Mercedes-Benz C63 Touring Car - Real Racing 3 EURO Track Master Exhibition All Race Completed
Mercedes-Benz has added an AMG model, the C 63 AMG, to the W205 C-Class for 2015. The power unit of note is a new V8 twin-turbo derived from the "Mercedes AMG GT". The top model delivers maximum output of 510ps (375kW)/5,500-6,250rpm and maximum torque of 700Nm/1,750-4,500rpm, which are on par with the AMG GT. In other words, this is the birth of the most powerful "C-Class" in history. The new "C 63" is equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine,
which is the same as that used in the "Mercedes AMG GT," instead of the NA 6.2-liter V8 used in the previous generation model. The C 63 delivers maximum output of 476ps (350kW) at 5,500-6,250rpm and maximum torque of 650Nm/1,750-4,500rpm, while the more powerful C 63 S delivers 510ps (375kW) at 5,500-6,250rpm and 700Nm/1,750-4,500rpm, The C 63 S has specifications on par with the AMG GT. Although the displacement is more than 2 liters smaller than the previous model, the maximum output of even the base model AMG C 63 has increased by 19ps (compared to the 2013 C 63 AMG), and the AMG C 63 S, which is a high-performance version of the W204, has the same maximum output as the final special edition of the W204 The AMG C 63 S, the high-performance version, has a 3 hp (2 kW) advantage over the W204's final special edition, the C 63 Edition 507. Even with the twin-turbocharged engine, this output from a displacement of only 4.0 liters is nothing short of spectacular. The E 63 AMG, which is based on the E-Class, has already been downsized to a twin-turbo 5.5-liter displacement,
but this is a more advanced version of that downsizing. We will report on this power unit, called the M177, in more detail later, but before that, there is one topic that deserves attention. The name of the car. Until now, all AMG models, with the exception of the flagship SLS AMG, have had a rule of adding a displacement number corresponding to the engine output to the base model name, and then the name "AMG" is added.
For example, the E 63 AMG, which was released earlier, and the W204-based C 63 AMG, which is the predecessor of the E 63 AMG, are examples of this rule. However, the W205-based AMG announced this time is different. Its official name is the "Mercedes AMG C 63.
You may have noticed that the name of the car, which should have been "Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG" in the past, has been fundamentally changed, with "AMG" replacing "Mercedes-Benz" in its place. This new rule of naming is the same for the Mercedes AMG GT, which was introduced earlier. What does the name change mean? There are probably two answers. The first is that Mercedes will clearly divide its regular lineup into "Mercedes-Benz" and the high-performance version into "AMG" in order to promote a brand plan with two major categories in the future.
This does not mean that the high-performance models of Mercedes-Benz will be AMG, but rather that Mercedes will be divided into two lineups with distinctly different characters, "Mercedes-Benz" and "AMG. Although they may seem similar, the meaning and significance of this change is very different from the past. The other strategy is to place "AMG" closer to Mercedes while maintaining a certain degree of independence and specialness of AMG. Simply put, it is to incorporate AMG. A clear example of this has already surfaced with the Mercedes AMG GT. The design of the Mercedes AMG GT was supervised by Gordon Wagner, Mercedes' chief designer.
Therefore, the AMG GT is closer to the latest Mercedes design than the original SLS AMG, and it uses the Mercedes design language as appropriate. At the AMG GT presentation held last month in the US, it was announced during the presentation that "AMG's research and development is now fully integrated with Mercedes-Benz. The integration of R&D is probably essential in order to reduce development costs and speed up the process. I have already said that the "AMG C 63" is the second model of the "Mercedes AMG" lineup, which includes the recently announced "Mercedes AMG GT," a new-generation sports coupe that stands at the top of the Mercedes lineup (not the top of Mercedes-Benz, as I said before). The AMG C 63 is also visible in the AMG C 63. The engine mounted in the front is called the M177, which is of course based on the M178 used in the Mercedes AMG GT. It shares many mechanisms with the AMG family, including two turbochargers in the V-bank, spray-guided combustion, gasoline piezoelectric direct injection, and other cutting-edge technologies to meet Euro 6 emission standards.
The engine also follows the AMG tradition of "one man, one engine" policy. One engineer is in charge of the complex work from assembly to completion. He is responsible for leading the engine to completion.
Both the AMG C 63 and AMG C 63 S have a total displacement of 3,982 cc. The AMG C 63 has maximum output of 476 hp (350 kW) at 5,500-6,250 rpm and maximum torque of 650 Nm at 1,750-4,500 rpm, while the AMG C 63 S has 510 hp (375 kW) at 5,500-6,250 rpm and 700 Nm at 1,750-4,500 rpm. This is 50 Nm (5.1 kgm) more than the maximum torque value of the AMG GT. This can be expected due to the fact that the AMG C63 S weighs 1,665 kg, more than 100 kg heavier than the AMG GT, which weighs only 1,540 kg. Although the top speed is limited to 250 km/h by the limiter, the AMG C 63 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and the AMG C 63 S in 4.0 seconds flat, according to the data. Beyond such performance, however, what is noteworthy is its fuel efficiency.
