Look at the possibly A45 Mercedes-AMG C63 engine

The story goes that the then AMG boss Tobias Moers left the meeting room when the inline four future of the Mercedes C63 was decided. We understand why – one of the AMG C’s biggest selling points is its gurgling 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, but we still hope the four-pot version works just fine.

That’s it, we’re pretty sure. At the beginning of the year some kind of AMG’d W206 C-Class was discovered, but the brakes on these look a bit more powerful, and instead of oval tailpipes – like the current C63 – it has trapezoidal exits.

Exhaling through these pipes is probably a further development of the single turbo inline four ‘M139’ of the Mercedes-AMG A45 S. No other Mercedes four-pot comes close to its performance, although with 416 PS it is still a long way off the 503 PS, which the V8 in the current C63 S offers.

With four fewer cylinders and one less turbo, this has a weight advantage, but additional power may be required. Aftermarket companies have shown the A45 engine to deliver well over 416 horsepower, but it certainly can’t be pushed any further under strict OEM tolerances. With that in mind, AMG can add some form of electrification to make up for the deficit.

There are a lot of unknowns about what’s going on under the hood, but there are some clearer things that we can see from the spy gunfire. Along with those hefty brakes (steel, but carbon-ceramic will undoubtedly be an option), the prototype has widened wheel arches, a rear diffuser, and additional front vents.

We’ll wait a while to see the C63 without a camouflage – the brand new standard C-Class won’t be revealed until early 2021, which means the AMG will stick with us until the end of this year the least. Even so, there is still enough time to grab a brand new V8 version should the four-pot not suit you so well.
