Optional Equipment from the AMG Performance Studio

The C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series DTM Safety Car is equipped with the AMG Track package, the AMG Aerodynamics package, the AMG Exterior Carbon-Fiber package and forged AMG light-alloy wheels. The AMG Track package comprises active rear axle gear cooling and sports tires. The radiator is positioned in front of the diffuser insert in the rear apron, where it effectively takes in the air stream. The specially developed Dunlop Sport Maxx Race sports tires in size 255/35 R19 at the front and 285/30 R19 at the rear are fitted on forged AMG wheels which are painted matt black with a high-sheen rim flange.

The AMG Aerodynamics package includes so-called flics and a functionally designed genuine carbon-fiber front splitter on the front apron, plus a fixed carbon-fiber rear aerofoil with adjustable blade. All three components provide the vehicle with a sharper profile while optimizing its aerodynamic balance. The AMG Exterior Carbon-Fiber package covers exterior mirror housings, the inserts in the side sill panels and a diffuser insert in genuine carbon fiber. All optional equipment items come from the AMG Performance Studio and are available ex-factory for every C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series.

Functional Race-Track Atmosphere in the Interior

The interior also corresponds to the series production model, with a few exceptions. The two AMG sports bucket seats ensure optimum lateral support for driver and co-driver. In view of the intended deployment on the race track, four-point seat belts are used. Optimum control of the vehicle is guaranteed by the AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA with flattened top and bottom rim sections and aluminum gearshift paddles.

AMG carbon-fiber trim featuring the "AMG Black Series" logo underscores the functional race-track atmosphere. For communication with the race organizers, the Safety Car is equipped with a two-way radio system and TV monitor. The camera located next to the rear license plate provides the co-driver with a view of the DTM cars following the Safety Car. Under the monitor there are four buttons in blue, green, orange and silver for operating the light bar, the stroboscope-type flashing LED lights and the horn.
