I told you! Some of you didn’t believe me, but I told you! The next C63 won’t have a V8, instead it’s a 4 Cylinder Hybrid. As I predicted last time, this new Hybrid line of cars will come under the AMG E Performance brand headlined by the AMG Project ONE. But, what I was wrong about, was the final output of power. I assumed 520 bhp as a slight bump about the V8… but AMG have smashed that figure to pieces with 643 Peak output! They’ve genuinely gone all out to create a car that while loses the V8, fills the void with one-to-one F1 technology, insane performance figures and even an EV mode! So today let’s take a very special look at the new AMG E Performance drive line for the next C63, and please also welcome my new fellow host Tobias to the channel! :)
There are 4 main areas to talk about in the new C63, first the Engine itself, then the new E-Turbo within the engine, the AMG Performance battery In the rear, and finally the Electric Drive Unit on the rear. Apart from the 4 cylinder hybrid element, the next gen car will be all wheel drive using the 4matic+ we’ve seen before in the E63 and GT63, with the pure rear wheel drift mode.
Let’s explore the P3 Hybrid set up that we are going to explore today, starting with the Engine. It’s the M139 engine that started life in the A45S, as the worlds most powerful production 4 cylinder at 421BHP. In that car, it was installed transversely or sideways. However, it will be installed longitudinally in the #C63 as with every C to date. AMG says it’s been thoroughly reworked and its performance significantly increased to the most powerful.
The big difference is the electric exhaust-gas turbocharger. This technology comes directly from F1 and is called MGU-H (Motor Generator Unit Heat), for the first time in a production vehicle. An identical system already powers the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE hypercar. This unit gives you the fast-responding nature of a small turbocharger, and high peak power of a large turbo. So that reworked M139 now gives 442 BHP, by itself.
Electric Drive Unit or EDU is next. This is a major part of the system. Unlike having the electric motor in-between the combustion engine and transmission which is more typical, AMG have installed a super clever unit on the rear instead! That compact unit houses some real magic, inside it we have the E-Motor itself which is a permanently excited one just like you’d see in say a taycan, a 2 speed transmission for that motor where the 2nd gear is for higher speeds (again as you’d see in a high end EV like taycan), and finally a more familiar limited slip differential. There’s even a full #EV mode possible
Next the AMG PERFORMANCE BATTERY, #MercedesAMG has developed their own performance battery Inspired by F1 learning, it was developed by High Performance Powertrains (HPP) Formula 1 engine forge in Brixworth and Mercedes-AMG in Affalterbach. It is a 400VOLT battery, with 560 cells, and it’s again very clever particularly with cooling. Result is consistent temp and thus consistent power of 93BHP continuous, and 320NM too, or 201 BHP at peak for 10 seconds!!!
Recuperation under braking is in too, you have four stages; Level 0, 1, 2 and 3 - selectable by the driver via the right-hand-side steering wheel button. In Level 3, the generator is capable of capturing up to 90kW of electrical energy!
So we have both the EDU, and the performance battery on the rear, which is great though, this whole system adds about 200KG weight, so whatever you save on the V8 you’ll gain on this system!
But look how much you gain in performance too. 540 BHP continuous power, a peak of over 640BHP, a 0-60 of likely sub 3.5 maybe even quicker. Let’s take a deep dive and explore:
- Next 2021 C63 overview
- M139 C63 Engine
- New E-Turbo from the Project ONE
- Belt driven starter alternator
- EDU Electric drive unit
- Electric motor, 2 speed transmission, Limited slip differential

Unreal. I’m in. I’m all in. Well done Mercedes

I want the sound and the feel of power; the full experience, emotion. Could’ve at least gone I6 turbo hybrid MB! I just dumped 2 Volvo T6 superturbo’s because they effing blow compared to the Benz and Audi 6 and 8 experience. I know the Volvo’s weren’t 600 hp, but still the high strung and stressed 4 cylinder low rent growl and pop IS NOT PREMIUM POWER! I still have an AMG NA and a V6 turbo to enjoy for now. “...from Formula 1...”. FYI - Guys, the F1 cars are still turbo 6 hybrids, not crap 4 cyl.

  • No performance can make up for the sound of a V8. (One reason i stay with my old 6.2 E63 for as long as i can.) The former AMG boss once said: AMG owners like to start their car while the door is open.) Even though i finally would have the money to buy one new, this new "C63" is untineresting to me apart from the outside look. (I also find it sad that they switched to the huge dominating center display that does nothing but distract in both S and c class.) And if the old 6.2 ever gives up, after over 23 years of MB i think my next car will be something different.

  • The escalation to power is getting boring unless they can transfer all the HP to the wheels adequately which is why this is an all wheel drive. And this is where they’re losing me, even spirited drives will feel awfully safe, too safe. The engine sound will most likely be synthesised to cover the agricultural tone of the inline 4. Not sold at all.

All that will truly matter is how fast this thing can go from 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) and how fast it can do a standing 1/4 mile. I get the feeling this will leave the previous versions in the dust, so long as Mercedes does the job right of being able to transfer all that power to the wheels controllably.
