With its staple widebody styling that has made the Black Series recognizable worldwide, the C63 AMG blended performance in a stylish coupe body packing an AMG 6.2-liter V8 with 517-hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. Backed up with tuned suspension and superior braking performance, it’s undoubtedly one of the best vehicles out of AMG’s factory.
So what could make it even better? A matte black finish of course. As much as we thought the whole matte black thing would die out, it has become a stylish option for the right cars and it makes the C63 AMG Black Series perfect.
The matte black variant of the C63 AMG Black Series is dubbed UK Edition, and it appears that it’ll only be available out in the UK. But that shouldn’t stop enthusiasts and owners from giving their C63 AMG Black Series its own matte black treatment. We’d love to see a couple of these roaming around our streets.

To best showcase the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe Mercedes-Benz has produced two videos with contrasting drivers and vehicles, both filmed on track at Laguna Seca Raceway in Northern California.
Known for its infamous corkscrew, Laguna Seca Raceway can easily be recognized by automotive enthusiasts worldwide. What’s entertaining to watch in the two videos however is how tame the driver in the white C63 Black Series takes it on the vehicle (at least in the beginning of the video) while the driver in the Fire Opal (red) C63 gets it sideways and shows off what it can really do.
So there you have it – whichever way you may want to take the 6.3L V8, 510-hp and 457 lb-ft of torque Coupe out for a spin, you can. Mercedes did it out on the track, showing off the versatility of their C63 AMG Black Series Coupe.
Watch the two videos below:
White or red just not cutting it for your 517-hp Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series? Need something a little more flashy and attention grabbing? You’re in luck, with Mercedes announcing the C63 AMG Black Series will also be available in a new Solar Beam color choice, which looks to be a brilliant pearlescent shade of yellow.
Few details have been provided but pictures of the car from a drive event at Laguna Seca were posted on the Mercedes-Benz Canada Facebook page. It surely looks much more aggressive than its red and white counterparts and a nice touch are the contrasting black wheels and carbon fiber accents. Too bad this didn’t come out earlier, Bumblebee could have been a much cooler, Solar Beam Benz.
