KTW has also disabled the Vmax speed limiter so that prospective buyers can allow themselves to get lost in all that horsepower. Of course, the idea is that owners will only test their limits at appropriate venues, such as actual tracks or the Autobahn. The performance tweaks offer a considerable improvement on the 451 hp of the 6.2L V8 engine of the stock Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. Aside from… Continue Reading »

Running a quarter mile in just 11 seconds is not an impossible feat for the Mercedes C63 AMG. However, this video is interesting because of who’s driving the car. A 60-year old woman who adores drag racing is behind the wheels of the super car. You read that right, 60-year old and drag racing. Doesn’t looks like these phrases could be together eh? But yes, in this clip, you can definitely watch this woman who even shared what’s in her Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG before she joined her husband, who I suppose is as old as she (or close?), on the track. The hubby drives a Dodge Viper.
In a video made by Chris Harris of Autoblog, he showed the C63 AMG Black Series being lined up against the BMW M3 GTS and Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and although it didn’t win against the Porsche, the previous clip did show that the C63 is one mean machine. To further prove its power, Mercedes-Benz released a new video where the vicious monster was strolling for a short time before it went on track and roared its V8 6.2L engine. Aside from its engine that gives out 510HP, the car is also known to have a great exterior that is emphasized by the generous LED treatment it has. Inside, you… Continue Reading »
