for ambitious laps on a closed race track. In visual terms the new high-performance vehicle is reminiscent of the SLS AMG GT3 customer sports car and symbolises the transfer of technology from the sphere of motorsport, which has been part of the corporate philosophy of Mercedes-AMG GmbH for 44 years.

With its new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series, AMG is presenting an exciting sports car for enthusiasts that crave horsepower, and this marks the impressive continuation of the Black Series strategy, which began back in 2006. AMG, the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz Cars, is once again demonstrating its expertise when it comes to designing and developing emotionally appealing high-performance cars.

“AMG has its roots in international motorsport. The new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series is the best proof there is for the permanent transfer of technology from the race track to the road. The numerous successes in the DTM, the customer sports range featuring the SLS AMG GT3 and our commitment to Formula 1, where we have been providing the Official F1™ Safety Car and the Official F1™ Medical Car for the past 15 years, continuously spur on our engineers and technicians. The C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series embodies the new AMG brand claim, Driving Performance, like no other AMG model,” said Frank Bernthaler, Director, Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars, Middle East & Levant.

The new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series goes into production in January 2012, and will be available in the region in Q1.
