The 2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will make its debut on September 24 and it appears that the high-performance model is in the final testing phase. Recently, photographers snapped the 2016 C63 AMG Estate on the Nurburgring and if you look at the video you’ll see that the new vehicle is definitely a very fast car.

Also, the new twin-turbo V8 engine seems to do a good job and deliver a proper sound. For those who don’t know, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG will use the all-new M178 V8 twin-turbo engine that will be found on the upcoming 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT, which will be introduced on September 9.

On the brand new coupe, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine will produce between 461 and 510 hp. On the new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, the engine is expected to deliver only 450 hp. Although the engine will be less powerful than the outgoing 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V8, the new C63 AMG will be lighter and faster.

For those who don’t know, the 6.3-liter V8 engine delivers 457 hp as well as 600 Nm of torque and it is able to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, all the way to a top speed of 155 mph or 250 km/h. With the optional Performance Package, power is increased to 487 hp, reducing the acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds.

On Friday, we also revealed you folks the first images featuring the interior of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. The photos showed new AMG sport bucket seats, a redesigned steering wheels with silver-painted paddle shifters, a 320 km/h (200 mph) speedometer and a speedometer limited at 8,000 rpm as well as a Burmester premium audio system and the new touchpad.

The exterior is expected to feature a new front bumper with big air intakes, enlarged fenders, side sills, as well as a new rear bumper with integrated exhaust system. In addition, the vehicle will feature new wheels, hiding large brake discs and new brake calipers fitted with the AMG logo.

Mercedes-Benz is also expected to offer an S version of the C63 AMG, which will be more powerful and will feature the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. In October, the 2016 C63 AMG will be officially introduced to the public at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, so stay tuned!
