THE Mercedez-Benz C Class has already won itself a reputation as a fun, easy to drive car.
Now car buyers will have the option to go for power with the launch of its V6 AMG sports model.
The new C 450 AMG 4MATIC expands the product range of the performance and sports car brand of Mercedes-Benz with what the company calls “an attractive entry into the world of AMG.”
There is plenty of power and great roadholding thanks to the combination of a 367 horespower 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with a permanent Performance all-wheel-drive system and sophisticated suspension technology adopted from the Mercedes-AMG C 63.
Available as a saloon and an estate model, it was unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show, and is planned to be in showrooms this coming summer.
The characteristic AMG body styling leaves no doubt that this model is part of the Mercedes-AMG model family.
From an engineering point of view, the AMG sports models deliver on the visual promise of a sporty character with a powerful engine, the standard-fit all-wheel drive system and sophisticated suspension solutions.
