Mercedes-Benz' in-house tuner AMG has developed a sporty version of the Sports Coupe, the C 32 AMG Sports Coupe. The 4.34-metre long two-door vehicle is powered by the V6 supercharged engine which already ensures dynamic driving in the C 32 AMG and the SLK 32 AMG.
The vehicle is fitted with a 5-speed automatic transmission with AMG Speedshift function which combines the dynamism of a manual transmission and the convenience of an automatic. The optimum gear function and the active engine-braking downshift, together with manual bypassing of the torque converter from first gear, allow an extremely direct driving experience. The AMG Speedshift transmission design means that gear changes are more spontaneous and around 35 percent faster.
The brakes and suspension of the Mercedes-Benz C 32 AMG Sports Coupe have also been systematically adapted to the vehicle's more dynamic handling. The retuning of the springing and damping elements all round, the enlarging of the stabilisers and the lowering of the body by around 30 millimetres ensure sporty handling without impairing the long-distance qualities expected in a Mercedes. The internally ventilated brake disks all-round, perforated at the front axle, ensure minimal stopping distances and extreme reliability on prolonged application of the brakes.
The exhaust system is a totally new development: the Sports Coupé, with its V6 supercharged engine, has a twin exhaust. The two oval, chromed tailpipes not only round off the vehicle perfectly, in typical AMG style, but also deliver an impressive sound.
The standard vehicle is converted into a C 32 AMG Sports Coupe to individual customer requirements at Mercedes-AMG in Affalterbach. The safety and quality standards which apply to every Mercedes-Benz vehicle are, of course, taken into account in this process. The AMG package consists of the engine, exhaust system, transmission, suspension, brakes, 18-inch wheels, AMG instrument cluster with 300-km/h speedometer and AMG bodystyling.
