The 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Cabriolet made its official worldwide debut at the 2016 New York International Auto Show. Sales will begin at dealerships across the U.S. during the fall of 2016.

Developed by AMG at its Affalterbach facility, the Biturbo engine offers two possible output ratings which are 469 hp or 503 hp. While the exterior already has a powerful appearance, this is highlighted further with the wide track and large wheels and the flared wheel arches on both the front and the rear.

It is equipped with the AMG RIDE CONTROL sport suspension, which shares similarities with the AMG C63 S, as it also comes with dynamic engine mounts, a rear-axle limited slip differential, and adaptive damping adjustments. For AMG lovers who also want performance, they will be able to choose from the many variants of the Mercedes-AMG C-Class.

Updated 2019 Mercedes-AMG C63 lineup gets digital cockpit, modified drive programs

Mercedes-Benz has chosen New York City as the location to reveal to us the refreshed C63 AMG family. These comprise the coupe, sedan, and cabriolet. In fact, we have seen the pre production models being tested but finally, the automaker has decided to get rid of the camouflage.

Now, we finally see them in the flesh, and we would say that one of the most obvious changes would be the new Panamericana grille that is actually pretty standard across the AMG line. That’s not the only thing it has been given though, as the 2019 C63’s front fascia has slightly been reworked as well. Meanwhile, the rear part gets twin tailpipes with high gloss chrome and a tweaked rear diffuser.

Under the hood of this C63 is a biturbo 4.0 liter V8 that enables it to produce 469 horsepower (350 kilowatts), while the C63 S has 503 horsepower (375 kilowatts). The engine is paired with a nine speed wet clutch automatic gearbox, which has been replaced by the seven speed unit in the outgoing model.

2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 gets soft updates on power and styling

When Mercedes-Benz gave the regular C-Class models a soft update for the 2019 model year, it was already expected that it would do the same to the high-performance C-Class units. Now, the Mercedes-AMG C43 is getting a soft update – both in terms of looks and power – when it arrives as a 2019 model year.

Offered in Saloon and Estate variants, the new Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC is considered as the entry-level high-performance C-Class model. Thus, it is only logical that it receives certain updates. For starters, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate are provided with new distinguishing visual elements like the AMG radiator grille with twin louver in matt iridium silver, as well as the dynamically sculpted front apron with extra flics. The front apron features side air curtains that help channels front airstream. The trim details on the front splitter as well as the cross fin attachment now don a silver chrome finish.

On the rear end, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate now feature a pair of round (instead of angular) twin tailpipe trim elements as finished high-gloss chrome. The rear end is also defined by a rear apron with side air curtain appearance, a more expressive diffuser as well as body-colored spoiler lip on the boot lid.

The outgoing Mercedes-Benz C Class began production in the year 2015. And even though it may not be that old, the automaker decided to already give it a mid-cycle refresh and finally, it has arrived with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan. The automaker recently just took the camouflage off the vehicle, before setting out to make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.

When looking at the new C-Class sedan from the outside, changes seem to be very subtle but noticeable. For instance, the single bar diamond grille from the AMG Line now comes standard, surrounded by new LED headlights that are now standard as well.

The front fascia looks tweaked with horizontal fins in the side air intakes. The rear fascia has also been redesigned, now with an additional diffuser. The headlights and the taillights also got a minor design change and an LED upgrade, and the sedan now sits on a set of 17 inch twin five spoke wheels that are standard. Customers will now have more paint options like Mojave Silver Metallic and Emerald Green Metallic.

Today, the most powerful Mercedes-Benz model you could get is probably the twelve-cylinder S65 and Maybach S650 – as both models have an output of 621 horsepower. However, VATH decided that they would produce something beefier than that, as they took both the coupe and cabriolet versions of the C63 and worked on their 4.0 liter biturbo V8 engine so they could give out a lot more power.

After VATH worked its magic on the C63’s AMG engine, it no longer gives out just 503 horsepower in the S specification. Instead, the V8 engine can now produce as much as 690 horsepower. This V63RS package, which includes the 187 horsepower boost, will cost you right around €12,800 (or $15,900), and that does not include value added tax yet. The upgraded engine is paired to a seven speed automatic transmission. Other upgrades include a new turbocharger setup and downpipe, together with an uprated oil cooler for the engine.

