Mercedes opens order book on C63

Mercedes Benz has announced pricing of their upcoming Mercedes-AMG C63 S model.

Available from the third-quarter of this year, the model will be available from $164,900 for the sedan and $167,900 for the estate.

Despite the name, the car is now powered by a 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine closely related to the power unit in the Mercedes-AMG GT S. Producing 375 kW of power, the C 63 S consumes just 8.6 litres per 100 kilometres (combined), Mercedes claiming it is the most fuel-efficient eight-cylinder car in the high-performance segment.

Standard equipment includes the AMG Ride Control sports suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers, the electronic rear locking differential and the AMG Dynamic Select drive programmes.

A limited edition “Edition 1” model available from market launch.

A new feature for the model is dynamic engine mounts – as used on the Mercedes-AMG GT. The dynamic mounts can adapt their stiffness smoothly and in fractions of a second to the prevailing driving conditions and style. Soft engine mounts improve comfort by better decoupling noise and vibration. Handling and agility, on the other hand, benefit from slightly stiffer mounts.
