As the horsepower wars rage on, the AMG team saw fit to stuff the 4-valve DOHC 6.2-liter V8 into its entry-level sedan and create the C63 AMG. With 475 hp being created at 6,800 rpm and 465 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm, Stuttgart's luxury brand is seeking to give the RS4 and soon to be released M3 a run for their money.
While air is siphoned in through a redesigned front air dam to feed the beast, power finds its way down to the wheels through Mercedes' new 7-speed automatic. Uber-pricey composite brakes are up to the task of slowing forward progress with little to no fade and beefy rear rubber makes sure all the horses are used to good effect.

Although the camo-covered Merc doesn't lend much in the way of body panel styling hints, Inside Line notes that the new headlights are getting a more taut rearward pull, dumping the old ovals for a closer family resemblance to the S-Class.

The debut of the new C-Class is due at this September's Paris Motor Show with vehicles finding their way to dealers sometime in early 2007.
