A New Rendering Hopes to Set Clear Expectations for the 2021 Mercedes-AMG C63
This fan renderings are fun, but is there any accuracy here?by Robert Moore, on
On the market since 2014, the current Mercedes C-Class is far from fresh. With the various prototype sightings over the past couple of years, we know that 2021 will be the year for the fifth-gen model, but something we’ve yet to see is a prototype for the range-toping AMG C63 sedan. The C63 is billed as one of the most aggressive sports sedans on the market, and with very few rivals to compete with, Mercedes-AMG has to remain vigilant when it comes to how the car is perceived. As such, this rendering that we’re about to show you is likely a fairly accurate representation of what the C63 is actually going to look like.
2021 Mercedes-AMG C63 Rendering – Is This the Beast We’ve Been Waiting For?
This rending is obviously based on the recent C-Class spy shots that have been circulating the web, however the artist – J.B. Cars – has taken some creative authority to put an emphasis on certain things. Notice how the fender vents manage to make the biturbo emblems standout clear as day?
The front fascia clearly has AMG written all over it, and you definitely can’t mistake the Panamericana grille.
That said, the AMG C63 isn’t going to change very much – the same story goes for the standard C-Class – but there are some minor tweaks here and there.
On that note, the biturbo badge – at least for now – has been called into question. Word around the campfire is that Mercedes will ditch the biturbo V-8 that’s essentially built into the C63’s DNA for something half the size. To be more specific, we’re talking about the 2.0-liter four-cylinder that’s found in none other than the AMG A45 S. Of course, Mercedes will be forced to go the electric route as the engines 416 horsepower (310 kilowatts) just isn’t going to cut it for the C63. AMG needs to muster up at least 100 extra ponies - enough to push output into the 520-horsepower range.
Regardless of what changes are in store under the hood, is this how the new AMG C63 will actually look? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
