Mercedes let it slip that the C63 Coupe will soon find its way to dealer lots. Check out what we think it’ll have to offer.

Despite the fact that we haven’t even began seeing pre-production prototypes or even mules for the upcoming Coupe variant of the C-Class, it seems that the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe may be set for an unveil as early as the fall of 2015, at least according to a recent report from Auto Express. Citing an unnamed Mercedes-Benz insider, who somehow decided to spill the beans to the British magazine at the Detroit Auto Show, Auto Express says that the C63 Coupe will be launched at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September.

So far, only prototypes of the first-ever C-Class Cabriolet have been caught on camera, despite the fact that its Coupe brother should essentially launch before it, as per Mercedes-Benz tradition. Either way, this would be the second generation of the C-Class Coupe and the second time that it receives an AMG variant as well. Compared with the first C63 AMG Coupe, the new model will get a different moniker, a new type of engine and will be much more differentiated from its sedan brother in terms of styling.

The new moniker will happen because of a recent change in naming strategy at AMG, with the future model’s full name to be “Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.” Also mucking up the name a little is the fact that its engine will no longer be the rumbling 6.2-liter V-8, but rather the new 4.0-liter, biturbo V-8 found in the 2015 C63 and C63 S sedan. Unlike the first generation, which was introduced as a quick after-thought in the lineup, the new C-Class Coupe will benefit from a highly distinctive look, in the same way that the S-Class Coupe is a bit more than just a two-door S-Class.
