Mercedes-AMG has today confirmed that its coming new C 63 will be powered by a bi-turbo 4.0 litre V8 producing a mighty 375kW and 700Nm of torque.

It had previously been believed that AMG’s new V8 - which also features in the recently revealed AMG GT - would power the next C 63, but today’s news marks the first official confirmation of its outputs.

The new figures represent a ‘mere’ 2kW increase over the output of the outgoing line-up’s Edition 507 hero, along with a whopping 90Nm increase in torque.

Those numbers also give the new C 63 a mean 50Nm more torque than the top-shelf ‘S’ version of the AMG GT coupe.

Importantly for the horsepower heroes out there, the C 63 AMG’s outputs also outdo the 317kW/550Nm turbo six of the BMW M3 and the naturally-aspirated 331kW/430Nm V8 that drives the Audi RS 4.

AMG also promises fuel consumption figures of 8.2 l/100km on the European combined cycle, bettering the 8.8 l/100km claimed for the M3 sedan.

Acceleration figures have not been released, but with the new model expected to weigh around 100kg less than its predecessor, we can likely expect a figure that betters the outgoing model’s already satisfying 4.4 second claim.

Other details are still to come, but reports suggest the C 63 will retain its rear-wheel-drive configuration, with power sent to the back exclusively through an updated version of AMG’s seven-speed Speedshift transmission.

Watch for more details to surface soon.
