Mercedes-Benz has been spotted testing a new aerodynamics package for the new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series. The pack appears to include a range of more aggressive carbon fibre spoilers and side skirts on top of the normal, and already pumped, Black Series Coupe.
Since the C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series is already one of the most extreme models in the company’s current lineup, what better way to really cement that fact by launching a full race aero kit.
It comprises a carbon fibre front chin spoiler and splitter system to help push air over the C 63 Coupe, as well as carbon fibre front winglets and side skirts for added downforce. The rear also includes a new more serious rear diffuser system with a large boot-mounted carbon fibre wing.
Additional carbon fibre is also added to the C 63 Coupe to help keep weight to a minimum, such as carbon fibre side mirror casings and various carbon trimming pieces added to the interior.
Reports suggest the production version of the kit will also include a new set of matt black 19-inch alloy wheels, a fire extinguisher setup and KEYLESS-GO. No changes to the engine are expected to be made, not that the 6.2-litre 380kW/620Nm V8 really needs any further attention.
The Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series is set to hit international showrooms in January next year. Australian deliveries will take place mid-2012. This aero kit will likely become available as an optional extra.
