Video teaser released by Mercedes to whet our appetites

Even though there are many fantastic luxury cars for all tastes on the road today, none have been anticipated with quite as much interest as the soon-to-be-launched Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe. The German luxury car giant is a past master in marketing its vehicles and hiking-up interest from the many fans of the brand in all the major markets, and the two-door sports car will be in the showrooms soon.

A video has just been released from the Affalterbach plant to quicken our pulse levels and keep us wondering just what the new supercar will be like. The video is not very long; in fact, it does not tell us very much at all about what we can expect at the launch. Offerings in the past suggest that this vehicle will have a good-looking front and a sloping roof. This model will be the fun, sporty version of the seriously scary W205 AMG C 63; as such, it will attract a particular type of driver who wants a car that not only turns heads but also delivers great performance.

The Coupe will not be that much different to the saloon, but it will have two fewer doors and frameless windows. The engine will probably be the AMG V8 biturbo 4.0-litre, which will deliver torque levels of 650Nm. Other features are likely to include a rear end similar to the S-Class Coupe, slim back lights, and a bumper-mounted number plate recess.
