The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is planning to introduce the new generation of the C63 AMG in late 2014.
The official announcement hasn’t been made just yet, but according to the guys at Autocar, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG should see daylight, in an official way, in late 2014. Our source is also saying that the model in question is believed to get a 4.0 liter twin-turbo gasoline engine under its hood, which should produce between 454 BHP (338 kW) and 493 BHP (367 kW). This should be mated to a 7G-MCT SpeedShift automatic transmission. This unit should eventually be implemented in all future AMG models.
We’re not sure if Mercedes-Benz will offer the new C63 AMG with an all-wheel drive 4MATIC version, but as we all learned over the years, never say never in this industry. In other related news, the new generation of the C-Class will be expanded in 2015, with the addition of the C300 Plug-In Hybrid. This should pack a 2.0 liter turbocharged direct injected gasoline burner, with 249 HP (185 kW), which should be backed up by a 67 HP (50 kW) electric motor. More details on the two models remain unknown for the moment.
