REV TO THE LIMIT
Full disclosure, this is the car I drive so I am totally biased. When I was looking to lease a car a few years ago I checked out all the usual suspect, BMW M3, Audi RS4 and of course the Mercedes C63 AMG. After driving all of them it was an easy decision, the C63 AMG was the most fun.
Well, the current naturally aspirated C63 AMG is going away soon. It is going to be replaced by a twin-turbo V8 which will likely be awesome. However, the is just something about a normally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 and that level of immediacy that can't be matched by a blower motor.
Check out Chris Harris take the final Edition 507-equipped wagon around a racetrack, mostly sideways. Chris Harris has released this tribute video to summarize his thoughts on the car which are really positive. What made the Mercedes C63 AMG something of a legend was its naturally-aspirated M156 6.2 liter V8 engine as well as crisp handling and a soundtrack that was utterly addictive. This engine and that car really deserve a special send-off.
One video wasn't enough so we also found some of our favorite Youtube videos to share with you. We've said it before that AMG makes the best V8s. Listening to the videos below you can see why. That 6.2 liter V8 engine is special. Enjoy.
