At the end of last year, the AM Community was briefly turned upside down, because then Mercedes’ sporting department pulled the curtain on its new C 63 S. It received an obligatory ‘E Performance’ appendix, and that was already a first hint at what was to come. lay under the hood. There, the iconic 4.0-liter biturbo V8 had to make way for a block with half the cylinders and half the content, while a plug-in hybrid powertrain took care of the rest of the power.

Exclusive F1 looks
Stuttgart has put a price tag on the new C 63 SE Performance, and that is almost as impressive as the name is long. We exaggerate a bit, but at at least 117,007 euros, the new top-C is of course anything but cheap. Fortunately, you also get a lot of value for that money, because in addition to the supreme hybrid powertrain, Mercedes-AMG also mounts 20-inch rims, a sports steering wheel with a button for the eight driving modes, a steering rear axle and variable four-wheel drive that makes all horses happy in drift mode. can send back. If you prefer all that in the form of a family-friendly break, you pay 118,459 euros for a C 63 SE Performance Estate.
During the first year of production, Mercedes will also offer an F1 Edition of this new C-AMG, which combines almost complete equipment with a series of Formula 1-inspired decorations. For example, count on red edges around the rims and bumpers, and the seams that hold the black nappa leather together are also red for the occasion. Furthermore, the F1 Edition gets an alpine gray paint from the Manufaktur catalog, while the otherwise optional aerodynamics package adds external splendor such as a subtle spoiler and a larger front splitter. For that special edition you need 17,612 euros more, but feel free to put together your own copy from next week and let us know where you end up. Then the Mercedes-AMG C 63 SE Performance will appear in the configurator.
