Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Wins the Horsepower War



Quote:
The Mercedes-AMG C63 coupe has officially been unveiled as the sportiest C-Class ever.

After numerous leaks and official teasers from Mercedes-AMG, the German automaker has revealed the details on the C63 coupe ahead of its auto show debut in Frankfurt next month. As expected, the stylish luxury coupe is powered by a 4.0-liter Biturbo V8 with 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque in standard trim or 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque in the C63 S. The powerplant is mated to an AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed sport transmission.

One of the main goals Mercedes-AMG had for the new C63 coupe was to not only differentiate it further from the C63 sedan but also the standard C-Class coupe. As a result, the C63 shares only the same doors, roof and trunk with the standard C-Class, resulting in a redesigned front and rear end, along with wider front and rear fenders that has the AMG model being 2.51 inches wider in the front and 2.59 inches wider in the rear. The wider body also allows the C63 to accommodate wider tires, up to 10 inches (255 mm) in the front and 11.2 (285 mm) inches in the rear.

The hood is also 2.36 inches longer, giving the C63 a sportier profile, especially with its two distinctive powerdomes. The completely redesigned rear end draws inspiration from the S-Class coupe with two chrome-plated twin tailpipes in the rear perfectly integrated into the diffuser.

Performance and aesthetics isn’t all AMG is about. The C63 coupe has a completely redesigned suspension compared to its predecessor with a four-link front suspension with radial, racing-style brake connections. There’s also an AMG-specific rear-axle carrier, moving the contact surfaces of the wheel bearings about an inch further towards the outside compared to the sedan. AMG Ride Control suspension features adjustable damping, allowing the driver to adjust from maximum sportiness to comfort with a touch of a button.

The standard C63 coupe will come equipped with a mechanical rear-axle limited-slip differential while the C63 S coupe will have an electronic unit.

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 coupe will arrive dealerships in the U.S. next summer. Expect pricing information to be announced closer to the vehicle’s launch.
