2015 Mercedes unveils AMG C63 — Powerful high-performance athlete

(September 24, 2014) Mercedes-Benz says the high-tech drivetrain, signature AMG handling and a high level of individuality in optional equipment guarantee an utterly unique driving experience with the all-new AMG C63.

The pinnacle of the new C-Class line-up is driven by an all new 4.0-liter V8 turbocharged engine closely related to the power unit that provides breathtaking propulsion in the new Mercedes-AMG GT. The power spectrum ranges from 469 horsepower in the C63 to 503 horsepower in the C63 S.

The S version is expected to hit 60 in just 3.9 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 155 mph.

With an unrivaled fuel fuel economy, the C63 is the most fuel-efficient eight-cylinder car in the high-performance segment. The extensive range of standard equipment includes the AMG Adaptive sports suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers, the mechanical rear locking differential and the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT with its multiple drive programs. Additionally, there will be a highly exclusive "Edition 1" model available from market launch.

"At 40,000 units, the 2014 C63 AMG was the bestselling AMG model. We will now add to this success with the new Mercedes-AMG C63. Be it in drive, handling or equipment, the Mercedes-AMG C63 sets new benchmarks and will further strengthen our brand promise ‘Driving Performance’. AMG customers can look forward to an exceptionally dynamic driving experience."

The C63 and C63 S AMG models will be unveiled on Oct. 2 at the Paris Motor Show. U.S. motorists will be able to take delivery in March.
