Disguised assess mule for V8-powered SUV hits the road with palpable AMG styling, ahead of 2017 release

Whenever a new Mercedes car launches, it’s as usual a safe bet that a hardcore AMG version is even-handed around the corner, and the GLC SUV is no different. We’ve had a annoyed-up with the V6-engined Mercedes-AMG GLC 43, but the chock-a-block-fat GLC 63 is due for release in 2017.

Our spy images show a modified GLC evaluate mule featuring a wider track, chunky fa bumper and bigger air intakes. more unmistakable quad exhausts at the rear are also a narrate-tale giveaway that this is AMG’s manifestation of the midsize SUV aiming beat BMW’s ‘M’ division and Audi’s RS breaking up rivals to market. 

Given that the GLC sits on the unvarying platform as the C-Class saloon and estate, it’s a non-toxic bet that we’ll be seeing the 4.0-litre counterpart-turbo V8 from the C63 wedged under the bonnet. That produces 503bhp and a crammed 700Nm of torque in range-topping S construction – far more than the GLC 43’s 362bhp and 520Nm.

As such, this could be a one’s own flesh SUV that can manage 0-62mph in under 4.5 seconds. Four-neighbourhood drive is also likely to be standard fitment to s reign-in all that fury – as it is in the larger GLE 63. Presume the chassis to be given a thorough AMG overhaul, too, making the rejection stiffer and more resistant to roll than the GLC 43.

No details possess been released of when we’ll be seeing the GLC 63 without pretence, though an unveil in the first half of 2017 is proper before the car goes on sale at the end of the year.
