The 2016 C 63 S is part of the 2015-present Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W205).
Drive it before you can buy it on dealer lots – the new Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé won’t be available to the public until the summer of 2016 in Europe and 2017 in America. Even if you are not considering the purchase of a top-of-the-line, two-door Silver Arrow, this baby is worth a spin. Whether you consider the 503 horsepower twin-turbo V8 (the same motor as the AMG GT that runs as a safety car for Formula 1) or the German refinements that abound in the interior and exterior stylings, this car will please your senses and keep your attention. In short, the pinnacle of sports and luxury awaits you in Mercedes’ latest masterpiece.
The W205 C 63 S is powered by a 4.0L (3,982 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 503 hp (375 kW) and 516 ft·lb (700 N·m). It is the same engine as the Mercedes-AMG GT Safety Car used in Formula One, codenamed M178. By moving to the downsized and turbocharged engine, Mercedes claims the W205 version consumes 32 percent less fuel than the model it replaced.
The car uses a seven-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels and gets three-stage adaptive dampers specific to AMG models along with speed-sensitive variable steering. 0-60 mph (97 km/h) is done in 3.8 seconds along with a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h) for the C 63 S model if a request is made to Mercedes-AMG to raise the speed limiter.
The car was made available to the public in the summer of 2016 for Europe and in 2017 for North America.
