2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG to get new engine image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is planning to upgrade the 2014 C63 AMG with a new engine.

After the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, along with the E63 AMG, has been teased and partially unveiled, the smaller brother, the powerful C63 AMG, from the same model year, is now being placed into the spotlights for the first time, with a rumor which can’t be ignored. The guys at Autocar are saying that the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will get a whole new engine under its hood, which should replace the current naturally aspirated V8.

According to the source mentioned above, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will be powered by a new 4.0 liter V8 engine, which will produce a total output of 450 HP (335 kW) in its standard version, but in the top of the line variant, the unit should develop as much as 600 HP (447 kW). The new engine will be turbocharged and it should replace the naturally aspirated V8 found under the hood of the current C63 AMG. The power unit will be the same one used on the upcoming SLC too. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will get RWD and AWD versions and a right-hand drive variant. Additional details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
