Tired of your oh-so-boring 367-horsepower C55 AMG? There’s hope: Mercedes’ next C‑Class will be available in C63 guise with AMG’s sophisticated new 6.3-liter V-8. The engine is capable of pumping a massive 520 horsepower, but likely to be tamed to around 400 to 420 hp for the C-Class sedan. That’s still in line with BMW’s new M3, and an increase of around ten percent over today’s model.
We expect the new C63 AMG to break out just after the standard C’s launch in Frankfurt next year, with a possible introduction at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.
