Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate spied

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate prototype

This is the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate, which has been spied recently in Germany.

It’s awesome to see Mercedes will continue the C63 model line with the new C Class range. Except it won’t be a “63” at all. No, the old and much loved 6.2 litre normally aspirated V8 will be making way for a 4.0 litre V8 with a pair of turbochargers for good measure.

Peak power is predicted to start at 331kW (450hp) but as is the norm with forced induction you can expect the AMG boffins to provide a range of factory-backed power enhancements. We can start the bidding at 368kW (500hp), but we all know Mercedes will go beyond that!

Mercedes says it will be sticking with the C63 badge, too, even though it will have no relevance to the car’s engine. Just like a BMW, then!
