There's a retired couple in the trunk.

M-B requires at least two occupants over the age of 60 either in the cabin or in storage.

The M-B guys will telly you the motor in the C63 is a few kilos lighter, not sure how that's measured.

Yes, I think they were quoting something right around 200kg. But without weighing the two engines the same way, it is difficult to tell.

Nope. They pretty much weigh the same. FYI the new AMG 63 engine actually weigh about 40-50 lbs LESS than their old 55 supercharged engine.
