All has been revealed on the Mercedes-AMG C 63 ahead of it going on sale this month.
Available as a saloon, estate, coupe or cabriolet, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 now comes with a sharper exterior, modernised interior and even more agility. Powered by a mighty four-litre V8 with 469bhp, the C 63 can race from zero to 62mph in four seconds flat, while the 503bhp S does it a tenth of a second quicker.
Saloon and coupe S variants are capable of reaching a top speed of 180mph, dipping to 173mph for the estate and drop-top, while the standard C 63 tops out at 155mph – but it can have its top speed raised as an option.
Stylistically, the new C 63 has a more emotive look, thanks to the AMG-specific grille, while the interior benefits from an optional fully digital cockpit with unmistakable AMG displays and the new generation of AMG steering wheels.
There’s also a new front bumper with revised air inlets, and a fresh rear bumper and diffuser. There are also optional 19-inch forged-alloy wheels (the same as fitted to the AMG GT R supercar) that have been optimised for airflow.
Tobias Moers, chief executive of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, said the AMG C-Class is the brand’s best-selling model series and a key cornerstone of the company’s success in recent years.
“We have therefore increasingly expanded our C-Class offer: customers can now choose between twelve models from the C-Class family. As part of the latest facelift, we have upgraded all variants of the model series even more substantially,” he commented. “This relates to the 43-series models and especially, of course, to the AMG C 63. The perfected driving dynamics and expressive design underscore the powerful, muscular character of the rear-wheel-drive icon.”
