It doesn't come as much of a surprise that Mercedes-Benz has green lit the GLC Coupe concept for production. The production model will be introduced after the company unveils the GLC and the GLS, according to Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber.

We also learnt that a few of the elements from the concept won't be making it to production. Chief engineer Eberhard Kelz said that both the slender mirrors and aggressive exhaust system won't be making it to production.

We don't know what engine will be in the GLC Coupe for sure, but chances are it will get the same engines as the C-Class, and there may be an AMG variant with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that makes 476 PS and 650 Nm of torque.

I think that the luxury brands have learnt with performance models there is a sort of "if you build it, they will come" type mentality with the public. They just make a performance version of every model they make.

Yes but there are also packaging constraints... That Motor is probably about the size of an A class...

So do you believe that they will be able to fit it in there?

There are also smaller engines that are still pretty powerful that companies can use. I don't think that the size of the engine at this point is really a constraining factor. They can just load it with turbos and superchargers now, can't they?

But as long as it fits I don't really see what the problem is. They can't sell the car if the engine doesn't fit inside, but even if its tight, does that really matter?
