According to Autoevolution, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 may produce more power than the current AMG C63 model.
Expected to go on sale before the second quarter of 2018, the crossover may hide a twin-turbo V8 under its hood and come with all-wheel-drive. If Autoevolution is correct and the GLC 63 is more powerful than the C63, then we’ll probably see the crossover’s output exceed 476 HP.
Currently, the C63 can go from 0 to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds and it has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Similar or better figures is expected of the new GLC 63 with the help of all-wheel-drive. As for the model’s transmission, the GLC 63 should come with the multi-clutch 9G-Tronic, similar to what was used in the AMG E63.
Another rumor floating around suggests that Mercedes may offer us an S version, which should have a power output higher than what the S version of the C63 can produce.
But until Mercedes reveal the AMG GLC 63 specs, we’ll only have unverified rumors to go on. The GLC 63 should debut this year at one of the larger auto shows, probably in Europe.
