► 2018 Merc-AMG C63
► UK prices are here
► Unveiled at NYIAS show
Mercedes has revealed prices for its updated C63 model range, after initially showing the new car at this year’s New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). So what’s the damage
The C63 range begins with the £66,429 saloon, and then rises to the £67,629 for Mercedes’ outrageous estate version. The coupe starts at £68,719, while you’ll have to cough up £72,537 for the open-topped C63 cabriolet.
Of course, if you want the extra performance of the S moniker, you’re going to have to pay a little more. On average, that S badge is going to cost you around nine grand more; the C63 S saloon starts at £75,408 instead of £66,429 – but it is 0.1 seconds faster…
As for the fastest model? That’s the £77,698 C63 S, which gets from 0 to 62mph in just 3.9 seconds. The C63 S Cabriolet gets from 0-62mph in similarly quick 4.1 seconds, but at £81,516, it’s the most expensive C63 model Mercedes sells.
Luckily, all models will come with 18-inch alloys, a beefier exhaust sytem and LED headlights as standard. Tech-wise, you'll also get the new 12.3-inch infotainment screen along with the 10.25-inch cockpit display as standard. The nine-or-so grand extra for a S model gets you nine-stage taction control, performance seats and larger, 19-inch wheels.
2018 Mercedes-AMG C63: everything else
Like the other models' updates, the C63 refresh is a minor one both inside and out. The front has a redesigned grille and the front bumper’s fresh design helps to widen the car’s stance, and there are two choices of aerodynamically clean alloy wheels.
The hotter C63 S version has a beefier rear diffuser, too. An optional AMG Aerodynamics pack includes a ‘more expressive front splitter’, thicker side skirts and body parts in gloss black.
2018 Mercedes-AMG C63: interior
Inside, there’s a new steering wheel, wider infotainment screen and a configurable digital instrument display. Merc’s Energising Comfort tech, which changes the audio, lighting, climate and seating settings to change your mood, features too.
The infotainment system also comes with a specific AMG section that has a glut of sports dials and a race timer.
2018 Mercedes-AMG C63: performance specs
The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 remains, producing 470bhp in the regular car and 503bhp in the uprated S version, with just a tenth of a second between both in terms of 0-62mph launch bragging rights.
All C63 models are rear-wheel drive, come with a nine-speed Speedshift auto and a limited-slip differential for that slip-slidey thing AMG does so well. The C63 S also comes with active engine mounts.
