Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG 2012 revealed
The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG has been revealed. Along with the face-lift, fuel efficiency has been improved and if 457 hp is not enough for you, customers can also choose a performance package to get even more power.
The introduction of the AMG 7-speed sports transmission along with a new power steering pump helps to reduce the combined fuel consumption by about ten percent to 12 litres/100 km. The output of the AMG 6.2-litre V8 engine is unchanged at 457 hp and can be increased to a maximum of 487 hp with the optional AMG Performance package. New assistance systems have also been added.
The front gets a new radiator grille with a large Mercedes star, as well as a new AMG front apron with a lower cross member painted in black, daytime running lights and side air outlets, inspired from the SL 63 AMG model. The C 63 gets new clear-lens headlamps and new 5 twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels which are painted in titanium grey. The new AMG rear apron has a black diffuser insert with three pronounced diffuser fins.
The new model should reach showrooms in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries by the summer of 2011.
