Mercedes may have just debuted the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class in Detroit but we’re already looking ahead at what’s to come. According to Tobias Moers, AMG’s Product Chief, Mercedes’ BMW M3 rival, otherwise known as the Mercedes C63 is about a year away.
But knowing the C63 AMG is on its way isn’t enough, we want to know what kind of power the AMG will output. It looks like we can expect a new 4.0-litre turbocharged V8. “You are now familiar with our 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine? Well you can imagine what happens when you put two of those together,” Moers said.
Moers declined to discuss power output, but states that AMG’s tend to deliver a little more power than the competition. The new BMW M3 outputs 424bhp from its new turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine,which would put the all-new Mercedes C63 AMG output well over 450bhp in standard trim and over 500bhp with the optional Peformance Pack.
