  • [NEWS] Mercedes Updates The C63 AMG

    Mercedes recently updated the C-Class and obviously the AMG version is to follow, and boy oh boy we're loving the new version:

    The power plant and output remains the same; it still packs the same 4.0L twin-turbo V8 producing 469 horsepower and a hefty 503 horsepower for the S-badged AMG, and with the latter capable of reaching 180mph. Lovely.

    Both standard and S-version C63 now comes with a limited slip differential as standard for a better drifting experience, but Dynamic Engine Mounts still belong to the S only.

    On the outside the C63 has an updated bumper design as well as a new grille similar to the ones you find on the Mercedes-AMG GT-R, the rear meanwhile still incorporates four exhaust pipes to distinguish it from regular C-Class and a slightly different diffuser.

    The inside is where the change is most notable, the new steering wheel design comes as standard and it fits the C63 perfectly; it's both elegant and yet very muscular. The 12.3inch digital instrument cluster is an optional extra but it does come with it's own AMG-specific display styles.

    More importantly, if you choose to have the AMG Track Pace option, there will be a special sub-menu with visualisation of tracks, sectors, and lap times. Go further down the options list for a head-up display, and it will project circuit graphic upwards, complete with corners, braking points, delta speeds and timing data. Yes, we're still talking about the C63 AMG and not about Gran Turismo.

    Another big change for the new C63 is that now it uses Merc's new 9-speed gearbox rather than their 7-speed, while the 7-speed isn't too bad, their 9-speed 'box comes with a wet-start clutch rather than a torque-converter so it's even faster and smoother.

    It's on sale now and deliveries are expected to begin in October, interested?
