2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Reviews
Autoblog has recently posted their 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S sedan review, and since the new W205 C63 is one of my favorite cars I thought I share it here.
The 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 codenamed M177 which makes 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque.
In their review they like the new 4.0-liter V8 and the sound it makes through its optional AMG Performance Exhaust at the cost of $1,250.
They call the heart of the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S, the new M177 Mercedes-AMG engine an exceptional engine.
The balance between viciousness and grace is perfectly met in this new C63. Whereas the outgoing car was a tail-happy banshee at times, the new model is a professional, poised beast that only breaks with sanity when thoroughly provoked.

Unfortunately Autoblog stuck with the manufacturer’s claims and didn’t perform a measured performance test, and they called the engine M178 which is only available in the Mercedes-AMG GT and GT S.
2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 and C63 S engine is codenamed M177 which is related to M176 found in the 2016 Mercedes-Benz G500 / G550 and M178 found in Mercedes-AMG GT and GT S.
Mercedes-AMG claims that the rear-wheel drive 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S does 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, however I expect it to do the same deed in 3.5 seconds.
The base Mercedes-AMG C63 starts at $63,900, and the Mercedes-AMG C63 S starts at $71,900 and a fully loaded C63 S can cost you over $100,000.
While you’re digesting the sticker shock, maybe you can think about it while you watch Telegraph Cars‘ Rebecca Jackson review the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S wagon which is not available in the US market.
I also recommend watching Ignition Live‘s review of the new C63 S. Their review is different than all other reviews. How so? Watch for yourself.
I’ll eventually end up buying the new C63 S coupe when it comes out as I’ve always been a sucker for V8, high powered german muscle cars AMG makes.
The 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S may not be a track weapon like the BMW M3, however it’s more refined, it’s powered by a raunchy V8 that sounds mean.
If I were to compare the new W205 C63 S with the BMW M3, I’d choose the former.
