The W205 C63 AMG is set to use the brand-new 4.0L twin-turbo V8 that the AMG GT uses. It’s supposed to be more powerful, more efficient, and overall, just a better car … but there is just something missing: noise.
It’s time to celebrate the rarity that is a Benz-badged five-door harbinger of burnt rubber. Just a few days back, member “Z_de_Suisse” managed to squeeze a lovely, bone-stock, E63 AMG station wagon into his estate. How’s that for a wagon pun?
Personally, I think it sounds good, but it’s missing something. It’s missing the raucous noise that previously made AMG engines distinct.
Like lingerie falling to the floor of a cheap motel room in Atlanta on a humid evening, the W205 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG wagon continues to strip for us with heightened motivation.
Mercedes has found a gap to fill between the 333-horsepower C400 and the 450+/- horsepower C63. The undisguised C450 Sport AMG we spotted, and its 367-horsepower twin-turbo 3.0L V6 should fit within the wheel wells nicely.
Ladies and gentlemen, please bow your heads and join Chris Harris in a moment of silence. The introduction of the 2015 C-Class means its W204 iteration is not long for this world.

These Photos of the Week come from forum member “Dazzagt“. It’s a 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Wagon with the Black Series package, and it looks absolutely lethal in Fire Opal with red-lipped black wheels. If the Devil had a business conference to attend here on Earth, this would be his rental car … or it […]
From these Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Shooting Brake spy shots you can see the rendering we showed you last week was rather accurate. Sometimes we wonder why automakers go through all the effort of hiding their cars when we already know how they are going to look. Seemingly photographed from an underground extraterrestrial base on the moon, these […]
The plug-in hybrid segment gets a lot of attention these days as the trend-setting, cutting-edge portion of the automotive industry, but plug-in hybrids have been around for a long time, and in typical ahead-of-the-curve fashion, Mercedes-Benz experimented with a plug-in hybrid prototype way back in 1982. If you’re over 40, I would apologize for the […]
The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake treated itself to some cosmetic surgery and couldn’t wait to show its new look to the world. These spy shots pretty much reveal the CLS Shooting Brake’s facelift. For crying out loud, they’re a nip-slip away from full-frontal nudity. What is this, a Maxim photo shoot? These images arrive ahead […]
