2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG: The Review

While the BMW M3 was shopping for a new shirt at J. Crew and the Audi RS4 was studying for its SATs, the Mercedes C63 AMG was the car was hanging out under the bleachers cigarettes and trying to hook up all the cheerleaders.

But is that reputation or just an outdated stereotype? I spent a few days with a new C63 to find out.

( Full . Mercedes wanted me to drive the new AMG C63 so bad dropped one off outside the office a full tank of gas and told me to it. I used that full of gas to make a lot of noise which numerous woodland creatures and grown adults.)

When the M3 was first released, it was a What was once BMW’s and butter small car was completely into a track crushing Naturally, Mercedes and Audi suit with cars the 190 Cosworth and RS2. Even they were interesting with a lot to love, they never able to match the M3 in category.

Over the years, has taken a number of swipes at the M3 in the of the AMG C-Class. Each one has come but they’ve only been wounds. While the firepower the hood has always been it also left the Merc in a of tire smoke every it tried to keep up with an M3 in the bits.

But with the latest generation AMG Mercedes realized that they need to do is embrace the wild child reputation and their dreams of beating all the of the M3. The latest weapon, the V8-powered is bad fast in a straight line, terrifying around corners, and a noise that could sovereign nations to immediately go to

Staying with the wild theme, the C63 wears enough jewelry to fit right in at a Suicide SXSW party. It’s bedazzled and pierced with flares, vents, carbon chrome, LEDs and badges It can be a bit much to take in.

Even I tend to prefer performance with an understated exterior the RS4 or a purposeful look like the M3, I to give Mercedes props for the outward appearance of the C63 match the over-the-top driving experience.

Having spent some earlier this year in an I see some shared bits the family. That is not a bad thing at The instruments are easy to read, COMAND multimedia interface is to understand and use, and the wheel — is covered in Alcantara — is the perfect and feels great in your

I won’t mince The C63 is freaking fast. And the car I was given had the AMG Package which is good for an 30 horsepower. It gets to 60 in a claimed 4.3 which I believe may actually be With 481 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of hitting the ground through 255-series 18-inch tires, it has a bit of successfully transforming the power forward motion in first and

It does have launch which Mercedes calls START (No, I’m not it’s supposed to be in all caps). have to take their that it works wonders I didn’t have a clear piece of road to try it. Plus, I feel like getting a

I don’t think this car stop quicker if you drove it into a brick wall. The AMG Braking System that as part of the Development Package is fantastic.

While the performance is fantastic, the is lacking a tad. I’d a more progressive pedal of instant bite from the which is what I’ve from other AMG products as Pedal feel here is an than others I’ve but it still feels a bit like an switch instead of the analog I desire.

The suspension of the C63 is nearly the equivalent of a touring car. is one firm chassis that let you forget it is when you are on backroads. of floating around with no to the road, the C63 feels like plugged in. You feel bumps and It might be closer to rock than pillow soft on the scale, but I like it that

Yet on the highway, it somehow feels a big, comfortable, and slightly Mercedes. It glides along no worries. It’s like a and Hyde car in how it behaves on different AMG has done a great job on the tuning.
