Powerful V8 engines, thrilling driving dynamics and distinct design have made the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 S model range a bestseller. The Sedan, Coupé and Cabriolet now feature a sharper exterior, with the radiator trim that underscores the brand identity while emphasising the muscular appearance.
The fast-shifting AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission, the electronically controlled rear-axle differential, and the nine-stage AMG TRACTION CONTROL take longitudinal and lateral dynamics to a new level.
AMG DYNAMICS enhances driving pleasure, too: this built-in dynamic handling control extends the functions of the ESP, allowing precisely measured torque distribution on the rear axle (Torque Vectoring), which increases agility while maintaining a high level of stability.
The C 63 S is the bedrock of Mercedes-AMG. Drivers and fans love it because it is one of a kind in its segment. Its signature feature is the immensely powerful eight-cylinder engine — the V8 is an unshakeable part of the AMG brand identity.
The rear-wheel drive, the AMG-specific suspension and the athletic overall appearance likewise set the C 63 S apart from its competitors. It also offers a wealth of individualisation options, including three body versions and an extensive range of optional extras.
“The AMG C-Class is our best-selling model series and therefore a key cornerstone of our company’s success. But when it comes to the pinnacle of C-Class performance, there is one model in particular that stands out – the C 63s,” says Selvin Govender, Marketing Director of Mercedes-Benz Cars.
“The Mercedes-AMG C 63 S is more striking and expressive than everl; not just due to its new front design featuring AMG-specific radiator grille, but also on account of the re-designed rear which contributes to the athletic design of the vehicle. It’s also a rear-wheel drive icon and with its AMG-specific chassis, the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 S is an exceptional performance vehicle.”
The comprehensive model update includes a raft of measures with one thing in mind above all: to further sharpen the longitudinal and lateral dynamics. One of the new features in the C 63 S is the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission with wet start-off clutch.
It allows faster bursts of speed and more spontaneous responses to the driver’s accelerator pedal input. In addition, the rear-axle limited-slip differential fitted as standard is now electronically controlled on all versions, allowing more precise traction control.
AMG TRACTION CONTROL enables the slip on the rear axle to be controlled in nine stages, which keen drivers should appreciate, especially when driving on the race track and under changeable road conditions. The new, integrated dynamic handling control system AMG DYNAMICS enhances driving enjoyment, too.
