Mercedes Announces the Brand New C63 AMG Coupe
Mercedes has announced their latest weapon in the battle for the title of ‘Best High Performance Coupe’ and it’s called the C63 AMG Coupe. The new Coupe already has a lot to live up to following the previous Mercedes C-Class Coupe, so it’s good to know that Mercedes has already promised substantial upgrades over the C-Class model. Considering the competition the C63 AMG Coupe faces in the form of the BMW M4 and the Audi RS5, not to mention the Lexus RC F, these extra upgrades we’re promised are going to be important if Mercedes is to come out on top.
So what does the new C63 AMG Coupe bring to the table? We already know that the ‘S’ trim model of the new Coupe throws out an impressive 503 BHP with its 3982cc V8 engine and comes with two built-in turbochargers as standard. Straight out of the showroom, you’re looking at a 0-62mph of 4.0 seconds, with a maximum speed of 155mph. Here at GAD Tuning we’re more than familiar with the engine under the hood of this new Coupe, and we can confirm that in the right hands you can squeeze out an additional 12-15 BHP and around 35-40 NM of torque. If you opt for the standard C63 AMG Coupe you can still squeeze out around 476 BHP, with an extra 65-70 BHP following an engine remapping. Considering what you start with with the new C63 AMG Coupe, the remapped version will feel like your high performance coupe has been hitting the gym behind your back.
Mercedes have even thrown in a front splitter to reduce the front axle lift while accelerating and a discrete spoiler at the back to minimise any lift which you would have at the back. You’ll hardly even notice extra gear unless you want to – all this extra power comes at the small cost of an extra 60mm length and 64mm width in the bonnet. The rear is only 66mm wider too, using the extra width to accommodate a pair of 255/40 R18 tyres on the front, with a set of 285/35 R18 tyres at the back.
All in all, the new Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe is shaping up to be a stunning car. The interior has all the usual trimmings, marking it as a luxury vehicle for the most discerning of coupe drivers. When you’re ready to have your brand new Coupe transformed into the best car it can possibly be, make sure you call GAD Tuning for a switchable engine remapping.
