As reported, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) will be looking to launch a number of what it calls its “Dream Cars” over the remainder of the year, and it looks like one model is coming up very soon.

An image posted on its Facebook post is clearly indicative of the launch of an AMG-specific model, due to take place this Friday, October 2. The only other thing that’s apparent is that the car in question will be able to perform its century sprint in 4.0 seconds.

What’s not been mentioned is the model specifically referred to here. Naturally, we can help with that – we’ve deduced it to just one unsurprising, but rather exciting, possibility: the Mercedes-AMG C 63.

That’s right, folks. Back in July, MBM said that the hot sedan was coming, and that it would be unleashed before the year’s end. Even the 4.0 second claim matches up, additionally leading us towards the more powerful C 63 S version specifically. Coupe? Well, we reckon it’s still a bit too soon for that to have made it here already, given the recency of its global debut.

Whether or not MBM will launch the non-S version or the Edition 1 this Friday, or at a later point, is yet to be known. To give you a bit of a recap, the all-new C 63 is equipped with Mercedes-AMG’s new 4.0 litre biturbo V8 engine, codenamed the M178, which first in the brand’s flagship sports car, the AMG GT.

There are also two states of tune, the first being the standard C 63, which puts out 476 PS from 5,500 to 6,250 rpm and 650 Nm of torque from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm. The more potent variant, which is the one we’re looking at here, delivers a monstrous 510 PS and 700 Nm of torque.

Both cars are equipped with an AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed transmission, which aid the regular C 63 to achieving the century sprint in 4.1 seconds, while the hardcore C 63 S dose the same in 4.0 seconds flat.

We can’t tell you any more than we already have about the coming model, nor do we have any info on what prices you can expect. In the past, MBM’s sole option of the previous-gen Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe retailed for RM781,888. We’ll be back Friday with more specifics, and pricing, of course.
