You’d be hard pressed to find a criticism about the latest-generation Mercedes-AMG C 63 S, but if pressed, it’s that everyone else, whether they be in the car next to you or on the footpath, gets to hear the full-bore roar of its twin-turbo V8, something the occupants of the sedan, wagon or coupé don’t experience as they are cocooned by glass and metal from the cacophony that erupts from its cannon-sized tailpipes. Not that it isn’t already gloriously loud when you want it to be, but imagine if you could also get the same unadulterated soundtrack while on the move?
Well, soon you will be able to, as the final piece of the C-Class line up has been revealed with the first-ever Cabriolet version of the AMG C 63 S.
Unveiled at the New York International Motor Show, alongside a plethora of other premieres, including the AMG GLC 43 SUV and AMG E 43 Saloon, GLC Coupé and facelifted CLA Coupé and Shooting Brake, the AMG C 63 S Cabriolet is due to arrive in Australian showrooms before the end of the year, extending the range of open-top Mercedes-Benz models to an unprecedented level.
Based on the regular C-Class Cabriolet, the AMG C 63 S variant is transformed into one of the quickest drop-tops on the road thanks to a complete overhaul by the Affalterbach performance division.
