No I was talking about the black one. Usually the AMG versions have a flush Mercedes emblem rather than the hood ornament, don't they? But yeah, there's no AMG emblems anyways on the black one.

the model with the logo in the grill is their Sport sedan while the other grill with traditional hood emblem is their Luxury sedan
I was thinking one of them was the C300 and the other was the C350? Maybe not. Also, I can't wait to see the new C63 AMG.

'Bahn Stormer: Mercedes-Benz Planning C63 AMG Coupe to Rival Audi RS5, BMW M3
We've known Mercedes-Benz was planning to build a new C-Class coupe sometime in 2011, and we figured an AMG variant would come along as well. We now have the first details on the upcoming C63 AMG Coupe, and it's set to be a 'Bahn stormer.

Instead of using the new twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V-8 going into Mercedes-Benz's new 63-series AMG cars, the C63 coupe will use the same 6.2-liter V-8 as the C63 sedan. We can't really complain about the engine; although it loses a few ticks in fuel efficiency to the updated V-8, it's certainly a monster. In sedan trim, the V-8 puts out 451 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, but the tuning wizards in Affalterbach plan on increasing output further in the C63 coupe.

"We're looking to up the power beyond that of today's C63 AMG," an inside AMG source told British magazine Autocar. Referring to its natural competitors, the BMW M3 coupe and upcoming Audi RS5, the sourced affirmed that "it's safe to say it will be the most powerful of the three."

Mercedes-Benz AMG officials say the car was intended as a direct RS5/M3 rival. With horsepower output of the coupe reported to be around 480, it will best the Audi and BMW by 30 and 66 horsepower, respectively.

Spy Photos: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe




The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe takes some dramatic styling cues from its bigger brothers in the Benz family with a drastic, two-slat grill from the CL, the double headlamps from the E-Class and a kinked C-pillar that looks to be from an Accord Coupe.

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-class Coupe AMG Spy Photos
AMG readies a direct competitor for BMW’s golden-boy M3.

Seen here is an AMG version of the upcoming C-class coupe, which is built on the same platform as—but is designed to cater to a younger customer base than—the E-class coupe. Power for AMG's C coupe will come from a slightly detuned version of Affalterbach’s new 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8. It will likely be turbocharged, although we've heard voices say a naturally aspirated version is not entirely unthinkable. A turbocharged V-6 is another possibility. What the coupe would be called is still up in the air and depends on what powers the vehicle—if it gets the turbo 5.5-liter, it will likely be called C63, but if it gets a naturally aspirated version of that engine or a six, the designation would almost certainly be different. Regardless of powerplant, top speed will be governed at 155 mph, but AMG will offer a package to increase top speed to a governed 174 mph.

Visual cues will include four large exhaust pipes, 18- or 19-inch AMG wheels, a sizeable rear spoiler that grows out of the shoulder line's upward kink, and an aero package. The front end will be dominated by large air intakes in the fascia with aggressive LED daytime running light strips. Inside, the AMG will have unique aluminum or carbon-fiber trim and sports seats.

The C-class coupe, by the way, won't remain the smallest AMG for long. We expect versions of the next-generation A- and B-class platform, potentially powered by a turbocharged four churning out upwards of 300 hp. But, with hairy V-8 muscle a near certainty—and with a Black Series sedan in the stable—the C-class is looking like the AMG project to watch.
