C55 AMG ?

The flagship AMG version of the new C-Class has been spied by our photographers.

While the current model has a 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine, its replacement could get the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8. This M157 engine is available in various other AMG models and has an exact displacement of 5461cc with a bore of 98mm and a stroke of 90.5mm. In the C63 AMG, this will probably be offered in the 525 hp (391 kW) version.

The images depict a prototype but we already can tell that it will get wider bumpers and wheel arches, along with the familiar AMG wheels and larger air intakes.

Why would you find a 5.5 TT so hard to believe? The engine has been around for long enough now and the C63 is a V8 class. Becoming a v6 class would lose the buyer looking for that class, and a 4.0 liter on the other hand compared to a 5.5 TT? I know what I would rather be driving!!

I find it so funny with all these website that pretends to know all the "details" on these upcoming models. I would bet my house that this car will not get the 5.5 twin turbo. It's just too heavy, and with the emphasis now on weight and efficiency, a twin turbo V6 or even a new and lighter 4.0 V8 is more plausible, bearing in mind that MB is already getting over 350 hp from the turbo 2.0 in the new A45 amg.
