2021 Mercedes-AMG C63 Cabriolet Review: AMG? More Like OMG

The fourth-generation Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet has been cruising the highways of the US since 2016 and is due for replacement soon, but that doesn't mean that this compact executive performance car is outdated in any way. In fact, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet gets a new 12.3-inch digital cluster to bring it in line with its competitors, and it still offers stunning exterior styling and a refined and sporty interior. The biggest drawcard, besides that drop-top, has to be the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 gas engine that produces up to 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. This big V8 lump is due to be replaced by a 4-cylinder hybrid powertrain, so if you're after proper muscle, this might be your last chance. The 2-door Mercedes-AMG 63 Cabriolet goes up against other German competitors such as the BMW M4 Convertible. In this 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet review, we will take a look at just how entertaining a drop-top AMG can be.

  • The soft-top doesn't affect the handling

Engine and Transmission

The C 63 Cabriolet, like many of its contemporaries, is living on borrowed time. Mercedes-AMG is well into the testing phase of the new C 63, and it has been confirmed that it will be powered by four, not eight, cylinders. Sure this is good for the planet but bad for everyone else. The 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet is thankfully still powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine and produces a hefty 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque on premium fuel. Add an "S" to the end of the title, and the C 63 then produces 503 hp and 516 lb-ft, which results in brutal performance and a 0-60 mph sprint time of just 3.9 seconds, with a top speed of 180 mph. Power is sent to the rear-wheel drivetrain via a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Verdict: ๐ŸIs the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet a good convertible?

Don't let the fact that the C63 Cabriolet is a soft-top fool you into thinking this isn't a true performance vehicle. It will stun you with its ability to entertain. Even experienced drivers will struggle to notice any significant differences between the soft- and hard-top versions of this car. The exterior is still striking, and the interior is well-built and refined. We did miss a few driver-assistance features, but the overall level of tech is impressive. Under the hood, that bi-turbo V8 roars to life and gives the C 63 model a specific sense of character that we're not sure a four-cylinder will ever be able to replace. Reliability and overall safety ratings are also impressive with this generation of C 63. If you're looking for wind-in-your-hair and BMW in your rearview mirror fun, then this is the car to go for, but hurry before all the V8s have vanished.

๐Ÿš—What 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet Model Should I Buy?

Since this is the last V8 C 63, we'd go all out and get the C 63 S with the added power and performance. On the outside, we'd go for the Iridium Silver metallic paint color with the 19/20-inch AMG cross-spoke wheels and the $1,750 AMG exterior carbon fiber package. On the inside, we'd opt for more carbon and get the $2,500 AMG performance seats and AMG performance steering wheel in Dinamica and carbon fiber. Finally, we'd get the $1,700 Driver Assistance Package for added peace of mind (which automatically adds the multimedia package). The total price of our 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet build comes to $97,745, including a destination fee of $1,050.
