When we first saw the new
C63 AMG Coupe Black Series
last month, Mercedes-Benz mentioned that the car would be available with two new AMG packages (Track and Aerodynamics) but failed to give any substantial details.
Today we have spy shots of an AMG prototype fitted with both packages, revealing an almost race car like look for the luxury two-door.
The AMG Track Package adds special Dunlop tires developed exclusively for this model. They measure in at 255/35 R 19 up front and 285/30 R 19 in the rear.
In addition to the new rubber, the kit also includes active cooling for the rear axle drive.
The AMG Aerodynamics Package, meanwhile, adds the assortment of aero aids you see here, including that oversized rear wing--all made from carbon fiber of course.
There’s also a functional front splitter, an adjustable blade on the rear spoiler, and the small winglets you can see on the front bumper, most of which have been added to reduce lift.
For now, AMG has not released any engine upgrades, but with a 6.2-liter V-8 spitting out 510 horsepower and 457 pound-feet it’s easy to see why.
