The M113 supercharged 5.4 L V8 engine was mated to the Speedshift 5-speed automatic transmission,
which has a torque capacity of 796 lb·ft (1,079 N·m), as the newer 7G-Tronic introduced in 2003 is limited to 542 lb·ft (735 N·m), not enough to handle the torque from the supercharged V8.
Assembling and the tuneup are AMG, but the basis is Mercedes-Benz.
The image of AMG as the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz is reflected in its impressive successes in the world of motorsports and its unique approach to creating
high-performance on-road vehicles, like the C63 coupe above.
The AMG brand promise of “Driving Performance” stands for state-of-the-art technology
and pure driving excitement.
