Mercedes-AMG Reveals New C 63 Coupé

Mercedes-AMG has officially taken the covers off its all new C63 Coupé and the far reaching technical modifications are evident at first sight.

Some of these modifications can be instantly identified by the strikingly flared front and rear wheel arches, an increased track width and larger wheels, giving the Coupé a muscular look while at the same time providing a basis for the highly agile longitudinal and lateral dynamics.

The brand’s typical “Driving Performance” is taken to new heights with the C 63 Coupé. The AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with 350 kW (476 hp) in the C63 or 375 kW (510 hp) in the C63 S is just as much a completely in-house development from Affalterbach.

The C-Class is Mercedes-AMG’s best-selling model series and forms the backbone of the company’s success. Since its launch in 2011, the Coupé version has steadily gained in significance, culminating with the C 63 AMG Coupé “Black Series”.

“The new C 63 Coupé embodies our conception of progress: It offers impressive longitudinal and lateral dynamics at an extremely high level along with improved fuel economy,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

“In addition, we are making a bold visual statement with the muscular design. Our customers can therefore experience the progress with each of their senses: seeing, hearing, feeling and, above all, driving!”

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé will celebrate its world premiere on 15 September 2015 at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA). The market launch will begin with two models, the C63 Coupé and C63 S Coupé in March 2016.
