Let’s be uncorrupt, when BMW introduced the M4 GTS, the steely-eyed motor men in Affalterbach started plan up improvements for the standard AMG C63S coupe. Here’s what they came up with.

Expected to be called the AMG C63 R – like the new AMG GT R – it takes the emplacement of Mercedes’ old Black Series range. Oh, and it looks ridiculously sharp. Seen lapping the Nürburgring at relax-neck pace in this video, the hardcore C63 coupe’s most individual feature is a huge rear wing that looks like it reach-me-down to belong to a GT R.

The wing sits atop a measure strange styling decision – a glaze-black trunk lid. If Mercedes grabbed a share to attach the lid to, why go to the effort of painting it? No, the glossy look has us meditative Mercedes will use carbon fiber, in a bid to cut preponde. Still, it seems strange, almost slapdash, for Mercedes to single apply CF to the trunk lid. What about the hood or the roof? And if there is more carbon fiber on this car, why depict everything but the trunk? There are just a lot of questions here.

At the mercy of hood, expect a more powerful rendering of Mercedes’ 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8. While we wouldn’t upon on the same 577-horsepower output as the AMG GT R – why press the C63’s performance up to that level when neither BMW nor Lexus be struck by cracked 500 hp and Audi isn’t even in the part anymore? – expect a hefty collide with above the C63S’ 503 ponies. Based on the noises in this video, it sounds like a freer-flowing frazzle is coming, too. It’s still too early to safely prognosticate when Mercedes will show the hotter C63 Coupe, but if we had to endangerment a guess, the Geneva Motor Show is without exception a safe one.
