2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

Mercedes-Benz has a hankering for cranking out powerful luxury cars all day long. The power-hungry engineers at AMG take those vehicles and play crazy games with the horsepower and torque antes. Occasionally, Mercedes and AMG let the uncorked mad scientists loose and a Black Series vehicle is born. What you're looking at above is the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series coupe making an unscheduled debut, and that cackling noise you hear is the sound of a wild-eyed, frizzy-haired engineer welcoming his creation into the world.

Rumor has it that this super coupe will pump out 517 horses and 472 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to a slight reduction in weight and a broader track, the C63 AMG Black Series should be a beast on the street and at the track. We'll wait for official figures (and some sweet sweet seat time) before providing real claims on what this two-door is capable of. Still, we're giddy just from looking at these photos.

      Whats with this sudden influx of commenters ripping on everything that isn't American? Seriously. Get the hell out. You are all morons, sound like little kids, and are just causing a nuisance. Get out.

      If there was ever a coupe that'd make me forget the M3 exists, this would be it. RS5, you're pretty, but I need more than just looks, like say a NA 6.2 V8 with 517hp to the rear wheels. Yeah, that'd do it. I can't wait for the company pictures of this beast.

      If it had as much hp as an SLS, I would worship it. Mr. Clarkson will REALLY love this one!

      This is the sort of car that might make you fantasize about doing inexplicable things to an automobile.

      Whoah? Bigger wheels? Not fashionable here in Euroland. This looks like the perfect size to me.

        they don't fill out the wheel wells. I'm not looking for huge rollers but the car is either sitting too high or the wheels are too small for me.

      I never thought I'd say this about a red Mercedes, but that is sexy.
