There are no AMG packages so-to-speak. There are 2 distinct product lines. The Sport car, which incorporates the star into the grill, and the luxury car that retains the hood mounted star. There will be a C300 4-Matic Sport, but sadly, not a 350. The 350 will be rwd only. The standard sport wheel will be 17" with all-season tires, while the 350 Sport will have the option of 18" wheels and summer tires.
Interesting, because at :

AMG sports package: even more dynamism and individuality ex factory
The C-Class benefits from real added value in terms of dynamism and sportiness with the AMG sports package. A combination of attractive and exclusive features, of which many are not available individually, gives the Saloon an even more striking presence even at standstill.
AMG bodystyling, a sports suspension, 17-inch AMG light-alloy wheels, sports seats and a three-spoke steering wheel convey considerably more individuality and guarantee even more driving pleasure for mile after mile.
Although the above could be for Eurospec only. Not saying you are wrong since there are quite a few differences between Euro and US--there is all sorts of info out there! For example they also mention that:
Depending on the equipment line and engine, Mercedes-Benz charges between EUR 2,124 and 3,439 ex-factory for the optional AMG sports package on Eurospec cars.
