Source : 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé review
We drive Mercedes’ fresh full-fat C63 S Coupé for initially. the item’s a sleek although brutal 503bhp creation capable of 0-62mph in just 3.9sec The all-fresh Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupé represents a big challenge to the likes of the BMW M4, Audi RS5 as well as also Lexus RC F.Following on through the recently introduced C63 saloon as well as also estate, the item eschews its predecessor’s highly rated naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 engine for a smaller as well as also more efficient twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 – essentially the same unit used by the company’s GT performance flagship.Unveiled at the Frankfurt show in September, the powered-up two-door is actually set to reach the UK in March 2016 with the choice of two power outputs. In standard C63 Coupé guise its hand assembled engine produces 469bhp as well as also 479lb ft.inside the headlining S Coupé type driven here, though, the 90deg V8 receives additional boost pressure as well as detailed modifications to the inlet manifold as well as also dynamic engine mounts in which vary in stiffness depending on revs.The result is actually a further 34bhp as well as also 37lb ft, endowing the range-topping type having a sturdy 503bhp at 5500rpm as well as also 516lb ft on a band of revs between 1750 as well as also 4500rpm – exactly the same power although 37lb ft more torque than in which offered by the Mercedes-AMG GT S.the item also betters the M4 by 78bhp as well as also 111lb ft, the RS5 by 89bhp as well as also whopping 199lb ft as well as also the RC F by 33bhp as well as also 125lb ft.The reserves are fed through the latest incarnation of AMG’s seven-speed Speedshift MCT dual-clutch automatic gearbox, which operates in combination having a mechanical locking differential inside the C63 Coupe, although inside the C63 S Coupé the item comes allied to an even faster reacting electronic locking differential.The driver can choose between four different driving modes on the C63 Coupé as well as also up to a few on the S type, while the switchable electronic stability control system offers three settings: On, Sport as well as also Off.The styling of the latest C63 Coupé is actually significantly differentiated through standard versions of the fresh second-generation C-class Coupé. The only outside elements shared between the two cars are the frameless doors, roof as well as also boot lid. The remainder is actually unique.The wider Centeng has been developed to house a largely bespoke chassis featuring tracks in which are increased in width by 73mm at the front as well as also 46mm at the rear over the standard C-class Coupé at 1636mm as well as also 1592mm respectively. Wheels sizes vary according to type, with the fresh C63 receiving 18in rims as well as also the C63 S running on 19ins.Overall, the fresh car is actually 45mm longer, 107mm wider as well as also 12mm higher than before. Crucially, the item also rides on a wheelbase extended by 75mm over in which of its predecessor, endowing the item with added outside space if not a larger boot, which at 355 litres in capacity is actually 95 litres less than before.
