2021 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Review: All V8s Go To Heaven

As the world of ICE cars slowly draws to a close, we must celebrate the big and brawny muscle cars still on offer in the US. Our range of domestic muscle is diverse, but the Germans also offer a magnificent selection, and few do it better than Mercedes-AMG. The 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe is the perfect example of a modern German performance coupe, and with up to 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque on offer from a 4.0-liter handcrafted bi-turbo V8 gas engine, this 2-door sports coupe offers massive performance but is also a refined and technically advanced machine that's a pleasure to live with daily. The next second-generation car promises a turbocharged four-cylinder with hybrid assistance, so no more V8 rumble. That makes this vehicle an endangered species and worth preserving. The C 63 Coupe's main competitor, the BMW M4, might be newer, but this old Merc still has a ton of fight left in it.

Engine and Transmission

The engine under the hood of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe is one of its most significant selling points. In a world filled with small capacity turbo end hybrid powertrains, the C 63 Coupe stands out as a bastion of muscle. This German sports car is powered by a 4.0-liter handcrafted bi-turbo 8-cylinder engine producing a potent 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque in base form, while the C 63 S pushes those figures up to 503 hp and 516 lb-ft. Power is sent to the rear-wheel drivetrain via a slick 9-speed automatic transmission. The 63 S will manage a 0-60 mph sprint time of only 3.7 seconds. Neither model is particularly fuel efficient, but the later is definitely thirstier.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe a good car?

The fact that the 2021 C 63 Coupe will be the last of its kind, and will soon be replaced by a hybrid, makes this a collectors car even before it has left the showroom floor, but before you go and buy one, there are a few things to note. Firstly, the ride on this car is firm, and it is not exactly a GT cruiser, but most AMG fans will find it more than accommodating. The trunk is on the small side, and the rear legroom is compromised, but that's about it. Yes, there is no official safety rating review of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe, but a lot of advanced driver assists come standard and the German automaker is renowned for its reliability. This car is a real beauty from the outside in. The cabin is typically refined and boasts all the latest tech features and luxury materials. The 4-liter V8 engine loves to make a noise and jerk you back into your seat when stomping on the loud pedal. This thing is a pure German muscle car, and it deserves to be cherished.

🚗What Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Model Should I Buy?

The price of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe is pretty high, but the price of not getting one could be even greater, seeing as this is the last V8 generation we'll ever see. If we were doing the buying, we'd get one in Iridium Silver and add the 19/20 inch AMG forged cross-spoke wheels for an additional $1,600. We'd also add the AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber Package 1 for $1,750, which adds carbon elements to the side mirrors and rear spoiler. The inside would also look better with a dash of carbon fiber and AMG Performance front seats for $2,500. Finally, we'd add the $1,700 Driver Assistance Package, which includes driver aids such as lane change assist, speed limit assist, and evasive steering assist.
