Lightbulb 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe proves one good tune deserves another

The expanse of model ranges from German automakers keeps expanding. With Mercedes-Benz, you know (with few exceptions) that when a new model debuts, it's only going to be a matter of time until the AMG version comes along. And with the new C-Class Coupe, it's come along today.

Destined to be unveiled at the upcoming New York Auto Show, you can look at the new C63 AMG Coupe as a C-Class Coupe with upgraded go-fast bits, or as the new 2012 C63 AMG sedan unburdened of a couple of doors. Either way, you're looking at Affalterbach's prized 6.2-liter V8 engine driving 451 horsepower (481 with the optional AMG Development pack) to the rear wheels via seven-gear Speedshift MCT gearbox for a 4.4-second sprint to sixty and an electronically-limited 155 mph top end, trimmed by a tenth and increased to 174 respectively in dev spec.

To go with the extra power, AMG has also stiffened the suspension, widened the tracks, sharpened the steering, plussed-up the rolling stock and beefed up the brakes. Tweaks to the interior and exterior let everyone know this is no mere boulevard cruiser, details of which you can read about in full in the press blast below the fold and view in the high-res image gallery below.
