The much anticipated Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe has been officially unveiled in all its glory ahead of its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
Set to go on sale in Europe next March, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe adopts a similar front fascia as the sedan version, but everything from the A pillar back is new.
Visually, the scotching AMG is distinguishable from its normal C-Class coupe siblings by lowered ride height, larger air intakes, bigger brakes and the AMG-typical four-pipe exhaust.
Behind the flared wheel arches and beefed up bumpers is a drivetrain similar to the AMG C63 sedan and wagon. This means a new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, which transmits its power through a seven-speed automatic and a limited slip differential to the rear wheels.
The standard AMG C 63 Coupe gets 350 kW of power and 650 Nm of torque, enough to launch the car from rest to 100km/h in 4.0 seconds flat.
Australia will only get the more powerful AMG C 63 S Coupe which pumps out 375 kW and 700 Nm. The S gets to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds, 0.1 second quicker than the regular version.
