Mobile phone images showing the interior of the upcoming 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG have leaked online with them showing some of the changes set to be adopted by the performance oriented C-Class model.
First and foremost, a photo showing the gauges shows that the new 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine revs to 7000 rpm in the C63 AMG with the speedometer also topping out at 320 km/h. Elsewhere, a flat-bottomed steering wheel is feature along with an advanced surround sound system from Burmester.
Under the hood, we know that the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG sedan 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 C63 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.
Visually, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will receive brand new bumpers which are much more sporty and aggressive than used on existing C-Class models
