Mercedes is launching its new weapon for DTM supremacy, a competition that faces the STuttgart-based manufacturer with its main German rivals, Audi and BMW. Mercedes reveals the  new car that they will enter for the 2016 campaign.
 
Design adaptations to the 2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM first began last year. The dynamic-looking headlights and the twin blade grille typical of the AMG are two of the car's most striking features. The first tests with the new vehicle will take place during the winter as part of preparations for the 2016 season.

The graphic design of the IAA-launch version of the 2016 DTM car has also served as inspiration for special models of the new Mercedes AMG C 63 Coupé and the C 63 S Coupé which are available as Edition 1 market launches.
Due to the regulations, changes to the aerodynamics below what is known as the design line are not permitted. The vehicle's aerodynamics above the design line will be adapted to the new shape.
 
There will be though aerodynamic modifications to front splitter and side panels, flat bottom, front and rear diffusers, rear wing. The chassis is a Carbon fibre monocoque with steel roll cage, front, lateral and rear crash structures, bonnet, doors, side panels and wings in carbon fibre.
 
“The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé will again set new standards for driving dynamics and design. So, the vehicle provides the ideal basis for our DTM car,” said Head of Mercedes-AMG DTM Ulrich Fritz. “I’m already looking forward to seeing the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM compete in 2016. Our aim with this vehicle is, of course, to continue the Mercedes-Benz success story in the DTM.”
