Mercedes C63 AMG coupe revealed
Mercedes-Benz has revealed the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe ahead of its public debut at the New York Auto Show next month - finally a true competitor to the BMW M3.
Just like the C63 AMG sedan and wagon variants, power output stays the same via a 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 engine with 451 hp (336 kW / 457 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. Connected through a seven-speed SpeedShift MCT transmission, the coupe dashes from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, also the same as the C63 sedan. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) while fuel consumption using the combined NEDC figures remains a thirsty 12.0 L/100km. The optional AMG Performance Package increases output to 480 hp (358 kW / 487 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. The additional 30 horsepower enables the coupe to sprint from 0-100 km/h one-tenth of a second faster to 4.4 seconds.
When the C63 AMG Coupe launchs in Europe this July, an exclusive "Edition 1" will also be available with exclusive equipment. The Edition 1 features AMG sports seats, door panel centers and armrests upholstered in black designo leather with contrasting porcelain seams on the sports seats. Also, other trim pieces have a porcelain piano-lacquer look. The AMG performance steering wheel has been given a two-tone wrap using black nappa leather with the lower section in porcelain designo leather. Naturally, "Edition 1" badges are seen throughout. On the outside, AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in matt black give a unique look. As an option, the standard metallic paintwork can be swapped for a matt finish in designo magno night black or diamond white metallic BRIGHT.
Prices including 19 percent VAT in Germany for the C63 AMG coupe is €72,590 while the C63 AMG Coupe Edition 1 is €77,231. The optional AMG Performance package is €7116.20.
The new coupe makes its U.S. showroom debut in September 2011. Pricing will most likely be announced at its public debut in New York.

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG official promo
Mercedes-Benz has announced full details on the 2012 CLS 63 AMG model.
New for the CLS 63 is now AMG's 5.5 liter biturbo V8 engine, which replaces the outgoing naturally aspirated 6.3 liter V8.
The new 5.5 liter biturbo unit features a peak output of 410 kW (557 PS/550 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque with the AMG Performance package. The standard engine configuration is rated at 386 kW (525 PS / 521 bhp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
Both units are mated to the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sport transmission.
Fuel economy on the standard CLS 63 AMG now comes in at under 10 liter/100 km (a noteworthy achievement) - with a 9.9 liters per 100 km rating on the European cycle (NEDC).
That represents a remarkable 32 percent improvement in fuel-economy over the predecessor's 6.3 liter unit with an output of 378 kW (514 PS/510 bhp) and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque. That new fuel-economy rating comes by means of a stop/start system, engine technology such as piezo injectors and an aluminum crankshaft, as well as the use of aluminum panels in the body.
The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is 4.4 seconds for the standard model and 4.3 seconds for the CLS 63 with the AMG Performance package. The standard variant has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
The CLS 63 AMG comes with 3 drive modes: 'S' (Sport), 'S+' (Sport plus) and 'M' (Manual) and features AMG Ride Control suspension for a smoother, more exact ride quality with 3 modes of its own: Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus.
The 2012 CLS 63 AMG comes standard with high-performance LED headlights, AMG light-alloy wheels in a new triple-spoke design with 255/35R19 and 285/30R19 tires front and rear, respectively.
The AMG Performance package also offers a ceramic high-performance composite braking system, carbon fibre/black piano lacquer trims elements, door sills with illuminated AMG logo, carbon-fiber spoiler lip for the boot and red brake calipers, a seperate set of 19-inch light alloys in a double 5-spoke design and, aside from the aforementioned performance Boost, the package includes a top speed limit bumped up to 300 km/h (186 mph).
Prices in Germany for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG start at €115,846.50 including 19 percent VAT. The AMG Performance package rings in at €7735 (VAT included).

2012 Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Black Series Fire Opal
The new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series: The most powerful C-Class of all time
■AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine with a maximum output of 380 kW (517 hp)
■Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds
■Adjustable AMG coil-over sports suspension as standard
■Optional AMG Track package with sports tyres
■Optional AMG Aerodynamics package
■AMG Performance Media as an extra highlight
Spectacular design, technology transfer from the world of motorsport and driving dynamics at the highest level. The new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series embodies the AMG brand claim of "Driving Performance" like no other AMG model. With a maximum output of 380 kW (517 hp) and a maximum torque of 620 Newton metres, the new high-performance vehicle is the most powerful C-Class of all time. Hefty torque, tremendous pulling power and an agile response are guaranteed thanks to the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine, which accelerates the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series to a speed of 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, and takes it on to a top speed of 300 km/h (electronically limited).
Exclusive fun at the wheel comes courtesy of the adjustable AMG coil-over sports suspension, the AMG high-performance composite braking system, and the functional equipment available as standard. The AMG Track package is available as an option to enhance driving dynamics even further, and boasts sports tyres and active rear-axle transmission cooling. Plus there is also the AMG Aerodynamics package including flics, a functionally tuned front splitter and an adjustable carbon-fibre rear aerofoil.
Appearance reminiscent of the SLS AMG GT3 customer sports car
Broad, low, powerful and ready to pounce from a standstill -- the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series makes an impression. It is clearly made for ambitious laps on a closed-off race track. In visual terms the new high-performance vehicle is reminiscent of the successful SLS AMG GT3 customer sports car and symbolises the transfer of technology from the sphere of motorsport, which has been part of the corporate philosophy of Mercedes-AMG GmbH for 44 years now.
With the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series, AMG is presenting an exciting sports car for enthusiasts who are passionate about sports cars which are big on horsepower, and this marks the impressive continuation of the Black Series strategy, which began back in 2006.

Arrow-shaped front section with large cooling air openings
The new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series displays its ties with motorsport from every perspective. The arrow-shaped front section with the central Mercedes star in the radiator grille is the visual synonym for its forwards thrust. The air intakes in the striking front apron ensure reliable air flow through the large cooling modules. Two openings in the aluminium bonnet support the expelling of engine heat, whilst the struts positioned at an angle in the front apron emphasise the vehicle's width. The black front splitter located at the lower end helps to balance the vehicle aerodynamically.
The expressive design continues in the side view: the newly developed front axle with a greater track width calls for new wings, which have been widened by 28 millimetres on each side. "6.3" logos give a nod to the sheer power of the large-displacement eight-cylinder high-revving naturally aspirated engine beneath the bonnet. Air outlets intimated behind the wheel cut-outs call to mind powerful racing cars. The onlooker discovers black inserts on the restyled AMG side skirts -- a look which continues the idea of the front splitter. The rear wings have also been widened by 42 millimetres on each side, due to the greater track width of the rear axle. Air openings are hinted at in front of the rear wheels, forming a fitting conclusion.
Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Sound!! Revs - accelerations - ride!! - 1080p HD
FB: http://www.facebook.com/Jorrie2YT & http://www.facebook.com/jorrik.aben
Jorrik went for a testride in the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG! We had this C63 for 1,5 hour to test it and compare it to the BMW M3 E92, wich I allready have driven earlier. First you see some shots from the exteriour, than it start ups and making some very nice revs! After that you will hear and see some accelerations and finally some shots inside when accelerating on the highway in the Netherlands :)
The question is: Wich one should you choose? The C63 AMG or the M3?
Before I drove the C63 I should definitely have chosen the C63 AMG, but after I have driven it I should choose the M3. The M3 is much smoother.... I don't know how I need to explain it in proper in English, but my choice is the M3!
I hope you like the video and please leave a comment! :-)
