MONSTER: The new C63 AMG Black Series will be powered by a 380kW 6.2l V8 engine

Our spy photographers snapped up images of the new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series undergoing testing in Germany.

The C63 AMG Black Series will be followed by a coupe variant.

Mercedes tips the coupe variant as a true successor to the CLK 63 AMG Black Series first shown in 2007.
