Mercedes’ performance oriented GLC was reportedly heard roaring down their test facility in Stuttgart thanks to the V8 powerhouse. Though details are sketchy at the moment, the GLC 63 AMG could sport the brand-new 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo that’s currently in use in the C 63 AMG. That also means that it could be available in two variants; namely a 476bhp base model and the 510bhp variant, which could invariably be called the GLC 63 S.
Mercedes already sells the GLC 43 AMG in some markets, and the model is powered by a 367bhp 3.0-litre V6 motor that makes 520Nm of torque. Mercedes-Benz is expected to launch the GLC 63 AMG in mid-2017 for the international market, and it would be nice to see the brand bring either the GLC 43 or the 63 AMG to India at some point.
