Could a C63 Black Series be the next AMG beast to add to my collection?! Thanks to GerCollector, I'm taking the red beast for a drive to see what it's like on the Autobahn and whether it could become a future member of the Shmeemobiles alongside my SLS Black Series, and if I'm lucky, the new GT Black Series as well.
The C63 AMG Black Series was the 4th model from AMG to wear the name badge, and again carries the formula with more power, an aggressive appearance and track focused driving dynamics. Based on the regular C63 AMG, the Black Series took the 6.2l NA V8's power to 517hp and 620Nm while adding a fixed wing and front flics for downforce, and stripping out some weight; particularly with the option to delete the rear seats.
The car in GerCollector's garage is in the launch Fire Opal Red, and suits the shapes and wide arches incredibly well, along with the contrast to the exposed carbon found around it. There are 800 C63 BS in total, but with both this car and my Mystic Blue SLS Black Series (the 5th AMG Black Series model) parked side by side, they sure do look the part!
With every finger and toe crossed that I'll be lucky enough to secure an allocation for the brand new AMG GT Black Series, I'm certainly considering expanding my collection and possibly with the addition of a C63 Black Series, hence visiting GerCollector and be reminded what it's like. Taking the two cars out together provides the added bonus of some flybys and tunnel runs for all the AMG noise to be enjoyed.