It isn’t just the horsepower that gets a boost, but of course, the torque as well. Before it has been modified, the C63’s standard was 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres), and now, it has as much as 664 pound feet (900 Newton metres) of torque.

In our generation, super estates that had been tuned to become more powerful are becoming more common. One of the latest to be modified is the Mercedes-AMG C63 that has been made to go much quicker than the previous-generation supercars.

Thanks to aftermarket tuner Vath as they have turned this wagon into a ferocious beast. And believe it or not, in only 3.3 seconds, it can sprint from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) before hitting its maximum speed of 340 kilometers per hour (211 miles per hour).

After it has been tuned, the Mercedes-AMG C63 is now faster than a stock Ferrari 458 Italia by 0.1 second, which may not seem like much but any improvement is a big deal in this industry. This was attained after Vath tweaked its 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, that now gives out 700PS (690 horsepower) and 900 Nm (664 pound-feet) of torque. But if you want this to be done to your existing wagon, you will have to spend 12,800 euros ($14,870). With this, the tuner can enhance the car’s electronica and turbochargers, while adding a new oil cooler for the engine and transmission.

The Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe isn’t your ordinary two-door car. Aside from its dynamic yet elegant looks, the AMG C63 Coupe is also a menace in terms of performance – worthy of the AMG branding. This is why the AMG C63 Coupe is a favorite among auto tuners. Now, German tuning specialist Prior Design has made the AMG C63 Coupe more potent, thanks to its new aero body kit.

Compared to an ordinary Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the AMG C63 Coupe was designed as a true performer, with an aggressive appearance to match. In fact, the AMG C63 Coupe shares no body panel with a regular C-Class, except for the roof panel. Featuring an already low and wide stance, large air intakes and aggressively flared wheel arches, AMG C63 Coupe is a luxury car that should earn your utmost attention on the road. However, Prior Design believes that what AMG has done isn’t enough, so it has come up with an aero kit that should make the AMG C63 Coupe look meaner.

Dubbed as the PD65CC Widebody Aerodynamic Kit (W205), this package greatly enhances not only the sporty looks of the AMG C63 Coupe, but also improves the luxury performance car’s aerodynamic capabilities. The PD65CC WB aero kit includes a C-Class-specific front bumper as well as front spoiler or splitter. This front bumper features modified and larger air intakes. The aero kit also includes a new bonnet that lends the AMG C63 Coupe a sportier look, even meaner than the C63 Black Series.

Schmidt Revolution is well known for coming up with excellent tunes for specific models and this time around, it displayed its take on the C63 Coupe from Mercedes-AMG.

At present, the C63 Coupe is powered by the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that is capable of 469 hp (476 PS) and peak torque at 479 lb.-ft. (650 Nm). This is where the tuner starts to work its magic. Schmidt managed to up the power to 572 hp (580 PS) and even increased the peak torque to 538 lb.-ft. (730 Nm). With these figures, it is likely to have better acceleration compared to the standard engine, the latter of which allows the C63 to go from standstill to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 4 seconds. Be aware though that this update would cost you about $2,666 (€2,499).

With the update on the engine, it means you will likely need to put in other changes like the KW thread springs, which will cost you an additional $853 (€799). Meanwhile the level 3 KW coilover suspension will need you to put out an extra $2,752 (€2,579). If that’s not enough, the special Capristo exhaust system, which comes with throttle valves, will set you back $5,334 (€4,999). So far, that amounts to above $11,000, or more than €10,000.

Mercedes-AMG is supposedly planning to whip out a track-honed C63 in the next two years. The C-Class as we know, usually follows a 7-year cycle before coming up with a new product. According to Car and Driver, instead of giving it the Black Series badge, the model will take on the same route as the AMG GT R or in this case, it will be labeled as the C63 R.

In the hopes of improving its racetrack credentials, the new C63 R will be made more lightweight compared to the normal C63 S model. That is, despite having already impressive performance figures under its belt. For that, Mercedes-AMG will be working even further in improving the C63 S model’s current hp and torque output from its 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine.

Together with an extensive range of aerodynamic treatments, the C63 R will feature a massive fixed rear wing to make it more capable on the tracks. Aside from the lightweight carbon fiber roof, it will have significantly wider front wings to make way for a totally new bespoke suspension setup.

