Mercedes C63 AMG: description and specifications

In the wheel arches, which have retained their design, AMG brand wheels from cast steel are installed.
At the rear of the body, you can see the neat exhaust pipes, a compact and very interesting spoiler and a larger bumper diffuser.
Despite the fact that the exterior of the Mercedes C63 AMG was amended, the dimensions of the car in both versions remained unchanged.
