WE’VE been waiting for months for the sleeker, sexier, two-door version of the Mercedes-AMG C63 S to arrive, and now we finally have a date. And a price.

AMG’s C63 Coupe will hit Aussie roads in June priced from $162,400 as it takes the fight to the BMW M4 and the Audi RS5, both of which are slightly cheaper. The M4 costs $161,900, while the aging Audi is $157,510.

It’s lower, wider and meaner, with different tracks front and rear and staggered tyres that combine to boost on-the-limit handling.

The coupe is also the quickest car ever to wear the C63 badge, courtesy of a 0-100km/h claim of 3.9 seconds.

It kicks off with the C200 Coupe, priced from $65,900 and powered by a 135kW/300Nm turbo four-cylinder engine. Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloys, AMG body styling, sports suspension and LED headlights.

Also joining the C-Class Coupe range in December will be the AMG C43 Coupe and C43 Cabriolet, which cop AMG-tuned drivetrains and suspension, yet sit below the range-topping C63.
