Spy Shots: Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Glimpsed

News I By John Beltz Snyder I November 09, 2010

Our spy guy just delivered these sneaky peeks of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series, sure to give other factory-tuned sedans quite a fright.

The Black Series’ 6.2-liter V-8 we’re all familiar with should produce around 510 horsepower, which will be directed to the rear wheels through a seven-speed Speedtronic transmission. Big ceramic brakes should help slow the car down but quick.

The black series also gets some visual touch-ups, including wider fenders, larger front spoiler and sportier rear diffuser.

According to our photographer, the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe will follow the Sedan.

Scroll down for our spy shooter’s notes.

Watch out BMW, watch out M3. The guys over at Mercedes AMG are busy developing a version of the C-Class that the Bavarians should be scared over. Meet the C63 Black Series.

Here is how you do: Take a C 63 AMG and send it to the gym to get a little work out. Let it build some muscles both under the hood with more power and on the outside with wider fenders. The hand built 6.2 liter V8 is expected to deliver some 510 horsepower via the AMG 7 speed speedtronic gearbox to the rear axle. Hopefully there will also be some less weight for the engine to carry around.

The wider fenders will not be the only visual changes, the frontspoiler will be larger and the rear diffuser will feature some Formula 1 looks.

Bigger brakes with ceramic discs will make sure the Black Series stops when and where the driver wants it.

These photos show the first testmule for the Black Series. When the test drivers noticed the photographer, they quickly covered it up and moved it into the garage where it was loaded into a truck some hours later.

The C 63 AMG Black Series saloon will be followed by a version of the C-Class Coupe later on for those who want the sportier Coupe look.
