Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black announces itself

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black

Images of this car have been emerging on websites around the globe. The car, we are told, is the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black and it magically appeared at a Mercedes event at the Le Castellet circuit in France. As if AMG wasn’t already enough, Benz goes back in black to turn the dial way past eleven.

The snorting bonnet and muscular wheel arches give the first clue that something special lies beneath. Confirmed details are scarce right now, but in the case of the C63 AMG Black, special is a 6.2 litre V8. It produces around 490hp or, if you got a bonus this month, you can have 520hp thanks to the even Blacker version, otherwise known as a Performance Pack.

Predictions say 100km/h will be knocked off in about 4 seconds, let’s be daring and say 3.9 might be achievable. After all there’s E-Class bits, including a slippery diff in the back and a fancy MCT gearbox at the front to help wage an ongoing war between rubber and asphalt.

Production of this model won’t be limited and when Mercedes-Benz releases final confirmed details we’ll bring you the word. Remember, once you go Black…

There’s some more pics after the break and a nice reminder from Jeremy Clarkson as to why the AMG Black series is worth the fuss.

Perhaps the black-in-black would look better but red… meh

I like it, I’d have one, but then again pricing may be prohibitive.

Beano you could be right with the pricing. I have since read a bit more about this car. It’s no longer the all out GT3 competitor with many bespoke parts. Heck it even has rear seats. The old one used to be GT3 money, but not this one methinks.

you’re right – the old one was more bespoke. the old one even had carbon skinned doors.
