New 2023 Mercedes AMG C63 Teased Ahead of Its Debut!

2023 Mercedes AMG C63 Teased – Overview

Before this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed,

AMG brought a near-production prototype of the C63 that was only lightly covered.

Now, the sports sedan is going to be unveiled.

There isn’t much we don’t know about the BMW M3 rival, but we’re interested to see how those intriguing technological details will translate into performance in the real world.

In contrast to its rear-wheel-drive predecessor, the subsequent model will only be offered with 4Matic.

The V8 is now officially a thing of the past to address the big issue in the room.

The folks from Affalterbach have repeatedly repeated that the 2.0-litre M139 from the “45” models will be used in the new C63, but with higher power and longitudinal mounting.

So yes, the vehicle will be a plug-in hybrid. A 6.1 kWh battery will supply power to a rear-mounted electric motor.

Although purists will undoubtedly be unhappy with the cylinder count reduction, the flagship C-Class should still be brisk, thanks to its combined 670 horsepower.

We can only hope that the C63 Estate will be revealed; this hot wagon will compete against the M3 Touring, a brand-new competitor.

Aside: New M cars will also be plug-in hybrids starting in 2023.

On the other hand, the Bavarians promise to continue with the inline-six and V8 until at least 2030 and have no plans to reduce the size of their combustion engines.

Given its PHEV design, the AMG C63 should have a fully electric range, but given how small the battery will be, the combustion engine will engage sooner rather than later.

Weight is a worry since the four-cylinder engine is lighter than the original V8; the hybrid-related components will undoubtedly add weight.

It wouldn’t surprise us if it were significantly heavier than its predecessor.

Wednesday, September 21, is the planned date for the world premiere.

However, due to the two-door C-Class and E-Class models combining to become the CLE, AMG will not be releasing another C63 Coupe and Cabriolet.
