Not long after the rest of the lineup was facelifted, the facelift for the hardcore, AMG-tuned variant of Mercedes’ C-Class has been leaked.
Visually, it’s treated to essentially the same treatment as the bread-and-butter variations of the C-Class, with a revamped front end. The car is also said to receive Mercedes’ latest seven-speed automatic transmission and a launch control function.
However, what we’re interested in is whether or not Mercedes has replaced the 6.2L V8 with their new, twin-turbocharged 5.5L unit. While we’ll have to wait for official word to know for sure, speculation suggests that the 6.2L V8 will remain in the sedan, while the upcoming C63 AMG Coupe will receive the 5.5L V8.
