    The first rumors of the German automaker working on a C63 AMG Black Series model began surfacing in late 2010, followed by a set of spyshots that didn’t give very much away some two months ago.
    The car was supposed to make its debut later this year, but this morning we got the chance to grab the first photos of the car, courtesy of SpeedFans.fr.

    Automakers have been forced to show their latest creations earlier than scheduled due to leaked photos, so the same thing happening with this car comes as no surprise to us.

    The adjacent images showing the new C63 AMG Black Series Coupe were taken during a test event at Circuit Paul Ricard in one of the garages there, despite the fact that Mercedes had no intention of making the car a supermodel for the cameras yet.

    It's rumored that it will be powered by a more powerful version of the 6.2-liter V8 unit in the C63,with around 517 horsepower and 472 lb.ft. (640 Nm) of torque.

    As we saw happening with previous Black Series models - CLK and SL - the C63 Black aggressive styling features and it is also the first Black Series to offer four functional rear seats. The car seen here is painted red, but as with previous cars, the color range could be limited to basics like black, white, and silver, and red coming as the only flashy option.

    The new C63 AMG Black Series is expected to go on sale this November in Germany for under EUR100,000, and from 2012 in the rest of world. However, we’ll have to wait for the official unveiling of the car to find out more technical and logistics details.

  2. wow four functional rear seats

    this vs renault espace f1
  3. Pretty sure that's red
  4. Hot as hell...
  5. That is fcuking gorgeous!! Love the wheels!
  6. WTF for the rear seats. If it's to be more "track-focused", why add more weight with rear seats, seatbels, etc?

    Other than that, I love it.
  7. love the hood ... looks great , want to see it in black
  8. I couldn't find the bit where it's said to be more track-focused, though.
  10. Sounds like you should be looking at a Caterham/Radical.
  11. sounds like an idiot
  12. it's not a track car.
  13. Pretty hot, but not as classy as the CLK AMG
  14. Why do you even bother posting in new car threads?
  15. Oh cool. A Honda Accord with fender flairs and some holes in its hood...
  16. You never struck me as someone suffering from mental retardation until you made this post...
  17. where the hell have you been
  20. Did AMG just owned rabbit?
  21. I never said it was. I said it was to be "more track focused".

    And BTW "The adjacent images showing the new C63 AMG Black Series Coupe were taken during a test event at Circuit Paul Ricard"

    So, for you Paul Ricard is what, a highway...?
