Pure fascination and breathtaking dynamics, the new Mercedes-AMG C63 sets benchmarks. The high-tech drivetrain, the signature AMG handling and the high level of individuality in optional equipment guarantee an utterly unique driving experince. The pinnacle of the C-Class line-up is driven by an all new 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine closely related to the power unit that provides breathtaking propulsion in the new Mercedes-AMG GT. The power spectrum ranges from 469hp in the C63 to 503hp in the C63 S. With an unrivaled fuel economy, the C63 is the most fuel-efficient eight cylinder car in the high-performance segment. The extensive range of standard equipment includes the AMG Adaptive sports suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers, the mechanical rear locking differential and the AMG Dynamic Select with its multiple drive programs.
The design of the powerful V8 top model is influenced by motorsport and reflects its fascinating technology. Sensual clarity combines with stylish sporting character, the Mercedes C63 inspires fascination from the very first glance. From a visual standpoint, the new model is clearly a member of the Mercedes-AMG family. The exteriors of the C63 are differentiated by specific design elements. The emotional, sensual surface design of the new C-Class, with its reduced minimalist forms, now has an added, positive tension that gives it a truly dynamic character. The wider track and powerful eight-cylinder call for a completely standalone front end design. The Mercedes-AMG C63 has aluminum front fenders, widened on each side by 0.55 inch and bearing 'V8 BITurbo' lettering. The entire front end has also been lengthened by 2.12 inch. In addition, the structure of the body in white has been reinforced in specific areas in order to compensate for the extreme longitudinal and transverse forces generated and transmitted by the drivetrain and running gear.
This impressive efficiency improvement is rooted in the new drive package. The M177 4.0 litre biturbo engine is a close relative of the M178, which is the sports-car heart of the new Mercedes-AMG GT. The innovative eight-cylinder is notable for its outstanding power delivery, targeted lightweight design, high efficiency and environmental compatibility. It also fulfills the highest standards in terms of noise and vibration comfort. The newly developed eight-cylinder features biturbocharging, whereby the two chargers are not located on the outside of the cylinder banks, but instead, within the cylinder V, experts refer to this as the 'hot inside V'. The resulting benefits are a compact engine design, optimum responsiveness and low exhaust emissions. Powerful V8 engines have always been one of the competencies of AMG, the Mercedes-Benz performance brand. Mercedes-AMG GmbH is fully responsible for development and production. The 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine is manufactured in the Affalterbach engine stop in accordance with the 'one man, one engine' principle.
Every detail in the interior of the C63 contributes to a stunning overall effect. The careful choice of select, first-class materials, their sumptuous tactile qualities and their precision craftsmanship deliver a sense of quality that is seldom seen even in higher vehicle classes. Like the exterior, the more powerful C63 S is distinguished from the C63 on the inside by a number of design details. The dashboard of the C63 is finished in grained black MB-Tex man-made leather, with the premium look and feel further enhanced by stitching in crystal grey. Whereas the C63 S gets smooth grained Nappa Optik man-made leather with crystal grey stitching. The wing like trim element in aluminum and the AMG-exclusive, IWC-design analogue clock further display the premium approach to the interior. Next to the touch-pad is the AMG Dynamic Select switch as well as a number of AMG-specific controls, such as the button for the 3-stage AMG Adaptive sport suspension, the 3-stage ESP and the optional button for the Performance exhaust system with variable exhaust flap control.
The Mercedes-AMG C63 is priced at $72,825 and the C63 S is priced at $91,080.
Sophistication, elevated to match exhilaration.
