    Mercedes will boost the output of the twin turbo M276 DELA 30 to 367 horsepower for the 2015 W205 C450 sport

    Mercedes-Benz decided that they need to bridge the gap between the C400 and the upcoming 2015 W205 C63 AMG. The new W205 AMG C-Class will offer something around 500 horsepower meaning that there is a lot of space between it and the 329 horsepower W205 C400. No word on what the torque figure rises to in the C450 but with 4Matic all wheel drive likely standard just like the C400 there should be no problem putting that power down.

    Now, should one really opt for the C450 considering the C400 has the same M276 DELA 30 turbocharged 3.0 liter V6? If the E63 AMG and E63 AMG S is to serve as precedent, no. The only difference in those models accounting for the increased output is software and even higher performance software is easily sourced through the aftermarket for far less money. The exact same trick Mercedes pulls with the E63 is likely happening here but until we get an official press release we will not know for sure.

    The same engine with 367bhp will make its way in 2015 gl450, as mercedes has been sying for a while that the v8 in gl450 will be replaced by the v6 with the same output as the v8. I was just hoping that 329bhp will be detuned in c400 and would be a bargain for some crazy bolt ons numbers.

    ^ I don't doubt the 450 getting this motor but would like an official source.

    Autoblog reading BenzBoost, nice:

    Considering that you could probably get the same boost out of an aftermarket ECU remap, though, Benz will need to offer a little extra in the form of upgraded rolling stock, suspension and trim to set it apart. The AMG Line exterior trim package pictured above would probably be a good place to start...

    Interesting. Wonder how much a C450 sport will weigh...

    Thinking of picking up a C400 for tuning development. Any dynojet results on them yet?

    I haven't seen much of anything. The Mercedes guys don't seem to be as aggressive as BMW owners. At least when it comes to tuning.
