What V-8? The most potent Mercedes-AMG C 63 sedan will be powered by a four-cylinder hybrid powertrain.
The spunky compact 2024 C 63 S E Performance swaps a V-8 for a plug-in-hybrid powertrain with 671 hp and 752 pound-feet of torque. Many of the key technologies in the 2.0-liter inline with an electric turbocharger are derived from the 1.6-liter hybrid that is among the most advanced and highest-performance powerplants ever under Mercedes' umbrella: the EQ10 Power+ setup used in Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One cars.
Mechanical linkages allow both the gasoline engine and electric motors to power all four wheels.
