A combination of racing prowess and everyday comfort, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 is unmistakably part of the exclusive AMG family in both design and performance. A 3.0-litre V6 BITURBO engine, capable of reaching 0-100km/h in 4.9 heart-racing seconds rests growls smoothly under the exquisitely contoured bonnet.
Hallmark AMG body styling with light-alloy wheels and AMG signature badges on the front wings of the car highlight the progressive nature and performance of the brand. The AMG branding continues in the seat-upholstery, made for superior comfort on long journeys.
The new C 43 offers supreme agility and driving dynamics, thanks to a substantial torque curve; 367hp and 520Nm of torque power sets new standards for the car’s segment, unlocking new and more powerful possibilities for the luxury sports car. 7-speed automatic transmission adds to the comfort of driving the car, with smooth transitions for relaxed driving and the possibility for multiple downshifts for fast and powerful sprints.
As with all AMG models, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 offers advanced safety measures from the sturdy structure of the car to all-round airbag protection. The adjustable steel chassis with electronically controlled damping system includes newly developed components that results in very high camber stability during dynamic cornering.
The steering wheel offers the highest level of control yet, even at high speeds, with speed-sensitive power assistance. The level of power assistance decreases at high speeds and increases at low speeds, insuring optimum control and reducing the risk of the wheel being wrenched out of the driver’s hands at high speeds.
AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive offers supreme stability in bad road conditions, such as when driving on snow or ice, with an innovative 33% to 67% split of the engine torque between the front and rear wheels respectively. A multiple-disc clutch with 50Nm blocking effect also guarantees full realization of the road adhesion potential of all four wheels.
The Mercedes-AMG C 43 offers an athletic character, with plenty of classic AMG styling elements. A criss-cross grille and silver chrome trim add a sporty style, while two exhaust pipe trim elements give the rear a four-pipe look to add a touch of muscle.
The interior offers nothing but comfort, trimmed with classic AMG styling such as the AMG-specific seat upholstery and sporty 3-spoke nappa leather multifunction sports steering wheel. Pronounced lateral support on the sports seats offer bracing for passengers around tight corners, as well as long distance comfort for a superior experience.
Red detailing finishes the interior with a classy touch,
edging the interior of the steering wheel and the edges of the floor mats,
along with top-stitching on the ARTICO man-made leather seats. A red aluminium
inset on the V6 engine cover highlights again the strength and power of the
machine as well as adding an understated sporty flair.
Nothing but superior technology makes the Mercedes-AMG C 43 better on every level, from the engine to the interior media displays. Advances in engine technology allowed the AMG engineers to increase the engine’s power and output torque with modified boost pressure, setting new standards across the board for the car’s class.
The 7-speed automatic transmission is able to allow a wide ratio spread with low engine speed increments between the individual gears, leading to faster responses and more fuel-efficient gear changes, as well as smoother transitions for an improved driving experience across the board. The 7G-TRONIC PLUS is also able to skip individual gears for faster and more powerful sprints, making the car ready for any type of driving.
