In December we brought you the first spy photos of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, and once again, photos of the beautiful beast have been leaked.
Thanks to the new photos, we are able to see the more aggressive front fascia and updated grille as well as LED fog lights and new headlights. With a clear view of the back end, we are able to see that very few updates have been made other than updated tail lights and a restyled bumper.
The leak at Mercedes was not kind enought to give us a peak at the interior; however, the photos leaked in December showed updates similar to the standard C-Class. The AMG version will receive an AMG steering wheel, with deep black trim on the center console along with a heavily supported seat.
As for the engine, the power will continue to be provided by a naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 engine with 451 hp (336 kW / 457 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. To improve fuel efficiency and performance, there is a seven-speed ‘SpeedShift’ MCT transmission. The sporty sedan will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and average 12.0 L/100km or 19.6 mpg. The C63 AMG Estate goes from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and consumes an average of 12.3 L/100km or 19.1 mpg US.
