Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet review

Take the ‘normal’ car and supply it a big testosterone shot. quite a lot what the guys at AMG do to the Mercedes-Benz range of stock cars. Mercedes-AMG did now not waste any time in any respect to provide the brand new C-magnificence Cabriolet exactly that. So while we have been in Italy to power the new C-Cabrio, we also got our fingers at the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet. The AMG modify ego comes in three variants – the C63 S, C63 and the C43 Cabriolet. We drove the most effective as that is what we reckon will show up in India a few months down the line.

Our take a look at vehicle changed into wearing luxurious Selenite grey paint with a Cranberry pink fabric roof. We guarantee you, regardless of in which you take this car, you are certain to drop jaws and flip heads. The C63 S Cabrio has a muscular stance, an elegant face and plenty of carbon fibre to justify that AMG tag! however the actual reason for that tag comes from beneath the hood: four.0 litre, dual-faster V8 that unleashes 503 horses at full gallop from 5,500 rpm through to 6,250 rpm. It also churns out a mad 700 Nm of torque from as low as 1,750rpm all of the way thru to four,500rpm.

All that energy is transferred to the rear wheels through a 7-pace AMG MCT Speedshift transmission. It feels sinfully delightful. Mash the pedal and you’re beat back for your seat with a real ferocity. The soundtrack of the mighty V8 Biturbo engine has a thunderous exhaust word – in all likelihood loud enough to put the concern of God into atheists as nicely! The growth is accompanied through the necessary pops and crackles because the C63 S Cabriolet is being placed through its paces at the tarmac. It does 0-a hundred kmph in a trifling four.1 seconds from standstill, whilst the pinnacle velocity is an electronically confined 250 kmph (that can be specced to reach 280kmph as well).

The C63 S Cabriolet guidelines the size at 1,925 kgs which is type of heavy – particularly when compared to the BMW M4 Cabrio or maybe the tons tamer Audi S5. this is on the whole due to the fact the rear axles and the chassis have been stiffened to cope with the loss of structural integrity due to the material roof. but the suspension has been setup in a manner that extracts the pleasant out of the auto. Its first-rate and stiff, or even the minutest of irritants on the street can be felt on the guidance and clear out through to your backbone as well. but the plus side to this is the automobile handles sharply and eagerly holds the road through corners and twists. Of path, you could select from three one of a kind suspension setups consistent with your mood or needs: consolation, game and sport+.

the car we had had a bit of a dull indoors – with a grey and black coloration scheme with bits of silver – mainly stupid for this type of powerful and effective device. The valuable console gets a sprint of carbon fibre and is equipped with an IWC Schaffhausen time piece that looks very excessive-give up. The flat bottomed guidance wheel provides to the sporty enchantment of the auto. just like other C-elegance Cabriolet fashions, the C63 S additionally gets the AIRCAP (which basically prevent the airflow from intruding the cabin) and the AIRSCARF (for blowing hot air on to occupants’ neck to keep them from freezing in chilly conditions) structures, as general.

The respectable line is that Mercedes-Benz India will not be uploading the C63 S Cabriolet. however even as that may be disheartening for the AMG enthusiasts, we’ve got it on properly authority that it’s far simply now not inside the immediately pipeline. India will first get the C300 Cabriolet with the aid of early 2017 and the AMG avatar is simplest probable to observe that during about 6 months thereafter. count on it to be priced alternatively steeply, however then it’s an AMG, and it does have that monster four.0-litre V8 and the open-top!
