Mercedes prepares new four-door AMG sedan
Back in 1990 at the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes unveiled the 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II sedan, a model that - at that time - was said to be capable of producing a total output of 232 bhp.
Now, after more than two decades, Mercedes is finally preparing for a likely successor to the special-edition 190E. According to reports, the new model that will carry the Evolution badge will be based on the next-generation B-Class, which will then compete with the Audi RS3 and the BMW M1.
Codenamed C117 EVO, the new model will be placed below the next generation C63 AMG and will measure around 4500 mm. It will likewise be powered by a new supercharged 3.2-liter V6 engine rated at 400 hp. It will be a front-wheel-drive model based on the MFA chassis that will also be used in the next A-class.
As for the car’s exterior proportions and dimensions, they were previewed at the Geneva Motor Show by theF800 Style Concept.
