The top of the line version of the upcoming BMW X6 fighter, the Mercedes-Benz MLC63 AMG, has been recently caught on camera while it was being tested.
Mercedes-Benz has been testing out the new MLC for several months now so its development is no longer a surprise for anyone who is closely monitoring the automotive news but it seems that the company will not be waiting until the regular version of the coupe-like SUV will be hitting the market in order to start testing its top of the line AMG version as the model in question has been caught on camera recently, by our spy photographers.
From the images posted below, we can notice the single-bar engine grille, which is an AMG trademark, the quad exhaust setup and the stiff suspension system. Chances are that the model in question will be taking its power from a new engine, which is basically created by conjoining the M133 2-liter four-cylinder used on the A45 AMG, CLA45 AMG and GLA45 AMG. This will be transformed into a V8 which will develop between 476 HP and even 700 HP. The Mercedes-Benz MLC63 AMG should be officially unveiled sometimes in 2015, coming in as a 2016 model year vehicle.
