Mercedes-Benz A170 CDI
C63 Amg Released

Specifications:

457 HP
6,2-liter V8
100 km/u in 4.5 sec.
600 Nm @ 6.000 rpm
250 km/h topspeed

"Mercedes has taken the wraps of the ultimate version of its all-new C-Class sedan - the C63 AMG with 457 hp and 443 pound-feet of torque.

Under the hood is the same 6.3-litre V-8 that's in AMG versions of the M-Class and CL. In the C-Class it gives a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.


Mated to the engine is AMG's Speedshift Plus 7G-TRONIC transmission. Steering wheel shift paddles and three driving modes - Sport, Comfort and Manual - are standard. The newcomer will be the first AMG car to feature an automatic throttle-blipping function during downshifts. Mercedes say this enhances the driver's emotional experience, but also gives almost completely jolt-free downshifting.


It's also the first AMG to feature a three-stage stability control system, which allows the driver to pre-set the vehicle's dynamic thresholds. Put simply, this means he can predetermine at which point during an extreme maneuver he or she wants the stability control to activate.


A sports suspension and 18-inch AMG alloys (or optional 19-inch rims) will offer an outstanding driving experience, according to the German firm."

Those fender-flares are HUGE! Great-looking stance, very aggressive... with the power and specs to back it up - I want one!!!

no way I'll be able to afford it though - but maybe in 2010 I'll look to pick up a nice, low-mileage 2008 model...

love the new wheels - any news/specs on the widths and offsets? Will the 18s work with the C32? I think I'd like that look on mine...

Kudos to making an AMG that looks very AMG. A little Acura TL tossed in as well.

With a 0-60 of 4.5 it's starting to get to the point that you cannot use all the HP with two wheel drive. With perfect grip, it should be able to approach 4 seconds.

Maybe I'll give it a look -- after a few years of healthy depreciation!

Because no one would buy the rest of them then....they had to 'tune down' the C for that reason....

I like the aggressive look of the car alot. A few small things will need a little getting used to be I like it.....

Holy ****.
Now that's what I'm talking about. Finally they come up with a distinctive body style that further sets apart from non AMG models.
Power is not bad and I'm sure I'll get used to the WRX style fogs.
I can finally sleep well at night.

New C63

Hope they do a better job of distinquishing the actual AMG from the faux AMG (sport) I've seen a lot of these late model W203 sports running around and about, and from a distance it's a little tuff to sort them out from the real deal,... well at least until you get up on them. Then it's obvious!

they should've flared the rear fenders more to match the front.

FYI, it's part of their marketing strategy to adopt AMG body kits into non AMG models to help with the sale. And as far as sales number is concerned, it worked immensely.

This car looks fuccking AMAZING!!!!!! I can't wait to see dyno results. I bet it will be making more power then 457hp and the 0-60 in 4.5 I bet will be more like 4.1-4.3!

I'm aware that the pics above are of European model, but lets analyze the exterior differences between AMG vs US non AMG sport model:
1. Hood
2. Front bumper / spoiler
3. Front fenders
4. Grill (this one comes with chrome surround)
5. Side skirts
6. Trunk spoiler
7. Rear apron

And of course we'll get a pair of amber sidemarkers here in the US.
