Mercedes-Benz introduced a highly modified V8 engine in the C-Class with a pair of turbo chargers to perform like a true Mercedes-Benz

It’s the prime but not primary of a new-generation, with trimming down the previously concealed engine by Mercedes-Benz, however, the brand new Mercedes-AMG C63 is excellent enough to expressively jolting the BMW M3 and Audi RS4.

Out is the historical over-sized V8, squeezed forcefully into the engine bay, changed with a so much smaller unit, nonetheless with eight cylinders but supplemented with the aid of a pair of turbochargers.

Mercedes-Benz Engines Efficiency

Its turbocharger that hooked up with in the top of this 4.0-litre V8 engine. The brand new Mercedes C63 AMG produces 469bhp and 650Nm of torque. That last figure is on hand from 1,750rpm starts coming from 4,500rpm, so the power band of efficiency is aptly wide, and the C63 as a rule feels outrageously flexible.

In opposition to the clock the efficiency, the saloon will accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds, whilst customers who require the extra practicality of the estate model will take just one-tenth longer, the coupe is the quickest of the three and can reach the limit in just 4 seconds.

Flexible Engines

If efficiency is supreme, the Mercedes-AMG C63 S has another 34bhp and 50Nm, making this already flexible engine much more rapid in its responses.

There’s a tenth of a second lopped-off the zero-62mph too, though both are restricted to 155mph until you specify the AMG Driver’s package deal which raises this to 180mph and involves circuit-based lessons.

Which should I buy one?

Regardless of which you opt for, each comes with Mercedes’ seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, with paddle-shifters behind the steering wheel. Quick to react in manual mode, and an educated at slurring between gears in automated, if simplest it wasn’t controlled by way of that archetypal Mercedes column stalk.

On paper it’s a C63 minus two cylinder, but guarantees to offer a lot more because of the 9G-TRONIC computerized transmission (two more gears than its bigger brother) and not more weight over the entrance axle for improved agility.You get 362bhp and 520Nm from the three-litre V6, plus a rear biased version of Mercedes’ 4MATIC all-wheel pressure, and a 0-62mph time of four.7 seconds – about half of a 2d off the C63.
