2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG keeps its 451-hp 6.2L V8

2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

What you’re seeing here are leaked images of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, which will make its official debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. We’ll bring you full high-res photos along with a full press release when we get our hands on it but for now – this will have to suffice.

Looks wise the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG gets the same upgrades as the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class but of course, AMG added some modifications to make it more aggressive than its standard siblings. On the inside, it’s pretty much the same story as the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class with an upgraded dash that carries a 5.8 inch display.

Power wise, you won’t see the new downsized twin-turbo 5.5L V8 in the 2012 C63 AMG. Instead, the 2012 C63 AMG keeps its 6.2L V8 making 451-hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. AMG engineers, however, did at the new 7-speed Speedshift MCT automatic, which allows 0-60 mph to come in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 174 mph.

We’ll bring you official details as soon as we can.
