The 2016 Mercedes AMG C63 Coupe is an extremely good looking car and has the potential to break your bank and heart, at once.
The amazingly well-designed vehicle has been revealed much earlier, before the official launch at the Frankfurt Auto Show scheduled for September. Similar to the wagon and the sedan released in the C63 version earlier, this new car will be powered by a 4.0 liter twin turbocharged V8 engine. The basic variant of the engine will render 469 horsepower and 479 torque, whereas the optimized version of the same will be offering a boosted 503 horsepower and 516 pound feet of torque.
Buyers who love the AMG C63 Coupe sedan will undoubtedly love this new launch because both vehicles share similar hardware specifications and performance. However, the significant change is the sleek body which accommodates just two people and not four as the sedan does.
While the vehicle is a 2016 model, it won’t be launching in the United States, besides other regions until 2017, which is why it is being termed as the 2017 variant in specific regions. People who live in Australia will be able to get their hands on this coupe much earlier but they are limited to purchasing the S variant with an increased horsepower, pretty obviously leading to a higher price tag.
The Mercedes AMG C63 Coupe accelerates from 0 to 60 in just 3.9 seconds, while the boosted engine does the same in just 3.8 seconds. The maximum top speed rendered by the standard car is 155 mph and the other speedier S variant can go up to 180 mph. As both vehicles share the same engine, they use the same AMG speedshift 7-speed automatic gear transmission.
While the interior of the vehicle remains largely unchanged, the exterior design has received some significant modifications. The front and rear bumpers are uniquely designed for this particular double seater model. The guards are much wider which gives it the much needed sporty look that the car lovers adore.
An interesting addition to the C63 Coupe is the exclusive exhaust which is capable of varying the engine noise according to varying driving parameters. Buyers can choose to upgrade it to a performance exhaust which allows them to control the noise with a manual button. The Artico and Dinamica leather used in the sport seats add a touch of splendor to the already impressive vehicle.
