Our colleagues from LeftLaneNews have managed to obtain new details about the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

Set to go on sale early next year, the C63 AMG Sedan will be motivated by a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine outputting somewhere in the region of 480 bhp (358 kW) in the "regular" model. A source close to the German marque told LeftLaneNews there will be a more powerful "S" version which will also pack larger brakes and different interior & exterior styling.

None of the two cars will be offered with a dual-clutch transmission since Mercedes-Benz believes there isn't enough customer demand and also the development costs would be high.

The standard Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Sedan will allegedly be unveiled in October at the Paris Motor Show before going on sale at the beginning of 2015. It will be followed by coupe, cabrio and wagon versions along with the aforementioned S variant. At this moment it's not known whether all body styles or just the sedan will get the S derivative.
