Default Mercedes-AMG C 63 R

Wide-body C 63 R super-coupe to get more power, less weight and aero lifted from a DTM racer


Mercedes-AMG will replace the last-generation C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series with an even more extreme version, say new reports.

According to Car and Driver, the German high-performance division will rename its flagship rival for the BMW M4 GTS the C 63 R ó sharing the same nomenclature with the AMG GT R.

From then on, Mercedes-AMG will follow the traditional Black Series formula except with everything turned up to 11.

That means the new C 63 R will be lighter, more powerful and come with an advanced new aero.

Created to be the fastest, most track-focused C-Class ever, the US mag says that the hotter C 63 will come with lightweight carbon-fibre roof and front wings that will be considerably wider than the standard car to accommodate a completely bespoke new suspension set-up.

In total, AMG engineers should easily carve 100kg off the C 63 Sí portly 1725kg kerb weight, especially if it offers an even more extreme rear-seat delete option.

Under the bonnet the C 63 R will get a more powerful version of its twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8.

Instead of the usual 375kW/700Nm, expect the C 63 R to produce around 450kW/850Nm ó the same as the current E 63 S.

With that level of power expect it to eclipse the 3.9 seconds the regular car takes to reach 100km/h with a time of comfortably less than 3.5 seconds.

Top speed should be around 320km/h.

Set to arrive in 2018, Car and Driver has tipped AMG to also offer the C 63 R as a sedan too.

2019 Mercedes-AMG C63 R: The Ultimate Track-Focused C-class

Further evidence of AMG's commitment to retina-detaching performance.

What it is: The ultimate performance C-class, wide-bodied and carbon-fiberized. In the past, AMG mightíve called it the Black Series, but AMG has begun badging its track-focused models with the letter R. Like the AMG GT R, the C63 R gets more power, loses weight, and benefits from increased downforce due to aerodynamic enhancements.

Why it matters: This expansion of track-focused offerings demonstrates AMGís continued commitment to retina-detaching performance. Also, one of our few gripes with the C63 is that itís heavier than the competition; the R should drop a few pounds.

Platform: A version of the existing C63 architecture lightened with carbon-fiber front fenders and roof. The C63 coupe already uses a wider body than the standard C-class, and because our sources spotted a disguised wide-body C-class sedan in Affalterbach, Germany, AMGís home, our money is on the R being available as both a coupe and a sedan.

Powertrain: Latitude is the AMG twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8ís middle name. Though it produces 503 horsepower in the C63 S, itís tuned for an additional 100 horsepower in the E63 S 4MATIC+. Such a significant power increase for the C63 R, however, might necessitate adding the E63ís all-wheel-drive system and nine-speed gearbox.

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S coupe

Competition: Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, BMW M4 GTS, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.

What might go wrong: Very little. This ultimate, double throwdown C-class is likely to be a stiff, track-focused proto-DTM car, with less *tolerance for road driving than its more street-compromised siblings. That wonít likely hurt it since more lux versions like the C63 and the C43 are available for the less committed.

Estimated arrival and price: New in 2014, the C-class traditionally follows a seven-year product cycle. Special versions like this usually arrive at the end, so the R is probably still a couple of years away, after the Cís mid-*cycle refresh. And AMG isnít shy about cranking up the sticker. A starting price about 30 percent higher than the C63 S coupeís will put its base price at a nice, round $100,000.

Very nice, but too compromised. Still take the E wagon and some sports car. Put that tune in the AMG GT R now...

That's always the case, when they get a Model where we like it, the price is out of the ballpark and you would be better off getting a Model up etc. like this what? 100 plus k. But it's looks great, to bad all the c class coupes don't have this kind of wide body to em.
