We now have a clearer idea of how a sedan version of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will appear after it was spied testing at the Nurburgring and as a rendering has been released by Piston Heads user Tuvra of the convertible Black Series. The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe was recently introduced at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The rendering shows a new high-performance vehicle that has features that are similar to those of the SLS AMG GT3 customer sports car. It still has the titanium gray 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels while its body was given an anthracite tone to get that ominous look.
It’s believed that if Mercedes proceeds to build this radical convertible, it will be equipped with a 6.3-litre V8 AMG engine that has an output of 517 hp and 620 Nm (457 lb.ft.) of torque. It’s expected to be mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.
The new Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Coupé Black Series has the highest level of standards in the motorsport arena. The latest AMG is destined to deliver “Driving Performance” beyond compare.
Mercedes Benz’s new performance coupé is considered to be the best C-Class in the entire segment. It can deliver a 380kW powerful output with 620Nm maximum torque. The C63 can also accelerate from 0-100km/h in as short as 4.2 seconds. The latest series has 6.3L V8 engine to bring out the AMG’s top-calibre performance, active response feature and incredible pulling power.
Meanwhile, the all-new AMG package comes with its standard equipment such as the high performance compound braking system and the exclusive coil-over sports suspension. AMG also offers the new Track Package for better driving dynamics. The aerodynamic package includes the adjustable carbon-fibre rear aerofoil, fine-tuned front splitters, flics, active rear-axle transmission-cooling unit and sports tyre.
Wherever it goes, the new Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Coupé Black Series is sure to leave everyone impressed. It’s quite obvious just by comparing its similarities with the famous SLS AMG GT3. In fact, it has been forty-four years already since the Mercedes-AMG GmbH first followed this motorsport philosophy.
Today, we are more than happy to see the Black Series strategy continue in the new C63 AMG Coupé. Racing fanatics will find it hard to resist the new model’s very outstanding horsepower. And why not? It was inspired by its Black Series philosophy, which started way back in 2006.
As Ola Källenius said it, the AMG has its historical background in international car racing. The Mercedes-AMG GmbH CEO further explained how the new Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Coupé Black Series is the best evidence of this. Also, they are adhering to the company’s philosophy in terms of developing new race car and road car technology. As a matter of fact, the DTM’s success has been fueled by the SLS AMG GT3 and its long-standing commitment to Formula1. Källenius also stressed that over the last fifteen years, the brand has been chosen as the Official F1 Medical Car and the Official F1 Safety Car. Therefore, the technical team as well as the engineers know Driving Performance better than everyone else.
