2015 Mercedes-AMG C 63: Image gallery

28 Jan 2015 / 0

Mercedes has officially revealed the AMG version of its brand new C-Class and as expected, it comes with a proper sledgehammer whack of power from its all-new twin turbo V8 engine. Also from the AMG GT is the all-new 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 in two states of tune. Interestingly, however, the base C 63 produces more power than the base AMG GT (456PS vs 469PS).

The AMG GT uses a twin clutch box while the C 63 gets AMG’s Speedshift MCT 7 auto ‘box. Mercedes claims a 0-100kmph sprint of 3.9 seconds for the S variant and 4.0 seconds for the standard C 63. Both are restricted to a top speed of 250kmph. The new engine produces more power than the legendary naturally aspirated 6.3-litre V8 it replaces but Mercedes claims that it is up to 32 per cent more efficient.

Aiding the sharp handling and drift-happy nature AMGs cars tend to display, is a mechanical locking differential in the rear and three step adjustable suspension

The top end C 63 S gets the same 503PS as the AMG GT S. But there’s a difference in the gearboxes as well
