The recently introduced Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe is now available for the Xbox One-exclusive Forza Motorsport 6 video game.
Fans of Daimler’s latest high-performance coupe can rejoice as Forza 6 developer Turn 10 Studios has just added the C63 S Coupe to join 14 other Mercedes-Benz models. These include the AMG GT, SLS AMG, A45 AMG, and the iconic 300 SL Gullwing. The new C63 S Coupe is making its debut in a video game, even before the model’s official market launch.
This S version represents the cream of the crop as it uses an uprated variant of the twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter with 510 PS (375 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. It’s enough muscle to ensure a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in just 3.9 seconds and an electronically-governed top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
To celebrate the model’s launch in Forza 6, Mercedes-Benz has launched a new spot filmed on a deserted airfield. The footage alternates with scenes from the video game itself to make the “sports car and its digital twin seem inseparable.”
The 2016 C63 S Coupe is part of a new Mobil 1 Car Pack launched this month that also includes the 2015 Koenigsegg One:1, 1990 Chevrolet #30 Douglas Shierson Racing Lola T90/00, 1963 Ferrari 250LM, 1988 Holden VL Commodore Group A SV, 1991 Mazda #62 Mazda Motorsport RX-7, and the 1958 Plymouth Fury.
