Mercedes-Benz C 450 AMG with an Extra Oomph
Mercedes-Benz has presented the C450 AMG Sport in Detroit at 2015 NAIAS, promising an unmatched AMG expressiveness, typical for the brand. The new AMG sports model is available as a saloon and an estate version.
From the very first look it becomes apparent that 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport indicates sufficient class, style and presence. Thew new version takes advantage of an upgraded twin-turbo V6 3.0-liter engine that delivers 362 bhp (270 kW) at 5,500 rpm and 517 Nm (382 lb-ft) of peak torque available between 2,000 rpm and 4,200 rpm.
This significant power output is transmitted to a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system through an improved 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic gearbox. It allows the sedan to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.9 seconds. The wagon slightly slower, by 0.1s precisely. Still, both of the vehicles have a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
But the extra oomph is not all, because the the C450 models share some of the range-topping C63's technical features such as: optimised pull rods and front-axle carrier mounts, firmer springs and adjustable dampers. There are also new load bearing joints, additional negative camber and tweaked steering knuckles.
For an extra pinch of individualism, the C450 AMG features 5-spoke black AMG light-alloy wheels wrapped around in 225/45 front and 245/40 rear tires. Still. attractive 48.3-cm (19-inches) light-alloy wheels in different designs are available as an option too.
Standard equipment components of the Mercedes-Benz C 450 AMG 4MATIC include: adaptive brake, Attention Assist, audio 20 USB multimedia system, Collision Prevention Assist Plus, ECO start/stop function, ISOFIX child seat attachment system and sports pedals.
The exclusive sporty interior is underlined by a front bumper with original air intakes, diamond meshes, black exterior mirror housings, silver chrome trim, as well as a rear bumper with matt iridium silver diffuser insert. On the inside, the car caries the same sporty but classy flavor thanks to the sports seats, 3-spoke nappa leather sports steering wheel with flat bottom, red seat belts, red stitching, alloy pedals and other minimal interior enhancements.
