Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe coming 8/19/2015
Mercedes-Benz is going to unveil the 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe C205 on August 19th, 2015
Mercedes-Benz has been teasing the new C205 C-Class coupe for some time now, however they have mainly focused on teasing the new Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.
As we approach the online unveiling of the new Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe, more and more details surface.
Here’s a recap of what we know about the new Mercedes-AMG C-Class Coupe:
Just like its sedan version the W205 Mercedes-AMG C63, the C205 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe comes in two models the C63 Coupe and C63 S Coupe.
The new Mercedes-AMG C-Class Coupe is longer, wider, and lower than its predecessor the C204 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.
The new AMG Coupe’s roof is almost 2 inches lower than the model it replaces.
2016 C63 Coupe is powered by a 4.0-liter AMG biturbo V8 that produces 470 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque and will only be available with 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT transmission and Rear-wheel drive layout.
2016 C63 S Coupe will be powered by a 4.0-liter AMG biturbo V8 that produces 505 horsepower and 520 lb-ft of torque, with 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT transmission and Rear-wheel drive layout, however there are rumors and pictures to suggest that the S model of the AMG C-Class will have an optional AMG tuned 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe is designed to be sportier than its sedan version, and more suitable to take on track duties.
The lower roof-line equates to lower seats which are lower by one inch compared to the outgoing W204 C63 AMG, and that allows for more headroom which would accommodate wearing driving helmet while tracking the monster V8.
Lower seats mean lower center of gravity, and along with tuned suspension and steering exclusive to the C63 coupe now only does the coupe handle better than its sedan version, it’s also faster around a track.
Mercedes-AMG has designed the new C63 Coupe to be sportier than anything else they offer save for the AMG GT and GT-S, and that results in less practical driving experience.
New official “spy shots” released by Mercedes-AMG suggest wider rear arches that house larger wheels it’s likely that the new Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe sports 255/35R19 front and 275/35R19 rear tires, however I personally hope for 255/35R19 front and 285/35R19 rear tires standard.
Comes August 19th, 2015 all details will be public.
Stay tuned and I’ll bring you all the details soon, maybe even sooner than the official unveiling. 😉
