These include restyled front and rear bumpers, a twin-blade radiator grille, 19-inch AMG alloy wheels, AMG badges and an AMG exhaust system with chrome plated pipes. It has an aluminium bonnet and LED headlamps with integrated daytime running lights and LED tail lamps.

Default Mercedes-AMG C63 S launched in India at 1.3Cr

Was surprised to find no thread to discuss this news.
The launch happened on September 3.
"Mercedes-Benz India has announced the launch of the Mercedes-AMG C 63 in Delhi today, which is available in the C63 S variant only. It is priced from INR 1.34 crores (ex-showroom New Delhi)."

This is what we need in the country now. Mercedes needs to launch this car, because we've missed out on the old coupe.

The old coupe wasn't was well designed and probably would not have much takers anyway. However, this new one is just great to look at, much better proportioned than the previous generation that it replaced.
The C coupe has been an eye sore design right from the first generation C coupe that came in 2000, next one was better and with this latest 3rd gen one Merc got it just right, finally!
I would pick a coupe C63S over a sedan any day. After living with a coupe as my daily drive for the past nearly 3 years now, the merits of throwing it around corners trumps the advantage of two back doors in a sedan. The handling and maneuverability of a coupe is much better!
