The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is scheduled to debut early next year and will be followed by a C 63 AMG Black Series Coupe, a successor to the CLK Black Series, first launched in 2007.

Powering the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Black Series Coupe will be the current C 63 AMG sedans 6.2L V8. Output will be increased from 451-hp to 513-hp allowing it to go from 0-62 mph in four seconds. Transferring all that power to the wheels will be a 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox with steering wheel mounted paddleshifters.
