Transformation. The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 SE Performance is a true change of course in AMG’s 55-year history
The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 SE Performance is the most powerful series-produced four-cylinder in the world. The power development and the increase in torque are very spontaneous and immediate: as in Formula 1, the electric assistance of the exhaust gas turbo eliminates the turbo lag of the combustion engine, while at the same time the electric drive. to move. The electric powertrain and the 400-volt high-performance battery are exclusive internal AMG developments. These elements demonstrate the high-quality engineering competence of the Affalterbach developers. Just like in Formula 1, the battery is specially designed for rapid energy production and absorption with innovative direct cell cooling. The combined system output is 500 kW (680 hp) and the maximum combined system torque is 1,020 Nm, which are new maximum values for the C-Class.
Another highlight of the new model series, which was launched simultaneously as a Saloon and Estate, is that for the first time in a C 63, the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive transfers the drive power to the road, including Drift mode for more driving pleasure. Added to this is active rear-axle steering as standard, another unique feature in this segment.
Form follows function. The design of the new C 63 S differs from the Mercedes-Benz C-Class due to its more muscular proportions. The saloon and estate are based on a radically modified AMG body. The front structure is 50 millimeters longer and the front fenders are wider. In general, the outer dimensions differ considerably from those of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
