The new C-Class is borrowing some hardware from the newest Mercedes sports cars, packing that new turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 under its hood.
Mercedes’ M3 fighter will have either 469 hp or 503 hp in the C63 AMG S, which should be more than enough to keep up with the BMW in a straight line.
But in terms of handling, AMG has enhanced the C-Class quite a bit. A number of driver modes are available, enabling adjustments of the engine and transmission mounts, as well as the suspension for enhanced handling.
While US pricing hasn’t been announced, you should watch the video below to see what is coming from the brand with the three-pointed star.
