The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe and new Mercedes-AMG GT R have been launched in India. The Mercedes AMG C 63 Coupe costs INR 1.33 crore*, while the Mercedes-AMG GT R retails at INR 2.48 crore*.
New Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe (facelift)
The current generation Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe was unveiled back in August 2015 and given a facelift in March 2018. Compared to the Saloon version, it features a wider track for better handling. Under the hood is the same M177 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine married to a 9-speed automatic transmission that feeds power to the rear wheels.
The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe’s engine produces 476 PS of maximum power at 5,500-6,250 rpm and 650 Nm of torque at 1,750-4,500 rpm. A 0-100 km/h sprint takes 4 second flat, while the top speed is capped at 250 km/h. Mercedes-Benz does offer an option to increase the top speed to 290 km/h, though.

New Mercedes-AMG GT R (facelift)
The Mercedes-AMG GT R needs no introduction in India, as it was originally launched in 2017. At that time, it was priced at INR 2.23 crore (ex-showroom). Now, it’s going to be relaunched. The track-focused but road-legal Mercedes-AMG 2-door coupe is a racing car with a lot of motorsport-derived technologies. The refreshed model launched this month features revised headlamps with three individual reflectors and new DRL. Changes on the inside include a new steering wheel with touch-control buttons, 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster and a bigger, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Under the hood, there’s the M178 4.0-litre biturbo V8 petrol engine good for 585 PS of maximum power at 6,250 rpm and 700 Nm of maximum torque at 2,100-5,500 rpm. A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission sends drive to the rear wheels. The 0-100 km/h acceleration time is 3.6 seconds, while the top speed is an unrestricted 318 km/h.
Following the aforementioned AMG models this month, Mercedes-Benz will launch the A-Class Limousine in India in June. Know more about the upcoming compact luxury sedan in our special report here.
