Well, looks like there’s a new kid on the block. Mercedes-Benz has taken the covers off the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe. The two-door is as powerful as its sedan counterpart but features a sleeker body will definitely compete well with the BMW M3 as well as the CTS-V Coupe. It’s powered by a 6.3L V8 engine making 451-hp with a maximum torque of 443 lb-ft. Mated standard to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe will run from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.
Not enough? Consider Mercedes-Benz’s AMG Development Package to deliver an astounding 481 horses. Enhanced performance peaks with 0 to 60 mph acceleration to 4.3 seconds and a top speed increased to 174 mph. The C63 AMG Coupe hits showrooms in September, so expect pricing and further details in the coming months. (via egmCarTech)
