This past July, Mercedes-Benz raised the curtain on their fourth Black Series model - the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe. That's nearly five months Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury has been wondering: Will they trick out the C63 AMG sedan with the same fixings?
While Mercedes-Benz has not yet officially confirmed the high-potency variant, recent spy shots document the sleek four-door cavorting around Nurburgring. And, reports suggest that the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series sedan touts the same 510-hp 6.2-liter V8 engine found in the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe. That represents a gain of 59-hp more than the 2012 standard C63 AMG sedan.
Word on the street has it that the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Sedan caught flirting with the Nurburgring track features the same engine upgrade and transmission as the Black Series Coupe slated to arrive in the U.S., March 2012. For enthusiasts who maybe missed the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe announcement, this translates to a 510-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine and AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed automatic transmission.
Together the V8 and four-mode, seven-speed tranny give the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe a 4.0-secod zero-to-60-mph acceleration time. The engine, compared to that offered in the current 2012 C63 AMG sedan, promises an extra 59 ponies of unbridled power. Among the other features the Mercedes-Benz C63 Black Series sedan is expected to share with its confirmed Coupe counterpart are hyper-reactive brakes, a bigger oil cooler, and significantly enhanced suspension.
Of course, Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury will let you know if/when the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series sedan heads to production, as soon as the automaker unbuttons their tightly sealed lips.
