Mercedes Benz has unveiled the all-new C450 AMG Sport 4MATIC; its second AMG sports model with V6 power.
The model combines a 362bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with a permanent all-wheel-drive system and sophisticated suspension technology adopted from the Mercedes-AMG C63.
The new AMG sports model is available as a saloon and an estate model.
The 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, which is mated to the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission, has a 0-62mph of 4.9 seconds (estate: 5.0 seconds) and a combined fuel consumption of 37.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 178grams per kilometre (estate: 36.6 mpg and 180 g CO2 per km).
Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH Tobias Moers said: “With the C 450 AMG we present the second sporty and emotionally expressive vehicle in our product line. It combines the power of a strong twin-turbo V6 engine with a high level of emotional expressiveness, and avails itself of the technical DNA of the new C 63.
The new sports models represent a convincing proposition for our customers: sports car technology and motor racing fascination become more attainable and in the process appeal to a broader customer base.”
The C450 AMG Sport 4MATIC will arrive in the UK in the summer 2016 – UK pricing and specifications are yet to be confirmed.
