2013 is shaping up to be the most important year of this decade for Mercedes. In order to keep rival luxury makers BMW and Audi at bay. The year will likely see the unveiling of the new CLA compact sedan based on the A-Cass, the new C-Class, facelifted E-Class and probably the S-Class, which will have five variant, including coupe and cabio.
The prototype for the next generation AMG-tuned C-Class has once again been captured by the men with telescopic lenses. The new C-Class will make a radical departure from the styling of the current model. It will also be lighter and packed with new safety tech. This will serve as an ideal platform to take the fight to the BMW M3 and Audi RS4 and RS5.

Instead of continuing with the 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V8, they will use the new twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8, like the one used by basically the whole AMG family. There are currently four states of output for this engine. In the E63 AMG and CLS63 AMG, this means 525 hp in base configuration, which is what the C63 AMG will likely make now. However, it’s not inconceivable that a new lower output version with about 500 hp will be engineered.

Our spy photographers say they’ve learned the ‘63’ name will be dropped, and the fast sedan will actually be called the C55 AMG. This is not that strange if AMG were to make two versions, like with the G-Class and SL-Class.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
