Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series gets a Solarbeam paint job

Article by Christian A., on November 20, 2011

The new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series symbolizes the AMG brand claim of "Driving Performance" like no other AMG model. This high-performance automobile has an output of up to 380 kW (517 hp) and torque of up to 620 Newton meters, making it the most powerful C-Class of all time.

The vehicle comes with the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine, which brings the automobile to a speed of 100 km/h from a standstill in just 4.2 seconds and to reach a top speed of 300 km/h (electronically limited). The model also comes with the AMG high-performance composite braking system, the adjustable AMG coil-over sports suspension, and the functional equipment available as standard.

AMG Track package comes as an option to further boost driving dynamics. This package features active rear-axle transmission cooling and sports tires. The AMG Aerodynamics package is also available and includes flics, an adjustable carbon-fiber rear aerofoil and a functionally tuned front splitter.

Besides being built to suit the race track with its powerful driving dynamics, the latest C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series has all the features characteristic to a true Mercedes-Benz -- durability, quality, safety and suitability for everyday use.

The launch for this new model is set for January 2012. Prices at a glance (incl. 19% VAT): C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series: 115,430 euros; AMG Aerodynamics package: 7973 euros; AMG Track package: 5890.50 euros; AMG Exterior Carbon-Fibre package 5831 euros; AMG Performance Media 2320.50 euros.

The very popular motorsport concept is all in the new Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Coupé Black Series. Just as anyone would expect, the forward thrusting luxury sports car has the front end in an arrow shape with the Benz logo at the centre of the grill.

Meanwhile the struts in slanted position further enhance the width of the new AMG Coupé. The lower edge houses the black splitter for better aerodynamics. From the side, the same dramatic profile lingers within the newly designed front axle with wider track for the wings (by at least 28mm) on both sides.

The air intakes behind the wheel cut-outs are a constant reminder of the motorsport philosophy. And why not? Under its hood lies the high speed, naturally aspirated 8-cylinder machine. The air intakes at the front apron help generate continuous air flow while the two inlets within the bonnet expel the heat coming from the engine.

During the unveiling, the C63 Coupé comes out with the standard 255/35 R 19 (9x19 front) and 285/30 R 19 (9.9.5 rear) wheel/tyre combinations. The new AMG Black Series is built with lightweight alloy wheels using light forging technology.

These AMG light alloy wheels also fit the wings to a tee. The redesigned AMG side skirts seamlessly blend with the existing front splitter design. Each side now consists of additional 42mm wider wings to match the rear axle’s track width.
