Arrow More spy photos of the W205 C63AMG

More photos and specifications are leaking out:

2016 Mercedes-Benz W205 C63 AMG: Latest Spy Shots and Information

Quote:
- AMG quad exhausts;
- P255/40R18 rear wheel tire size;
- Leather wrapped/stitched dash board;
- Adjustable suspension control near in the center console;
- 320 kmh (200 mph) speedometer;

Also the powertrain specification of the new C63 AMG will be:

- 4.0L twin-turbo V8;
- standard version: 476 hp;
- high output version: 510 hp;
- 7-speed MCT transmission


Glad to know the engine will put out 476 hp and may be able to break 200mph if the speed limiter is removed. But one concern to me is the rear tire size of 255 width: I am not sure whether it is sufficient to handle such high output.

Thanks for the post!

The current W204 C63 runs 255/30 and they are simply too narrow, new ones will be similar then only with a taller 40 profile, good for smokes though

Is it me, or the rear looks like Honda Civic?

That is my beef with a lot the newer styling. It is looking a bit to Asian for me.
