Mercedes-AMG releases details on C 63 AMG Coupe

The C-Class is Mercedes-AMG’s best-selling model series and forms the backbone of the company’s success. Since its launch in 2011, the Coupé version has steadily gained in significance, culminating with the C 63 AMG Coupé “Black Series”. The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé will celebrate its world premiere on 15 September 2015 at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA). The market launch will begin in March 2016.

Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupé (C 205) 2015; 4,0-Liter-V8-Biturbomotor: Das Leistungsspektrum reicht von 350 kW (476 PS) im C 63 bis zu 375 kW (510 PS) im C 63 S The 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine develops an output of 350 kW (476 hp) in the C 63 and 375 kW (510 hp) in the C 63 S
New V8 biturbo closely related to the engine in the Mercedes-AMG GT
The 4.0-litre 8-cylinder biturbo engine is already used in the C 63 Saloon and the C 63 Estate. It is also installed in the GT sports car with dry sump lubrication. Characteristic feature: the two turbochargers are positioned not on the outside of the cylinder banks, but between them in the “V” – experts call this a “hot inside V”. The main advantages of this design are the compact engine construction, optimal response and low exhaust gas emissions.
The C 63 S Coupé accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, the C 63 Coupé in 4.0 seconds. This makes the Coupé just a fraction faster than the Saloon – thanks to the wider tyres and shorter-legged rear-axle ratios. The top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited; 290 km/h with AMG Driver’s Package).

Faster gearshifts: the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission
The transmission plays a major part in the direct and sporty character of the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission impresses with its tailor-made dynamics and high variability. Whether automatic or initiated by the driver using the steering wheel shift paddles, upshifts and downshifts are executed noticeably faster than in the previous model. This increased spontaneity is made possible by an even sportier set-up of the engine and transmission parameters.

Specially developed suspension for maximum lateral and longitudinal dynamics
The fascinating agility and high cornering speed of the C 63 Coupé are also thanks to the completely redesigned suspension. A four-link front suspension with radial, racing-style brake connections is used. Model-specific steering knuckles and a wider track allow greater lateral acceleration. The rear axle, too, was completely newly developed for the Coupé. The multi-link concept impresses with highly precise wheel control and increased stiffness. The AMG-specific rear axle carrier makes the increased track width possible; the contact surfaces of the wheel bearings were moved a further 25 millimetres towards the outside in comparison with the Saloon. Other measures include AMG-specific wheel carriers, stiffer elastokinematic tuning and higher negative camber.
