The C 63 AMG was introduced in 2012 as the fourth model of the Black Series, a line of track-oriented high-performance cars by AMG. The C 63 AMG received numerous upgrades, most notably a 510 hp engine and extensively modified bodywork to improve handling.
The Black Series was available in 2012 as part of a limited production run of 800 units.
When the top-of-the-line Mercedes coupe is not enough, you get the AMG. If the AMG is not enough then you have the Black Series. All the AMG, plus the motor from the SLS AMG supercar, as well as handling and aerodynamics to make it pliable. It simply does not get any better than this.
If the AMG version isn’t enough to satisfy your need for power and sophistication, the AMG Black Series takes the C63 a step further. This car offers up more than 500 horsepower by borrowing the engine from the SLS AMG supercar. Utilizing the same seven-speed automatic found in the C63 which provides four shift modes and launch control, 0-60 can be accomplished in 4.3 seconds and a quarter mile can be cleared in around 12 seconds. Maximum air flow is achieved through a gaping central air intake and a front splitter that comes to a precise point. Flared fenders accommodate wider tires in front and back. To say the least, this car not only looks the role, but has the machinery to back it up.
The C 63 AMG Black Series is powered by an M 156 codenamed V8 engine with 6.2 litre displacement. It comes with forged internals, a lighter crankshaft and a new engine control unit that increase power to 510 hp (517 PS; 380 kW) at 6800 rpm and torque to 457 ft·lb (620 Nm) at 5000 rpm. It sends power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission and limited-slip differential with fan-aided cooling.
The bodywork of the C 63 AMG Black Series has been altered by a front splitter in combination with a boot spoiler lid and diffusor, which generate more downforce for improved driving stability and cornering. It also comes with coil-over suspension and forged alloy 19" wheels that reduce unsprung weight to further improve handling. Overall, the Black Series has a moderate weight of 3854 lb (1748 kg) and somewhat nose-heavy chassis as indicated by a weight distribution of (54/46)%.
