Mercedes-Benz has released the official US price for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series. The brand new Black Series family member swaps owner for US $ 105,000, which is a US $ 42,000 increase compared to the base 451hp C63 AMG Coupe. The price does not include the destination charge, which was not communicated yet.
The C63 AMG Coupé Black Series is based on the Mercedes C-Coupé (C204) and designed for enthusiasts who are passionate about sports cars which are big on horsepower. This philosophy embodies the Black Series (BS) strategy, which began back in 2006 with the SLK55 AMG Black Series. Together with the CLK63 AMG Black Series and the SL65 AMG Black Series the new C63 AMG Black Series is the fourth member of the Black Series family.
Besides the wide bodied styling the Black Series offers a 6.3 liter V8 engine producing 517hp at 6,800rpm and 620Nm at 5,000rpm. The ultimate AMG accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds. For stopping power, massive brakes discs were installed, measuring 390mm at the front with six-piston calipers, and 360mm discs at the rear with four-piston calipers.
