Mercedes-AMG has now unveiled the 2023 C43 sedan. The highlight of the vehicle is its powertrain, sharing the same hand-built 2.0-liter inline-four as the SL43 Roadster that’s capable of pushing out 402 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, translating to a 0-60 mph time of a mere 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 165 mph.

Its exceptional performance comes from the NANOSLIDE technology derived from the company’s very own Formula 1 cars, which allow for extremely low friction between the engine’s pistons and bore liner to increase both efficiency and wear-resistance. On top of this, the longitudinally-mounted engine features a turbocharger that’s equipped with an electric motor along with the usual exhaust-gas plumbing, meaning that the shaft can spin before exhaust gases come into play. The technology is also found in the Mercedes F1 team’s 1.6-liter V6 hybrids and significantly reduces turbo lag, improving acceleration response when you hit the throttle.

Power generated is then sent to all four wheels through the new C43’s AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G automatic transmission utilizing a wet clutch pack and the car’s rear-biased AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. The suspension system then comes in the form of steel springs with adaptive dampers that adjusts to your preferences depending on your settings, which range from Comfort, Sport, and Sport+. You’ll also get rear-wheel steering in the standard model as well as 14.6-inch brake discs with four-piston fixed calipers for the front wheels and 12.6-inch discs with single-piston floating calipers for the rear wheels.

There’s currently no pricing information yet for the 2023 Mercedes-AMG C43, but the company expects to deliver them in late 2022.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Chevrolet has announced that it’ll be taking the Corvette electric.
