Mercedes has added a new model to its C-class family of cars and this one is the hopped up Mercedes-AMG C43 coupe. Motivation for the C43 is a 3.0L biturbo V6 engine that makes 362 hp and 384 lb-ft. of torque. That is enough oomph to push the car to a top speed of 155 mph and to 60mph from a stop in 4.6 seconds.

The engine power is put to the ground via a new 9G-TRONIC transmission with paddle shift modes, double-declutching and very fast shifts. The AMG 4MATIC AWD has read-biased torque distribution with a split of 31/69% front to rear, which should make it both fun to drive, and controllable. AMG Ride Control suspension is included with five driver selectable modes.

The car has upgraded brakes with perforated 14.2-inch rotors front and 12.6-inch rotors at the rear. Standard wheels are 18-inch AMG alloys with 19-inch wheels as an option. It also gets an AMG instrument cluster, sports multifunction steering wheel, and black sport seat upholstery with red stitching. Pricing and availability are unannounced at this time.
