The brand new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and C63 AMG S, in its two body styles, sedan and estate, have been officially unveiled ahead of their public debut which will take place next week in Paris.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is currently being offered with an electronic locking differential, an optional performance exhaust system and 18-inch ten spoke alloy wheels, finished in a titanium grey, while the C63 AMG S is getting the dynamic engine mounts sourced from the recently unveiled AMG GT, which can adapt stiffness in fractions of a second, along with larger 19-inch wheels, with a five twin-spoke design and a titanium finish.
The most important part of the popular performance sedan and estate is found under its hood where we can find the 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine resting. It is actually no surprise that the German based automaker has decided to use this unit on the new C63 AMG and C63 AMG S, as it was already hinted once it was introduced on the company’s newest sports car, the AMG GT.
The 4.0 liter V8 twin turbo engine is capable of producing no less than 476 HP (350 kW), between 5,500 rpm and 6,250 rpm, along with a peak torque of 650 Nm (479 lb-ft), available between 1,750 rpm and 4,500 rpm, in the C63 AMG. The C63 AMG S is bringing a total output of 510 HP (375 kW) and a torue figure of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft), in the same rpm ranges.
Power is being sent to the wheels through an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT seven-speed sports transmission, promising to be faster than before in both Sport+ and Manual modes. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes just 4.1 seconds in the C63 AMG Sedan, 4.2 seconds in the C63 AMG Estate, 4 seconds in the C63 AMG S Sedan and 4.1 seconds in the C63 AMG Estate. Top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) in all versions of the model.
Despite officially pulling the wraps off the brand new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, in its four variants, the company hasn’t released any pricing details, but considering the fact that it will be officially presented to the public next week, during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, chances are we will find out more about it then.
