The current C63 AMG's no slouch, but the old-style snout's quickly seemed out-of-place. The slight enhancement to the front of the 2012 Mercedes C63 AMG brings so much crease you'll slice your cornea if you stare for too long.

Aesthetic enhancements aside, the new C63 AMG's not all that different from the outgoing version. It offers the same 457 6.2-liter V8, instead of downsizing to the 5.5-liter V8, and adds a new AMG MCT 7-speed transmission. There are also the expected tweaks to the suspension for better handling and a few other refinements.

It'll go on sale this summer after a coming out party in Geneva. The delicious wagon will remain, sadly, a Euorpean treat for now. [via Carscoop]
