The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014, officially referred to as Mercedes-Benz AMG C-Coupé DTM or Mercedes-Benz C-Klasse Coupé DTM, is a DTM race car by Mercedes-Benz based on the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG.

Description

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring car 2014 is the successor to the Mercedes-Benz C-Klasse which was permanently retired after the 2011 season. The AMG C-Coupé DTM is based on the Mercedes-Benz C-Coupé. Mercedes-Benz chose the IAA International Motor Show in Frankfurt to present the new 2012 DTM AMG Mercedes C-Coupé. The new car is the successor to the AMG Mercedes C-Class, which scored 84 victories in 156 races to become the most successful vehicle in the 27-year history of the DTM. HWA AG began development, design and construction of the DTM AMG Mercedes C-Coupé in June 2010. The first chassis was assembled in June 2011, with the first vehicle completed in August.

The DTM AMG Mercedes C-Coupé was designed to meet the new and improved safety concept for 2012, which includes a state-of-the-art carbon fibre monocoque and a roll cage made of high strength steel. In order to improve driver protection in the event of an accident, all safety-related components such as the fire extinguishing system and fuel tank have been incorporated into the monocoque. Furthermore, each vehicle is equipped with six crash structures to give the driver additional protection to the front, rear and sides. These carbon fibre crash structures are designed to gradually absorb impact energy, so that the driver is not exposed to high deceleration forces.

The new safety concept was developed jointly by rights holder and promoter ITR e.V., the DMSB and the three manufacturers – Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. In order to verify the performance of the DTM safety concept, the DMSB developed a test programme, which was carried out and analyzed by DEKRA, the independent testing organization. All tests were completed without any problems.

The new DTM AMG Mercedes C-Coupé is based on the latest Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé, which celebrated its world premiere in summer 2011. The C-Class Coupé rounds off Mercedes-Benz's best-selling range and is offered with a choice of five engines – two diesel and three petrol units – developing from 115 kW (156 hp) to 225 kW (306 hp). The C-Class Coupé is manufactured at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen. It’s the fourth model to be built on a single production line alongside the saloon and estate versions, plus GLK – a new production method for Daimler.

Summary

Mercedes-AMG C 63 CTC 2014 MAX+TK

The Mercedes-Benz C-Coupé DTM, renamed to Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014, was added to the game in the Enduro Update. It is the only Research & Development car of the update.

The Mercedes-Benz C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014 is a mid-high-end Class A car, with the following tank statistics:

  • Starting rank: 1313
  • MAX rank: 1593 (+280)
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1754 (+161)
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +54
    • If the general trend is observed, this is slightly higher than most Class A cars.

The C 63 Coupe's main rivals in Class A are the Ferrari 330 P4 (A1749), Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 (A1758), Chevrolet Corvette C3 (A1759), Sbarro Alcador (A1760), McLaren 675LT (A1763), Mosler GT3 (A1765), Bentley EXP10 Speed 6 (A1770), Jaguar XJ220S (A1772), and Aston Martin One-77 (A1777).

The C 63 Coupe has a cosmetic Speed Modification of 99.94%. It is one of only three Class A cars to have a Speed Modification (the other cars being the Mosler GT3 and Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid).

Performance

The Mercedes-Benz C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014 specializes in acceleration and drifting. It has a low raw top speed and a moderately high total top speed within Class A, with a moderately large nitro stat. The C 63 Coupe also has decent handling and a decent nitro efficiency of 7/12/17.

Overall, the C 63 Coupe's performance for its rank (~1750) can be described as being similar to the performances of the Aston Martin Vulcan (~1800), Pagani Huayra (~1700), and Pagani Zonda R (~1650).

The C 63 Coupe is one of the fastest-accelerating Mercedes-Benz cars, roughly tieing with the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition and Mercedes-AMG GT3; it also accelerates considerably slower than the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, however, the latter is considered a McLaren car by the game. Within the mid-high-end Class A cars, the C 63 Coupe has the best acceleration, tying with the EXP10 Speed 6. Within all of Class A, the C 63 Coupe has the second-best acceleration.

The C 63 Coupe's drifting radius is superb, even beating the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25. However, the Mosler GT3 has a better drifting radius, within the mid-high-end Class A cars.

