Spy Shots: 2013 Mercedes C63 AMG with Track Package fires up the Nurburgring
Sometimes even better just isn’t enough. Take the recently unveiled Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series, for instance. Anyone would love to have this sleek and speedy Merc ready and willing to cruise down the streets in utmost style. Of course, then there are those people that feel a car like this should be ready for the track and not parked in the garage awaiting the next trip to the grocery store. For those people, we give you the C63 AMG Black Series with Track Package as it takes a trip around the Nurburgring trying to avoid our savvy spy photographers.
From the images provided, it is clear that the C63 AMG Black Series is loaded with track oriented goodies like the fixed rear wing, a functionally tuned front splitter made of genuine carbon fiber, and carbon fiber flics located on the front apron, and carbon fiber side skirts. We can only imagine that some lightweight parts have also been added to make it more track oriented. These features not only increase the lift at the front and rear axle, they also optimize the vehicle’s aerodynamic balance.
Previous reports have stated that the AMG Track Package will include sports tires, size 255/35 R 19 for the front and 285/30 R 19, developed exclusively for this model, active rear-axle transmission cooling, and a radiator located in the rear apron that allows the airflow to pass through it effectively.
As for the engine, we must sadly report that, as of right now, it remains unchanged. The 6.3 liter V8 engine will still deliver a total of 510 HP and a peak torque of 457 lbs-ft, allowing the vehicle a 0 to 60 mph sprint time of 4.2 seconds. It’s not weak performance by any stretch, but a little more power for the track would have been music to our ears.
Stay tuned as we bring more details on the Mercedes C63 AMG Track Package!
