History of Mercedes-AMG C43 Coupe AMG 4MATIC Premium Plus
Mercedes-AMG started 40 years ago as an independent racing and tuning company for Mercedes cars and has since developed into a supplier of exclusive high-performance cars with 600 staff, an extensive model range, and customers worldwide.
When the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, also known by its internal code name, W202, succeeded the 190 series in 1993, AMG introduced the Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG, the first vehicle jointly produced and born out of the partnership. It was backed by a full Mercedes-Benz warranty and service organization. Production of this 282-horsepower, six-cylinder screamer was limited to just under 1,000 cars over three years due to initial demand.
The C36 AMG was followed in 1998 by the C43 AMG, the first V8-powered C-Class model in the United States. Customers demanded more AMG models, so Mercedes-Benz and AMG responded with the E55 AMG, followed by a slew of high-performance Mercedes-Benz models from the company’s expanding lineup.
Throughout its history, the humble C-Class has been a bread-and-butter of its company, one designed to bring people into the brand and get them hooked on the three-pointed star. With the exception of the red seatbelts and matching stitching, the interior is understated, which matches this versatile four-door coupe/saloon. The interior space is surprising, with plenty of room in the back and a large boot.
Mercedes-Benz’s models are still hot sellers for those looking for something even more luxurious. The 43 is Mercedes-Benz’s response to a customer’s need for affordable luxury. It is powered by a bi-turbo 3.0-L V6 engine with AMG enhancements that produce 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet torque. The AMG C43 accelerates from zero to sixty miles per hour in 4.6 seconds, about a second faster than the 300. The Mercedes-AMG C43 is offered in three trim levels; Sedan, Soupe, and Cabriolet.
With a market share of over 40%, the United States is now the world’s largest AMG vehicle market. The opening of new production, construction, and showroom buildings at Mercedes-AMG’s Affalterbach plant has helped its product line grow.
