The speed doctors at Merc-HQ reveal their latest and most powerful iteration of the C-Class coupe

Affalterbach, Germany — Mercedes-AMG has revealed its most sporty C-Class ever made, the new C 63 coupe. Based on the C-Class coupe, the new C 63 coupe’s exterior modifications include flared wheel arches, increased track width and larger wheels, making it look like a smaller version of the S 63 coupe.

To add some context to the commotion, the C 63 happens to be Mercedes-AMG’s best-selling model series and forms the backbone of the company’s success. Since its launch in 2011, the coupe version has steadily grown to become one of the best selling members of the AMG family, culminating with C 63 AMG coupe “Black Series”.READ: Our review of the voracious new Mercedes-AMG C 63 S, the C 63 coupe’s four-door sedan sibling. 

“The new C 63 coupe embodies our conception of progress: It offers impressive longitudinal and lateral dynamics at an extremely high level along with improved fuel economy,” said Tobias Moers, chairman of the board of management at Mercedes-AMG GmbH, in a statement. In English, that means it’ll go quicker in a straight line, and around corners, while possibly leaving you some leftover cash for food after visiting the petrol station.

The AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with 476hp is as always is completely developed in house. This is the same engine used in Mercedes-AMG GT sports car but with added dry sump lubrication.

It uses a MCT (Mercedes speak for ‘multi-clutch technology’) seven-speed automatic transmission, produces 650Nm of torque, has an efficiency of 8.9L/km, goes from 0 to 100 in four seconds and has a top speed of 250km/h (electronically limited).

As an alternative to the standard sports seats in Artico microfibre and Dinamica man-made leather, Performance seats are a cost option and let you sit lower and grip you tighter, the better to go round bends at full speed with.

Both the new C 63 coupe and regular C-Class coupe will be unveiled on September 15 at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show. Unfortunately there is no news about the C 63 coupe coming to Singapore any time this year.
