These are the latest spy shots of the AMG version of the recently revealed C-Class wagon, or “Estate” as it’s known in most of the markets it’s sold in. We know it’s the AMG because of its four squared-off exhaust tips, AMG-style 19-inch wheels, chunky brake discs and aggressive A-wing front splitter similar to the one fitted to the latest E63 AMG.
Mercedes is expected to retain the C63 AMG moniker for its latest hotted-up C-Class despite the previous car’s 6.2-liter V-8 being replaced by a new twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8. Both power and torque should rise over the levels found in the outgoing model, which rates at 451 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Performance should also be boosted considerably in the new generation thanks to the lighter and more rigid MRA platform underpinning the car.

The new C63 AMG sedan is expected to debut in the second half of the year, possibly at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show in November. The wagon should be revealed at the same time or shortly after. Oh, and there will eventually be a Black Series model.
Sadly, with Mercedes-Benz not expected to offer its new C-Class wagon in the U.S., it means we’ll also miss out on this awesome C63 AMG wagon. At least we still get a wagon version of the E63 AMG.
