Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

 

 

The W204 Series C 63 is arguably one of AMG’s finest moments to date. It has a completeness to its dynamic repertoire that has eluded many previous Mercedes AMG products. Apart from being shatteringly quick and beautifully made, it’s also just a fantastic car to drive. There's a lot to like about a roomy and versatile 4-seater saloon that goes and sounds like a C 63. 

Creating the awesome soundtrack this car generates is the legendary hand built 6,208 cc M156, naturally aspirated 32 valve V8 engine. In standard form the engine produces around 457 BHP and 442 ft lb of torque.  

This particular car has had some modification work to the engine ECU software through a modified map and upgrades to the engine inlet system resulting in a power output in excess of 500 BHP.

To ensure everything can come to a comfortable stop once all that horsepower is unleashed is a high-spec Racing Brake® lightweight 2-piece disc system.
