Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series (Slides) 2012
The new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series
The most powerful C-Class of all time
Affalterbach -- Spectacular design, technology transfer from the world of
motorsport and driving dynamics at the highest level; the new Mercedes-Benz
C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series embodies the new AMG brand claim, Driving
Performance, like no other AMG model. The new high-performance vehicle is
the most powerful C-Class of all time, boasting a maximum output of 380 kW
(517 hp) and a maximum torque of 620 newton metres. The AMG 6.3-litre V8
engine impresses with its hefty torque, tremendous pulling power and
responsiveness, and ensures high-calibre performance: the
C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.2
seconds (all data provisional). Exclusive fun at the wheel comes courtesy
of the adjustable AMG coil-over sports suspension, the AMG high-performance
compound braking system and the functional standard equipment. The AMG
Track Package is available as an option to enhance driving dynamics even
further. It boasts sports tyres and active rear-axle transmission cooling,
plus the AMG Aerodynamics package including flics, a functionally tuned
front splitter and an adjustable carbon-fibre rear aerofoil.
Broad, low, brawny and ready to pounce from a standstill -- the C 63 AMG
Coupé Black Series makes a mighty impression. It's clear right from the
first time you set eyes on it that the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series is made
for ambitious laps on a closed-off race track. In visual terms the new
high-performance vehicle is reminiscent of the SLS AMG GT3
car and symbolises the transfer of technology from the sphere of
motorsport, which has been part of the corporate philosophy of Mercedes-AMG
GmbH for 44 years now.
With its new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series, AMG is presenting an exciting
sports car for enthusiasts who are passionate about sports cars which are
big on horsepower,
and this marks the impressive continuation of the Black Series strategy,
which began back in 2006. AMG, the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz Cars,
is once again demonstrating its expertise when it comes to designing and
developing emotionally appealing high-performance cars.
"AMG has its roots in international motorsport. The new C 63 AMG Coupé
Black Series is the best proof there is for the permanent transfer of
technology from the race track to the road. The numerous successes in the
DTM, the customer sports range featuring the SLS AMG GT3 and our commitment
to Formula 1, where we have been providing the Official F1 Safety Car
and the Official F1 Medical Car for the past 15 years, continuously spur
on our engineers and technicians.
2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
