Mercedes Benz India today launched the C Class AMG Performance Edition. The car, which is a visual replica of the monstrous and our very favourite C63 AMG comes with a sticker price of INR 34.62 lakhs (ex showroom, Mumbai). The new Mercedes Benz comes just a few days after Audi S4 was launched in the country at Rs 45.31 lakh (ex-showroom, Maharashtra). This new version of the C Class comes with 17″ AMG 5 twin spoke alloy wheels, perforated front brake discs, Mercedes Benz lettering on brake callipers, polished stainless steel tailpipe trim and a sport suspension. On the inside, the car getsa new upholstery, a redesigned dashborad with AMG steering wheel draped in nappa leather, gearknob, pedals, an instrument cluster featuring 3 analogue dials with tapered tube style surrounds & a high-resolution 4.50inch TFT color display. The floor mats now come in black with well pronounced AMG lettering gracing them.
Coming to the most important bit, the motor in the C Class AMG Performance Edition is the same that powers the C250 CDI. You just shot yourself at your foot in case u were flying high with hopes of an AMG engine at that price. All is not lost though, as said above, this version comes with a tuned suspension and offers a very well sorted handling package.
Mr. Debasis Mitra, Sales & Marketing Director at Mercedes–Benz India said that the new C Class AMG Performance Edition is all set to redefine its segment by offering high luxury and sportiness that comes from a AMG tuned car.
