“For us, the sales start of the Mercedes-AMG GT and C 63 is the start of a new era which is also highlighted by the new nomenclature. In this way we are positioning Mercedes-AMG even more aggressively than before as a dynamic sports car brand,” says Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “When sales start, both models will already be available as particularly dynamic S-models. I am quite certain of this: the driving dynamics, agility and sportiness will thrill our AMG customers. With these twohigh-performance models we are further reinforcing our brand claim of “Driving Performance”.

The new AMG GT: driving performance for sports car enthusiasts

The first Mercedes was a racing car and its most recent successor carries this heritage forward: with the new Mercedes-AMG GT, the Mercedes-AMG sports car brand is moving into a new, top-class sports car segment for the company. The GT is the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG. Its front mid-engine concept with transaxle and the intelligent aluminium lightweight construction form the basis for a highly dynamic driving experience. Its likewise newly developed AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine underscores the hallmark AMG driving performance. The first sports car engine with internally mounted turbochargers (“hot inside V”) and dry sump lubrication is configured in two output ratings: as the GT rated at 340 kW (462 hp) and the GT S at 375 kW (510 hp). The new GT combines driving dynamics and first-class racetrack performance with superb everyday practicality and efficiency that sets new standards in the segment.

With a power-to-weight ratio of 3.08 kilograms per hp, the Mercedes-AMG GT S self-confidently lines up alongside the very best in its segment. Top-class figures such as 3.8 seconds from zero to 100 km/h and a maximum speed of 310 km/h promise real racetrack performance. The GT also demonstrates that economy and high-performance need not be mutually exclusive with its fuel consumption of 9.3 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined).

Powerful high-performance athletes: Mercedes-AMG C 63 and C 63 S

Sheer fascination and impressive dynamics: the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 sets new standards. An unrivalled driving experience is guaranteed by the high-tech power unit, hallmark AMG handling dynamics and maximum individuality in the choice of features.

“Naturally the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 will again be powered by an 8-cylinder engine. Our 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine impresses with its fulminating power delivery and highly emotional sound. At the same time we are reasserting our leadership when it comes to the central aspect of efficiency. No other high-performance V8 is more economical than the new C 63”, says Christian Enderle, Head of Engine and Powertrain Development at Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

The engine of the C 63 is closely related to the power unit that gives the Mercedes-AMG GT its breathtaking performance. The output ranges from 350 kW (476 hp) for the C 63 to 375 kW (510 hp) for the C 63 S. With an unrivalled fuel consumption of only 8.2 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined), the C 63 Saloon is the most economical eight-cylinder car in the high-performance segment. The 3-stage AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers, the mechanical rear axle locking differential and the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes are part of the extensive standard equipment. The C 63 S boasts even more technical highlights. The extended standard equipment of the top model includes a high-performance composite braking system, an electronic rear axle locking differential and dynamic engine mounts.

Dynamism plus long-distance comfort: the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 as a sports saloon and charismatic high-performance estate convinces with its unrivalled engine data coupled with very low fuel consumption, extraordinary linear and lateral dynamics and a high level of everyday practicality. The interior and exterior design is also more distinctive than ever before.

The V8 top model in the C-Class is available in four variants: the Saloon and Estate are available as the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S and C 63. The C 63 S is configured for even more dynamic performance.
