Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series Walk-Around

The C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is the Frankestein version of an already Frankenstein-like car. Launched back in 2011, it has already had its fair share of raving reviews from pretty much all major automotive publications, but this is probably the first time that one of those major media outlets got a chance to drive the hardcore German coupe and only release a walk-around video of the car.

We don't know if the video below is only a preview video from Car and Driver or if it's the only bit of information about their Black Series test drive, considering they have already driven the car at launch.

Either way, the Black Series C-Coupe is surely something to look at, whether it's racing down some circuit hairpins or simply resting its engine in a parking lot.

In case you weren't born yesterday or just didn't have the curiosity to check the car's specs until now, we should remind you that, besides the SLS AMG, this car has the second most racing-like engine in the whole AMG line-up.

We are talking about a handcrafted, normally aspirated M156 V8 engine with forged pistons and connecting rods, a different ECU unit and air intake, resulting in a total output of 517 hp and 630 Nm (465 lb ft).

Along with the other modifications for the suspension, a limited slip differential and a bit of weight savings, it all translates into a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds and a limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). You could maybe recite those specs while watching the walk-around video below to make it more exciting.
