Since its inception, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has been one of the meanest sedans on the road. Sporting muscular styling, performance-tuned suspension and a brutal V8 putting out 451 horsepower, this modern-day muscle car has garnered praise for its performance. Now it has a svelte new sibling.

Mercedes-Benz announced the 2012 C63 AMG coupe on Monday ahead of its public debut at next month's New York International Auto Show. The high-performance AMG C-Class will complete the roll out of the model's two-door variant, which began at the Geneva Auto Show earlier this month with the unveiling of the C250 and C350 coupe.

Unsurprisingly, the C63 AMG coupe's specs roughly match its sedan counterpart. Like the sedan, the C63 AMG coupe will also produce 451 horsepower from a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine, use a 7-speed automatic transmission, and sprint from 0 to 60mph in roughly 4.4 seconds. It also runs to an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph, characteristic of many high-performance German cars. But there's more on tap if you desire.

Opt for the AMG Development Package when choosing your C63 AMG Coupe and you'll have even more brawn at your disposal. The performance upgrade boosts horsepower to 481, drops 0-to-60 acceleration by a tenth of a second, and takes the top speed up to 174 mph. It also comes with a carbon-fiber trunk lid spoiler and red painted brake calipers, the only two visual distinctions signaling the package's extra might. The AMG Development Package is also available for the sedan, adding just over $6,000 to the price.

Exterior modifications over the standard model are also in line with the sedan, including upgraded wheels, flared side skirts, a more aggressive front end, AMG badging and a distinctive black rear diffuser.

Mercedes-Benz says interested parties should expect the C63 AMG coupe in showrooms by September. Pricing has yet to be set, but we'd expect it to be in the ballpark of the sedan, which starts around $58,000.
