Mercedes has revealed the C63 AMG Black Series, the more evil twin of the evil twin of the C-Class. At the heart lies the 6.2-litre V8, now with 518PS. Then it's borrowed the rear axle from the E63 leading to a 79mm wider rear track. Balancing that is a 40mm wider front track. While borrowing the axle, it swiped the 390mm front/360mm rear brakes and the 255/35 ZR19 front and 285/30 ZR19 rear tyres from the bigger car as well. The 40 per cent limited-slip diff that is an option on other AMGs is standard. Also Read - Watch | This Russian YouTuber Dropped His Rs 1.4 Crore Mercedes From a Helicopter
All of the extras mean… less weight. That's thanks to the seats – they've thrown out the rear bench as always (but strangely have kept it an option) and installed lightweight front ones. Specify a track package and you'll get the optional carbonfiber rear wing, semi-slick Michelin Cup tyres and active cooling for the rear diff.

The C63 AMG Black series will go on sale in January 2012 and Mercedes hasn't announced a specific number for production, but the last three models sold 1000 units combined, so you can be sure that a sighting of one of these will be rarer than most exotics.
