2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series Unveiled at 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show: Live Photos and Specs

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series was finally unveiled at Europe’s greatest motor show and we can present you the very first live photos from Frankfurt.

Being one of the attractions of the event, the new model has a wilder styling, more power, less weight, stiffer suspension and no rear seats, so it’s no compromise. The C63 AMG Coupe Black Series template also calls for a two-door, fixed roof bodyshell, even if the base car is only offered with a folding hardtop roof.

The 2012 Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Black Series keeps the naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 from C63, but power swells from the standard car’s 451bhp – or 480bhp if you spec the Performance Pack – to 510bhp. That brings it tantalisingly close to the E63, the C63’s big brother.

The shift mapping with the AMG Speedshift MCT sport auto seven-speed has been modified, meaning gear changes in Sport+ and Manual modes take just one tenth of a second. Also the steering rate has been tightened up versus than the stock C-Class AMG cars.

The interior features competition seats with leather and special Dinamica fabric feel swell on our backside and all the glitzy sport touches in there smack our awareness of all this just in case we didn’t get it already.

If you are a fan of the SL Black Edition from Prior Design, but almost 200.000 euros seems to be too much for you, then can get at half that price the new C63 AMG Coupe, same Black Series. If we comapre it with the standard C63 coupe, the price difference in Europe is a 35 percent hike. That should theoretically make the price for this in the U.S. somewhere around $90,000.

The Black Series, which is also fitted with carbon-fiber parts, will be available for customers early next year. For more official details, click here.

The manufacturer also announced that the car would be available with two new AMG packages – Track and Aerodynamics and you can see them here.
