The Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG is the most potent version of the German automaker's C-Class sedan. The car delivers a whopping 457 horsepower, putting it comfortably ahead of BMW's all-new M3. With that amount of performance on tap, and a price to match the M3, Mercedes looks to steal at least a few sales away from its cross-country rival.

BMW M3 Sedan: I handle better!
C63: Fuck you, I'm insane!
Audi RS4: I'm more refined!
C63: Fuck you, I'm insane!
Lexus IS-F: I'm... oh wait.
C63: Exactly. But fuck you anyway, I'm INSANE!

Cool.

It's reasonably badass but that's cancelled out by the chunky styling and automatic-only. Plus, how cool are Mercedes, really?

Neutral.

They used a big engine so it actually has toque. And it's a front heavy tail happy deamon which if you ever hear it flogged in person you should have your ballz revoked if you still say it isnt cool.

And you know Merc could have sold this car for more like they tend to do, but they made it priced alike to the M3. I'd honestly rather have this car 29 days out of the month over an M3.

Cool. Full Stop. Razor puts it so well.
Anyone who thinks it isn't cool has to drive it. I have driven both the sedan and the estate, and they fuckin rock. It does not matter what anyone thinks of Merc, or 'how cool are they really'..... drive this thing and you WILL KNOW it is cool.It is really one of the most entertaining drives you will ever have. No Arguments.

Gives the M3 a real run for its money, while maintaining its own distinct character. Cool.

My favorite Merc atm...I saw one the other day, and it really looks and sounds superb.

I really like the new C class. Every time I see one I admire it.

The C63 AMG on the other hand, looks a bit too body-kitish for my tastes. Also, I would feel like a huge dork every time I saw an E90 M3.

I really like the new C63. It sounds absolutely fantastic ... 10/10 on the noise it makes. It also has a wild side which is refreshing for a Mercedes and while it cant hold a candle to the M3 in terms of track performance, AMG atleast took one step in that direction compared to the last model. Its my 2nd choice of the lot .. first obviously has to be the CTS-V.

It may not handle as well as the M3, but this thing is still a beast, it gets a well deserving COOL.

You've feel like a dork next to a four-door M3? Or are you picturing a M3 coup like everyone seems to do?
Bjorn
I think the four door M3 is a much better looking car than the C63 AMG, and from what I have read it is a bit more of a scalpel to the AMG's axe (meaning it better suits my personal taste).
