The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG offers staggering performance and agile handling; it boasts a seven-speed automatic gear box offering comfort, sport and manual settings. The paddle shift system can be configured in Sport, Comfort or Manual modes and is the first gearbox on a Mercedes AMG model to feature an automatic throttle blipping function for smoother downshifts.

At the heart of the Mercedes-enz C63 AMG is its 6.3-litre V8 which is directly derived from the one used in the AMG C-Class touring car in the German DTM race series. The Mercedes C63 AMG is capable of 0-6mpg in just 4.6 seconds and has an artificially limited 111mph top speed.

Visually the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG leaves you in no doubt that it isn’t an ordinary C-Class. The flared wheel arches accommodate the wider front and rear track. The grilles are filled in with a honeycomb pattern as are the air intakes sliced in to the under bumper area. Other standout features include 18” AMG alloys, side skirts, four chrome exhaust pipes and a subtle boot lid spoiler.

Prices for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG start at over £50,000 so it is never going to be the most affordable car to own but with one of these you will probably never be late for anywhere ever again.
