Amg aficionados were skeptical to say the least when mercedes-benz’s performance division announced that the top of the line c-class would lose its v8 and henceforth be powered by a plug in hybrid for cylinder yes the new powertrain is silly powerful at a whopping 671 horsepower and 752 pound-feet of torque but it makes for a heavy c-class 2. 4654 pounds according

To amg far heftier than any of its formidable competitors which include the bmw m3 and the cadillac court 4v blackwood to give us some insight into what the portly performer feels like we were invited into the passenger seat of the new c63s piloted by amg’s chief technical officer joke and herman in a half hour on one of daimler’s proving grounds south of stuttgart

Hermann took us onto winding roads and a decent sized track we went well into triple digit velocities and experienced every one of the c63 s’s multifarious driving modes on the docile end of the scale fully electric mode delivers impressive acceleration and all-wheel drive even absent any health from the gas engine we are not an obstacle hermann says grinning as

We ascend a hill with remarkably little effort and we talk about the new car’s wider bandwidth between comfort and sportiness amg customers are a demanding bunch and wanted a more comfortable car without sacrificing anything in terms of performance larger diameter dampers help smooth the ride and even when the combustion engine is on its sound can be effectively

Suppressed quietness on the first and last miles of a trip is a relatively recent customer requirement says herman when he switches the drive mode selector a few notches up the new c63 really comes alive with nearly equal front to rear weight distribution standard all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering if the c-class is set up to deliver both traction and agility

The new structure also offers significantly improved torsional and lateral stiffness always a boon to suspension tuning ceramic brakes are optional but the story here is really the plug-in powertrain particularly its battery the c63 is programmed to hoard some charge even when the battery is nominally depleted so its extra torque is always available and when the

Charge is low it takes only a few minutes to restore it the car allows for recuperation even during extremely hard braking and full electric boost is available for 10 seconds which is enough to get you in deep legal trouble just about anywhere but the autobahn top speed is governed at 155 miles per hour or 174 miles per hour depending on the package lest you think

Amg has gone totally pragmatic in its shift to hybridization there are drift modes that shift the torque entirely to the rear axle they are less complicated and easier to access than bmw’s similar systems from the right side seat the performance truly impresses but you can feel the c63e’s ways even as a passenger amg doesn’t want to talk about racetrack figures

Yet but the added massive batteries and electric motors can be a deficit in corners and braking zones even as they enhance straight line performance power is transmitted to all four wheels through amg’s nine-speed wet clutch mct automatic and the m1391 engine shared with the c43 amg is force-fed by an electrically assisted turbocharger which is more powerful here

Because the high voltage system allows for more electric boost from the passenger seat the boost is relentless as expected with 671 horsepower but because of this car’s weight it doesn’t entirely blow us away knee neither does the electronically enhanced sound although we don’t hate it the artificial sound effects are transmitted into the cabin and blared out

Through external speakers enhanced by exhaust flaps it’s unmistakably a four-cylinder sound but a really aggressive one we can live with it just as we can live with the sound of the sea law 45 amg it doesn’t sound like a v8 to be sure but this is the best four-cylinder hybrid we’ve ever heard by a long shot we took out for cylinders but we added a whole lot of

Other things says herman that’s true and a lot of it is really good resulting in the most forward-looking modern car in its segment the technology transfer from the limited edition amg-1 is tangible everywhere do we like this version of the future sure it looks and feels good to us but don’t blame us if we shed a tear for the lost more purest past when all you

Needed for boost and drift modes were a v8 and your own right foot
