The 2012 Mercezes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series has a new claim, as on other AMG models.

Driving experience is further enhanced by the AMG adjustable coil-over sport suspension, AMG has a high performance composite (two pieces) braking system and exceptional functionality of standard equipment. Line AMG package with ultra high performance tires and active cooling for the rear axle drive unit is available as an option for even better dynamics, while the AMG Aerodynamic exterior package including the wings and rear adjustable carbon fiber spoiler.

With the new C63 AMG Coupe Black Series, AMG is presenting an exciting sports car for performance enthusiasts with a passion for great cars at the horsepower - it also marks the continuation of the impressive Black Series strategy, which started back in 2006. AMG, the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz Cars, once again displaying his expertise in the design and development of emotion-filled, high-performance cars.

High Torque M156 naturally aspirated engine is fine-tuned specifically for the new two-door models. Forged pistons, connecting rods and lighter crankshaft all come directly from the SLS AMG and equipped by the new engine control unit. Consequently, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph takes just 4.2 seconds.

Optimized engine cooling oils provide more performance even under harsh conditions-track racing. With the help of the components of the SLS AMG, engineers added a 50 percent to the cooling surface of the oil cooler. Power transmission is handled by SPEEDSHIFT, highly acclaimed innovative AMG MCT 7-speed sports gearbox. Four transmission modes, rev-matching function and RACE START provides maximum driving pleasure and high level of flexibility. In "Sport plus" and "Manual" mode gear requires a mere 100 milliseconds.

On the inside, two manually adjustable bucket seats carbon composites. You will see a pedal set with satin finish grippy dots, AMG three-spoke multi-function steering wheel and sporty universal carbon veneer. Throughout the day, the chair has to offer just the right amount of support each time the lateral g-forces built. Visibility to the outside world is to convince large, to determine where to place the wheel in cornering, and a decent view out the back are sure we can see the hot neighbor invaded the sediment behind them with a calm and keep at a safe distance.

Fun and games ensue with the optional AMG Performance Media system that's programmed through the onboard COMAND display borrowed from the SLS AMG. Its various functions work impeccably, to the point that it's almost a little too tempting to glance over at the readout while you're hammering along. The informative details this system provides is likely one of the best driving school tools possible short of having a pro sitting shotgun (the g-force matrix and circuit lap time functions being our favorite), but it's important to keep one's eyes on the tarmac ahead.

AMG has two special packages to offer for even further enhanced dynamics. The AMG Track package comprises 255/35 R 19 front and 285/30 R 19 rear sports tires from Dunlop. They were developed exclusively for the C63 AMG Coupé Black Series and dramatically increase grip. Active cooling on the rear-axle drive unit improves performance under tough race-track conditions. Its cooling module is located in front of the diffuser insert in the rear valance for optimum airflow.

The AMG Aerodynamics package includes exterior winglets made from genuine carbon-fiber on the front valance. There is also a fixed carbon-fiber spoiler at the rear with adjustable aerofoil. Both components not only increase the downforce at the front and rear axle, they also optimize the vehicle's aerodynamic balance.
