why still call it a 6.3 if they're going to use the 5.5?

M3 will have a hard time being as badass as this merc is about to be. I hope there is a four door variant in the works

I miss the CLK BS. Considering there is an E class coupe as the essential replacement for the CLK coupe, I think that an E 63 BS coupe is only appropriate. As for this C63 BS, I hope the glass roof is replaced with some carbon fiber

I think we can safely say they've moved it away from the Accord.

WTF, thats the 6.2. I thought this was going to receive the new 5.5 V8? Whatever it is I'm sure it will be a monster.

Over 600 hp with that natrually aspirated engine........ YES!!! This might actually be the NA's engine's last dance before all of benz's amg models use that new 5.5 v8

While that would be amazing.. I dont think Mercedes will extract that much power from the engine. The CLK63 Black Series was only 30hp more powerful than the regular CLK63 AMG.


The Black Series will likely focus on reduced weight and improved handling characteristics.

I'm pretty sure the SLS will be keeping the current dry sump M159 NA motor for a while.
