revolutionary outside then, and the same is true inside. a chunkier steering wheel; bolstered sports seats; and a ESP button — the C 63 AMG Coupé’s require menu-navigating to switch off its systems rather than a button prod.

Driving it: 4/5

Any car with AMG’s V8 engine in it is going to be rapid and the C 4.4-second 0-100km/h time is faster than the M3 and Audi RS times. The electronic limiter in at 250km/h, but AMG will raise if required.
