AMG has tweaked its C63 derivatives as Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class range reaches the halfway mark in its lifecycle.

IT’S the perfect setting: a sequence of winding country roads, glistening blue skies and the characterful sound of a rumbling twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 from the facelifted Mercedes AMG C63 S Coupé. Thankfully, the roads are quiet and free of traffic, which means there’s enough space and time for me to stretch the legs of the latest model to emerge from the hallowed halls of Affalterbach.

Along with the rest of the C-Class range, the C63 performance derivatives have also received a mid-cycle revision, with some small changes to both the exterior and mechanicals which make a fairly substantive difference to the vehicle’s looks and abilities, if this C63 S Coupé is any indication.

The most notable visual difference is the Panamericana grille first introduced on the current AMG GT and this, together with a revised front bumper and a slightly remodelled rear with larger exhaust tailpipes, gives this C63 S Coupé a more muscular presence. The LED head- and tail lamps have also been remodelled, although you’d have to be something of an AMG spotter to notice the difference.
