The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is the most powerful C-Class of all time, boasting a maximum output of 510 hp and a maximum torque of 457 lb-ft. The high-revving AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine delivers stunning pulling power and exceptional performance – the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds (all data provisional).
Mighty 255/35 R 19 and 285/30 R 19 wheels grace the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series at market launch. Mounted on 9 x 19 (front) and 9.5 x 19 (rear) AMG alloys, the wheel/tire combination fills out the fenders to stunning effect and has a significant impact on the dynamic appearance of this new AMG sports car.
A displacement of 6.3 liters, a maximum output of 510 hp and torque of 457 lb-ft from eight cylinders – one glance at the technical data and it’s clear that the technology behind the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is every bit a match for its sensational appearance. The high-torque M156 naturally aspirated engine was fine-tuned specifically for the new two-door model. Its forged pistons, connecting rods and lightweight crankshaft all come directly from the SLS AMG and are complemented by a new engine control unit. As a result, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph takes just 4.2 seconds (all data preliminary).
The inspiring high-tech components and the spectacular exterior design both find their logical continuation in the interior of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series. Finished in black with red accents, the interior of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series displays the functional atmosphere of a true race car combined with outstanding quality and meticulously crafted details. Two AMG sport seats provide the best levels of lateral support and thus optimum vehicle control on the race track. The black DINAMICA microfiber upholstery on the center panels of the seats and doors is a new type of synthetic fiber characterized by its high fade resistance. The omission of the rear bench underlines the vehicle’s sporty character and reduces its weight. The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is also available as a four-seater incorporating the AMG sports seats familiar from the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe, with individual seats for the rear.
The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is clear proof that outstanding dynamics and excellent active and passive safety need not be mutually exclusive. Airbags, belt tensioners and belt-force limiters for all seats are part of the standard equipment, as are the ABS anti-lock braking system, the 3-stage ESP®, the tire pressure monitoring system and electronic cruise control.
