Special Editions. Sometimes they’re really special, whilst at other times it’s just a way of freshening up a familiar model which has been on sale for a few years. Few would question its effectiveness when selling a few extra super-minis or roadsters during the summer months, but there’s been a growing tendency during the past 24 months to follow the special edition route with performance cars.
The most powerful C-Class of all time is how Mercedes describe the new C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series, which was unveiled this morning on the eve of the German grand prix. Boasting a maximum output of 510 bhp and peak torque of 620 Nm, the AMG 6.2-litre V8 engine accelerates the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series from zero to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds.
Images of Mercedes’ forthcoming C63 AMG Black Series have been leaked by the French edition of evo magazine, after a private test at Le Castellet in the South of France.
