Mercedes-Benz unveils hot C63 AMG Coupe Black Series

Mercedes-Benz planned to present the Black Series edition of its C63 AMG Coupe during the German Grand Prix at Nurburgring, but the German carmaker changed the plans and showed the beautiful car model.
Its sales are scheduled to start in January, with a starting price in Germany of EUR115,430 and Mercedes announced on a side note that former McLaren-Mercedes F1 driver David Coulthard was the AMG divisions new ambassador. This potent version of the C-Class Coupe appears to be quite familiar to the models that carried the Black Series tag before it. The regular C63 Coupe's naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8, being able to deliver an impressive 517HP and 620 Nm of torque, thanks to AMG's modifications that include forged pistons, conrods and crankshaft, 50% bigger cool oil together with a new ECU. A seven-speed dual-clutch AMG Speedshift transmission connects the power to the 19-inch rear wheels, while the gearbox features four modes and boasts its fastest gear change time, in Manual or Sport, in just 100 milliseconds.
The C63 AMG Black series delivers an incredible performance, being capable of accelerating from a standstill to 62 mph in only 4.2 seconds. The good news continues with the novelty of the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe that consists in being electronically controlled and linked to the ESP stability control system, which, in its turn, integrates three settings. Surprisingly enough, the sportiest setting appears to be completely deactivated. The front and rear tracks were widened by the engineers with 40 mm and 70 mm respectively, also fitting stiffer anti-roll bars together with an adjustable coil-over sports suspension, while the braking system incorporates 390 mm front and 360 mm rear discs, with six and four-piston calipers respectively. In terms of design, new elements are available for the newest member of the Black Series, such as a redesigned rear bumper with quad exhausts, chunkier side sills, bloated wheel arches and a front bumper that features huge air intakes. The interior is described by red seat belts, a sport steering wheel wrapped in Nappa leather, high-gloss black piano inserts on the dashboard along with the Black Series logo and a two-seat configuration, but Mercedes-Benz also provides a four-seat one as an option.
The Track package and the Aerodynamic package are offered by Mercedes as optional with the first one comprising a differential cooler and special Dunlop tires, while the latter offers a carbon fiber rear spoiler together with carbon fiber aerodynamic aids on the front bumper.
