Default Rumour: Mercedes-Benz to bring C 450 AMG Sport to India

At the end of the day this isn't even a proper AMG. No hand assembled motor, racing seats, or even a sport exhaust. Just a bucket load of colorful stitching and badges.

It sits between the CLA 45AMG and the full-fat C63, so expect it to be stupidly priced somewhere near S Class money.

This ideally should be priced between the C Class & the CLA 45 AMG i.e in the 55-60L ex-showroom range. Thats where it belongs.

Just like how the Audi S4 was positioned.
