Cherished, cosseted and always garaged, this muscular machine oozes dynamism finished in desirable Calcite White, (Code 650). From the powerdomes on the bonnet hinting at the V8 powerhouse beneath to the flared wheel arches designed to accommodate the broader front axle, it is clear this car dramatically flaunts its motor racing genes. The vibrant paintwork is unmarked other than a few carefully touched in stone chips to the front and all trim, light clusters and glass is perfect. AMG aficionados will soon spot the carbon fibre spoiler lip on the boot lid and red brake calipers as obvious features of the essential and expensive AMG Performance Package Plus. This really is special.
Massive specification and an impressive sporting cockpit, the AMG black leather sports seats with integral head restraints and embossed AMG lettering feature electric memory adjustment to the driver and passenger allowing them to be adapted precisely to individual requirements. The AMG-specific tubular-design instrument cluster with “AMG” and “6.3 V8” lettering and 200mph speedo, (almost achievable with the factory P30 speed limiter increased), remind the driver how special this machine is. The desirable nappa leather and Alcantara steering wheel is only found on the Performance Package Plus. Pristine carpeting is protected by AMG carpet mats and spotless controls with outstanding ergonomics defy their age. All door and boot shuts sparkle due to fastidious and regular cleaning. It is hard to imagine a better place to be.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The heart of the C63 AMG is the 6.3-litre V8 engine and each AMG engine bears the signature of the single Master Technician who assembled it from race-proven components with his own hands using the “one man – one engine” principle. Fitted with option 923 – increased power version, is the externally visible darker Titanium Grey in lieu of Silver Inlet Manifold Plenum. Within, lighter SLS engine internals including the forged crankshaft, rods and pistons as well as a revised factory ECU tune push power from 457bhp to 481bhp. With absolute full Mercedes service history thanks to a continual service contract schedule and reassurance the engine number is post the introduction of the revised bolt head design, the new owner has piece of mind. The AMG Speedshift PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission with throttle-blipping function for ultra-smooth downshifting gives goosebumps the moment you start the engine and importantly a Quaife LSD is fitted for the ultimate C63 AMG experience.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Gorgeous 19-inch multi-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels, with a high-sheen titanium grey paint finish and mixed-size tyres measuring 235/35 R19 at the front and 255/30 R19 at the rear are shod in matching Continental SportContact dated 2019. Part of the P30 AMG Performance Package Plus is the AMG high-performance braking system to ensure greater stability when driving dynamically, with compound brake discs on the front axle and red painted brake callipers all round showing the AMG logo. The brake discs feature a composite design and are connected to an aluminium bowl to avoid temperature peaks. Formidable.
Registered new on the 20th December 2010 this prime example boasts excellent credentials rarely seen in being only two private owners and full Mercedes-Benz main dealer service history from new. The file is eye wateringly reassuring with everything from the Pre-Delivery Inspection Sheet, the Approved Mercedes invoice to Mr Wilkins in May 2013 for £38,340, to the latest service invoice less than a year and 157 miles ago! Mr Wilkins took out a Service Care plan paying by monthly Direct Debit to Mercedes UK Limited from point of purchase until the sale in 2023, ensuring the car was religiously and professionally maintained according to the strict Mercedes AMG guidelines. As an Automotive Design Engineer and a member of the AMG Private Lounge, his passion and dedication to this car is blatantly obvious. Every service invoice, warranty letter, health check sheet and document neatly filed chronically. His search for this car was exhausting, such were the demanding parameters of perfect condition and exact specification, but now the benefits are clear for the next knowledgeable custonian.
