Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Set to Get New Nose and Rear
Changes to interior and engine likely as well
We've been head-over-heels with the Mercedes-AMG C63 S since its debut. Its powerful twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 produces growls, pops, and delivers plenty of torque. Yet, there's no rest for the wicked and Mercedes-AMG appears to be readying a mid-cycle update that will see a new face, new rear, and possibly some added oomph.
As you can see, Mercedes-AMG is currently testing a new front and rear fascia, new headlights, and according to our intrepid spies, some minor updates to the interior.
The front fascia sees small changes, although it does appear that it now uses some form of the AMG GT-R's active aerodynamics that funnel air-flow through the grille towards the engine or possibly the almost comically large carbon ceramic brakes.
In the back is a new bumper that doesn't appear significantly different, although the camouflage could be doing its job better than we'd like to admit. There appear to be revisions around the exhaust ports, but that's about it. What we can't tell is what, if any changes were made to the interior and engine.
Based on previous Mercedes-AMG mid-cycle refreshes, we're likely to see a few small details changed on the interior, but no significant revisions are expected. However, Mercedes-AMG does usually give their engines an uptick in power and torque. The current twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 mill develops a whopping 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque and feels absolutely monumental when you first put your foot down. However, that motor is very under-stressed as we've seen in the 577-horsepower AMG GT-R.
