If you want a car packing some chrome and speed then one of the obvious choices would be the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. Known for its power-packing 6.2L V8 engine producing about 451hp and 443 lb.-ft. of torque, this back-breaker of a machine is no wimp out on the road, but the future Black Series will turn out even more than that.

The Mercedes C-Class AMG Black Edition has already been spotted from the back, but this rendering makes the C63 AMG do an about-face. From this angle we can see the exaggerated wheelarches, carbon fiber vents, deep front splitter, and multi-spoke alloy wheels. Not shown in this photo is the rumored rear diffuser and small bootlip spoiler.

Rumors suggest that this speedier version will feature a 6.3L V8 engine producing about 513hp. The engine will be mated to AMG’s new SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC transmission that offers three different modes: "S" (Sport), " C" (Comfort), and "M" (Manual). Gearshifts in Sport mode are around 30 percent faster than in Comfort, and no less than around 50 percent faster in Manual mode, according to Mercedes.

The Black Division has already brought us tremendous machines in the SL, CLK, and theSLK AMG Black, but this Black Series Edition will look the BMW M3 and the Audi RS4 straight in the face. Bring it on, boys. Bring it on.

I think the AMG is somewhat aware in the figure of the Brabus! Does the black series is not AMG?

AMG gone hp crazy don’t they always though! I have a C55 the 5.4L is just insane, paired with Turbo’s well hope the turbo lag wont be there, this car will be most likely a killer for most cars on the road! AMG keeps raising the bar constantly, let’s see who can keep up.

If any of you have heard the new 5.5 bi turbo grow there is nothing to be missed from the older 6.3L. Plus the sound of the turbo spooling up at startup, plus the way it pushes you into the seat makes this new engine my new favorite. More so than the V12 even. I cannot wait to see.

Much better then the S4, and will stay out of the shop more often then the Audi’s frequent visits. However, unless 4 doors is a must I would prefer a Mustang GT which manages the same performance numbers for tons less cash.

I’m still hoping to see the rumored C63 AMG Black Series. know there have been spy photos of such a vehicle posted here with widened wheel flares. Maybe that will offer 500 plus horsepower with the newer twin turbo V8 powerplant.

You want handling buy an M3.. you want an animal of a car with a stupid amount of power then get the AMG 63/Black smiley I want this so bad.

Now this is my kind of car. Looks fantastic already with just a bit of body work. I got to drive the current C AMG recently and it was great fun. I would absolutely love this parked in my garage.

agree on you.. it looks great and classy. well design for sports and as a luxury car. but I love it when it comes into black.

why should they render this kind of car? it looks great and aggressive with those design. I love it and I like it more than the Jaguar X type.

Is this a rendering or a photo, because it looks like a photo to me!

Finally they improved the draft that was the original C class.

dang this car is quite so simple but yet it still has the killer looks of a sports car. but I’m pretty sure it needs front fin and lip rear diffuser to deal with those 630 Horses under the hood.

cool, lovely looking car, it looks more aggressive and sporty than the previous C-Class. also the wheels are very Unique for sure many are craving to have this in their garage... c-class is one of the best and practical car of benz, very comfortable to ride and the performance is beyond compare.
