Mercedes-Benz Malaysia looks set to introduce another member to its AMG family soon as our resident photographer, Sherman Sim, has spotted the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe on our roads wearing a local trade plate.

The sleeker, two-door sibling to the C 63 S Sedan is powered by the familiar M177 4.0 litre biturbo V8 engine that outputs 510 hp and 700 Nm. A less powerful version of the engine (476 hp/650 Nm) is available for variants without the ‘S’ in its name, but as we’ve experienced with the Sedan’s introduction, it will likely not be offered here.

As this is the C 63 S, a three-stage adjustable AMG Ride Control sports suspension will come as standard, along with an electronic rear axle locking differential – the latter of which isn’t featured on the regular C 63.

The car seen here also sports 19-inch AMG nine-dual Y-spoke alloy wheels finished in matte-black. Being a full-fledged AMG model, a complete bodykit is fitted here as well, featuring new bumpers, diffuser and side skirts. The quad tailpipes, an AMG trademark, further differentiates the model from a non-AMG C-Class Coupe.

Inside, the C 63 S Coupe is identical to the Sedan, with plenty of carbon-fibre on show, and other familiar W205 C-Class bits. Additional switchgear for the AMG Dynamic Select and various other AMG-specific controls are also present beside the car’s touchpad.

It shouldn’t be too long before the C 63 S Coupe makes its official debut here, but the only question left is, how much and will an Edition 1 version be offered as well? As a reference, the C 63 S Sedan is priced at RM698,888 (OTR without insurance), while the Edition 1 model is a RM25,000 premium.
