Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG to push 500 hp?

As competition heats up in the performance sporty sedan section, Lexus is getting ready to bring out the IS-F. BMW is already pleasing the crowd with their new 2008 BMW M3, and Audi is hard at work preparing the new Audi R4. With such a strong lineup on the way, Mercedes-Benz is really hoping to push the envelope with the next C63 AMG. How about with a 500 horsepower C63 AMG?

Auto Motor Sport is reporting that the next Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will be powered by a 6.3 liter V8 engine that is capable of producing up to 500 horsepower. It will also have a sexy back with four exhaust tail pipes.

No word on when the car will be unveiled but we’re putting our money on the Frankfurt Auto Show in September. Can’t wait to see how it looks.
