Key facts

C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series Summary

  • The most powerful C-Class to date, with just 66 ever destined for the UK
  • Fourth Black Series model to be launched by AMG since 2006
  • The C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series features a raft of advanced engineering features including adjustable coil-over sports suspension, a high-performance compound braking system, a honed aerodynamic package, lightweight alloy wheels and an AMG rear axle differential lock
  • Only 600 examples of the limited edition C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series were produced
  • The hand-assembled, naturally aspirated, 6.2-litre V8 engine boasts power and torque increases of 60 hp and 20 Nm over the ‘standard’ C 63 AMG Coupé, pushing total outputs to 517 hp and 620 Nm respectively
  • Weighing in at just 1,635 kg, the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series sprints to 62 mph from standstill in just 4.2 seconds and continues effortlessly to an electronically limited 186 mph top speed
  • Race track heritage is flamboyantly expressed through striking visual aerodynamic features including black carbon-fibre front splitter, larger carbon-fibre side skirts and a new carbon-fibre rear apron with central diffuser and fully integrated exit ports for the four rectangular chromed exhaust pipes
  • Additional sporting highlights include a rear lip integrated into the boot lid to improve high-speed downforce, striking large air intakes in the front apron to cool the engine, and two openings in the aluminium bonnet to release the hot air generated in the engine bay
  • Special ultra-light AMG titanium grey alloy wheels borrow technology from the SLS AMG making them a full 11 kilogrammes lighter than comparable alloys with a conventional design, helping to reduce unsprung masses and thus enhancing suspension response and steering precision
  • The hallmark feature of a Black Series model is the AMG coil-over sports suspension. Track-inspired, it features three-link MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension, widened by 40 mm and 79 mm respectively, and joined by lengthened anti-roll bars and new springs and dampers optimised for greater responsiveness
  • Factor in the AMG rear axle differential lock and speed-sensitive hydraulically-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series becomes a tarmac predator with exceptional cornering ability and pinpoint high-speed agility
  • Optional extras include the AMG Track Package (£5,170) which adds Dunlop sports tyres and active rear-axle transmission cooling, and the eye-catching AMG Aerodynamics Package (£6,995) that boasts an adjustable carbon-fibre rear spoiler and functional carbon fibre front splitter and fins
  • Track-ready interior includes four sports seats, or for the more focused driver a pair of AMG sports bucket seats are available as a no cost option with the rear two seats making way. Seats are covered in a combination of Artico and black Dynamica microfibre upholstery
  • Completing the sporty interior fittings are the nappa leather AMG performance steering wheel, featuring squared off top and bottom sections, red seatbelts to complement the red topstitching around the cabin, and Black Series logo that features on the high-gloss black piano lacquer finished dashboard
