(continued from above)

As in 2008 to 2010, the C63 AMG Estate is the Official F1 Medical Car responsible for ensuring a rapid emergency response in the event of an accident. The super-fast estate car follows the Formula 1 field during the starting lap, because the race cars are still bunched extremely closely during this critical phase of the race.

The current version of the C63 AMG Estate will be used for the new season, with state-of-the-art design and engineering. Major new visual features include the aluminum bonnet with modified powerdomes, the radiator grille, the headlamps and the AMG rear apron. To ensure the best possible airflow to the radiator/coolers, the AMG front apron has larger intake apertures and side air vents.

C63 AMG Estate Formula 1 Medical Car Features AMG Performance Package

From now on, power is transmitted by the innovative AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sports transmission with a wet start-up clutch, four driving modes, a double-declutch and a RACE START function. Dynamic performance is guaranteed by the AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine, which now delivers 487 hp at 6,800 rpm in the Official F1 Medical Car. The increase in output versus the standard 457 hp engine is due to the AMG Performance Package, which is optionally available for any C63 AMG and makes an acceleration of 4.3 seconds from zero to 60 mph (Estate 4.4 sec.) possible. For the AMG Performance Package the engine specialists have placed their trust in a technology transfer from the SLS AMG: the forged pistons, connecting rods and lightweight crankshaft have been adopted from the gull-wing model. The lower inertia of the three-kilogram lighter components allows the naturally aspirated eight-cylinder engine to rev freely and respond even more promptly. Distinguishing features of the Performance Package include the variable intake manifold painted in titanium grey and the AMG high-performance braking system with internally ventilated composite brake discs at the front axle.

Outstanding driving dynamics are also ensured by the adjustable coil-over suspension, the AMG light-alloy wheels shod with size 235/35 R19 (front) and 255/30 R19 (rear) tires, the differential lock and 3-stage ESP. Maximum durability is provided by the optimized coolant, engine oil, transmission fluid and power steering fluid cooling. Invisibly but unmistakably, the characteristic AMG V8 sound issues from the special rear silencers of the AMG sports exhaust system.

Like the Official F1 Safety Car, the Official F1 Medical Car is distinguishable by its F1- logos, the roof light bar, and the stroboscopic flashing LED lights at the front and rear. A number plate illuminated with LEDs and displaying the words "Medical Car" on the tailgate makes the car easier to see in darkness or adverse weather conditions.
