Mercedes-Benz may have just recently revealed its latest C63 but that is just the start for high-performance C-Class models. Down the road, a coupe variant will be offered of the new Mercedes-AMG C63 as well as a convertible. X-Tomi Design has decided to imagine how the future range-topping Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe will look when it comes to fruition!
When the car does reach the market, we expect it to be available in the same C63 and C63 S specifications as the sedan. It will rival the likes of the BMW M4, Audi RS5 and new Lexus RC F Coupe.
Both the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 and C63 S sedans feature the same 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine as the Mercedes-AMG GT. The AMG C63’s engine is differentiated from the GT’s in that it doesn’t feature dry sump oil scavenging meaning it is now dubbed the M177 instead of the M178.
The entry-level 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 delivers a total of 469 hp at 5500 rpm as well as 479 lb-ft of torque between 1750 and 6250 rpm. These figures represent an 18 hp gain and a 37 lb-ft increase in torque over the previous-generation C63 AMG. In the range-topping Mercedes-AMG C63 S, the car delivers a potent 503 hp at 5500 rpm and 516 lb-ft of torque from 1750 to 6250 rpm. This is even more power than the old C63 AMG 507 Edition which delivered 500 hp and 450 lb-ft and is in line with the AMG GT S.
When it is all said and done, the new 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 sprints to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds in sedan guise and 4.2 seconds in the optional Estate body style. By comparison, the C63 S reaches the same mark in 4 seconds flat as the sedan and 4.1 seconds as the Estate. Both variants and body styles are limited electronically to 250 km/h.
