2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series
One of the 66 UK-supplied, right-hand drive C63 Black Series, finished in Iridium Silver with black leather/Alcantara. Owned by Mercedes-Benz Brooklands and one private owner since with just 17,392 miles covered from new.
The legendary M156 6.2-litre V8 made the W204 AMG C-Class an iconic car in its own right, but the Black Series took the concept to its most extreme, track-focussed edge. A race car for the road. With wider track, coil-over suspension, lightweight engine internals and reprogrammed ECU.
510bhp ensured staggering performance combined with razor-edge handling. Suffice to say the Black Series was limited to 188mph.
As with all Black Series cars production was limited with 600 built worldwide and just 66 right-hand drive examples registered in the UK.
Whilst it is a matter of personal taste, we very much prefer the Black Series without the over-the-top aerodynamics kit and rear wing. However, it has Comand Online with media interface, limited slip differential and privacy glass on top of the already extensive specification.
This Black Series was owned by Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands from registration on 03/07/12 until 2017 and has had one keeper since. It comes with all its original books/manuals and keys.

The condition is absolutely exceptional throughout, in line with its low mileage and impeccable history.
As one of the last large capacity, naturally aspirated AMGs, together with being one of the 66 right-hand drive Black Series, its collectability is already assured. A true modern classic.
