New Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG features styling changes
February 9, 2011
Prior to its first public outing at the upcoming Geneva motor show, Mercedes-Benz has revealed a facelifted version of the C 63 AMG.
Writing for Autocar, Greg Kable explained that the new model has been a given a host of styling changes.
The changes and technical modifications help to bring about a reduction in consumption, Mr Kable noted.
“Also included on the new car is a new aluminium bonnet with more prominent power domes than those on the car it replaces,” he said.
“Inside, there’s a newly designed dashboard together with the same three-spoke steering wheel as the new CLS63 AMG.”
The facelifted C63 AMG, which retains the older naturally-aspirated 6.2-litre V8 engine, produces 457 brake horse power in standard guise.
However, using AMG’s optional Performance Package, it can reach as high as 487 brake horse power.
The saloon can, in fact, reach a top speed of zero to 62 miles per hour in just 4.4 seconds, while the estate model can cover the same distance in 4.5 seconds.
