Late yesterday, August 19, Germany launched another Autobahn monster: the long-awaited 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.
I’ll go ahead and dive right into the juicy details that were unveiled in the press release.
Powering the new AMG C63 Coupe is a 4.0-liter V8 engine equipped with two turbochargers. Power released by the engine ranges from 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque in standard trim, to 503 hp and 516 lb-ft in the C63 S trim.

Performance numbers are equally as exciting, as this new coupe is anything but a slouch. The standard C63 rockets from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, while the S shaves of one-tenth of a second for its 0-60 sprint. Top speeds for the standard and S trim are 155 mph and 180 mph, respectively.
To ensure you hear every ounce of power coming from the V8, Mercedes-Benz has installed a model-specific exhaust system that houses “flap technology.” These flaps are connected to the C63’s modes and, depending on which mode is selected, they can close or open up for either a discreet exhaust note or an earth-shattering one.
Unfortunately, the details we can’t dive into are the prices, which have not been announced yet. So, be sure to check back with us for more information on Mercedes-Benz’s latest coupe as the information is released.
