2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 spy shots and video

Engineers from Mercedes-AMG have been spotted testing a prototype for an updated version of the C43 sport sedan.

The C43 replaced the C450 for the 2017 model year and is priced from just over $50k. It’s one of the tamer “AMG Sport” models offered by the Affalterbach tuner and like others in the “43” series, it comes with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 spitting out 362 horsepower.

For the updated model, likely due in 2018, as a 2019 model, the spy shots suggest tweaks to lights and bumpers at both ends and a completely new grille with a twin-blade design. There may also be new designs for the wheels and exhaust tips.
