6Mercedes to keep C63 AMG Coupe around through early 2015

Want to get your hands on an Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe? With the new C63 sedan already released, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the old model won't be around for much longer. But according to Car and Driver, the existing coupe will stick around for a little longer than we might have thought.

582015 Mercedes-AMG C63 packs up to 503 hp, arrives in March

Say hello to the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63. That's right, it's no longer the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG – its a formal Mercedes-AMG product, just like the GT that just launched earlier this month. Coincidence? Hardly. The new C63 packs the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 and features some of the same new-age tuning that AMG used in creating its new Porsche 911-fighting coupe. And boy, are we excited to drive this one.

19Mercedes details new 503-hp twin-turbo 4.0L V8 for AMG GT

Mercedes-Benz can't seem to help itself from leaking out information about the upcoming AMG GT sports coupe, but this is one seriously big drop of news. We already know what its sounds like, but a new video reveals a ton of juicy technical details about its twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 called the M178, including its power and torque figures.

15Mercedes recalling 284k C-Class models for taillight failure [UPDATE]

UPDATE: A Mercedes-Benz spokesperson has responded to our request for more information, with an official statement that you can read, below. Mercedes also points out that "no accidents, injuries, or deaths have been reported" as a result of the taillight issue.

8Next-gen Mercedes C63 AMG wagon nabbed

Just days after we caught the first glimpse of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG doing cold weather testing, here are some fresh images of its high-performance wagon sibling getting a workout. It has been a while since we've spotted Mercedes testing the C-Class T, but it's clear Affalterbach's version is getting an extra dose of aggressiveness.

26Most powerful Mercedes C63 AMG ever hits the test circuit

While the next Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has been rumored to get a new twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 with somewhere between 450 and 500 horsepower, the looks of the actual car have been a mystery – at least until now. Our spy shooters have caught Affalterbach's latest creation during cold-weather testing in Sweden, and it's surprisingly understated.

68Which would you rather have, Audi's RS5 or Mercedes' C63 AMG 507?

If you're in the market for a German sports coupe with a naturally aspirated V8, run, don't walk, to your nearest dealer because they are going to be gone very soon. European fuel economy and emissions rules have conspired to force automakers into seeking forced-induction mills. Motor Trend personality Jonny Lieberman is hosting the retirement party in the latest Head 2 Head video, where he takes on the 2014 Audi RS5 and 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 to decide which is the ultimate Teut

16Next Mercedes C63 getting convertible version

Mercedes-Benz launched its latest generation C-Class in January at the Detroit Auto Show, with the new sedan taking on the styling of the latest S-Class and shrinking it down to a more nimble, affordable size. Even though the new sedan is not going on sale here until September, the German luxury maven is reportedly already working on future variants – maybe even a C-Class AMG convertible.

48It's so hard to say goodbye to the C63 AMG's 6.2-liter V8

Contrary to what most marketing tells us, progress is not always forward. Sometimes a product nails the balance of what consumers want so perfectly that it's nearly impossible to improve on it – just compare the original Ford Mustang to the atrocious Mustang 2. Drive's Chris Harris is worried the same fate is about to befall the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, which he reckons is at the top of the heap of German sport sedans.

38Mercedes to roll out C63 AMG late in 2014 with 4.0L V8

The new 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is upon us, launching initially in North America with turbocharged four-cylinder C300 4Matic and six-cylinder C400 4Matic flavors. But that's only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to the vast array of powertrain configurations that will be offered in the new C-Class in markets around the world. Orders will soon be rolling in for gasoline, hybrid and diesel engines with four, six or eight cylinders, driving the rear wheels or all four, with the se

252014 Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series to start at $275k*, C63 Edition 507 priced from $70k*

The 2014 model year is shaping up to be quite an exciting one for fans of Mercedes-Benz and its AMG cars. Two of the newest additions to the AMG family go on sale over the next couple months, and Mercedes has revealed pricing for the ultimate SLS AMG GT and its most powerful and exclusive C63 AMG variant. The 2014 C63 AMG Edition 507 goes on sale this month with a price starting at $70,000 (*not including $925 for destination) and the 2014 SLS AMG GT Black Series hits dealers in August – i

542014 Mercedes C63 AMG Edition 507 [w/video]

Okay, so, crucify me. I pursued this steaming-hot Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 ever since the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, wanting – for all practical North American audience purposes – either the sedan or the coupe version. I assumed right up until the time of the drive near Stuttgart that such had been clearly understood.

