New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe
The New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe has been spotted testing all over the world.
Mercedes employees who have seen the completed, undisguised New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe call it gorgeous.
Mercedes-Benz is on a mission to take as much market share as possible from BMW 4-series, Lexus RC F and Audi’s A5 family and in doing so they’ve designed the New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe as a baby Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe.
The New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will have its debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
The New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will be wider and lower than the sedan version, however all the engines carry over.
AUTOCAR‘s source said, “We’re confident the new C63 Coupe will set the standard in its class. Performance-wise, it is a big step forward. Building on what we have achieved with the C63 saloon, it betters the old model in every vital discipline.”
On the top of the New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe’s food chain sits the mighty C63 with a 4.O Liter Turbo V8.
The sedan, wagon and coupe share the same platform. However, the C63 Coupe will have special suspension tuning, revised elasto-kinematic properties, a lower center of gravity and different camber rates.
These changes are to give the New C63 Coupe sportier driving dynamics and handling.
While the new C63 Coupe is going after BMW M4, Lexus RC F, and Audi RS5 the New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will also spawn the All Wheel Drive C450 Coupe to fight off the upcoming BMW 440is, and Audi S5.
The New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will offer a turbo four cylinder engine with 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque in the C300.
C450 Coupe will offer a turbo six cylinder with 375 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque.
All variations of the New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will offer All Wheel Drive in the form of Mercedes’ own 4Matic with the C63 and C450 Coupe both offering the AMG version of the AWD system with 33/67 front/rear power distribution.
