The C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series will go on sale in Australia during April 2012 from $245,000*. Thirty two examples will be imported to Australia. The 6.2 litre V8 develops 380 kW of power and 620 Nm of torque which will produce a 0-100 km/h time of 4.2 seconds.

The Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Mr Horst von Sanden has announced pricing for the most powerful C-Class ever the C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series. “In Australia we have offered two AMG Series models in the past and they were very quickly snapped up by AMG aficionados who recognised their unique character and scarcity. This is our third Black Series and it follows on from the success of the CLK 63 AMG Black Series and the SL 65 AMG Black Series.” (copyright image)

“The C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series will be limited to a total of 35 units for Australia and New Zealand. Obviously we wanted to get more but, the global customer demand for this latest Black Series (since it was revealed at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show) has seen our allocation limited to just 35 units. Many CLK 63 AMG Black Series owners see the C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series as the logical successor and we already have a double figure order bank,” said von Sanden.

The CLK 63 AMG Black Series went on sale in the first quarter of 2008 at a RRP of $299,000 - thirty two were imported to Australia. The 6.2 litre V8 developed 373 kW of power and 630 Nm of torque which produced a 0-100 km/h time of 4.3 seconds.

Each Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series vehicle bound for Australia will come with a unique personalised certificate of authenticity, along with a letter of provenance signed by Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific verifying the limited edition status of this vehicle.

The features listed below represent the different standard equipment to the C 63 AMG Coupe:

  • Performance increase to 380 kW/620 Nm
  • Unique Black Series body styling
  • AMG 19-inch 10 spoke alloy wheels
  • AMG sports seats (four) in ARTICO/DINAMICA with red topstitching (two bucket seats also available as a no cost option)
  • AMG rear-axle differential lock
