A new Mercedes-Benz C250 Sport model is bringing some AMG performance magic to the coupe version of the German car maker’s volume-selling model.
A pair of C250 Sport coupe models will make their debut at the upcoming 2012 Sydney motor show, introducing equipment and handling upgrades for both the four-cylinder petrol C250 and four-cylinder diesel C250 CDI.
The Sport models cost an additional $8150 over the regular C250 Coupe versions, taking the price for both the 1.8-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel to $78,050.
The extra outlay brings stiffer, AMG-tuned sports suspension, a quicker steering rack, sports exhaust, larger brake discs, sharper throttle response, and revised Sport and Manual modes for the seven-speed auto that provide faster gearshifts and automatic throttle blips on downchanges.
There’s also an exclusive matt silver paint available for the Mercedes-Benz C250 Sport models flamboyantly named ‘designo magno platinum’.
There are no power upgrades so both C250 models still offer 150kW of power.
A cosmetic-focused AMG Sports Package, also available on C-Class sedan and wagon models, is also incorporated into the Sport pricing.
This package adds 18-inch AMG multi-twin-spoke alloy wheels, lip spoiler, black artificial leather sports seats, red seatbelts, AMG floormats, and red stitching on parts of the interior including seats, doors and centre console.
The package costs $6350 for some sedan and wagon versions of the C-Class.
The Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe Sport is now available to order.
