The new 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 is the successor to a lot of ridiculous rolling engine thunder and tire smoke, so the new one better be good enough to light your pants entirely aflame. And while it probably will be, we now know it’ll cost $63,900 for all of its 469 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.


Or, if you’re feeling particularly racy, you can pay Mercedes $8,000 more for the C63 AMG S, and snag 503 horsepower 516 pound-feet of torque. That’s a grand total of $71,900, for the mathematically challenged. Or, more realistically, a grand total of ALL OF THE MONEY IN THE WORLD, when you factor in the cost of tires that those 516 torques will probably constantly destroy.

Here is a list of other standard equipment, that comes along with the twin-turbo V8 and over 500 horsepower:

  • You know what, let me just include that twin-turbo V8 with over 500 horsepower one more time, it bears repeating
  • In case you’re a weirdo, who wants more than an engine slapped onto some wheels for your 70 grand, you also get a Burmester surround sound system, a seven-speed DCT transmission, a limited slip differential (mechanical in the “base” C63, electronic in the S)
  • Exhaust
  • Suspension
  • Other bits
  • Let’s be honest, it’s really about the twin-turbo V8 with over 500 horsepower

You can get carbon ceramic brakes, more exhaust, better seats, a better steering wheel, and a carbon fiber spoiler on the trunk as options.

But twin turbo V8 with over 500 horsepower.
