The Mercedes-Benz C 450 AMG 4Matic sedan, conversely, is slower at 4.9 seconds, although is features a 3.0-liter biturbo V6 with 367 horsepower on tap. What mods did Volvo give the T6 mill?
Changes in the standard Drive-E T6 engine include “a bigger turbo, new conrods, new camshafts, a bigger air intake, and also a higher capacity fuel pump.” On an ending note, probably the most impressive detail concerning this engine is that it sips fuel as an alternative to drinking it, with Volvo promising a fuel economy of 7.8 liters per 100 km.
