Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Drifting Video

Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé goes drifting with Tobias Moers

The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe certainly has all the makings of a seriously lairy car – take one svelte two-door C-Class body and replace the humdrum four/six-cylinder heart with a stonking biturbo V8 that sends all its prodigious power to the rear wheels.

But don’t take our word for it – let AMG CEO Tobias Moers show you by drifting the über sports coupé around the Ascari circuit in Spain in a new video, which you can watch above. Most German businessmen are as dour as they come, but not this one – the “sportiest C-Class of all time” is driven extremely sideways by Moers, the V8 emitting some scintillating growls in the process.

As mentioned, power comes from a 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 that delivers 476 PS from 5,500 to 6,250 rpm and 650 Nm from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm. Those who find those output numbers piffling can opt for the C 63 S, which boosts power up to 510 PS and torque to a heady 700 Nm. Mated to an AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed automatic gearbox, it sprints to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

To keep all that power on the road, the C 63 Coupe comes with completely revised suspension with AMG Ride Control adaptive dampers, wider tyres, broader front and rear track and a standard-fit mechanical limited-slip differential (electronic on the S), all necessitating the broader haunches that give the car its menacing look and presence.
