As usual, we should put a disclaimer about taking the following information with a pinch of salt, since its mostly based on a couple of rumors, common sense and the following three spy photos.
As most of you know, the current C 63 AMG is a beast compared to its rivals on a straight line, but it also has its downsides when you're talking about the standard, non-Performance Package model, trying to follow a BMW M3 in the rain. Why, since it completely overpowers and especially “overtorques” the Bavarian?

Well, mainly because of its lack of a limited slip differential (LSD), which for some odd reason is only offered with the Performance Package.

The C 63 AMG based on the upcoming W205 generation of the C-Class will most likely rectify this problem via two possible ways.

Either even the standard C 63 will have LSD, or we are looking at a development vehicle who's 4Matic all-wheel drive rear differential is smoking after three hard laps on the famed Nordschleife, according to Stefan, the spy photographer who sent us the following three photos. At least this is our guess, what's yours?
