The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe has been revealed ahead of its world premiere that will happen alongside the standard 2016 Mercedes C-Class Coupe at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA) next month. The AMG variant is differentiated from the standard variant by a number of exterior changes, including sportier front bumper, AMG grille, distinguishing hood, ‘V8 BITURBO’ fender badge, AMG wheels, AMG brake callipers, AMG carbon-fibre exterior mirrors and a three-finned rear diffuser that houses chrome-finished, quad exhaust tips.
The specifications are yet to be released, but technical ones can be expected to be carried over from the sedan equivalent. Two models will be offered – standard C 63 and C 63 S. Both will be powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This engine should produce 476 hp and 650 Nm of torque on the standard model, and 510 hp and 700 Nm of torque on the S model.
The engine will be linked to a AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed automatic sports transmission. 0-100 km/h acceleration time of both C 63 Coupe and C63 S Coupe should be 4.0 seconds and/or lesser, with the S model being the quicker of the two. The top-speed however, should be limited to 250 km/h for both the models.
The all-new Mercedes-AMG C 63/S Coupe is likely to go on sale in first markets in early 2016.
