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.
