The fastest Mercedes-Benz C-Class ever
The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will be the fastest ever in the series ever produced. Forget about the stunning looks and the immense luxury offered throughout, the car has one hell of engine underneath the bonnet.
You probably wouldn’t expect it from a Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but the engine is able to produce an amazing 509 BHP. When driving from 0-62MPH at maximum speed, it is timed at just 4.2 seconds, which is quite a remarkable time. Its 6,208cc V8 engine can also produce 457lb ft of torque. The top is 186 MPH after being limited.
Coming under the “Black Series”, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG will be not only the most powerful C-Class ever produced but also one of the most spectacular cars ever produced by the company.
What’s included with the Black Series Mercedes-Benz models? There will be a seven-speed AMG speed shift dual clutch along with a wider track compared to the normal Mercedes-Benz C-Class. In order to handle all of that power, there are larger more powerful brakes included. The bucket seats add to the sporty personality of the car. The back of the car has the rear seats removed in order to lessen the weight, making it more dynamic. However these are able to be reinstalled upon request.
Where does the power come from? The control unit from the engine is remapped. The oil cooler has been enlarged by 50%, with the addition of the crankshaft from the SLS AMG supercar.
The CEO of the prestigious Mercedes-Benz AMG division said that the fact that the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is the F1 safety car naturally makes it a wonderful race track car that is well adapted to the road. He said “The new C63 AMG Coupé Black Series is the best proof there is for the permanent transfer of technology from the race track to the road. The numerous successes in the DTM, the customer sports range featuring the SLS AMG GT3 and our commitment to Formula One, where we have been providing the Official F1 Safety Car and the Official F1 Medical Car for the past 15 years, continuously spur on our engineers and technicians.”
