Can you be the best regardless of whether you are not the most remarkable or the most expensive?
Yes, because quite possibly the most enticing propositions inside the Mercedes-Benz setup has always been the AMG version of the C-Class. Initially the passage level Mercedes, the C-Class is currently square in the brand’s midrange.
Taking one of your most remarkable engines and fitting it into one of your smaller cars is a demonstrated recipe, especially when the chef who cooked it up is called Mercedes-Benz.
The result is the AMG C 63 S Coupé , a Teutonic muscle car, one that rules the straights of the expressway, yet will make you smile from one ear to another roaring up a mountain road.
In the previous age, the sedan was the most imposing car in the arrangement – likely because it didn’t look like it. Be that as it may, in the latest age, the coupé is the one to have. Not just because it corners slightly better compared to its four-entryway sibling, yet additionally because it is the better looking family member. It would seem that a small S-Class coupé, a vehicle that has charmed car enthusiasts with its 2016 styling.
While the previous AMG C-Class was best appreciated from certain angles, the new C 63 S Coupé is stunning from each point. At the point when you tire of conquering that mountain at speeds that would turn Steve McQueen pale and make you just need to sit down at a restaurant, request “ein grosses casket” (a huge lager: without alcohol, of course, because driving a C 63 S Coupé is as of now irresponsible enough), and appreciate your car.
An aphrodisiac for an engine
Not for a really long time, however, because this Mercedes comes with a definitive aphrodisiac for car connoisseurs: a V8 engine just shy of four liters. Where most premium car brands downsize their engines (even Maserati’s latest SUV currently relies on V6 force) and use “exhaust-composers” (inside sound openings) or simply the speakers of the sound system to boost the engine thunder, Mercedes does not need this trickery.
The V8 is as boisterous as a distant thundering thunderstorm when you start it, however that storm front rolls in fast as soon as you push the choke down.

Be careful when you do as such, because you may black out. Helped by double turbos, the V8 has an impressive 510 horsepower.
Far more significant, notwithstanding, is that it puts down 700 Nm (!!) at just 1,750 rpm. Connected to a superb seven-speed transmission, it blasts from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and has a directed maximum velocity of 250 km/h.
It can, of course, speed up, much faster, however arriving is so much fun. Also, in most countries this maximum velocity is all that could possibly be needed to see you lose your license – and likely worse.
AMG has on occasion gone over the edge with styling, yet with the C 63 S Coupé is just correct. To fit everything in, the brand’s engineers needed to increase the track width of the car by six centimeters, which includes making the wheel arcs somewhat more extensive to accommodate the Michelin Pilot Super Sports. While some slightly more aggressive bumpers have been added, there are no crazy spoilers.
Of course, we can count on some tuning companies to offer this as a secondary selling choice for individuals who had the taste to select the C 63 S Coupé in the first place, yet perhaps lacked the confidence to understand that others probably won’t recognize it for what it is: a ruthlessly perfect sports coupé.
Perfection on the inside
That sense for perfection can also be found inside the cabin. Calfskin, Alcantara , and carbon fiber are united in a functional symphony that is as pleasing to the eye as it is ergonomically sound. Wood is also accessible to arrange, however that is perhaps more qualified for a non-AMG vehicle.
The three air vents in the center of the dashboard are placed in the shadow of what seems to be a haphazardly placed iPad. As much as you may dislike this display when your car is killed and its screen is vacuously black, you make certain to appreciate it even more when it is going. It functions extraordinary, but on the other hand it’s extremely easy to peruse . . . thanks in incredible part to its positioning, I remorsefully need to admit.
The best piece of the cabin can be discovered just over the AMG logo in the center of the car: an IWC dashboard clock. Styled like the dial of an Ingenieur model, it is there to help monitor the numerous hours of fun you will have with this car.
It’s entertaining yet you may almost disregard the clock inside the car. Not that you don’t see it, but rather that you don’t notice it since it fits in so well with the entire topic of this AMG. That is something I shockingly cannot say for all car-watch brand collaborations.
There is also a Mercedes-AMG C 63 version without the S, yet that one is lacking the electronically controlled differential and the active engine mounts that stiffen or unwind contingent upon the driving situation. Most drivers perfectly fit with the “normal” C 63, yet should you be fending off M4s and RS5s around you on the superhighway, you certainly don’t have any desire to think back and see on the off chance that you’re not going to get eaten by another of your own make and model!
The Mercedes-AMG C 63 S is actually surprisingly balanced so that both noble man drivers and race professionals can appreciate it to the fullest – on the two streets and the track!
You may even have a great time with it that you would consider using this Benz for your day by day commute: do it! Your neighbors probably won’t be excessively content with you when the V8 roars to life each day, however hello . . . not every person is so advantaged as to have the option to awaken to the sound of Mercedes’ best!
