Yes, I thought of that possibility. Anyway the 'famous' press release that states the M156 at 199kg was published before the announcement of any specific 63 AMG model. It was by no means a press release explicitly for the C63.

What does any of this back and forth debate got to do with the next M3 engine????????????????????

Serious guys, all the engines in this endless debate are brilliant, BMW have chose small capacity N/A, Mercedes have large capacity, some chose turbos, others chose superchargers, etc, etc, etc.

It's not what under the hood but the results that count, always remember that.
+1 Couldn't agree more. Different strokes for different folks.


Best regards, south
