    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    while the decsion to go for this car was solely based on a logical approach, I have to say that i am actualle VERY excited about it.

    i think it's the perfect 'sleeper'

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

     I approve 

    btw, how long do you think it'll be before you take delivery?


    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    market into is in july. my dealer forwarded my order to germany and is awaiting approval and build confirmation. hopefully delivery times wont be too long as at the moment i could use this car much more than anything else.

    and it would release me from my glk ! which i drive everyday now. it surely is a good car that i am going to keep but hell is it boring and uninspiring. will just pass it on to my girlfriend

    actually the glk is perfect for everyday. i dont care about it and that is good. drive it sweaty from sports, wet from watersports on-road, off-road through bumps and ditches.

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

     Looking good, the only thing I'd change in this car is making the wheels some kind of dark grey or gunmetal color. Are the black wheels the only option?


    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    actually i am going with normal amg 5 spoke alloy wheels

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    Have they revised the suspension on the update? One of the few things I liked more on my E63 over my old C63 is the suspension. The C63 was harder than a GT3! Maybe I am just too soft. Lol

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    as far as i know, the suspension on the facelifted model is totally reworked. supposedly it is a lot softer.

    furthermore i have chosen to stay with 18 inch wheels to have more tire to soften it. though i like the multi-spoke 19's more look-wise.

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    Oh, I think I should go test drive one when it comes here. I do miss my C63! Great choice btw intouch.

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    I also think this wheel looks better:

     


    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

     Will there be a E Class Coupe AMG?


    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    YES


    --

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    I would love to see what the E Klass coupe would look like with the flared wheel arches a la black series

     

     


    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    skazzy:

    I also think this wheel looks better:

     


    actually these are the wheels i ordered. 796 AMG 5 double spoke alloys.

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    Can I understand the E class coupe...doesn't it use the C class chassis? So really we have two C class coupe?

    No, it is based on the current E class saloon. The previous CLK was C class based.

    Are you sure? When I look at my car next to a coupe version, the coupe looks narrower. Also the interior looks narrower too. Could just be a visual trick because of the sportier shape of course.

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    It must be the styling. Mercedes switched from C class to E class underpinnings for this model.

    That is correct, as quote below by E Class Product Manager

    Speaking with Wolfgang Bremm, E-Class product manager, Automotive News has confirmed that the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is in fact based on the C-Class platform, not on the E-Class after which it is named. This is the very same C-Class platform officially called the W204. Renaming the car that replaced the two-door CLK as an E-Class is interesting to say the least, but it follows Merc's previous production of basing the W209 CLK on the W203 C-Class platform.

     

     


    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    The Automotive News quote ( allegedly from a senior M-B exec) conflicts with all other reviews and news about the E class coupe.

    It is not a C class (as the new C coupe is) but borrows heavily from the E class chassis. As Autocar quote: " it switches from a C-class platform to a modified version of the new E-class’s underpinnings."

    In conclusion it is neither a C class nor a 100% E class. But it leans much more heavily on the new E class.

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

     I tend to think that the E Class product manager is the most reliable source. Moreover, I too had read that the E Coupe is based on the C Class...

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    Most important, the chassis and underpinnings of the E class coupe are derived from the superior E class. The floorpan and some other elements could be C class.

    The C class coupe is just as a C class saloon with different body.

    What you are describing is technically impossible. The floorpan is an integral part of the chassis (which is not really a chassis nowadays). According to most sources, the E Cope is derived from the C Class chassis but with E Class styling. I am not being absolute but most facts hint towards such a conclusion.

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    One dimension has confirm for me that this is the C-class chassis. The wheelbase is identical to a C class sedan. I suspect the AMG version will use a variant of the 5.5 turbo engine to differentiate it more from the C63 coupe.

    Re: Mercedes C63 AMG

    c-class chassis for all i know.
