The latest word on the street is suggesting that the long-awaited 2015 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG will debut on September 24th prior to a public unveiling at the Paris Motor Show 2014 in early October.
It is suggested that both the new C 63 AMG sedan and wagon variants will be revealed at the same time before deliveries of the sedan begin in February and April for the wagon.
Under the hood, we know for sure that the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG will feature the same 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine of the Mercedes-AMG GT albeit in a different tune. Currently codenamed M177, the new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 is predicted to produce between 480 hp and an incredible 580 hp depending on what specification is ordered. It will then be mated to the 7G-MCT SpeedShift automatic transmission currently used in a selection of other AMG models.
While the new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG is promising to be an incredible car to drive, there is some concern about how it will sound compared to the brutally loud 6.2-litre V8 powered car currently on sale. It will be interesting to see how Mercedes-Benz gets around this.
From a visual standpoint, expect the common AMG upgrades including more ostentatious bumpers, quad exhausts, sports wheels and new side skirts.
