Mercedes Benz has offered up some details on its C63 AMG that I mentioned briefly a while back. The 2012 C63 AMG Coupe is a very impressive car with up to 481HP available. The car will hit showrooms this September. The engine is a 6.3L V8.

Torque production is 443 lb-ft and it can do 0-60 in 4.4 seconds. With a top speed of 155mph the car can move. MB uses a MCT 7-speed sports transmission and a new power steering pump that helps to improve fuel economy. To get the V8 at the 481hp mark requires the AMG development package that also brings a carbon fiber trunk lid spoiler and premium leather with a top speed increasing to 174mph. The special package also has forged pistons and connecting rods and a lightweight crank.

The 7-speed tranny has a special controlled Efficiency Mode to help make the high-powered car more economical. It also has an M mode for faster shifts. Other transmission modes include S and S+ each with their own mix of economy and performance. In S+ and M mode, the gear changed with paddle shifters are done in only 100ms. The car also gets a special Race Start function that helps with fast take offs.

The interior of the car comes in several different color options with the sweet red being my favorite. It has a 3D TFT color display inside the speedometer that shows the AMG logo. I'm not sure if MB means 3D like a geek thinks of 3D or not. The car has nine standard airbags, and lots of safety tech inside like the Attention Assist drowsiness detector and Blind Spot assist.

Tech inside the car includes a phone book transfer function from your phone, Sirius weather, larger screens, and a USB interface. The car has Bluetooth connectivity as well. The navigation system also claims 3D use. I am going to assume MB is talking 3D graphics not real 3D like the Nintendo 3DS. GPS nav systems have used 3D graphics for many years now. Pricing is still unannounced.
