Recently seen an article saying that they've spied the AMG GLC 63 ! Looks pretty beast in my opinion. Speculated to produce 503ghp and 516lb-ft of torque. Some aesthetic changes on the outside really make it look a bit more aggressive. Anyone interested ??

Spy photographers have spotted a 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 development mule testing in Germany.
The car is wearing a new front bumper that’s larger than the ones fitted to earlier mules, and it has wider air intakes, giving the super SUV a more muscular face.
Insiders suspect the car will also get a longer bonnet than the regularGLC, to provide more space for the wet-sump twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 that powers it.
Shared with models like the C 63 saloon, the engine is likely to produce up to 503bhp and 516lb ft of torque, as it does in other models.
Elsewhere, the car’s body looks identical to that of the GLC 43, which has already been revealed and goes on sale this summer. It is thought the interior will also be identical to that of the 43, which uses a twin-turbocharged V6 engine to produce 361bhp, and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.9sec.
AMG boss Tobias Moers recently said AMG 63 models would retain rear-wheel-drive layouts, leading some to suggest the hottest GLC could be rear-driven only. However, the larger GLE 63 comes exclusively with 4Matic four-wheel drive, so it seems more likely this layout will be offered on the GLC.
AMG has set the GLE 63 up to supply its rear wheels with 69% of power, so we can expect a similar level of rear-drive bias with the 4Matic GLC 63.

It doesn't look too far off production ready to me; given the choice I'd prefer the rear wheel option ! With that sort of power & torque it'll be an absolute flying machine.

I know it has the quad exhaust and wheel arch extensions but IMO doesn't look any meaner than AMG Line spec?
Be interesting to see when released.

The two different wheels does make me ponder as well, Possibly trying two different options ?

rear wheel drive is always the choice ! It would be great, paired with launch control, fun times await haha

Got to love how bold it looks which has me thinking how much more bolder a brand like Brabus can make it look since this is more than likely going to be one of the higher volume vehicles they'll be customizing.

Anyone here going to be interested in Brabus parts for their GLC?
