This car is a more exciting version of the C-class sedan. The pictures were taken by a spy photographer in Europe. It is a scaled down version of the S63 AMG in the same way that the C-class is a smaller version of the S-class. The similarities include the LED headlamps, front air intakes and the rear diffuser that has quad exhaust tips. The bodywork is the same width but there are chunky brake discs and thin spoke wheels as well as a trunk lid spoiler. There is a horizontal blade that bisects the grille and the sir extractors on the front bumper of the outgoing C63 are not present in this model.
The pictures do not show the inside of the ca r but it is expected that it will have a flat bottom steering wheel and sports seats as well as lots of upgraded items. It is also expected to be the same as other AMG models with a gear selector on the centre console.
The C63 AMG will be competing with the BMW M3 and M4 as well as the Cadillac ATS-V. This will mean that it is an important car and is the main car in Mercedes performance car family. It will possibly come in a coupe and convertible form for America with a wagon for Europe as well as a Black series model.
The platform for the car will be based on the W205 C-class and will share architecture with the E and S-class sedans. It will have rear wheel drive but it is possible that there will be a 4MATIC all-wheel drive version later on.
It will have a downsized engine as the 2015 C63 AMG was very thirsty with its 6.2 litre V8 engine. It is expected that the output will increase to up to 500 horsepower which will put it a way above the M3 which has only 425. It will have just one transmission option which will be a seven shift speedshift automatic which instead of a torque convertor, has a multiplate clutch. There will be launch control and paddle shifters as well.
It is expected that the unveiling will not be far away as this is usually the case when they put a prototype with very little disguise out on the road. It is therefore thought that there will very soon be a photograph of the car as well as official information about it. It is expected that it will be in Paris in the autumn for the auto show there. IT is then expected that it will get to dealers in the first part of 2015 with the price being in low $60k range.
