The C63 AMG recipe is simple; wedge an enormous 6.2L aspirated V8 into a C Class, add a locking differential, exorbitant amounts of power and the ability to disengage all driver aids. Consider this the swansong for the wildly-oversized, brutal, high-revving V8’s that Mercedes have been cramming into small sedan’s and coupe’s for more than a decade. The AMG C63 Black Series is less about track-focused precision and more about wild power slides, backed by a sonorous soundtrack. What the Black Series lacks in exactitude, it more than makes up for in theatre.
In case the 380kW/620Nm V8 left you wanting, the owner of this C63 AMG Black Series has added a Kleeman Supercharger- just for good measure. Manufacturing supercharger systems exclusively for Mercedes Benz, Kleeman is one of the most trusted names in Mercedes tuning circles. Combining stunning performance and exceptional reliability makes Kleeman superchargers an ideal addition to the naturally aspirated C63- filling gaps in the rev range and improving throttle response- creating a greater sense of urgency under acceleration.
One of only thirty-two to be delivered to Australia, this 2012 Mercedes Benz Black Series C63 is one of the most exclusive and collectable models in recent history. Limited production numbers and a move away from naturally aspirated engines means that the C63 Black Series is likely to cement its status as a future classic over the next decade as collectors scramble to reserve their piece of automotive history.
