    • Upcoming 2015/2016 W205 C63 AMG spotted testing on the Nurburgring and looking mean

      The new W205 C-Class is a beautiful design evoking many of the design elements of its more expensive lineup siblings. The C300 and C400 look great but what we are really waiting to see is the top of the line high performance C63 AMG variant. It's coming and it is looking quite aggressive. The styling changes of course include the AMG bodywork including the integrated rear diffuser featuring the AMG angled quad exhaust tips.

      The front gets the more aggressive AMG single bar style grille. The fenders for whatever reason are the only area lacking in increased aggression as there does not appear to be any additional flaring for bigger meat. Is Mercedes AMG saving that sort of aggression that for a Black Series variant?

      As reported dozens of times already expect the M177 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 under the hood mated to a rear wheel drive powertrain and an automatic transmission. Horsepower should be close to 500 but has yet to be finalized.

        Thats my first impression today, then I saw the front of the car...and it looks cheap IMO. Strange front grill, jagged edged front spoiler, and Kia like halo lights. Seriously I didn't like the side or front of the car at all.

        I'm wrong yet you post rear and side pics? Ha. The front of the c7 sucks. Sorry...the front grill is 4 foot wide and has no thought put into the design, the cheesy halo's look like a Kia and those weird pointy edges off the nose look terrible. I'm sorry and it's only my opinion but it reminds me of the design of a new camaro or caddy, looks great the first year it's out but not a timeless design.

        Thank you, Stick.............looks like the current-gen C63 is even porkier than what I thought.

        Then again, I'd say we have extremely low bodyfat. Yeah, 4-5%, tops. Click here to enlarge The M156 means we're very muscular, but fit & trim.

        But has my nose grown?

        No, all the new Mercs look half melted to me.

        I think the new designs are absolutely awesome and modern. The W204 looks dated.

        It's rear wheel drive. No 4Matic plans at the moment.

        It's looking good. This is going to be a hell of car.

        Just as quiet as the AMG GT though, interesting.
