Do you like the 2012 AMG C63 Coupe Black Series but you think it looks to trivial? Well, there might be a solution… Remember when Mercedes presented for the first time its new C63 AMG Coupe Black Series last month? At that time they mentioned that the car would be available with two new AMG packages – Track and Aerodynamics. Still, the German brand ‘forgot’ to give any substantial details.
If you’re interested in these packages, today is your lucky day because we have some spy shots taken at Nürburgring track of an AMG prototype fitted with both packages, revealing an almost race car like look for the luxury two-door.
Spy photographers spotted this wearing some extra track oriented goodies and the first thing even Stewie Wonder would spot the the fixed rear wing at the back. We can also spot a different front splitter and some carbon fibre flics as well as carbon fibre side skirts. We suspect that the power is unchanged ( we can always dream of more) but there might be some other parts that been changed for some lightweight parts in order to make it more track orientated.
The AMG Track Package comprises 255/35 R 19 front and 285/30 R 19 rear sports tyres from Dunlop. This tires have been exclusively developed for the C63 AMG Coupé Black Series, and they tangibly and measurably increase grip. Also active rear-axle transmission cooling improves performance in punishing race-track conditions. Another importan aspect is the radiator, which is located in the rear apron and the airflow passes through it effectively.
If you’re not satisfied with Track Package, you can also chose AMG Aerodynamics Package consisting of front carbon fiber canards,also know as flics as AMG calls it. They are made of genuine carbon fibre and located on the front apron. The package also includes a functionally tuned front splitter made of genuine carbon fibre and a fixed carbon-fibre rear aerofoil with an adjustable blade. Both components not only increase the lift at the front and rear axle; they also optimise the vehicle’s aerodynamic balance.
Other optional extras include:
• AMG Exterior Carbon-Fibre package (cross strut in front apron, exterior mirror housing, inserts on the side sill panel, diffuser insert and spoiler lip in genuine carbon fibre)
• AMG light-alloy wheels featuring forging technology, painted in matt black with a high-sheen finish on the rim flange, with 255/35 R 19 and 285/30 R 19 tires
• AMG carbon-fibre trim
• Fire extinguisher
• Intelligent Light System ILS
• Tinted side/rear windows
Price is reported to be around US$165,840.
