• Next gen W206 C63 AMG expected be hybrid + 4Matic all wheel drive

      The current W205 C63 is unique in the sense that it is the only Mercedes-AMG sedan with an M177 V8 that is not all wheel drive. Well, that is expected to change with the next generation as AMG head Tobias Moers hints the C63 will get 4Matic all wheel drive.

      Not only that, but a hybrid system:

      If you apply proper intelligent hybridisation or electrification to a car which is capable of having an always-on strategy regarding the battery and the whole system, then itís amazing what you can get out of them. Which means for sure the next-generation Mercedes-AMG C63 will be a hybrid Ė thatís now a given.
      Well, expect a hybrid for certain. The all wheel drive portion isn't confirmed but he hinted that it was likely.

      A hybrid all wheel drive C63? Will the AMG GT be the only remaining RWD AMG?
