The Mercedes C 63 AMG S derives its powertrain from the AMG GT, and offers a sub-4 second 0-100 km/h acceleration.

The C 63 AMG S was unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and is driven by a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine that develops 510 hp and 700 Nm, and takes just 4 seconds to complete the 0-100 km/h run on its way to an electronically-restricted max speed of 250 km/h.

The output of the rear-wheel drive sedan is accessed by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7-speed sports transmission that gets software & hardware revisions for better response over the regular C63 AMG.

An electronic rear locking differential, 7-speed SPEEDSHIFT transmission, AMG GT-derived dynamic engine mounts, and 19-inch wheels are some of the feature highlights.

Further differences are the electronic rear locking differential, AMG GT-derived dynamic engine mounts and bigger 19-inch wheels.

To differentiate it from the C Class sedan, Mercedes has added an aggressive body kit that leaves it with sportier bumpers, aerodynamic side skirts and a rear diffuser with a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system. A power-dome hood, AMG-branded grille and 19-inch lightweight alloy wheels complete the transformation.

The interior is sportier thanks to the sport seats, stainless steel pedals, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, AMG-specific instrument cluster, illuminated door sill plates and AMG-branded floor mats.

The C 63 S will launch through the CBU route, and its main competitors would be the BMW M3 and BMW M4.
