Mercedes-Benz’s next sports sedan will share an engine with the recently revealed AMG GT, as well as the car’s adaptive engine mounts.

The next C63, shown here, will ape the GT’s two-tier power level. A 4.0L twin-turbo V8 with a 7-speed transmission will be offered with both 469 and 503 horsepower trims. Although AWD hasn’t been announced, AMG has been shifting to a lineup of vehicles driving all four wheels. This, combined with the major power advantage over the BMW M3, should give the new Benzo a decided qualitative and quantitative advantage over their arch-rivals.
