Mercedes C63 AMG DTM Safety Car revealed

Mercedes has unveiled the new C63 AMG Safety Car for the 2011 DTM racing season. Based on the facelifted sedan, the vehicle is outfitted with an adjustable coil-over suspension, a high-performance braking system and a roof-mounted LED light bar. Other goodies include race seats, an advanced communications system and a leather/Alcantara steering wheel with paddle shifters. Under the hood, the naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 engine has been equipped with the AMG Performance Package which enables it to develop 480 hp (358 kW / 487 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. This allows the sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and keep up with the racing action.

Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe - Sheer Driving Pleasure
The C63 AMG Coupe may offer the greatest driving pleasure you may ever have. So great that even a drive to get breakfast becomes a driving experience.





2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Review
The very moment the new Mercedes-AMG C63 rumbles to life, any notion this monster has been diminished by downsizing the V8 is immediately smashed. In fact, its rumble is more like the deep, ground shaking burble of a battle tank than any four-door luxury sedan. And that’s while its still sitting idle. On the move, well just listen to this. This is the latest creation from Mercedes hot rod asylum AMG. It’s monstrously fast, way too quick for public roads, so we’ve come to a private road where we can open it up and give you a little taste of what this thing is capable of. Overseas there’s two versions of this new model. The standard C63 offers 350kW, but since Australia is the biggest market for AMG per capita, we only get the full strength 375kW C63 S. Weirdly this has got the same power but more torque than the GT, a pretty sweet deal at half the price. In 1995 the almost identically priced C36 AMG, could do 0-100 in 6.5 seconds. Fast-forward 20 years C63 S is capable of doing the sprint in a supercar-style 4 seconds flat. But it’s not just about the car’s outright pace; this latest iteration is also equipped with the kind of technology that was simply unheard of two decades ago. Standard features include complex performance-enhancing systems such as AMG Ride Control with adjustable shock absorbers, an electronic locking rear diff and the AMG Dynamic Select drive programs that let you customize the car’s character. Unique to this segment are the dynamic engine mounts, which aim to provide the optimum balance between ride and handling by adapting their stiffness to the driving conditions. Soft for comfort and stiffer for high g-forces. For those wondering how it all comes together on the road and on the track? One word: stupendously. ------------------------------------------------------------- http://CarAdvice.com.au is focused on getting people into the right car for them.

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.

Ralph Lauren Classic Car Collection Exhibition in Paris (Part 1)
Ralph Lauren Reveals His Classic Car Collection In Europe For The Very First Time Ralph Lauren is transporting his most exquisite car collection to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris for a special exhibit called "The Art of the Automobile: Masterpieces from the Ralph Lauren Collection". Last night stars rubbed shoulders at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, where they were the first to see Ralph Lauren's Classic car collection in Europe. Jean Reno marvelled at the beauty of the cars, expressing that the cars are historic but modern. Zhang Ziyi spoke about how much she loves visiting Paris and the passion of the city. The former F1 driver, Jackie Stewart, fondly recalls driving and racing with Ralph Lauren in the LM Ferrari in the collection. The exhibition opens from the 28th of April, where a selection of Ralph Lauren's most prestigious sports cars from the 1930s to the present day is on show for the first time in Europe at Paris' Musée des Arts Décoratifs. 17 outstanding cars, chosen by the curator Rodolphe Rapetti, outline the main phases of European automobile history. Stylish not only in clothing but also in automobiles, world renowned designer Ralph Lauren has established himself as one of the world's major car collectors. His impressive collection includes a 1938 Bugatti, a 1958 Ferrari Testa Rossa and a 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago; making Ralph Lauren's range of cars 'a museum of automotive history, an archive of performance machines that represent the finest achievements in motorsport'. With this collection, Ralph Lauren shows that the automobile is a major art form created by the industry's biggest names: Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Porsche and of course, Ferrari, the high point of this unique collection. The exhibition will be the first time his collection will be shown in Europe; and with the distance the cars were required to travel, the transportation and instillation of cars was planned and carefully executed to maintain high standards of care.
