The all-new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has been spied testing in Germany, boosting anticipation of a Paris motor show unveiling this October.
Apart from the colour, though, the car in the latest spy shots is also equipped with different headlights and different alloy wheels wrapped in high-performance Michelin rubber.
Clearly visible, despite the light camouflage, are large front air intakes, rear bumper vents, a small boot-lip spoiler and a quad-pipe exhaust system – a rear diffuser seen on the previously spied grey car has been deleted.
Confirmed by the German car maker earlier this year, a new twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 with at least 336kW will power the new C63, with numbers likely to rise to around 373kW when teamed with an optional performance pack.
An all-wheel-drive 4Matic variant also remains under a cloud of speculation.
Expected to be lighter than the 1716kg naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8–powered outgoing model (delivering 373kW and 610Nm in Edition 507 guise), the new C63 AMG will be targeting to match or improve on the current car’s 4.2-4.5sec 0-100km/h time.
The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has long been tipped to make its public debut on October 4 at this year’s Paris motor show.
