The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series arrives in Australia

The start of the eventual 32 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series vehicles in Australia has begun. The limited edition vehicle was delivered down under and will be shown off at the Australian Grand Prix.

Arriving from Affalterbach, the home town of the Mercedes-Benz AMG, the car has already been highly anticipated for a number of months by automotive fans.

Looking sporty

The car looks so sporty and appealing that anyone would be able to tell that it is very fast. The aggressively styled bodykit, menacing tail pipes and large alloys make the C63 AMG Black Series one of the best looking cars in the world. As an option, a carbon fibre rear wing can be attached, enhancing the car’s performance and looks at the same time. Purchasing the aerodynamic package gives the car a low chin spoiler along with matching carbon side plates.

Shown off at the F1 Grand Prix

A beautiful Diamond White version is the model in question that recently landed in Australia. Fans will get to see the vehicle being driven at the Australian F1 Grand Prix which begins on March 15th. This particular version contains the optional aerodynamics package. Mercedes-Benz had to meet a deadline to develop the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series before the Australian Grand Prix.

Power

The engine built within the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series has a 6.2 litre V8 engine developing a tremendous 516 BHP along with 620Nm of torque.

Bringing race track performance to the road

Ola Kallenius, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Chairman said that the AMG Black Series brings track performance to the roads. He said “AMG has its roots in international motorsport. The C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is the best proof there is for the permanent transfer of technology from the race track to the road. The C63 AMG Coupe Black Series also embodies the AMG brand claim of driving performance like virtually no other AMG models”.

Acceleration

In just 3.9 seconds, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Black Series reaches 0 – 62 MPH (when the car was fitted was the Dunlop Sport tyres, available as an option). With the standard tyres, the car achieves racing from 0 – 62 MPH in 4.2 seconds.

If you live in Australia and you like the sound of one, it is now too late to purchase one as they have all been sold out. Mercedes-Benz however has not ruled out the possibility of more being ordered in the future.
