Car enthusiasts have every reason to be cheerful, as there is a new mechanical beauty to fawn over – Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series.
With a maximum output of 380 kW and a maximum torque of 620 Newton metres, the new high-performance vehicle is the most powerful C-Class of all time. Hefty torque, tremendous pulling power and an agile response are guaranteed thanks to the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine, which accelerates to a speed of 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, and takes it on to a top speed of 300 km/h (electronically limited).
The arrow-shaped front section with the central Mercedes star in the radiator grille is the visual synonym for its forwards thrust. The air intakes in the striking front apron ensure reliable air flow through the large cooling modules. The black front splitter located at the lower end helps to balance the vehicle aerodynamically.
Painted titanium grey, the high-sheen light-alloy wheels are produced using particularly light forging technology. These forged wheels weigh a total of eleven kilograms less than comparable wheels with a conventional design.
The C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series will set you back a whopping R1 425 000, but bear in mind, quality rarely comes cheap and this car exemplifies quality of the highest order.
