Snapped during a test event at Circuit Paul Ricard

After reporting the latest details yesterday, first photos of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe have surfaced.

Snapped during a test event at Circuit Paul Ricard in one of the garages, the exclusive AMG Coupe is not as hardcore as the previous generation CLK 63 AMG Black Series. Not only is it the first Black Series to have four seats, but it has been configured more towards everyday street use. Only 20 kg (44 lbs) have been shed from the vehicle's curb weight.

In line with yesterday's report, the Black Series Coupe with its 6.2-liter V8 produces 517 PS (380 kW / 510 bhp) which is 30 PS (22 kW / 30 bhp) more than the C63 AMG with the Performance Package. Shifting is performed by the seven-speed 'Speedshift' MCT automatic with a limited slip differential. Torque is rated at 640 Nm (472 lb-ft). Despite no official specs released, 0 to 100 km/h should take about 4 seconds.

Interestingly, the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe will not be limited in production and the price should come in around €100,000 in Germany, much less than the BMW M3 GTS at €137,000.

What a BEAST!! And relatively affordable, certainly compared to it's predecessor, or indeed the competition.

I'm looking at the interior shots, and I'm pretty sure there are no rear seats.

they are probably an option to have rear seats or to have them removed. For ppl that want to save a few lbs.

Despite being on favour of automatic gearboxes in cars like m3 ,rs5 and c63amg . It must be delightful to shift a proper manual gear box on this throaty v8 !

Let's hope that the power will be distributed to the road not just to the wheels.

I simply don't understand the logic behind these exaggerated models. They are neither a race car nor a road car. It seems even they don't know what they are.

Why are the rear wheels so small, especially with all that power to put on the road??

They aren't its an illusion because of those fat tyres employed to handle the torque and to aid ride comfort.
