Mercedes-AMG has released full details about the C63 Coupe following a preview earlier today.
Set to go on sale in Germany in March, the high-performance coupe has a familiar design but adopts an aggressive front bumper, a front splitter and an AMG-branded grille. The model also has an aluminum powerdome hood, a trunk-mounted spoiler and a new rear bumper with a diffuser that is flanked by a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system.
Mercedes didn't have much to say about the interior but it features ARTICO / DINAMICA sport seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and AMG badging on the center stack.
Power is provided by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that develops 476 PS (469 bhp / 349 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) - or 290 km/h (180 mph) with the optional AMG's Driver's Package.
Buyers looking for something more powerful can opt for the C63 S Coupe which features an upgraded twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that develops 510 PS (503 bhp / 375 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to rocket from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds before topping out at an electronically-limited 250 km/h (155 mph) - or 290 km/h (180 mph) with the optional AMG's Driver's Package.
Speaking of performance, the C63 Coupe has been equipped with a sport-tuned suspension and an AMG-specific rear end with a unique axle carrier, a wider track, stiffer elastokinematic tuning and a higher negative camber. The model also has a limited-slip rear differential, dynamic engine mounts (on the C63 AMG S) and an AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with adjustable damping.
