2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe – Rendering
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
To pack a 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 from the C63 sedan.
The upcoming 2-door version of the latest Mercedes C Class is expected to make its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Ahead of its premiere, a slew of spyshots of the C Class coupe have surfaced from Germany, giving us a first look at the new C Class sans 2 doors.
Based on the spyshots, Auto Moto has come up with a rendering of the top-spec C63 AMG Coupe, which could be near accurate if Mercedes-AMG kept the design low-key rather than aggressive with flaring wheel arches, a sculpted hood, and large wing.
While the front end looks largely similar to its 4-door brother, the lack of 2 extra doors allows for a smooth coupe roofline that flows into the boot. The rear-end features a new set of horizontal wrap-around LED taillamps and a dynamic rear bumper with quad exhaust pipes.
Inside, the cabin will retain the C-Class sedan’s award-winning interior, featuring a free-standing COMAND infotainment display paired to a Touchpad controller, 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel, ARTICO leather upholstery with contrast stitching, and glossy black center console. The only changes it could get are sportier front seats and a performance-themed interior trim.
The C-Class Coupe will share it engine lineup with the sedan version, including the 4.0L V8 (M178) from the C63. Like the sedan, it will be available in two power states: 476 PS & 650 Nm in the base model and 510 PS & 700 Nm in the S version. Being based on the MRA platform, power is sent to the rear wheels, enabling the BMW M4-rival to hit 0-100 km/h in the sub-4 second category.
Mercedes will first unveil the regular and AMG Sport variants this year, followed by the C63 AMG coupe in 2016, reportedly.
