New W205 C63 Render

The W205 C63 will be powered by a 4.0L biturbo V8 (which will also power the new AMG GT, the SLS successor).

In addition to being offered in sedan form, there will be coupe, estate, convertible, and Black Series variants.

Most recent testing footage (with E90 M3 and AMG GT in tow); exhaust note is starting to shape up:

I agree. However, I bet this car will look wider than the W204 from the rear.

I am a fan, still wishing for bigger fenders. Either way, if I need another 4 seater, this will likely be it (potentially the estate version as well)!

In fact I don't remember the any C AMG to have wide/flared rear fenders, compared to the standard C Class, neither the C43 AMG, nor the C55 AMG and neither the C63 AMG. Only the AMG Black Series have that feature.

Main reason are costs for such low volume sellers. M3 E90, new M3 F80, IS-F, and RS4 are exceptions. M5 for example never had wider rear fenders. The main constraint is that the rear quarter panel is part of the monocoque chassis and is not "bolt-on" like the front wings. Moreover, if the rear fenders were wider, the rear doors too would have to be different, what is not the case the of the sedans mentioned above. Their flair is not centred, but is skewed to the rear of the car.

In the case of the new C Class (W205), it is even more difficult to do, because of the overall design with the dropping line. It would require a new door, in style of the CLS.

C 350


C 63 AMG



But now, something like this would be great:

Well shoot, color me surprised. I always thought that the C63 had pumped up front fenders. I knew about the rears and always thought they were on the puny side. Funny you mention the doors; the F80 M3's rear fender treatment looks relatively kit car-ish thanks to the abrupt stop in surfacing.

That top render looks like they didn't touch the fenders at all.

I know the front fenders on both the standard and AMG variants look identical in photographs but in person, side-by-side, the AMG's front fenders look just a bit more aggressive.

I have a relative with a C300 w/ "Sport" styling. I'll try to take some side-by-side comparison photos.

I just had my C63 detailed (many thanks to Mike @ Driven Auto Detail). I'll try to recreate these angles for my shots of the C300:

I was talking about rear fenders which are not wider on AMG models compared to standard cars. Front fenders on all AMG and M car (M5&M6) are wider. But that is just what I don't like about, the cars look unbalanced and give it "FWD" impression due to impressive front track.


Now that is killer!

But real IS F never came that way. Too bad there was no C 63 AMG Sedan Black Series.

Yeah, there's some tuners that do wider rears though and they look pretty mean.

Can't watch your vid, because GEMA in Germany sucks.

Right on. My mistake. I confused you with another member (this member once tried to convince me the AMG fenders were identical to the standard car fenders; I pointed out to him that on the W204, the front bumper makes up part of the front fenders and that the AMG has its own distinct bumper and thus, its own distinct flares).
