Mercedes-AMG C63 successor to be hybrid – Tobias Moers

While rival German carmakers have ditched sonorous V8 engines for blown six-cylinder options, at least in the small performance segment, Mercedes-AMG has stayed the course with the rear-drive C63 – at least for now. With stringent emissions requirements needing to be met by all manufacturers, as well as the fast-track to electrification, the days of AMG twin-turbo V8s seem numbered...

2018 Mercedes-AMG C63 revealed

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled its facelifted C63 range in New York, with a mildly overhauled exterior and a tech-heavy interior but, in shocking news, no more power. What's going on in Affalterbach? Power comes from the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as before, making the same 350kW and 650Nm in 'base trim', or 375kW and 700Nm in range-topping C63 S guise...

The manufacturer reports pulling away on wet roads could see the vehicle's drivetrain experience torque peaks. If the condition occurs, it could lead to the failure of the drive-shaft, resulting in a "loss of propulsion"...

Part of the forthcoming mid-life facelift for the wider Mercedes-Benz C-Class range, the AMG C63 seen here sports camouflaged bumpers and a disguised front grille, which points us to what changes are on the way...

Mercedes-AMG Festival of Snow

What if I told you Mercedes-Benz is paying, for you, to go learn how to drive and drift on snow? You'd immediately rush to sign up, right? Thought so. Well, alright, the brand isn't exactly picking up the bill, but the Mercedes-AMG snow experience – held in Queenstown, New Zealand, arguably the most beautiful location on Earth – is at least heavily subsidised...

Mercedes-AMG Old v New: 2017 AMG C63 S v 1996 C36 AMG

There's never a bad time to taste some old-school performance, but is anything from the 1990s old enough to be retro cool, yet? That's the question we explore here, looking back at a 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG - right alongside today's hero, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S. And no doubt, the '90s was a decade to remember...
