It is being said that Stuttgart based luxury car maker Mercedes Benz is planning include a performance oriented C450 AMG Sport to its new C Class line up. The Mercedes Benz C450 AMG Sport will be launched in 2015 and the upcoming model is being readied to fill in the void between the C400 and upcoming C63 AMG. Powering the C450 AMG Sport would be a tuned version of Mercedes’ M276 petrol engine.
This twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine has been updated with added boost pressure and other minor changes, which work together to take the combined output from 333bhp to 367bhp. While the upcoming car won’t be an official AMG model, the Mercedes Benz C450 AMG Sport will carry several inputs coming from Mercedes Benz’s performance car division. Also, while the C63 AMG will be available only in a rear-wheel drive format, the C450 will be offered in both rear-wheel drive and 4Matic four-wheel drive options.
