The Mercedes-AMG C43 Coupé has been revealed at Geneva. It's the second AMG model in the C-Class Coupé line-up, and is powered by a 362bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine.
Making its public premiere alongside the new C-Class Cabriolet, prior to a planned start to UK sales later this year, the four-wheel-drive C43 4Matic Coupe joins the rear-wheel-drive C63 Coupe in a two-pronged assault by AMG on the likes of the BMW M4 and upcoming second-generation Audi RS5.
The C43 4Matic Coupe is the second in what Mercedes-Benz says will be an extended range of six-cylinder powered AMG models to be unveiled in 2016. It follows the SLC43, which made its world debut at the Detroit motor show in early January.
The six-cylinder AMG models were originally sold under the 450 Sport name, beginning with the C450 Sport saloon and estate launched in the UK last year. However, Mercedes-Benz and its AMG performance car division has subsequently decided to replace the 450 Sport name with the resurrected 43 nomenclature first used on the C43 AMG back in 1997.
