The new Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG 4MATIC

Second AMG sport model with V6 power

Affalterbach. Driving Performance – the AMG brand promise and the typical character traits can now be experienced by and even broader target group. The new C450 AMG 4MATIC expands the product range of the performance and sports car brand of Mercedes-Benz with another new AMG sports model. As an attractive entry into the world of AMG, the C450 AMG 4MATIC combines a 362 horsepower 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with a permanent Performance all-wheel-drive system and sophisticated suspension technology adopted from the Mercedes-AMG C63. The result is fascinating Driving Performance and the hallmark emotional expressiveness of the brand. The new C450 AMG 4MATIC will further bolster the already extensive and highly compelling C-Class product line-up when it launches in the U.S. market in the fall of 2015.

The new AMG sport models are distinguished by convincing product substance. Even at first glance, the characteristic AMG body styling leaves no doubt that this vehicle is part of the Mercedes-AMG model family. Another indication for the new model strategy is found in the form of a special AMG badge on the front fenders. From an engineering standpoint the AMG sport models perfectly deliver on the visual promise of a sporty character with a powerful engine, the standard-fit all-wheel drive system with rear-biased torque split, and sophisticated suspension solutions.

In addition to the Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG 4MATIC Coupe, the C450 AMG 4MATIC represents the second stage of the new model initiative. More emotionally inspiring AMG sports models will follow.

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH explains: "With the C450 AMG we present the second sporty and emotionally expressive vehicle in our product line. It combines the power of a strong twin-turbo V6 engine with a high level of emotional expressiveness, and avails itself of the technical DNA of the new C63. The new sport models represent a convincing proposition for our customers: sports car technology and motor racing fascination become more attainable and in the process appeal to a broader customer base."
