Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers has ruled out the possibility of an all-wheel drive C63 in the near future.

Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers has ruled out the possibility of an all-wheel drive C63 in the near future.

The announcement was made last week during the Los Angeles Auto Show where Tobias Moers answered with a simple "no" when asked about an AWD C63. However, he did say the company could consider such a version sometime in the future which shouldn't come as a surprise since Moers previously stated more all-wheel drive AMGs are on the way as in some markets 90 percent of the customers prefer getting the AWD version.

The all-new C63 AMG was revealed in the second half of September with a twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine delivering 476 HP (350 kW) and (650 Nm) in the standard version and 510 HP (375 kW) & 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) in the S model. Output is channeled to the rear axle through an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission granting the C63 AMG S Sedan with a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 4 seconds and an electronically-capped 155 mph (250 km/h) top speed.

Mercedes-AMG C63 won't get optional all-wheel drive system, at least for now
