The brand new AMG 4.0-litre V8 engine with biturbo charging is already setting standards in the Mercedes-AMG C 63. The S-model generates even more output with 375 kilowatts and 700 Newton metres from 3982 cubic centimetres of displacement. NANOSLIDE technology and new high-strength alloy components ensure reliable performance even in borderline areas – and do so with moderate consumption figures.
But it's not just the enhanced V8 engine that makes the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 S king of its class. Instead, it is the interaction of its dynamism-oriented vehicle components, such as the AMG Ride Control sports suspension with 3-stage adaptive damping system, its dynamic AMG engine mounts, its AMG high-performance composite braking system and electronic AMG limited-slip rear-axle differential; all these guarantee tangible power delivery.
