Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series
The Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series has other strengths – although it, like the limited CL 65 AMG "40th Anniversary", was developed in the AMG PERFORMANCE STUDIO. This fast, two-seater V8 coupe is both technically and visually related to the Official F1™ Safety Car. The AMG 6.3-liter V8, its performance boosted to 373 kW/507 hp, can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds – accompanied by a powerful V8 note from the new AMG sports exhaust system. Optimized for the racing circuit, the coupe features sophisticated cooling design measures that give it maximum stamina no matter how hard it is driven.
There is nothing second-rate about this car's power transmission, suspension and brakes: the modified AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC with its shorter rear-axle ratio ensures even greater agility in all speed ranges. The suspension setup can be personalized with the new AMG threaded sports suspension to alter the suspension level; the rear-axle differential lock provides optimum traction, and the AMG high-performance brake system, with larger composite-technology disks on the front axle, delivers impressive deceleration values. Amazing cornering speeds are guaranteed by the standard tires in size 265/30 R 19 (front) and 285/30 R 19 (rear), which are mounted on particularly light 19-inch AMG forged rims.
Pure Racing: Exterior and Interior of the CLK 63 AMG Black Serie
Visually, too, the CLK 63 AMG Black Series shows its close kinship with the Official F1™ Safety Car. A new front apron with large cooling intakes and lateral carbon-fiber outlets, flared wheel arches, and a rear apron with diffusor fins and active rear-axle cooling, point unmistakably to the transfer of technology from motor sport, which has been Mercedes-AMG's corporate philosophy for 40 years now. Inside the car, the uncompromised line continues. AMG sports seats, an AMG performance sports steering wheel with an oval rim and 365-millimeter diameter, and carbon-fiber trim on the center console, the AMG instrument cluster and the doors, all create the functional atmosphere of a genuine racing car.
