The new 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe

The sportiest C-Class ever

Affalterbach. Mercedes-AMG is setting a further landmark in brand history: the new 2017 AMG C63 Coupe is the next step on the way to yet more technical and visual distinctiveness. The far-reaching technical modifications are evident at first sight: strikingly flared front and rear wheel arches, an increased track width and larger wheels give the C63 Coupe a muscular look while at the same time providing a basis for highly agile longitudinal and lateral dynamics. The brand's typical "Driving Performance" is taken to new heights also with the C63 Coupe. The AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine, with 469 hp in standard trim or 503 hp in the C63 S, is a completely in-house development from Affalterbach. In addition, the sophisticated AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers, the setup of the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, the rear-axle limitedslip differential and the dynamic engine mounts have all been developed by AMG.

The C-Class is Mercedes-AMG's best-selling model and forms the backbone of the company's success. Since its launch in 2011, the C-Class Coupe has steadily gained in significance, culminating with the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series. "The new AMG C63 Coupe embodies our conception of progress: It offers impressive longitudinal and lateral dynamics at an extremely high level along with improved fuel economy," said Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "In addition, we are making a bold visual statement with the muscular design. Our customers can therefore experience the progress with each of their senses: seeing, hearing, feeling and, above all, driving!" The Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe will celebrate its world premiere on September 15, 2015 at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA). The C63 Coupe will be available in US dealers beginning in Summer of 2016.
