All-new Mercedes-AMG C 63 / C 63 S Saloon and Estate revealed with up to 503bhp [video]

This is it! The new Mercedes-AMG C 63. Yes you read it right, it is no longer called Mercedes C 63 AMG as the new model is a pure Mercedes-AMG product.

The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 is powered by a familiar all-new hand built 4.0-litre biturbo V8 found also on the AMG GT in two guises – the standard model packs 469bhp and 479 lb-ft of torque, while the C63 S packs 503bhp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

The new engine is linked to linked to a revised AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed transmission, taking the standard C 63 Saloon from 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds and the Estate in 4.2 seconds. The more powerful S model does it in 4.0 and 4.1 seconds respectively. Top speed is limited on all models electronically to 155mph.

Compared to the standard C-Class, the C 63 also uses a unique suspension setup, featuring a four-link suspension, independent steering knuckles and a wider track at the front to improve stability, while at the rear the multilink system uses independent mounts and an increase in negative camber.

There is also AMG RIDE CONTROL system, operating through electronically-controlled three-stage dampers – ranging from comfort through to track settings. The mechanical locking rear differential is fitted to the C 63, and an electronic version for the C 63 S.

The standard model rides on 18-inch alloys fitted 245/40 R18 (front) and 265/40 R18 (rear) tyres while the ‘S’ model rides on bigger 245/35 R19 (front) and 265/35 R19 (rear) tyres.

Braking is guaranteed with standard 390mm discs at the front and 360mm at the rear. Ceramic discs available for track-orientated driving are optional.

The C 63 weighs from 1,715kg while the Estate weighs from 1,785kg with fuel and a driver.

Typical to AMG, the exterior is also more aggressive and sportier showing new bumpers, new grille, new bonnet, wider front wings, quad exhaust pipes and a small wing mounted on the bootlid and above the tailgate glass on the Estate.

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Saloon and Estate will be available to order in the UK from next month, with prices to be announced when ordering opens. First cars are scheduled to arrive in Spring 2015.
