The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG has been revealed on the company’s German website. It will be available in C 63 AMG and C 63 AMG S variants, with each providing separate specs and engine power.

Styled as a more athletic and more muscular version of the latest C-Class, the new model incorporates all of the trademark styling cues. There’s the quad-outlet exhausts at the back, a subtle bodykit with front and rear wings, and discreet vents in each corner.

What’s under the bonnet is of course the most important part. There sits a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, downsized and turbocharged from the outgoing naturally aspirated 6.2 V8. It produces 350kW and 650Nm in the regular version. Meanwhile, the new AMG S develops 375kW and 700Nm as previously reported.

Both versions are matched up to a seven-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive. Acceleration from 0-100km/h takes 4.2 seconds in the standard model and 4.1 seconds in the S. Top speed is limited to 250km/h in both.

Underneath, drivers will appreciate the AMG Ride Control sports suspension setup with three different damper settings, while braking performance is optimised thanks to 360mm front and 330mm rear brakes.

For the keener drivers the AMG S model comes with an electronic-locking differential, composite brake discs, dynamic engine mounts, and unique lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside it’s a typically plush yet luxurious and advanced AMG Mercedes-. There’s leather and microfibre for the sports seats, a bespoke AMG instrument cluster, a flat-bottomed sports steering wheel, and a infotainment interface will full connectivity.

More details and images are expected to be released very soon. Australian prices and arrival dates will probably be revealed a bit further down the track.
