The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is the most potent version of the German automaker's C-Class sedan. The car delivers a whopping 451 horsepower, putting it comfortably ahead of BMW's all-new M3.nlike the M3's small displacement V8; the C63 uses a big 6.2-liter V8. The C63's power plant is good for 443 lb-ft of torque and 451 horsepower.
The torque curve of the engine is just as impressive as its output: from 2000 to 6250 rpm the driver always has more than 360 pound-feet on tap - ideal for powerful acceleration in any engine speed range. The Electronic Stability Program offers a variety of settings.
In "ESP ON" mode, the onset of handling instability leads to braking intervention at one or more of the wheels, accompanied by a reduction in engine torque. Briefly pressing the ESP key activates "ESP SPORT". Prolonged pressure on the ESP key activates "ESP OFF," whereby there is no intervention.
There is no doubt that Mercedes-Benz is squarely taking aiming at BMW's M3 with its all-new C63 AMG Sedan, and that rivalry will be reflected in the car's price. Mercedes has announced that its C63 AMG will come with a base sticker price of $58,200.
