The new C 63 AMG coupé – emotion and high performance at its most attractive

23.03.2011 / Stuttgart - Abu Dhabi - Cairo /

In the shape of the new C 63 AMG coup?©, Mercedes-AMG is presenting an autonomous, high-performance car that appeals to all the senses. Distinctive design is combined with a powerful drive package and dynamic handling.

The new coup?© joins the successful C-Class AMG family, which includes the classic saloon as well as the practical estate model. The C 63 AMG coup?© also enhances the AMG family of coup?©s: in addition to the CLS 63 AMG and the CL 63 AMG, Mercedes-AMG GmbH is now able to offer another dream car featuring a high-performance eight-cylinder engine.

The market launch commences in July 2011. Looking particularly attractive is the "Edition 1" of the C 63 AMG coup?©, available from launch with exclusive equipment.

The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine in the C 63 AMG coup?© delivers a maximum output of 336 kW (457 hp) and peak torque of 600 Newton metres for outstanding performance: the coup?© is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and the top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited). With this kind of specification, the new two-door vehicle is set to take the lead in its segment.

The new coup?© variant benefits from all the technology updates that have been adopted on the C 63 AMG saloon and estate models. Deploying the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission with "Controlled Efficiency" mode as standard and a new power steering pump reduces fuel consumption: the combined NEDC figure for the C 63 AMG coup?© is 12.0 l/100 km.



AMG performance package for a maximum output of 358 kW (487 hp)

This fuel consumption figure also applies to the performance version generating 358 kW (487 hp) courtesy of the AMG performance package. Available as an option, this package improves acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h to 4.4 seconds, with technology transferred from the SLS AMG responsible for the 22 kW (30 hp) increase in output.

The forged pistons, connecting rods and lightweight crankshaft adopted from the gull-wing model's high-tech drive system save three kilograms in weight. This reduces inertia and enhances the agility and responsiveness of the high-revving, eight-cylinder naturally aspirated engine.

Visually, the AMG performance package can be identified by the variable intake manifold in titanium grey under the bonnet, the AMG high-performance braking system with composite front discs and red painted brake callipers all round, the carbon fibre spoiler lip on the boot lid and the AMG performance steering wheel in nappa leather with an Alcantara?® grip area.
