The luxury German automaker, Mercedes-Benz, has finally decided it is time to showcase its latest generation C-Class, the C63, in its AMG modification package. The automaker has officially introduced the C63 AMG lineups for 2015 in the ongoing 2014 Paris Motor Show. Needless to say, this is a very good attraction, particularly for fans and owners of the Mercedes-Benz cars alike.
In the auto show in question, the automaker reveals a number of C63 AMG models, including the one that the company has been teasing for quite some time now, the C63 AMG GT. In addition to the GT trim, there is also the sports sedan as well as the wagon version of the model. The latters are to come in two options. The standard Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will have a total power of 476 hp under its hood with 650 Nm of torque that comes from a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine. The C63 S, in comparison, offers customers with 510 hp in total, combined with 700 Nm in torque. This is possible because its engine is similar to that on the AMG GT.
The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG S is the fastest sedan that can go from 0-100 km/h in mere 4 seconds. However, the top speed is electrically limited to 250 km/h. Yet, for those who prefer luggage capacity over peak performance, they may as well go for the AMG S Estate trim. After all, it’s just 0.1 second slower than the S trim. Both versions, be it the S or S Estate trim, however, runs on the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) drivetrain which is mated to the 7-speed SPEEDSHIFT sports gearbox from AMG that ensures responsiveness of the car.
One thing that is absolutely different between the standard and the S trims of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, after all, is the locking differential system on the rear. Whereas the standard uses a mechanical lock system, the S trim takes advantage of the electronic locking system.
