It can be confirmed that Mercedes-Benz will offer a new C-Class variant to sit in between the current range-topping C400 and the soon to be revealed C 63 AMG. This new version will be dubbed the Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport.
Under the hood, the C450 AMG Sport will feature the same basic twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine as the current C400 rather than a detuned version of the upcoming C 63 AMG’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. Thanks to some moderate upgrades to the C400’s engine, it is believed the Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport will deliver some 367 hp or 34 hp more than the C400.
Unlike the next C 63 AMG which will most likely be available solely in rear-wheel drive guise, the C450 AMG Sport will be available both in rear-wheel drive and Mercedes-Benz’s all-wheel drive 4Matic system.
The new Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport will reportedly debut sometime next year.
