Autocar Magazine determined the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and Audi R8 were the best cars for a drifting battle. After they picked their favorite driver’s/drifter’s cars, the drivers themselves began to compete for the title of “best driver/drifter”. It would be nice to see this turned into a yearly competition done comprehensively in the vein of Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car battle. If there is another drift challenge like this, I nominate the Stig.
Going out on a low note isn’t such a bad thing. Especially when that note is as low and sonorous as that played by the hand-built V8 of the Mercedes-Benz AMG 6.3 vehicles. Yes, 2014 is the end of an era. The 6.2-liter M156 and M159 units will soon go the way of the dodo, but don’t worry; twin-turbo 5.5L engines have started taking their spots, and the similarly blown 4.0L mill for the next-generation C63 should prove to be a worthy successor. Perhaps in the future those eight-bangers will make a list as revered as the one after the jump.
So, the C63 AMG is fast right? By normal car standards, absolutely. It’s got more power than the average, Corolla-loving motorist has any idea what to do with. In the hands of someone who knows that they’re doing, it’s absolutely formidable. All that speed—and the skill required to go that speed—pales in comparison to the […]
This reminds me of a movie biker gang when it revs its engines outside of (what I’m assuming is) Harrods. Fortunately for everyone around, there are no switchblades, chains or broken beer bottles — although the constant police sirens give the video an air of danger.
Our spy photographers have snapped a few photos of the C63 AMG wagon while it was out testing. These shots come hot on the heels of the redesigned 2015 C-Class’ debut. The biggest change coming to the next C63 AMG is a new twin-turbo 5.5-litre V8 that will replace the 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V8, bringing the […]
There are few better feelings in life than moving up to a higher class of automobile. That’s what has happened to forum member “Andriy242”. Andriy recently sold his Toyota Corolla; a car he had been driving since he was 18 years old. Now, at the ripe-old age of 23, he owns the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 […]
A lot of people wish that their iPhones were more integrated into their cars. Siri, as charming as she might be, is not the best co-driver. That’ll be changing in the coming months thanks to Apple’s latest feature, “CarPlay.” Essentially, CarPlay is feature that brings the Apple app ecosystem to the infotainment center in your […]
Have you ever been in the situation where a woman sitting across the table from you at a restaurant begins to brush her toe against your thigh, and you have to keep yourself from getting the stupidest look on your face because you are surrounded by about 100 members of the general public? Well, that’s […]
Aluminum is a long-time sweetheart of the auto industry. It’s been used in the Audi Space Frame for years. Jaguar crafts its vehicles out of the lightweight metal. Even the new Range Rover is made from it. On the domestic front, Ford will make its best-selling F-150 pickup out of aluminum starting with the 2015 […]
If you compare the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 coupe with the Audi RS 5 solely on the basis of name length, the Mercedes wins by a mile. If you compare both cars in their totality, things become more complicated. You may like the C63 more than the RS 5, but does it beat the […]