5460-year-old woman takes her 11-second AMG to the track

Like any form of motorsports, drag racing is a passion that never dies. Case in point, check out this woman, who is an admitted "60-some-odd years old," caught in this video taking her murdered-out Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG to the track for a little side-by-side action. As it turns out, drag racing is even a family affair, too, as her husband hits the strip in a second-gen Dodge Viper.

172014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 still lights our fire

The current Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG may be in the autumn of its years, but it's still one of our very favorite sport sedans. Ever. Yes, its paddle-shift transmission may not always follow orders, but with stupendous levels of thrust from its charismatic naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8, ebullient rear-wheel-drive dynamics and that noise, we frankly don't care that it's getting on a bit.

46Mercedes-Benz ups ante with 2014 C63 AMG Edition 507

Buyers wanting a little more power from a standard Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG now have the all-new Edition 507 to lust after. As its name suggests, this new model features a more powerful 507-horsepower AMG V8, and it also gets plenty of performance and styling upgrades as well. Unlike the Black Series, the 2014 C63 AMG Edition 507 will be offered in both sedan and coupe body styles when it goes on sale this summer; based on the images, it appears that European customers will also be able to enjoy th

51Volvo S60 Polestar concept plays in the snow with Mercedes C63 AMG

Chris Harris took to a snowy stretch of tarmac to get a fingertips-on-the-wheel feel of the Volvo S60 Polestar concept. Harris says the turbocharged sedan with 508 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque – and a manual transmission – is "a study to see if Volvo can get back into the fast-car market." The Polestar S60 concept, one of which was already purchased for $300,000 by a private buyer, is still making the publicity rounds because even Volvo's Chinese owners realize that, as Ha

30AMG working on new 4.0L V8

AMG may be working up a new, small-displacement V8 for the C63. Autocar reports the Mercedes-Benz performance house aims to replace the naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 found in the brawny C-Class with a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8. Autocar cites unnamed sources as saying the new V8 is built on the same modular bones as the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine headed for the A45 AMG and CLA45 AMG. Both engines share bore spacing and individual cylinder displacement as well as other specific

59Motor Trend addresses reader feedback from Best Driver's Car roundup

We've already watched the 2012 Best Driver's Car competition from Motor Trend numerous times, and like us, apparently many M/T viewers had questions about the week-long, nine-car comparison. Not wanting to disappoint its audience, the crew got together to enjoy a few pints while reflecting on the experience and respond to viewer questions during an episode of The Downshift.

145Motor Trend returns with The World's Greatest Drag Race

Our old pal Jonny Lieberman gets to have all the fun. The former Autoblog editor now gets to play with multiple supercars at a time for his post at Motor Trend. As part of MT's Best Driver's Car award process, Lieberman and the rest of the magazine's team quarter-mile all of the year's contenders in what they call "The World's Greatest Drag Race." Based on the contenders, we're inclined to agree with their bluster.

142Motor Trend picks its top driver's car of 2012 [w/video]

Here's a test of nine cars (see above), only two of which make less than 500 horsepower. Three of these nine cars recorded 0-60 times of less than three seconds, and all the rest but one (the Subaru BRZ), did it in 4.2 or less. Those are impressive stats, to be sure, but huge horsepower figures and stupid-quick acceleration, while certainly amazing in its own way, doesn't necessarily mean the car is a blast to drive – as Motor Trend says, if it were, they'd be testing a bunch of Top Fuel d

36Mercedes-Benz sells out of C63 AMG Black Series coupes

If you've been sitting on your hands mulling over the idea of spending $125,000 on a Mercedes-Benz C-Class, we've got some bad news for you: your time is up. That's because, according to reports coming in from Europe, the German automaker has sold out every last example of the C63 AMG Black Series coupe.
