Mercedes Benz have launched the latest in their portfolio of mad luxury sports cars - the 2017 AMG C63 S.
It’s powered by a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8, thundering out 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque onto the tarmac via a seven speed automatic. The “regular”, non-S C63 puts out 469 HP/479 lb-ft torque, while the C63 S holds a commanding lead over rivals - the BMW M3 has a 78 HP deficit in comparison.
The C63 S coupe obviously has less weight compared to the 4-door C63, reaching 60 MPH faster, clocking in at 3.7 seconds. The S also comes with high tech carbon-ceramic brakes, electronically controlled differential, and a Race setting for the drive selector that takes things to a whole new level of madness.
AMG insists the C63 coupe is not just a 4-door C63 with fewer entry points, it’s wholly re-engineered to be a proper GT.
