    • Chinese leak reveals some 2015 W205 C63 AMG interior and exterior details as well as the speedometer

      This is not exactly the best leak ever but considering the anticipation of Mercedes-AMG enthusiasts around the globe for the upcoming 2015 C63 AMG we will take what we can get. What we get here is a couple interior shots as well as a shot of the speedometer. Unfortunately, whomever was taking pics did not focus on the tach as it would be nice to confirm if the C63 AMG M177 redline will match the M178 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 in the AMG GT.

      We will have to wait and see just how similar the engine is but for now we can confirm the capability is indicated to over 320 km/h which means this car with the limiter removed has 200 mile per hour potential. At the very least it is geared for some serious high end speed and for those wondering the W204 speedometer also went to 320 km/h.

      What else do we learn here? The AMG body work is subtle, the interior is very similar to the standard C-Class, and there are paddle shifters. A system for adjusting the suspension also appears inside. The wheels also look to be hiding some nice sized drilled rotors and the rubber appears to be Continental ContiSportContact 3 in a P255/40R18 in back. That rubber is a bit narrow for a car with this much torque.

      We have all been teased enough. It's time for some concrete details from AMG themselves. The official reveal is anticipated to be at the LA Auto Show in November.

        What's with the weird angles for the interior pics?

        Also, guess it's safe to assume that the gear shift is going to be on the side of the steering wheel like the other C class models. I know it doesn't make any real mechanical difference to the car, being an auto and all, but I'm not sure if I like that.

        Those single caliper brakes leave something to be desired.

        Good question I have no clue who took these pictures or why they chose the angles they did.
