2017 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Interior. Carefully selected, high-grade materials with a pleasant touch and precision workmanship produce a level of perceived quality that is rare even in higher vehicle classes. Numerous AMG-specific controls underscore the motor sports heritage.
As an alternative to the standard sports seats in ARTICO/microfibre DINAMICA man-made leather, Performance seats are also available: these allow the occupants a lower seating position and are more strongly contoured for increased lateral support.
2017 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Exterior. The Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupé already fascinates at first glance with its impressive proportions. The expressive exterior design differs significantly from the Mercedes-Benz model, which shares merely the same doors, roof and boot lid.
The powerful 8-cylinder engine, together with the increased track width on the front and rear axles, calls for a redesigned front end and a model-specific rear assembly as well as new side walls. The flared wheel arches make the AMG Coupé 64 millimeters wider at the front and 66 millimeters wider at the rear, enabling the vehicle to hug the road better.
The sideline, too, presents an entirely unique face thanks to the large wheels, which finish flush with the body on the far outside, and the special side skirts. The lateral inward step from door to sill lends additional emphasis to the wide base.
In the diagonal view from behind, the muscular line from roof to shoulder via sidewall and wheel cutout looks especially impressive, lending emphasis to the impression of an intricately modeled sculpture with alternating light reflections. Fine detail: in typical sports car fashion, the exterior rear-view mirrors are mounted on the door rather than in the mirror triangle.
2017 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Engines and Transmission.

The C63 S Coupé accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, the C63 Coupé in 4.0 seconds. This makes the Coupé just a fraction faster than the Saloon – thanks to the wider tyres and shorter-legged rear-axle ratios. The top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited; 290 km/h with AMG Driver’s Package).