Brabus will be hitting this week’s most happening auto show with a powerful 641bhp C63 Cabrio. The after-market tuning company has earned its reputation in the industry for having tuned Mercedes-Benz cars for four decades. Its latest project, the new Brabus 650 Cabrio, is based on the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet.

The drop-top 650 Cabrio receives a powerful boost of up to 138 hp –resulting in its highly impressive 650 horsepower and 604 pound feet of torque. Brabus modified its standard 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine so it can accelerate from 0- 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 200 miles per hour. The conversion consists of Brabus PowerXtra B40S and 2 turbochargers with larger compressor just to name a few.

Normally, a standard Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet comes with 502 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The hefty amount of powerful boost wouldn’t be possible if not for the recalibrated electronics and new turbochargers fitted under its hood. To do this, Brabus replaced the factory specified AMG turbocharger with its own turbo charger units. The tuning house has also upgraded the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet’s ECU and got rid of the 155 mph limiter to allow its 650 hp run up to 200 miles per hour at top speed.

Incredible Hulk is not your typical superhero yet he has avid followers around the world. In our opinion, he has inspired the creation of a monstrous package for the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Estate.

In the world of aftermarket automotive tuning, Germany-based Brabus GmbH has been known for its ability to transform vehicles – most of which are Mercedes-Benz nameplates – into something that doesn’t only look powerful but also performs like monsters on the road. Yet, these Brabus-tuned Mercedes vehicles aren’t monstrous villains, but are road heroes that take their drivers and/or passengers from one place to another comfortably and luxuriously. The upgrades are definitely not limited to its looks.

This AMG C63 S Estate is wrapped in a lime green exterior – similar to the radioactive color of the Incredible Hulk. However, unlike the Incredible Hulk who is muscular and rugged, this Brabus AMG C63 S Estate is stylish and elegant.

Carlsson has once again been making the rounds in the automotive world as we can see from its latest iterations for an A-Class and an S Class Convertible. And now, here’s another one from Carlsson -- A Mercedes AMG C63 S has just received a whopping 625 PS and new aero treatment package.

It does look like Carlsson has finally moved on and is now up for something spectacular. Only last year, the German auto tuning company had met its lowest point riding under the wheel of Zhongsheng Group Holdings Ltd. Thankfully, its new owners, Sambo Motors Co. Ltd. came to the rescue and they successfully saved Carlsson from bankruptcy.

Carlsson’s aero kit comes with augmented air intake, diffuser, rear apron, spoiler lip, side skirts, aero flaps and black-chromed tailpipes. It only makes sense to have all these on a Mercedes-AMG C63 S. After all, the auto tuner’s creations have always been centred on cars with superb performance.

The Black Series models by Mercedes-Benz could soon be back. Nothing is final yet, but there is a chance that in the near future, we could be seeing a new Black Series version of the Mercedes-AMG. The last time that the Mercedes-Benz had its Black Series range was during the 2014 model year with the SLS AMG and the 2012 model year with the Mercedes-AMG C63. Some are praying for Mercedes to unleash another Black Series model, and if these prayers would be heard, then we could say hello to a new one in the near future.

This comes as Tobias Moers, the top honcho at Mercedes-AMG, disclosed that he received word that the higher-ups at Mercedes are considering making “Black Series” out of an uncompromising car, and they are bound to provide the green light for this new project. He also revealed that the new Black Series will be derived from the C63. Tobias, however, did not discuss the body for the new Mercedes-AMG C63 Black Series. But considering that the previous C-Class Black Series was a coupe, it would not be a surprise if the next AMG C63 Black Series would be based on this body type.

While waiting for Mercedes to approve the new AMG C63 Black Series, let us take a quick look at the previous version. Unveiled in 2011, the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe Black Series Coupe was regarded as the most powerful C-Class so far. This was primarily thanks to a stunning AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine that could develop 510 hp of max output and 457 lb.-ft. of peak torque. This powerplant allows the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe Black Series Coupe to sprint from nil to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds. Power is sent to the rear wheels through the innovative AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports gearbox that boasts of four transmission modes.

BRABUS has launched the BRABUS 650 at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. This latest offering uses the twin-turbocharged eight-cylinder engine of the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S as a basis but increases the power to 478 kW / 650 HP (641 bhp) while torque is upped to 820 Nm (604 lb-ft).
