Spy photographers recently managed to take a few shots of a mostly uncovered AMG GLC 63 test mule in Germany.
Only the front bumper is hidden while the rest of its body remains undisguised, this could mean that the AMG GLC 63 production model reveal is approaching. Compared to earlier mules, the beefier bumper looks to be sporting larger air intakes and as nice as those trapezoidal exhaust tips are, we may not see them on the production model because AMG has their own special exhaust tips. Usually the AMG exhausts have two squares in each muffler.
As for the rest of its exterior, once you get over the mismatched wheels, the AMG GLC 63 looks very similar to the already revealed AMG GLC 43 and its interior may look identical as well. What does set them apart besides the bumper are the wheels and brakes which are a little larger on the GLC 63.
AutoCar insiders think a longer bonnet may be in store to better fit a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine that’s capable of producing up to 503 bhp (around 510hp) and 516 lb ft of torque. What we don’t know is if the AMG GLC 63 will come in rear-wheel-drive layout, four-wheel drive, or both. On the one hand, AMG chairman Tobias Moers wants to keep using rear-wheel-drive layouts for AMG 63 models but the GLE 63 comes in 4Matic four-wheel drive.
The drive layout up in the air at this point until the AMG GLC 63 is fully unveiled and if it’s really due to hit the market in 2017, we could see the production model debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in September.
