We say this because the spy photographers at the scene told us that the weather in Scandinavia has started to get warmer, conditions which make cold weather testing a bit inefficient.
Just like its sedan brother, the upcoming C 63 AMG Wagon S205 will be powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 with a displacement of just four liters, which would make it the smallest production V8 engine in Mercedes-Benz history.
Internally codenamed M177 in the C 63 AMG and M178 in the upcoming AMG GT (C190), the all-new engine is being developed inhouse by Mercedes-AMG GmbH and is in a way a direct replacement for the legendary M156/M159 family of powerhouses.
Paired with an evolution of the known seven-speed MCT transmission, the “base” model will be apparently putting out 476 hp, while an S-Model version – which may or may not come with 4Matic all-wheel drive - should offer over 510 hp.
Even though the regular station wagon variant of the new C-Class W205 was expected at the Geneva Motor Show 2014, it failed to arrive, so you should probably expect it in the upcoming weeks.
If the C 63 AMG sedan gets unveiled this fall, at the 2014 LA Auto Show, we should expect the wagon version to appear a few months later, with a Geneva Motor Show 2015 not being out of the question as its launch venue.
