The 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show gave us our first look at the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe in the flesh. Despite the ridiculously long name, the car is a certified badass, with a 6.2L V8 packing 517 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. This will likely be the final application for the big 6.2L engine before AMG switches over to its 5.5L twin-turbo version.
19″ wheels, a special aerodynamics package and AMG sport seats are the notable changes from the regular C63 Coupe. One interesting option are the available rear seats, with Mercedes forcing you to pay more for the privilege of being able to carry rear seat passengers. The rest of the interior is all business, finished in black Alcantara, while a tuner-esque aluminum wing lets other plebians know just what they’re dealing with.
