If you’re in the market for an ultra-fast Mercedes coupe, this 2013 C63 AMG Black Series has plenty of power and road presence to catch your attention.
Because the Black Series was such a well-liked car, Mercedes had to up production from the initial 650 units they had intended to 800.
A 517 PS (510 BHP) 6.2-liter V8, a seven-speed Speedshift MCT automatic, front and rear independent adjustable suspension, a 7,200 rpm redline and 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds made this 186 mph (300 km/h) car one of the quickest on the road only a few years back.
This particular example, set to be auctioned off by RM Auctions in London, is expected to fetch anywhere between £115,000 and £150,000. It’s wearing Fire Opal Red with a black racing stripe, whereas the interior is finished in a black leather and Alcantara combo. Options include a reversing camera, 19″ wheels, AMG exterior carbon trim pack, heated front seats, rear seats and piano lacquer interior trim.
Its slightly more aggressive appearance comes courtesy of the matte black finish chosen for those parts that were normally chromed. And the best part? It’s got just 2,533 km (1,573 miles) on the clock.
