A 44 lb loss in weight isn't going to make this any quicker than a tuned C63 coupe and especially one with the optional performance package (and it also has the MCT, too.)

This appears to be more of a cosmetic package which is a bit disappointing. I guess we'll have to wait and see what else it has to offer that isn't already obtainable with the non-BS C63 coupe.
An increase of HP to 517+ horses and 477 ft lbs of torque doesn't sound like it's only a cosmetic thing to me, but what do I know?

If it is anything like the CLK Black, it will be pure win.

BMW is the one making so-called light weight cars and leaving in idrive systems.
