Mercedes new AMG C 63 line-up revealed

August 2, 2018

The refreshed Mercedes-AMG C 63 is now on sale with prices starting at £66,429 for the C 63 Saloon, with the Estate costing from £67,629, the Coupé from £68,719 and the Cabriolet completing the line-up at £72,537.

The AMG C 63, which maintains its reputation for combining thrills and ultimate driving performance, uses AMG’s hand-built 4.0-litre V8 ‘hot V’ bi-turbo petrol engine which generates 476hp or 510hp for S models.

For the first time the C 63 now comes with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission (previously 7G), which has been specially designed for shorter shift times. A wet start-off clutch continues to replace the torque converter, ultimately saving weight and optimising throttle response.

AMG Ride Control suspension with adaptive damping adjustment and an electronically controlled rear-axle limited-slip differential are now standard on all C 63 models. The C 63 S also boasts dynamic engine mounts, combining comfort with dynamic performance by reducing vibrations in the engine/transmission unit.

The C 63 Saloon can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.1 seconds (C 63 S is 4.0 seconds), while the Estate takes 4.2 seconds (C 63 S is 4.1 seconds). The Coupé can travel to 62 mph from standstill in 4.0 seconds (C 63 S is 3.9 seconds) and the Cabriolet takes 4.2 seconds (C 63 S takes 4.1 seconds).

The standard C 63 has an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph, while all C 63 S models can reach 180 mph (174 mph for the Estate and Cabriolet).

Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, performance exhaust, Multibeam LED headlights, 12.3-inch digital cockpit display, 10.25-inch central display, Comand Online, ambient lighting with a choice of 64 colours, keyless start, wireless phone charging, and memory seats. The C 63 S adds nine-stage AMG traction control, AMG Track Pace, AMG performance seats and 19-inch alloy wheels.

For £2,595 – or £1,195 for the C 63 Cabriolet – customers can opt for the Premium Plus equipment line which includes Burmester surround sound system, panoramic sunroof (not available on Cabriolet), a 360° camera and Keyless-Go Comfort package.

The Driving Assistance package costs £1,695 and includes Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, BAS Plus with Cross-traffic Assist, Distronic Plus with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot, Pre-Safe Brake with pedestrian detection and Pre-Safe Plus.

AMG’s high-performance ceramic braking system can be added for £4,285.
