The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe is the hotted-up, AMG-fettled
version of the new C-Class Coupe.
The Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe is powered by a 6.3 litre V8 engine
which - in standard guise - produces 451 horsepower and 443
lb-ft of torque.
With this engine the C63 AMG Coupe can reach 60 mph in 4.4 seconds
and go on to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
However if the optional 'AMG Development Pack' is fitted, the
power output rises to 481 hp, the 0-60 time is reduced by 1/10th
of a second, and the top speed rises to 174 mph.
The AMG Development Pack for the C63 AMG Coupe consists of engine
modifications inspired by the SLS AMG supercar. The forged pistons,
and lightweight crankshaft
save 6.6 pounds in weight. These changes reduce rotational inertia
within the engine and enhance the overall agility and throttle
response. The AMG Development Package is marked out from the
standard C63 AMG Coupe by the titanium grey variable intake
manifold, the AMG high-performance braking system with two-piece
front rotors and red painted brake calipers, the carbon fiber
trunk lid spoiler and the AMG performance sports steering wheel in premium leather with an Alcantara grip
The Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe's transmission is the AMG SPEEDSHIFT
MCT 7-speed unit. This semi-auto transmission offers a variety
of modes, including the Controlled Efficiency "C"
mode which provides early, comfortable upshifts while maintaining
the lowest possible engine speed and "soft" accelerator
characteristics to help improve fuel economy. Of course the
overwhelming majority of AMG drivers will probably make more
use of the "S", "S+" and "M" modes
which deliver increased performance, faster gearchanges, higher
revs and rev-matching. Gear changes in the "S+" and
"M" modes take just 100 milliseconds and the RACE
START function allows the driver to exploit the vehicle's full
The Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe also features upgraded AMG sports
suspension and an AMG high-performance braking system. Compared
with the standard C-Class Coupe's suspension, the C63 AMG coupe
has a separate three-link front suspension, a reinforced multi-link
independent rear suspension and a wider track front and rear.
This setup has increased negative camber, larger anti-roll bars
and specially adjusted spring and damper rates.
Visually, the C63 AMG Coupe features a new AMG front bumper
housing a high-gloss black center section, AMG-specific LED
daytime running lights and side air outlets. The aluminium hood
is also unique to the car and features two power bulges. The
view from the side is dominated by the titanium grey colored
18-inch wheels and AMG side sills. At the back, the AMG rear
apron has a distinctive, black diffuser insert together with
two chromed twin tailpipes of the AMG sports exhaust system.
