( Worldcarfans )- With the new C63 AMG Mercedes is aiming to break the 400 bhp mark in a C-class. Using the new 6.3 litre V8 detuned to about 420 bhp it will be an Autobahn rocket for sure.
While the new C-Class is official already, engineers at AMG still have to hide their little baby under disguise when driving some high speed tests at the famous Nurburgring in Germany.
They should really hurry up, because the German tuners Lorinser and Brabus have already shown their hot versions of the C-Class. But we guess that AMG wants to be sure that all pieces hold together when it is about to show the competitors its four fat pipes while overtaking and driving away.
Expect the C63 AMG to be revealed at the Frankfurt Car Show in September.
Pre-production of the next generation Mercedes C-Class station wagon is underway in Daimler-Chrysler's Bremen plant. It is scheduled for release in November this year.
This undisguised prototype of the estate got caught near the home base in Stuttgart.
The photos are showing 2 x the AMG and one shot of the wagon.
