Geneva 11' Preview: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 Official Photos

Here are the first official photos of the revised 2012 Mercedes-benz C63. The 2012 C63 will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The revised C63 gets new headlights and taillights with embedded LEDs. The front end gets a reworked grille and a new bumper and there are new alloy wheels. Under the hood Mercedes has decided to stick with the naturally aspirated 451-hp 6.2-liter V8 engine instead of the new 5.5-liter biturbo engine. The Development Package raises the engine’s output to 481 horsepower and allows the C63 to reach a top speed of 174 mph. The big change under the hood is that the seven-speed Speedshift MCT automatic transmission, ditches a conventional torque converter for a clutch pack. The transmission allows the driver to choose between four driving modes.
