Mercedes-AMG is all set to drive in the production version of the new C63 this week. The German auto giant teased the upcoming model two days before the official unveiling. The 2023 C63 will ditch the V8 engine and instead will be offered with a plug-in hybrid version mated to a 2.0-litre unit. It will also come with Mercedes-AMG’s E Performance branding. The C63 model, which will become the flagship performance model in the C-Class range, was showcased as a prototype earlier this year when it made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.

The Mercedes-AMG C43 4Matic is currently the most powerful and also the only AMG version of the C-Class. Unlike the previous C43, the current model no longer has a 3.0-litre V6 engine. The upcoming Mercedes-AMG model is more powerful than its twin-turbo V8-powered predecessor. The plug-in hybrid powertrain in the upcoming Mercedes-AMG model is capable of generating a combined maximum output of 661 hp and 750 Nm of peak torque.
