    Default Buster Trigger Warning: 670hp 4 cylinder C63 AMG Unveiled

    https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a4...ance-revealed/

    Thank god they're not making a cab version, or I'd end up buying another car haha. 4 cylinder, hybrid, MGU-H turbo, and speakers for sounds. @Buster never going to recover from this.

    They're certainly big, but I don't know if they are the BEST I've tasted.

    752 lb-ft of torque. This thing will be fun to drive. Interior is great.

    Shame there's not a v8, but not much we can do about that.

    I don’t think I’d want a year 1 of this power plant.

    But could be an interesting pickup for a second MY

    Yeah that crossed my mind. But it's not like it's their first foray into performance hybrids either.

    I definitely wouldn't want one out of warranty. Like even less than a normal AMG. haha

    I'm going to miss V8s, but that is incredible power output from an OEM. Even without the hybrid system you're talking a 500 horsepower 4 cylinder.

    A lot of rumours that M is going to do the same thing with the M3 with a refresh late next year ( so much for this generation of M3 lasting more than a year).

    Sticking with a 6cyl tho.

    There's a lot of difference in the hybrid setup in the C63 than what AMG already has with their performance hybrid offerings. The MGU-H turbo is probably the biggest one, integrating a motor between the compressor and the turbine. It's only been used in F1, a version of it in the AMG one, and first time in "mass production". Same goes for the battery, derived from the F1 and AMG one units, liquid cooled to allow quick recharge/discharge cycles.

    So yea, you might not really see how robust these new tech looks in mass production for several years. But that's what warranties are for right?

    What's the worry of year 1 cars anyway. That's what warranty is for, right? When it runs out you can buy extended warranty too lol and when that runs out you sell it to NE bro lol

    That makes sense re: new powertrain - I didn't know it was that different.

    Also, just read the article... ~4700lb curb weight.

    Boring speed and acceleration without the noises behind it. I mean if people buy these things then let the market produce them.

    Ariel has a 1200 hp electric / gas turbine hybrid that will be going into production. Can drive the car hard without discharging the battery, unless doing full on track activities.
