Mercedes-Benz is sharpening the profile of the C-Class: with the new coupé "Sport" models, developed together with AMG, and the new "AMG Sports Package PLUS", there has never been a wider choice of sporty versions. These models are now available. The "AMG Sports Package PLUS" can be combined with all sedan and estate variants, whilst the "Sport" is available certain coupe models.

"The C 250 model is by far the most popular model we currently have on sale today in Australia," Horst von Sanden, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars, Australia/Pacific said recently. "Now we offer an option to customers who want a little bit more Sport from a C 250.”

The name says it all – the new Coupé models C 250 Sport and C 250 CDI Sport are more dynamic, as the performance specialists at AMG were heavily involved in their development. In addition to the visually enhanced AMG Sports Package PLUS, both models have technical features which further increase driving enjoyment. Cornering and handling characteristics are more dynamic thanks to an AMG sports suspension, more direct speed-sensitive sports steering, a sports exhaust system and a more sporty transmission configuration in S and M mode. The matt paint finish "designo magno platinum" is exclusively available for the Sport models.

The AMG Sports Package PLUS lends an even sportier aura to the Saloon and Estate. As additions to the AMG Sports Package it includes 18-inch AMG 7-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels, an AMG spoiler lip and sports seats in black ARTICO man-made fake-leather/DINAMICA. Red seat belts and red contrasting stitching on the steering wheel, seats, door centre panels, door armrests, centre console and shift lever gaiter add further sporty touches.
