The new Mercedes-Benz C-class C63 AMG is entering the final stages of development ahead of an expected reveal at the LA motor show in November, as these latest spy pictures show.
Set to become the first model in the new C63 AMG range to go on sale, likely at the start of next year, the saloon will be followed by coupé, estate and convertible versions which are planned to join the range before the end of 2016. Our latest look at the new hot C-class show the changes which will mark out AMG variants from the standard car.
Larger lower central and side air intakes can be seen on this test mule, as well as changes to the side skirts. At the rear, a new boot-mounted lip spoiler gives the car a sportier stance, while new quadruple exhaust exits and a redesigned rear bumper should give the C63 AMG saloon a more muscular appearance. New AMG wheel designs can also be seen.
As with the other planned C63 AMG variants, power for the performance saloon will come from a new twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine with close to 500bhp.
