The high-revving AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine delivers stunning pulling power and
exceptional performance - the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe Black Series accelerates from
zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
The driving experience is further enhanced
by the adjustable AMG coil-over sports suspension, AMG high-performance
composite (two-piece) braking system and superb functionality of the standard
equipment. The AMG Track package with ultra high-performance tires and active
cooling for the rear axle drive unit is available as an option for even better
dynamics, while the AMG Aerodynamics package includes exterior winglets and an
adjustable carbon-fiber rear spoiler.
Wide, low-slung, muscular and ready
to pounce - the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe Black Series cuts an impressive figure. From
the very first glance, it is abundantly clear that the C63 AMG Coupe Black
Series is made for spirited driving on a closed track. Visually reminiscent of
the SLS AMG GT3 customer race car, the new high-performance vehicle stands
clearly for technology adopted from motorsport - something that has been a core
philosophy of Mercedes-AMG GmbH for 44 years.
With its 2012 C63 AMG Coupe
Black Series, AMG is presenting an exciting sports car for enthusiasts with a
passion for performance cars that are big on horsepower - it also marks the
impressive continuation of the Black Series strategy, which began back in 2006.
AMG, the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz Cars, is once again showcasing its
expertise in the design and development of emotion-packed, high-performance
"AMG has its roots in international motorsport. The 2012
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series showcases the ongoing transfer of
technology from the race track to the road. Great success in the DTM, the
customer sport program featuring the SLS AMG GT3 and our commitment to Formula
1, where we have been providing the Official F1 Safety Car and the Official F1
Medical Car for the past 15 years, are an ongoing source of inspiration for our
engineers and technicians. The C63 AMG Coupe Black Series embodies the new AMG
brand claim, Driving Performance, like no other AMG model", comments Ola
KSllenius, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
2012 C63 AMG Coupe Black Series'
Arrow-Shaped Front End Design
Whichever way you look at it, the 2012
C63 AMG Coupe Black Series proudly displays its motorsports ties. The
arrow-shaped front end with the central Mercedes star in the radiator grille is
the visual expression of its forceful forward thrust. The air intakes in the
distinctive front valance direct a continuous air flow through the large cooling
modules, while two openings in the aluminum hood aid the outflow of heat from
the engine. The angled struts in the front skirt emphasize the vehicle's width
and the black front splitter beneath provides aerodynamic balance.
The distinctive design continues
through to the side view. The newly developed front axle with wider track is
accommodated by new fenders, extended by 2.2inches. "6.3" badges indicate the
sheer power of the large-displacement, eight-cylinder, high-revving, naturally
aspirated engine beneath the hood. The impression of air outlets behind the
wheel arches is evocative of powerful racing cars, while the newly designed AMG
sills bear black trim elements that continue the visual of the front splitter.
The rear fenders have also been widened by 3.3inches to house the track of the
rear axle. Virtual air vents ahead of the rear wheels complete the picture.
