2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Release Date, Specs, Review, Price – In spite of the fact that we haven’t even had the opportunity to see the C63 Coupe prototypes or mules of the forthcoming vehicle of the C class, by the looks of things, the new vehicle seems like it will be making a debut as early as by the fall of this year.
The above assumption is according to the latest report published in the Auto Express. Citing an unnamed insider official who is privy of the happenings inside the German automobile giant who put his career on the line for giving ‘All About Cars’ classified info, said the vehicle will most probably be launched at the Frankfurt Auto Show slated for this year’s September.
So far, only the C-class Cabriolet prototypes have been caught on camera, despite the fact that it is its sibling which will essentially be launched earlier than it. Either way, this would mark the 2nd generation of the Coupe and the 2nd time receiving an AMG trim model.
In comparison to the first ever produced C63 AMG Coupe, the new vehicle will now come with a dissimilar engine, moniker, and overall styling away from its sedan sibling. The new name will be as a result of the recent change in moniker strategy at AMG, which will affect all model’s future names.
Exterior Spy Pictures – 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe
If the already unveiled stunning S-class Coupe is any indication of how all the forthcoming Mercedes Benz vehicles are going to look in comparison to their sedan siblings, then the forthcoming new C63 Coupe will certainly be a stunner.
The vehicle will get a distinctive look through the blending of slimmer headlights and an overall assertive look at the front fascia will certainly make it unique. However, for the time being, the appearance of the new vehicle will only be speculated, but comparing the proportions of the unveiled prototypes and its convertible trim version, there shouldn’t occur any nasty surprises at all.
The front fascia of the new Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe will certainly come with an A-shaped front bumper that is dissimilar to the one found on the C63 sedan, pronounced side skirts, single-bar grille, and rear bumper that will incorporate the aerodynamic diffuser and the quad exhaust.
2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Interior Pics
Despite the fact that even the C-class Cabriolet hasn’t been found with an unmasked interior, it is therefore difficult to speculate about what the interior of the vehicle will look like in comparison to the sedan trim model, but there shouldn’t be much.
In spite of the fact that the Sedan and the Coupe share the same exterior measurements, the C-class Coupe interior might be a little more cramped, especially considering the passenger space, however the general interior space should be better than the 1st generation model.
Considering that the automaker would want to distinct the smallest coupe from its bigger siblings, the model might come with a concealed B-pillar that will deny it of the classy look associated with the S-Class or the E-Class Coupe.
Engine Specs – Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe 2016
The upcoming new model will be based on the Modular Rear Architecture (MRA) platform, which will result in the Coupe shedding tons of weight in comparison with the first generation Coupe.
This will be as a result of the extensive use of aluminium in its underpinnings. Similar to the sedan, the vehicle will come with two variants at first of the novel M177 V8. The V8 will have a displacement of 4.0L and ‘hot-vee’ positioning of its two turbochargers.
The base model of the Coupe will come with an output of around 476 hp and a similar figure of pounds of torque, while the S-Coupe model will come with an output of around 510 hp and 516 pounds of torque.
Due to the car being lighter than the sedan, it will be able to accelerate from standstill to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds for the C63 Coupe model and 3.9 sec for the S C63 Coupe. These times are based on rumours, but the figures are based on what happened to the S63 AMG Coupe in comparison to its sedan version.
2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Price & Release Date
The current Coupe retails at around $63,000, therefore the forthcoming model will certainly come with a relatively higher MSRP. As for the release date, we expect that the vehicle will debut at the upcoming 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.
