According to Mercedes, the C 63 AMG is the most popular AMG model ever created. Not content to stop at that, the firm has today released new Saloon and Estate versions of the car. As well as being more powerful, faster and greener, the new models include the fastest Mercedes C-Class ever produced.

The C 63 was originally launched in 2008 as the flagship C-Class model. Although the naming convention may have changed (new AMG models are referred to as Mercedes-AMG, rather than tagging the AMG suffix on at the end), the high-performance nature of the AMG models has not.

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 models feature a new hand-built 3,982-cc biturbo V8 engine, which Mercedes says is is more powerful, smaller, lighter and 32 percent more efficient than its predecessor. Indeed, Mercedes says that the C 63 is the most fuel-efficient eight-cylinder, high-performance vehicle in the world. This new M177 engine is closely related to the M178 found in the new Mercedes-AMG GT.

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Estate accelerates from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.1 seconds

The M177 will produce 476 hp and 650 Nm (480 ft lb) in the standard C 63 versions or, tuned up into its S guise, will produce 510 hp and 700 Nm (516 ft lb) of torque. It is the S version of the C 63 Saloon in which this is most telling, allowing the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.0 seconds. In the C 63 S Estate this take 4.1 seconds, whilst in the standard versions it takes 4.1 and 4.2 seconds respectively. All of the models are limited to a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

In addition to the new engine, the C 63 features an updated AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed transmission that is said to provide faster gear-shifting. It has four-link suspension and independent steering knuckles at the front, with independent mounts and an increase in negative camber at the rear. The suspension is linked to the AMG Ride Control system that allows the driver to adjust the car's settings. Looks-wise, the car features new front and rear bumpers, a newly modeled bonnet, wider front wings and new quad exhaust pipes.

The Mercedes-AMG C 63 will premiere next month at the Salon de l’Automobile in Paris and will be available from 2015.

First It Looked Too Much Like The S CLass Now It Looks Almost Indistinguishable From CLA Class ! What's Wrong with Mercedes Benz , it's Like They're Turning Into Aston Martin or Porsche , Making one Design and calling it different things ! Half a decade ago these cars were seamless in every way possible , they had the most astonishing designs and they were Special and Unique for each Class of Mercedes Cars .... Now They All Looks Like each other , and They Don't Really look as good as they used to be...... A Thumbs Down For Mercedes Benz Designing...... All Engines Are Turbocharged And More Polar Bear Friendly , I Just Hope There are no Turbo Lags or Annoying Turbo Screeching Noises , And Engines are Smaller , I Thought German Car Makers are supposed to be High performance high end Manufacturers not Eco and Polar Bear Loving , I know Mecredes is also Smart and efficient an all ,i'm just saying i like the sporty side of MB and I Just Hope this new smaller turbocharged engine is as good as the Sublime 6.2L V8 There is No Replacement For Displacement ....
