Our spy photographers have managed to snap the facelifted Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate in the midst of testing.

We first saw pictures of the updated C63 in sedan form back in May and for the most part, this Estate variant appears to be hiding the same tweaked parts under black and white camoflage.

Up front, it is apparent that Mercedes-AMG will update the design of the performance car’s bumper, potentially with reshaped air intakes¬. Additionally, tweaked LED headlights will be found on the finished production model. As with recent Mercedes-Benz models, to most obvious difference between the new car and the outgoing model will be the brand’s Panamericana front grille featuring vertical slats and first found on the AMG GT R.

Exterior modifications will be completed with an overhauled rear bumper.

Moving to the cabin, customers can expect to be welcomed with a number of changes, potentially including a new steering wheel and touch-sensitive buttons like on the E63.

Power for both the C63 and C63 S models will continue to come from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine. It is possible that some minor tweaks to the powertrain will be made to increase grunt from the 476 PS and 510 PS currently on offer.

Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Damaged After Wheel Thieves Leave It On Plastic Crates 13

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in AMG, mercedes, Mercedes AMG, Mercedes C63 AMG, Offbeat News on 11 13th, 2017


As if seeing your car without wheels wasn’t bad enough, the people responsible for this theft used plastic crates for support, which naturally, crumbled under the weight, damaging the side sills and possibly other components like the brake discs, on this C63.

The theft took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, and according to the owner’s friend who sent us the tip, the wheels probably exited the country via the German border, heading towards Eastern Europe.

We’ve also learned that a new set of wheels is on its way and that the car was insured, so this C63 Coupe should be good soon, which is all you can hope for after such an incident.

Grand thefts involving large/expensive alloy wheels are a common practice in Europe, as well as on other continents. Also, in some cases they can be removed without damaging the side sills, so some car owners are definitely “luckier” than others.

The reader who sent us these images also mentioned that the car is going to “sleep indoors” from now on, which is perfectly understandable. Better safe than sorry.

H/T to Christian!

Is 700HP Enough? Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate Turned Into A Beast By Vath 6

It’s quite common nowadays to see super estates, such as the Mercedes-AMG C63, become faster than previous-generation supercars.

In this case, Vath has turned the German-made wagon into a wild animal, one that needs just 3.3sec to sprint from naught to 100km/h (62mph), before maxing out at 340km/h (211mph).

Its performance makes it 0.1sec faster than a stock Ferrari 458 Italia, and it comes courtesy of a lot of work put into the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which is now good for 700PS (690hp) and 900Nm (664lb-ft) of torque. Massaging the lump to produce this much power cost €12,800 ($14,870), and it included tuning the unit’s electronic and turbochargers, and adding a new oil cooler for the engine and transmission.

Vath claims that the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate’s sound is even more distinguished thanks to a new valve exhaust system. It costs €3,440 ($3,996), and it allows the driver to choose between “a meaty bubbling V8 bi-turbo, or a regular V8”, at the touch of a button.

Among other upgrades received by the estate are optimized brakes for €890 ($1,034), a suspension kit that can lower the ride height between 20mm to 40mm (0.8-1.6in) for €690 ($802), and 8.5×20-inch front and 10×20-inch rear wheels, wrapped in Continental tires for another €2,880 ($3,345), to which €250 ($290) are added for the attachment kit of the rims.

The tuner also fitted the AMG C63 with a carbon package exterior upgrade kit, for €1,980 ($2,300), which includes new front spoiler and rear diffuser, while the interior has received a new speedometer that goes up to 360km/h (224mph), for another €1,980 ($2,300), and a set of floor mats in black velour, with the Vath logo, that cost €190 ($220).
