Mercedes-AMG gives the C63 Coupe an update
Last week, our spies sent us photos of the updated Mercedes-AMG C63 sedan. This time around, the coupe version was spotted testing out in Southern Europe. Undergoing warm weather testing, the relative lack of covers hint that this is a minor revamp.
The changes made to the refreshed C63 Coupe appear to be limited to the front and rear. Covers on the front bumper suggest that the air dam and air intake has been given a new look. Also covered is the grill, hiding a new design likely to follow the look of the AMG GT. It is interesting to note that this particular test car is sporting halogen headlights, unlikely to become part of the model range.
As for the rear, it appears that only the lower section gets a update. It is possible that Mercedes-AMG redesigned the bottom of the rear bumper. At the moment, the current C63 Coupe comes with an integrated diffuser and a pair of air outlets on each corner. Also seen is a taller trunk lip spoiler and new LED graphics for the tail lights. The rest of the exterior carries over unchanged.
While there are no interior photos as of now, our spies tell us there it too will come with updates and upgrades. There are likely to be a new touchscreen, infotainment menus, as well as a new touchpad which serves as controls for the said infotainment system. Also expected is a revamped instrument cluster, likely to get the look of the current E-Class.
The engine meanwhile will possibly be carried over from the current model. Like the sedan, the C63 Coupe is powered by a 4.0-liter Biturbo V8, which is then mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. As for a power upgrade, it has yet to be determined. Current specs of the biturbo V8 are at 471 PS and 650 Nm for the standard C63 and 510 PS and 700 Nm in the C63 S.