Within the mid-high-end Class A cars, the C 63 Coupe is not the most competitive car, due to its mediocre speed and nitro efficiency. However, the C 63 Coupe can partially compensate for this with its combination of superb acceleration and drifting.

Usage (TLEs, MPEs and Grinding)

In TLEs, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014 is an excellent option if the player does not have any of the extremely good Class A cars; notably, the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, SIN R1, Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition.

The C 63 Coupe can accomplish lap-times that are slightly worse than those of the McLaren 675LT, especially on shorter tracks. However, in MPEs, the C 63 Coupe is definitely the superior choice, due to its quicker acceleration. This can allow the player to get an early lead, which can give them more control over the nitro pickups in the map. The quicker acceleration also makes it easier to knock other players down. In MPEs with tracks like Sector 8 or Dubai, the C 63 Coupe can be considered as the third-best Class A car. The only car that can consistently defeat the C 63 Coupe on these maps is the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25; the SIN R1 also has a high chance of defeating the C 63 Coupe. The Ferrari 330 P4 performs similarly in these situations.

Despite not being featured in any collections nor in Career Mode, the C 63 Coupe is still useful at the MAX+PRO (entry rank is MAX only) level for grinding A8Credits. It has an excellent Season 9 race located in Westminster Bridge, London. The payout is around A8Credits 11,400-11,600 per race, with 0 VIP levels and a Double Credits Booster activated. The lap-time is around 48-52 seconds. Notably, traffic is not present in the race but obstacles are. The Aston Martin Vulcan possesses a similar Season 9 race.

Usage (Multiplayer)

In Multiplayer, the C 63 Coupe is a decent choice, being capable of achieving a rating of around 1800-1900 points. The C 63 Coupe relies mainly on its superb acceleration and drifting, as well as its above-average speed. The C 63 Coupe mainly competes with the McLaren MP4/8, TVR Sagaris, Holden Coupe 60, Lamborghini Estoque, Mercedes-AMG GT3, Lotus Evora Sport 410, Lamborghini Asterion, Chevrolet Corvette C3, and McLaren 675LT in Multiplayer.

The C 63 Coupe can be used at the MAX+PRO level, where it will lose by a small margin to most high-end Class S cars but where it will still be able to defeat most other cars. The C 63 Coupe can also be used at a lower-level near ranks 1450-1600, where it will have a higher chance of winning races.

Unfortunately, the C 63 Coupe is very difficult to obtain, let alone obtain with a Multiplayer tune. The C 63 Coupe's rare and difficult R&D makes it only a "seasonal" car, for whoever managed to obtain it during its two R&D events. The C 63 Coupe's R&D is too difficult for it to be won at a low-ranked tune even below 1600, which makes it practically impossible to Multiplayer tune unless the player pays A8Tokens (either to pass the R&D or to purchase the car on sale). If the C 63 Coupe is eventually converted into a Blueprints car, then it might become more useful for Multiplayer.

Optimal Tuning Setup

  • 0504 5050 - Rank A1585
    • 285.0 mph (459.1 km/h)
  • 0500 5050 - Rank A1506
    • 274.5 mph (442.1 km/h)

Price

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car costs A8Tokens 10,000 when available for a limited time, and A8Credits 2,274,650 or A8Tokens 13,175 to max out.

Availability

Following the conclusion of its R&D event, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014 was made available for a limited time from August 19, 2016 to August 21, 2016, in conjunction with an owners-only cup. The car was made available again from November 25, 2016 to November 28, 2016 in conjunction with another owners-only event. The car was once again made available for purchase for a limited time from April 14, 2017 through April 17, 2017. The car was made available to buy for A8Tokens 10,000 from February 28, 2018 to March 4, 2018 following a Falcon F7 and Weber Faster One sale. Currently, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014 and the Weber Faster One are the only exclusive cars from the Enduro Update that haven't been made unlockable by Blueprints yet.

Its R&D was first revived on July 29th 2017, which forcibly ended two days after mostly likely due to a glitch where some players would receive a free ED Design Torq, A8Tokens 100, and A8Credits 25,000 automatically upon starting the R&D. It was "officially" revived on August 1st 2017, this time giving players only 3 days to join. Those who participated during the "glitch" period were not forced out of the R&D, but it was reported that the 3rd and 4th labs were re-locked.
