You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

481hp with the development package. That doesn't come standard.

...more

The big change for 2012 is the AMG Speedshift Plus seven-speed MCT transmission. The race-quick gearbox uses a multi-plate wet clutch instead of a torque convertor to ensure as much torque as possible makes it to the pavement. It improves fuel economy through more efficient operation and also features a conservation mode with start/stop function. When not saving the planet, drivers can choose from Sport, Sport+, and full Manual mode. Stoplight grand prix racers will appreciate the Manual mode's AMG Race Start with launch control. While somewhat tedious to engage, the Race Start assures the fastest start possible with wheel spin. That's not an easy task with the mountain of torque available.

Suspension tuning is specific to the coupe but dynamically very similar to the sedan. The AMG models use a multi-link setup in front instead of a single lower control arm with a MacPherson strut like other C-Class models. The lighter and more aggressive suspension has been designed to provide better driver communication as well as greater amounts of static negative camber and more kinematic camber gain. The rear is a reinforced version of the regular C-Class' multi-link suspension with a wider track and again more negative camber. For 2012, the AMG Sedan version receives a larger rear anti-roll bar that will also be used on the coupe. Not surprisingly, tire and wheel fitments stay the same.

This car looks amazing. The interior/exterior changes look 10x better than the current C63.

The more pictures I see, the more I like it.

The back looks a little tall, which reminds me a bit too much of the last C-coupe in the US (eek). It's growing on me though.

Interior = killer. Damn that's a sick steering wheel. Damn.

Facelift did wonders for the personality of the C.

I'm curious if the mileage is any worse than the outgoing C63.

Also, is the engine still NA? Would be a shame if they jumped the gun early to FI on this car.

This and 2012 C63 sedan is just a refresh, similar to the LCI BMW's.

It is still running the 6.2L NA engine.

Mileage has infact increased, not by much. They attribute it to the new transmission and a more efficient steering pump.

Test drove C63 last year but could not get past the plain, kinda ugly rear end and interior. And it having 4 doors. Now its just the rear end! Other than that this car is sweet.

DO WANT. It looks so much better in motion. I actually really dig the hood. It looks soft in photos, but you can see how sharp the light dashes across it here.

It looks remarkably like a e92 with a Merc front fascia. Even has a hofmeister kink, but maybe slightly smaller rear fender flares.

Not really. The kink is definitely the biggest design theft though. The surfacing of the cars couldn't be any more different.

If there is a Black Series of this in the future, that would be just delightful.
