2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG: first interior photos leaked

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2014

We already revealed you folks the fact that the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG sedan will make its world debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Today, the first images showing the interior of the new high-performance sedan emerged on the Web.

As you can see, the all-new 2016 C63 AMG comes with a flat-bottomed sport steering wheel featuring perforated side grips and silver-painted shift paddles, a carbon fiber background for the AMG dials as well as a speedometer limited to 320 km/h or 200 mph and an rpm speedometer limited at 8,000 rpm.

In addition, the interior offers sport bucket seats wrapped in leather, a Burmester premium audio system but also the new touchpad that helps you access the head-unit functions of the vehicle using finger gestures.

Although the photos don’t show it, the interior will arrive with aluminum pedals and with a stylish gear knob. We also know that the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will be powered by the all-new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which will debut on the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT.

On the new coupe, the engine will deliver up to 510 hp (375 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. The C63 AMG sedan is expected to receive a detuned version that will pump out around 450 hp. This doesn’t mean that the vehicle will be slower than its predecessor, because it will be lighter.

The new engine has a weight of 209 kg (460 lbs) and features optimized cylinder heads with zirconium for maximum temperature and thermal conductivity. The previous model was powered by a 6.3-liter V8 that developed 457 hp and 600 (442 lb-ft) of torque.

As a result, it was able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, while offering a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. With the Performance Package, the total output delivered by the engine increased by 30 hp at 487 hp and reduced the acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) at 4.3 seconds.

Just like other recent AMG models, the C63 AMG will also receive an S version that will be more powerful and offer the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. WorldCarFans says that the new C63 AMG sedan and station wagon models will be unveiled on September 24, but there is nothing official yet.
