    2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe to get 5.5-liter turbo

    Click here to enlarge



    The Mercedes-Benz C Class already has a hugely capable and entertaining performance model in the 451-horsepower C63. But a refreshed C Class is expected to bow at next month's Detroit Auto Show, and an exotic Black Series Coupe is expected to follow later in the year.

    Inside Line reports that a conversation with Mercedes spokespeople has revealed that the 6.2-liter in the C63 will not be tweaked for Black Series duty, opting instead for the company's twin-turbo 5.5-liter mill. That powertrain, as you may recall, already puts out 571 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque in the S63 AMG. That's 71 more ponies than the the CLK AMG Black Series and more twist than almost anything this side of a diesel-powered heavy-duty pickup truck. That should help justify the expected $100k-plus price tag of the rarest of AMG variants, while simultaneously making every BMW M3 owner a bit leery of a race with the Black Series coupe. Let's just hope it maintains the otherworldly bark of the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter, which is one of the C63's primary draws.

    Mercedes is kicking the $#@! out of BMW right now. What is BMW going to respond with exactly? Nothing, they have nothing.

    Why should I even bother with upgrading my car?

    The more I think about it the more ridiculous this is. BMW has nothing to fight back with, literally nothing.

    This thing is going to make everything in the lineup its $#@!.

    What is this going to do for the FI kit market? All the euro brands are going FI from factory.

    Just going to expand it and make tuning far more prevalent. FI from the factory with turbos is a tuners and enthusiasts dream. We are going to see all kinds of development in this sector, turbo upgrades, etc.

    With what BMW has been doing lately they have pissed me off beyond belief and pushed me toward Mercedes. Mercedes used to be the company that was soft, now they are the ones taking care of the enthusiast making cars that ANNIHILATE the competition while BMW sits around getting stoned, hugging trees, and talking about MPG.

    It won't two completely different motors and setups. Would likely be cheaper and more realistic to just trade the car in...

    Why, it's a 2008 MY car, the actual DTM cars are based off the C now anyway. Everything about the CLK BS is dated now.

    On a side note, it appears you have your own forum and are promoting it in your sig. Your sponsors include AMS and speedtuning (aka Evotech), and you are here why?

    Searching through your posts I think the reasoning is obvious.

    Fortunatley that photo is just a bad P'shop, because I think the real deal will look MUCH better. I also hope they don't limit the C63 Black to just the coupe, as I think the 4 door would look amazing.

    True test of how good this car will be in my opinion has as much do to with what route they go with transmission selection as it does with the 5.5TT. If they toss in a DoubleClutch in this car it might just be true winner....if they stick to a slushbox auto, i have no bid for it, regardless of how much Mulepower or Donkeythrust that engine makes. lol
