While the C350 coupe is a highly competent car that will dish out acceptable performance, it is its evil twin, the C63 AMG that will make owners of competing cars quake in their driving shoes. This mutation gives lucky buyers a 6.3-liter mill that puts out 487 horsepower in a medium-sized bodyshell. The power-to-weight ratio resulting from this unholy alliance should give even the most jaded driver a grin on his face.
As a sleeper car, the 4-door C63 AMG was a perennial favorite to blow the doors off unsuspecting wannabes, while carrying a couple of friends along. However, the new C-Class’ lines are too beautiful to be ignored and a big displacement engine in a small body has long been a tried and proven formula to automotive performance bliss. In this regard, the C63 AMG coupe truly fits the bill.
