KUALA LUMPUR:  The updated versions of the Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 S sedan and coupe have been launched in the country. The models were globally revealed last year in the month of March. There are a few styling changes on the outside that are noticeable on both the models including the front AMG Panamericana grille and a single slat design on the air inlet at the A-wing lower apron. Earlier it was a diamond mesh design. Additionally, there is a rear diffuser with four vertical fins instead of three, seems to be an expensive add-on.
