Mercedes-Benz reveals 517 hp C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series

Mercedes-Benz has released a Black Series version of its fantastic C 63 AMG Coupé. Producing an epic 517 hp from its 6.3L V8 unit, the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series is the most powerful C-Class model ever created, capable of hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds.

Looking like it’s just rolled off the racetrack, the Black Series wears wider wings (28 mm front, 42 mm rear – each side) to accommodate the car’s wider track, and larger 19-inch AMG light alloy wheels.

The high-performing AMG coil-over sports suspension and braking system comes as standard equipment, but for owners wanting something a little more hardcore, there’s an AMG Track Package. This includes ‘sport’ tyres, active rear axle transmission cooling, and an AMG aero package consisting of flics, a front splitter and rear wing – constructed from carbon fibre – for extra downforce.

The aggressive appearance that the Black Series brings to a model, lends itself well to the C-Class Coupé, highlighted not only by the extra width, but those sculpted arches and accompanying vented bumpers, especially the front item with that colossal front intake.

Inside, it’s strictly business with a pair of AMG sports bucket seats, while the rear bench has been ditched as a weight-saving measure, although owners can specify an extra pair of bucket seats in the back as an option. Apart from those aluminium pedals, the only other component of importance is that AMG performance steering wheel finished in nappa leather and DINAMICA microfibre complete with aluminium shift paddles.

The C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series will be making its world premiere during this weekend’s Formula 1 race at the Nürburgring, before hitting showrooms in January 2012. If you want one you’ll be needing €115,430.
