New Mercedes-AMG C 63 prices announced

The fastest Mercedes C-Class models will start at £59,795

Mercedes has announced pricing of its super fast version of the Mercedes C-Class – the Mercedes-AMG C 63 – after showing the car off at the Paris Motor Show. The saloon version of the C 63 will start at £59,795 with the more powerful C 63 S estate topping the range at £67,745. The C 63 uses a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine to effortlessly power its way from 0-62mph in as little as 4.0 seconds.

The updated name follows in the footsteps Merc's new Porsche 911 rival – the Mercedes-AMG GT – which also went on show in Paris. Mercedes confirmed other cars in the range will follow suit, although when this will happen has not been confirmed.

As with the larger Mercedes E 63 AMG, the new AMG C 63 will be available with two different power outputs, as well as a choice of saloon and estate bodies. The ‘basic’ 469bhp version will do 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds (4.2 seconds for the estate), while the more powerful 503bhp C 63 S model knocks that down to just 4.0 and 4.1 seconds respectively.

In an attempt to make it even more fun to drive than before, the AMG C 63 features a different steering set-up, a wider profile for more grip, and upgraded suspension. There are bigger front and rear brakes, ensuring the car stops just as fast as it goes.

Fuel economy and emissions are impressive for a car of this performance. Both saloon models will return 34.5mpg, while the slightly heavier estate will return 33.6mpg. CO2 emissions range from 192g/km to 196g/km, meaning all cars cost £265 per year in road tax.

Distinctive styling means the AMG C 63 should be easy to spot next to a standard C-Class. It features bigger alloy wheels, specific AMG badging and new, sportier bumpers. At the back, you’ll find quad exhaust pipes and a subtle bootlid spoiler.

Inside, there’s a set of sporty bucket seats, as well as an AMG steering wheel and various AMG badges dotted around the cabin. Several interior finishes can be selected, including carbon or silver, with an IWC clock set into the dashboard.

The prices announced today reflect a slight rise on the outgoing car’s £57,275 price tag. You’ll pay around £1,200 more for the estate and there is a jump of about £7,000 for the more powerful S model. Prices in full:

Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Edition 1

Mercedes will offer a special 'Edition 1' version of the C 63 S to mark the launch of the new car. It will cost £73,500 as a saloon or £74,700 as an estate and feature exclusive finishes and equipment, including unique 19-inch alloy wheels with red detailing and other red highlights on the grille and wing mirrors.

The theme continues on the inside of the car, with quilted black Nappa leather getting red stitching, which is also used on the steering wheel, door panels and dashboard. Edition 1 models will come with a 13-speaker Burmester surround sound system as standard, as well as a panoramic sunroof and keyless start and entry.

All C 63 models will be available to order from next month, with first deliveries scheduled for spring of next year.
