Mercedes-AMG Is Bringing V8s Back: Report


Introducing The Mercedes AMG E-Scooter

We’re sure we’ll have to wait to have our questions answered since Mercedes has yet to officially confirm this report, but we sure do look forward to finding out. Unless, of course, Mercedes doesn’t actually plan to bring back the V8. That’s the kind of news we’d prefer not to hear.

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.