Compared to the engine mounted in the previous C 63 AMG, the M156, fuel consumption has been significantly reduced. Compared to the 6.3-liter V8 naturally aspirated engine, it consumes approximately 32% less fuel, achieving a fuel economy of 8.2 liters per 100 km (12.19 km per liter, NEDC values). This significant improvement in fuel economy is due to the so-called coasting mode, in which the clutch of the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sport transmission is released and the engine power is separated from the drive train when the accelerator pedal is released between 60 and 160 km/h. It should also be noted that the AMG C 63 and AMG C 63 are equipped with the AMG C 63 and AMG C 63.
The AMG C 63 and AMG C 63 S each feature a sport exhaust system with exhaust flaps. The exhaust flap is placed between the dual pipes and the main muffler and changes the exhaust note according to the AMG Dynamic Select Drive program. Another new option is the performance exhaust system. This is a sign that the sports car brand recognizes the importance of the exhaust sound. The performance exhaust system has an exhaust flap that can be switched between three modes, with the "Comfort Drive Program" offering a lower volume without sacrificing comfort and the "Sport +" and "Race +" exhaust systems offering a higher volume without sacrificing comfort.
and "Race" modes are said to bring an exciting V8 sound similar to that of a touring race machine. In addition to being set via the drive program, these sounds can be enjoyed individually at any time with the flip of a switch. In addition, the engine is mounted in the same way as in the AMG GT, with the AMG C 63 S adopting the dynamic mounting system as standard, which reduces vibrations from the engine and transmission units and contributes to comfort and sporty handling. While the usual soft engine mounts shut out noise and vibration to improve comfort, this dynamic mounting system improves steering response and direct handling can be felt. The reduction of drivetrain mass due to the downsized power unit also works well when cornering.
The transmission is the familiar AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sport transmission. The shift speeds can be changed in "Controlled Efficiency," "Sport," "Sport+," and "Race" modes. The "Controlled Efficiency," "Sport," "Sport+," and "Race" modes each have different shift speeds to provide the driving experience that best suits the situation.
The modes can be easily selected with a dial switch in the cockpit. In addition, a "Temporary M" mode (paddle shifters only) contributes to more dynamic driving. In the area of suspension, the AMG Ride Control sports suspension with three levels of damping force adjustment and the electronically controlled rear locking differential (mechanical on the AMG C 63) adopted for the AMG C 63 S are noteworthy features. The AMG Ride Control sports suspension balances agility, high cornering speeds, and comfort, and is made of lightweight aluminum.
The driver can vary the suspension characteristics in three steps between a sporting performance suitable for circuit driving and a comfort-oriented setting that matches the excellent long-distance driving experience. The electronically controlled rear locking differential reduces inner wheel slippage during cornering. As a result, the driver can accelerate quickly to exit a corner and maintain stability at high speeds. It also improves traction when starting from a standstill. In addition to providing more fine-tuned control than mechanical control, the system is networked with ESP, which has three levels: "ESP ON," "ESP OFF," and "Sport Handling Mode," and contributes to improved dynamics. These are supported by 245/40R18 front and 265/40R18 rear tires and 10-spoke design aluminum wheels in 8.5 x 18-inch front and 9.5 x 18-inch rear sizes with titanium gray coloring as standard.
The AMG C 63 S will feature 245/35R19 front and 265/35R19 rear size tires and 5-twin-spoke polished wheels in 8.5 x 19 (front) and 9.5 x 19. A high-performance ceramic composite brake system is an exclusive option for the AMG C 63 S. The design is completely different from the base model in one word: sporty.
The radiator grille with AMG's exclusive "twin blade" design, the front spoiler and front fenders with "A-wing" design for cooling air intake, the raised hood hood called "power dome," and the rear diffuser are all AMG originals. The raised hood hood called "power dome" and rear diffuser are AMG originals. All of these features are said to have been inspired by motorsports.
These features have increased the overall length of the body by 54mm compared to the base W205. While the sporty parts and looks of the W205 may be the main focus of attention, the body of the AMG-exclusive model has actually been strengthened from the white body stage. This means that the rigidity of the body has been considered and improved from the time of production in order to accommodate the car's 500+ horsepower performance. The interior, on the other hand, is made of first-class materials and meticulously assembled, giving it an unprecedented premium feel. As with the exterior, the AMG C 63 S and AMG C 63 have been given different materials and designs. Options include a dashboard in crystalline gray paint, black Italian Artico man-made leather, aluminum trim, and an IWC analog clock exclusive to the AMG.
The launch commemorative model is available in six body colors: Soft White, Degino Diamond White Bright, Iridium Silver Metallic, Palladium Silver Metallic, Obsidian Black Metallic, and AMG's exclusive paint finish Degino Iridium Silver Magno. The AMG C63 Edition 1 will also be available. Available in both sedan and station wagon models, this model is equipped with forged aluminum wheels (8.5 x 19-inch front, 9.5 x 19-inch rear) with red rims and black matte-colored cross spoke design, and 245/35R19 front and 265/35R19 rear tires. Night Package (A-wing, high-gloss trim black, high-gloss side mirror housings, black high-gloss window frames, etc.), black chrome twin end-pipe fairings, accents (red decals) on the radiator grille and wing mirrors, and a diamond pattern with red contrast stitching.
A number of special features include black nappa leather performance seats with diamond pattern and red contrast stitching, red Dezino seatbelts, and a Dinamica microfiber performance steering wheel.
