Mercedes has always been a company that fights back. The new C63 AMG for sale is a solid uppercut to the performance-sedan segment. In terms of power and performance, this new Mercedes Benz AMG puts everything else in its class to shame. We will take you through all the new additions to the new Mercedes C63 AMG and what it’s like to drive this sleek, monster of a vehicle.
The look of the new C63 is more refined and edgier than previous models. The New C63 AMG for sale has new front bumpers with deep air dams. These feed the intercoolers and actually help the car perform better. To help keep the weight down, the car comes with special lightweight alloy wheels. It has a unique Mercedes Benz C63 AMG grille and a new bonnet with subtle power domes and a new bumper shape that houses four exhausts.
Inside the C63 AMG for sale you will find Mercedes signature comfort. It’s a great place to spend long distances in. The seats are contoured and are perfectly set behind a small, unique AMG steering wheel with re-calibrated dials that is made from Nappa leather and is designed to give you that authentic racing feel. Setting for things like the AMG’s Ride control and the three-stage transmission modes are grouped around the standard AMG thumbwheel Touchpad controller which is conveniently mounted in the center console.
The car has three transmission modes that you can change inside the cabin. These modes are comfort, sport plus and race modes. In comfort mode you are enveloped in typical Mercedes comfort with the engine gently grumbling away. If you turn on Sport+ or Race modes, you awaken the beast. The response controls become incredibly sensitive and this is accompanied by a savage snarl from the new designed exhausts.
Under the hood
Mercedes has done away with the old C3’s naturally-aspirated 6.2-litre V8 and fitted the Mercedes C63 AMG with an all new four-litre V8. Yes, this is a drop in capacity but they have gone the turbo route this time and use two altitude compensators to boost power. These are mounted inside the engine’s center and they definitely make a big difference in the car’s performance.
This new engine puts out a whopping 350kW and 650Nm, which completely destroys anything in its class. You might be thinking that this isn’t exactly the most powerful car that Mercedes makes, and you would be right, but because it only weighs 1715kg, you are in for one hell of a ride. Mercedes has also installed a new breaking system which has emphasis on fade resistance, meaning that breaking between corners feels effortless. Not only does this car go fast, it stops fast too.
If this isn’t enough, the Mercedes Benz C63 AMG for sale has something called ride control. This is an adjustable dampening suspension system that is operating through electronically-controlled three-stage dampers. You can choose between three levels of suspension stiffness with the touch of a button.
