Commenting on this, Mr Tobias Moers, Mercedes-AMG GmbH chairman said, "The extension of the C-Class family to include the new C 43 4MATIC Coupé is another component in our growth strategy. It not only enriches the wide line-up of the C-Class family, but also starts the introduction of a whole series of new ‘43’ models this year. The ‘43’ models boast the characteristic AMG genes, which are also included in our GT and ‘63’ vehicles, and thus consistently interpret our brand essence of 'Driving Performance' in their segment."

Speaking of the exterior, the C 43 Coupe gives a sporty appearance, making it instantly recognisable as a member of the AMG family.

The aluminium trim pieces with light-tone longitudinal grain embedded in the instrument panel and the doors provide effective contrasts.

The motor is connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission, which is a rear wheel biased all wheel drive system that produces 367 HP and 520 Nm of torque. It can accelerate from 0 – 100 kmph in 4.7 seconds before hitting an electronically limited speed of 250 kmph.

When we talk about performance, not to forget it’s an AMP develop machine, equipped with an AMG Ride Control sport suspension and five AMG DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes "Eco", "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport Plus" and "Individual".

This modifies key parameters, such as the response of the engine, transmission, suspension set-up and steering.
