Mercedes will deliver up to 503 hp with the new AMG C63 - along with 32% better fuel economy.

Mercedes-Benz wants to pump you up – at least if you’re looking to buy one of its new C-class models. With the addition of the AMG C63 line next year, you’ll be able to order a package that tips the scales at more than 500 horsepower.

That’s a far cry from the old Baby Benz, but the latest C-Class is larger and far more luxurious than ever, undergoing a number of significant changes for the 2015 model-year, as TheDetroitBureau.com has already reported. The AMG treatment takes it up a significant notch, both in terms of features and performance.

Think of the new C63 AMG as Mercedes' Beauty and the Beast, suggested product czar Joachim Schmidt.

Mercedes-Benz will roll out “at least” four new high-performance AMG models this coming year, the maker reported, giving the first of these a send-up at the 2011 New York Auto Show.

The new C63 AMG becomes the most powerful version of Mercedes’ “entry-level” model ever offered in the U.S.  With its naturally-aspirated 6.3 liter V8, the compact luxury model will make a full 451 horsepower, announced global product chief Joachim Schmidt, and 443 horsepower.

The engine drives the rear wheels through a 7-speed Speedshift MCT transmission.

During a presentation at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, Schmidt made reference to a long-running play staged a mile north, on Broadway, dubbing the C63 AMG, “our own version of Beauty and the Beast.”
