Mercedes finally has released the first sketches of the 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe DTM racecar. The new designs were unveiled during one of the last DTM races of the year in Moscow. The new Mercedes-AMG will be the latest in a series of C-Class racing vehicles that have secured 85 victories for Mercedes over the course of 159 races.
The car depicted in these drawings is scheduled to participate in the 2016 race season. As per the current DTM regulations, all cars regardless of the manufacturer are powered by a 4.0 liter V8 engine with four valves per cylinder.
The former road-going Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG cars were powered by a larger 6.2 liter V8 engine; AMG had to downsize the DTM variants to 4 liters. The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 DTM car will not have to undergo that process as the road-going version is already powered by a 4.0 liter V8 unit albeit turbocharged.
The New Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe powered by a V8 engine are expected to run for the last time in the 2016 season.
