C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series arrives in Sydney
The final touches to the first Mercedes Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series destined for Australia were made just weeks ago and the Mercedes Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series has now arrived.

Performing a number of duties at this year’s 2012 Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix, the GT3 series inspired AMG is the first of 32 to arrive in Australia, of which all are sold.

Finished in Diamond White paint work and matte black wheels, the C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series arrives with an optional AMG Aerodynamics package which includes an adjustable rear aerofoil, enlarged front splitter and carbon fibre flics on the front bumper. These combined with the two bucket seats inside make for an amazing road car which doubles as a great track car.
