Spyshots Next Generation Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series

Watch out RS5, watch out M3. The guys over at Mercedes AMG are busy developing a version of the C-Class that the Bavarians should be scared over, a brand new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series.

The Germans took a C 63 AMG and send it to the gym to get a little work out. Let it build some muscles both under the hood with more power and on the outside with wider fenders. The hand built 6.2 liter V8 is expected to deliver some 510 horsepower via the AMG seven-speed speedshift gearbox to the rear axle. Hopefully there will also be some less weight for the engine to carry around.

The wider fenders will not be the only visual changes, the front spoiler will be larger and the rear diffuser will feature some Formula 1 looks. Bigger brakes with ceramic discs will make sure the Black Series stops when needed.

These photos show a test mule for the Black Series undergoing cold weather testing in Northern Sweden. The C63 AMG Black Series saloon will be followed by a version of the C 63 AMG Coupe later on for those who want the sportier Coupe look. The C63 AMG Coupe Black Series will then be a true successor to the CLK 63 AMG Black Series first showed in 2007.

  1. I hate the marketing divisions in every car manufacturer. Once they made successful model and they try to milk the cow till the last drop and they ruin everything the original model is. What’s next, GL AMG Black Series?

  2. Kris AMG has been around for along time. They started out as a tuning company completely seperate from Mercedes and eventually became part of the company. Its not about milking your mother its about giving a market what they are looking for. The c63 is a very awesome car and is tottally different from the normal c class in almost every respect. The original c class was nothing to write home about so im not really sure what you are bitching about. The AMG tuning program radically changes each of the cars it has produced. This will be the third black series car with their roots in racing development I highly doubt they would do a GL black series.

  3. Wow, wow, wow, Rick, wait a minut! Don’t you enlighten me about AMG ‘couse I probably know much more about it than you, but thats another story. I was talking about Black Series. They made the first one and I loved it, becpuse it was with bucket seats and no rear seat. It was total success so they bult SL black series. It was brutal. Carbon fiber anywhere, sportiest Mercedes for the last decade. And now instead of keeping that brutal sportiness, they make 4 door sedan. Why? I’ll tell you why. Becouse it will sell. But is it realy necessary. I don’t think so. It’s just like when Mario Theissen said that M Power will never produce turbocharged M car, becouse he said BMW Motorsport knows that their fans are purists and they won’t like such engine and despite that less than 2 years later we saw turbocharged X5M and X6M. Then it was 1 series M coupe and now M5 all with turbochargers. So who you think make that decision Mr. Theissen or the marketing division?

  4. You realy don’t get it at all. Black series cars has nothing to do with DTM cars. AMG already made road going version of the DTM car and it’s called, wait for it…….DTM! What a shock! And gues what it was with 2 doors ‘couse Mercedes raced 2 doors CLK in DTM at that time. If this one is the next road going DTM I’m OK with it. But if the title is right and this is the next Black Series it’s just wrong.
