The C-Class Mercedes-Benz is a popular vehicle in the marketplace and the AMG version is the performance division’s bestselling model. The class-leading Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe and S Coupe feature a bi-turbo V8 engine capable of dominating the competition with the power numbers 8-cylinder engines are renowned for.

The spec sheet speaks for itself. The C 63 Coupe highlights with 469 horsepower at 5,500-6,250 rpm and 479 lb-ft of torque at 1,750-4,500 rpm. The C 63 S Coupe goes even further with 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque at the same rpm levels.

The result is 0-100 km/h times of 3.9 and 3.8 seconds, with the top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h and 290 km/h respectively. Matched to a 7-speed sport transmission with 4 dynamic settings and specially tuned AMG exhaust, it is a performance you won’t soon forget.

Exterior design details are significantly different than the standard C-Class Coupe. Stuffing a V8 into the engine bay required an increase in track width both front and back, plus new fenders and a unique rear assembly. Flared wheel arches and a rear diffuser insert provide a menacing stance even at rest.

Inside, high-grade materials are featured throughout. AMG-specific controls showcase the motorsport pedigree, with performance seats available as an upgrade to the already comfy ARTICO/microfiber DINAMICA seats.

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe and S Coupe are priced to start at $77,100.00 and $85,800.00 respectively.
