Following the successful launch of the new C-Class Coupé in May this year, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has now taken the wraps off the range-topping C-Class Coupé model dubbed the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé.
“As the latest addition to the Mercedes-Benz Dream Car Collection, the C63 S Coupé clearly marks the next performance level of AMG. It offers our customers the experience of first-hand excellence in its muscular design that distinctly holds the AMG DNA with the undisputed power delivery of a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine from Affalterbach,” says Mark Raine, Vice President, Sales & Marketing Passenger Cars, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.
In terms of aesthetics, the new Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé looks a whole lot sportier than the regular Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe thanks to the AMG kit that gives it a more athletic appearance – just what one would expect from an AMG model.
What’s more important is what lies underneath the hood of the Coupé . Its motivation comes from the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine found in the C63 S Sedan. It produces an impressive 510hp and 700Nm of torque, which goes through a lightning-quick AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT-7 seven-speed sports transmission. Thanks to the generous amount of power, the C63 S Coupé accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds, before reaching a limited top speed of 250 km/h, or 290 km/h with the optional AMG Driver’s Package.
Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé “Edition 1”
Just like the the C63 S Sedan, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia continues to offer the “Edition 1” package alongside the standard Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé. It comes with an exclusive design and equipment features inspired by the appearance of the Mercedes-AMG C63 DTM racing coupés.
It comes in 2 exterior designs for you to choose from. The sport stripes are rendered in graphite grey matt and the rim flanges of the matt black forged wheels have a high-sheen cross-spoke design. Sport tyres and the ceramic high-performance compound braking system are available as an option for this variant. In addition, all exterior paint finishes are available for this model.
The other variant comes in designo magno selenite grey matt paint with yellow film coating that borrows the look of the International Motor Show launch version of the 2016 C63 DTM. Yellow sport stripes adorn the engine bonnet, roof, boot lid as well as the side lines above the rocker panels.
With yellow painted rim flanges, the extremely light and matte black Performance 5-twin-spoke forged wheels also set distinctive accents. Size 9.0 J x 19 with 255/35 R 19 tyres are used at the front, 10.5 J x 20 with 285/30 R 20 tyres at the rear. The custom sports tyres offer a tangibly enhanced level of traction on dry roads.
In both variants, the AMG Aerodynamics package in high-gloss black enhances the racing-inspired appearance. The additional large front spoiler, specific side sills, lateral stall strips integrated into the rear bumper, the specific rear diffuser and the specific stall strip on the boot lid not only reduce lift, but also sharpen the visual impression.
Inside the cabin, the AMG Performance seats are upholstered in Nappa leather, including the colour yellow in the contrasting topstitching of the specific diamond pattern. Yellow contrasting topstitching is also found on the door centre panels, the armrests, the steering wheel rim and the beltlines.
Additional yellow accents adorn the instrument cluster, the AMG-specific analogue clock in IWC design and the floor mats. With the DINAMICA microfibre Performance steering wheel with flat bottom, the driver always has the C63 S Coupé safely under control. The matte carbon trim in the centre console rounds out the overall appearance of the Edition 1 model.
