Now that we've seen the facelifted 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class in its bread-and-butter C250, C300 and C350 forms, it's time to start thinking about the holier-than-thou, unabashedly hardcore C63 AMG. The folks at Germany's EvoCars have stumbled upon what appear to be production-spec images of the AMG-laden 2012 C-Class, and while the brash bulginess of the current car has been toned down somewhat, there's certainly nothing sedate about this new menacing Merc.
The biggest question about the next-generation C63 is whether or not Mercedes-Benz will ditch the current car's glorious naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 in favor of the new twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter mill that will be used in the CL63, S63 and CLS63. EvoCars states that only the new C63 AMG Coupe will receive the 5.5-liter heart, and that power of the 6.2 will be bumped up for use in the sedan. Still, with either engine, we're sure the C63 will be as lively as ever out on the road.
