They told us something fast was coming, and now we know what that something is.
The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe has been officially introduced to the world in a post on Mercedes-Benz’s Facebook page today. Four photos giving us a look at it “running some last laps at Hockenheimring before its world premiere at IAA later this year,” as the caption tells us.
On a special microsite tracking each step of this new C63’s introduction, you can see the bits and pieces as they were unveiled. June 8 they told us they needed “a V8 biturbo to be the cam car,” and on July 7 and 8 they showed us some shots of its camo.
The C63 has been getting some impressive upgrades over the past two years. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, introduced Sept. 24, 2014, featured the same 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 found in the Mercedes-AMG GT, and was the first model designed from the ground up by AMG. The original C63 AMG was wildly popular, and in honor of the move from a naturally aspirated to a turbocharged engine, on July 15 they introduced the Legacy Edition, built for South Africa.

Scheduled for Sept. 17 to 27, 2015, the International Motor Show won’t be far from Mercedes-AMG’s development center. Frankfurt am Main will surely be flooded with stunning cars throughout the show, but we’re now especially excited to see the new take on the C63 Coupe. Check out the photos and teaser video, and stay with us for more updates as they are released.
