Mercedes adds new coupé to Black Series
Dubai, September 27, 2011
Mercedes-Benz has rolled out the new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series with a 6.3-litre V8 engine.
The car accelerates from zero to 100kh/h in just 4.2 seconds. The adjustable AMG coil-over sports suspension, functional standard equipment, and an AMG high-performance compound braking system, the company said in a statement.
The AMG Track Package is available as an option to enhance power and driving dynamics even further. It has sports tyres and active rear-axle transmission cooling, and the AMG Aerodynamics package including flics, a functionally tuned front splitter and an adjustable carbon-fibre rear aerofoil.
In visual terms the new vehicle is reminiscent of the SLS AMG GT3 customer sports car and symbolises the transfer of technology from the sphere of motorsport, which has been part of the corporate philosophy of Mercedes-AMG GmbH for 44 years, it said.
With its new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series, AMG is presenting an exciting sports car for enthusiasts that crave horsepower, and this marks the continuation of the Black Series strategy, which began back in 2006, the statement said.
“AMG has its roots in international motorsport. The new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series is the best proof there is for the permanent transfer of technology from the race track to the road. The numerous successes in the DTM, the customer sports range featuring the SLS AMG GT3 and our commitment to Formula 1, where we have been providing the Official F1 Safety Car and the Official F1 Medical Car for the past 15 years, continuously spur on our engineers and technicians,” said Frank Bernthaler, director, sales and marketing, Mercedes-Benz, Middle East and Levant.
“The C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series embodies the new AMG brand claim, driving performance, like no other AMG model,” he said.
The new coupé goes into production in January 2012, and will be available in the region in Q1. - TradeArabia News Service
