Mercedes-AMG Is Bringing V8s Back: Report


Introducing The Mercedes AMG E-Scooter

Assuming this report is accurate, one thing that isn’t clear is whether the four-cylinder 63s will stay in the lineup alongside the V8-powered ones or if the V8 will simply replace the four-cylinder. Additionally, will there be a performance advantage to offset the added weight of the V8? Four-cylinder or not, the new C 63 S’s engine already makes 469 hp, while the V8 in the last C 63 S only made a hair over 500 hp. And finally, how much more will the V8 version cost?

Last year, we got our first official look at the 2024 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S E Performance. It made 671 hp and 752 lb-ft of torque, and according to Mercedes, it could hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds. As the last part of its name suggests, it’s a hybrid, and the electric motor is part of why it’s so powerful. But purists weren’t necessarily upset that the C 63 had gone hybrid. They were upset that it had dropped its V8 in favor of a four-cylinder. But soon, they may get what they were initially hoping for.
