Following the introduction of the C63 AMG Sedan, Mercedes AMG is working hard to develop and to bring an even hotter version of the car – the C63 AMG Coupe (check out the old one). Aimed to compete with the likes of M4 and ATS-V, the new Mercedes is yet to be revealed, but for now we have the teaser video showing a few elements of the new car.
The M3 and the M4 were just too refined and too focused for the C63 Sedan. Despite its engine being much more powerful than the one in the M3, at the top end, the Mercedes built cars weren’t as capable or as dominant as the Beemers. Coupe should change that. Not only that it will be lighter than the Sedan, but it should have a lower center of gravity, a few exclusive suspension tweaks making it even better than the BMW and it should have a specially tuned seven speed AMG Speedshift transmission. The car will get the same engines as the sedan, so the lower grade car will be powered by an engine developing 467 HP while the S will get a top notch four liter V8 with a power of more than 500 HP. Not only that this engine will make the C63 AMG Coupe accelerate to 60 mph in less than three seconds, but it’ll make the beautiful coupe roam past the Alfa Romeo Giulia too. Remember, the Giulia will be the counterpart of the BMW and the Mercedes and it’ll have a top speed close to 200 mph. According to some reports the new Benz won’t be able to come close to it. Electronically limited at 180 mph, the C63 AMG Coupe could be slower at high-end but we are certain that the car will make its mark on the tracks and curvy roads where its suspension and smart adjustment systems will make the most of the 500 HP it has under the bonnet.
