This is it! The 'new' Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe.
The biggest noticeable different is the addition of the Panamericana grill as seen on the Mercedes AMG GT R, and other flagship AMG models. As it appears the trend now, AMG 43 and 53 models get the twin-winged louvre and round quad pipes out back, while AMG 63 models get the Panamericana grill and 'rectangular' shaped quad pipes.
Other key changes are reworked fenders for added aero efficiency, larger, more pronounced air vents up front, and a revised diffuser at the rear. On the interior front, it gets the latest generation 'Smart' steering wheel, and much like the regular C-Class, gains a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an infotainment system with a 10.25-inch display.
The C63 will be once again powered by the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo in two states of tune, 350kw/650nm in the C63 and 375kw/700nm in the C63 S. The biggest change is that the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-Tronic transmission has been replaced by the new AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission which promises even shorter shift times. This ensures a 0-100kph sprint time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 290kph in the C63 S.
The coupe is expected to be unveiled at today's New York International Auto Show, and is expected to arrive in South Africa before the end of 2018.
