Mercedes-Benz is allegedly working on a C450 AMG Sport model for next year to slot just below the upcoming C63 AMG.

British media is reporting Mercedes-Benz will add a C-Class derivative in 2015 that will be positioned above the C400 and below the hot C63 AMG. The vehicle will be motivated by an updated V6 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine delivering 367 bhp (274 kW), up from the previous 333 bhp (248 kW).

This won't be a fully-fledged AMG model but Mercedes-Benz is working with the engineers from Affalterbach and will offer the model with both RWD and 4MATIC, as opposed to the range-topping C63 AMG which will be rear-wheel drive only. At this moment it's not known whether the C450 AMG Sport will be available only as a sedan or it will be offered for all upcoming body styles as in the case of the C63 AMG which will be sold as a wagon, coupe and cabrio.
