There's a domestic horsepower blitzkrieg going on in Germany.
So you just went out and bought yourself a new BMW M3. Think you’re hot shit and all, right? Ok, yeah, you are. The M3 is a ridiculously cool and powerful German cruise missile. But the upcoming 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is going to be even better. Try around 85 horsepower better. Mercedes has just announced the official output for the new C63 AMG, and it’s just nuts: 510 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, thanks to its 4.0-liter biturbo V8. That’s the exact same engine found in the also new and delectable AMG GT.
In fact, Mercedes claims its new sport sedan will be the most powerful piece of arsenal in the entire product lineup once it goes on sale. Compared to the previous gen C63 AMG Black Series, the automaker predicts the new car will at least match the 0-62 mph time of less than 4.2 seconds. And, for the record, the BMW M3/M4 duo has an output of 425 ponies and 406 lb-ft. See what happens when you stick with a V8, BMW? Last bit of Mercedes gloating for the day: the new C63 AMG’s pricing is predicted to be no more, if not less, than that of its BMW rival. How do ya' like dem Apfel?
