2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG officially confirmed with new AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine

Article by Christian A., on September 18, 2014

Earlier this year we reported that Mercedes-Benz will unveil the new C63 AMG in October, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. We also told you that the new high-performance vehicle will ditch the naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V8 engine found on the current version in favor of the all-new M178 twin-turbo V8 that made its debut on the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT.

Today, Mercedes-Benz officially confirmed that the C63 AMG successor will indeed use the new AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine that powers the Mercedes-AMG GT. What’s more interesting is that the engine will deliver up to 510 hp (375 kW) and 700 Nm of torque, which means that we will see a more powerful C63 AMG, possibly an S model or the Black Series version.

The engine will be bolted to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission with three driving modes and double-declutching function. If you don’t remember, the current V8 engine found on the C63 AMG delivers 457 hp and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque.

The vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds while top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h. Mercedes-Benz offers the Performance Package which increases the power by 30 hp to 487 hp, which reduces the acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds.

The next-generation C63 AMG will be more powerful and faster than its predecessor. More details to be revealed soon!
