First thing first, you could surely see its presence at the forthcoming NAIAS. That’s right – New York is the very city where the refreshed lineup including the long-awaited sedan, cabrio and coupe body styles will be revealed in flesh. Then, the most important, there are changes – in fact, a series of styling tweaks and rich driver tech. So the Mercedes-AMG C63 and C63 S will certainly be crowded by addicted fans on stage.
We can’t imagine how many tricks Mercedes-Benz has under its sleeve, but the main question remains about the performance boost. Both models come powered by a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 paired to a new wet-clutch nine-speed automatic Speedshift MCT transmission that is good enough to produce 479 lb-ft of torque and 469hp. The S model, more powerful, cranks out a hot 516 lb-ft of torque and 503 ponies. The coupe is considered to be fastest sprinting to 60 miles in 3.8 seconds.
Standard is a sports exhaust system and an adaptive damping system.
Speaking on interior updates, the refreshed lineup looks on point with everything. A host of changes includes the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, the Nappa leather-wrapped AMG-specific steering wheel with touch-control buttons, an updated touchpad controller and performance seats.
Having said that, what is your fav in the C63 lineup that left you speechless?
