As mentioned, there are two variants for the power output of the car: the higher is of the C63 S Cabriolet, which by the way is capapble of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.1 seconds. On the other hand, its not so powerful sibling does this within an extra 0.1 second. The top speed for both is 250 km/h and it is electronically limited. If one opts for the AMG Driver's Package, the top speed rises to 280 km/h.
Another interesting fact is that the engine also powers the C63 Saloon, Estate and Coupe as well as the GT sports car. Its characteristic feature is that the two turbochargers are positioned not on the outside of the cylinder banks, but between them in the "V", or as the experts call it: the "hot inside V". This is of course not meaningless, but offers many benefits for the engine like its compact construction, optimal response and low exhaust gas emissions.
Mercedes-AMG C63 Cabriolet Models has just made its New York International Auto Show debut. It will have a market launch in August this year.
