New 2009 Mercedez C63 : Reviews and Specs

Following the philosophy of talking softly and carrying a big stick, the C63 comes off as almost boring in its inside execution. There is black everywhere

The C63’s 6.3-liter V8 is a work of art. And it is also the work of one pair of hands. Hand-built in the AMG works in Affalterbach, it prominently displays a build plate with the engine builder’s signature in the area over the intake manifold. The rest of the engine room is sublime, as is its performance.
About performance: Of the cars in the competitive set, the C63 AMG, with 451 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, is the class of the field, and trumps its closest competitor, the Audi RS4 by 31 horses. Torque-wise, the C63 surpasses the Lexus IS-F, which is whipped handily by a 72 lb-ft advantage over its 371 lb-ft. The Cadillac CTS-V did offer a 400 hp / 395 lb-ft engine choice, but it is currently out of production.The amazing thing about the C63 AMG is that before we pulled out the Monroney window sticker to check on pricing, we were anticipating an as-tested price north of $72,000. We were too high. All this could be had for $66,160, transportation included.
