Mercedes-Benz to Take the C63 AMG Sedan to the Dark Side?

This past July, Mercedes-Benz raised the curtain on their fourth Black Series model - the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe.  That's nearly three months Mercedes-Benz of Chicago has been wondering: Will they trick out the C63 AMG sedan with the same fixings?

We still don't have a definitive answer from Mercedes-Benz who likes to keep us waiting with baited breath. However, recent spy shots nabbed in Germany indicate, that yes, we will likely see a C63 AMG Black Series Sedan, soon.

Word on the street has it that the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Sedan caught flirting with the Nurburgring track features the same engine upgrade and transmission as the Black Series Coupe slated to arrive in the U.S., March 2012. For enthusiasts who maybe missed the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe announcement, this translates to a 510-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine and AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed automatic transmission.

Together the V8 and four-mode, seven-speed tranny give the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe a 4.0-secod zero-to-60-mph acceleration time. The engine, compared to that offered in the current 2012 C63 AMG sedan, promises an extra 59 ponies of unbridled power. Among the other features the Mercedes-Benz C63 Black Series sedan is expected to share with its confirmed Coupe counterpart are hyper-reactive brakes, a bigger oil cooler, and significantly enhanced suspension.

Of course, nothing is set in stone yet. But, Mercedes-Benz of Chicago wouldn't be surprised if Mercedes-Benz gave the C63 AMG Black Series Sedan the green light in the next few months. Be sure to stay tuned for the final verdict, and more in-depth details, coming as soon as Mercedes-Benz unzips their lips.  And remember that in the mean time, you can always distract yourself from the anticipation by exploring our distinct array of new Mercedes-Benz models (including the new C-Class).
