Unless you want a swift kick to the nuts, never, EVER, try to challenge a Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S 4MATIC to a drag race.
When the 670-horsepower C63 AMG’s tires hit the Russian dragstrip, it whooped the asses of a 700-hp Corvette Z06, a 700-pony BMW F10 M5 and an 830-horsepower Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG.
Another drag race, and another chance to see a W211 E55 AMG beat a big-bad American straight-line performer at its own game.
If this thing had racing gauges and an exterior devoid of CLK elements, I would care about it less than Wile E. Coyote cares about The Road Runner’s well-being.
Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz: a rivalry that triggered the age of titans.
Lewis Hamilton has a bit of fun with comedian James Corden running an SL65 AMG around Rockingham Motor Speedway.
Fast sedans wearing the letters AMG are nothing new, but this 10-Second E63 is just redonkulous. Yes, that’s a technical term.
This happens every time I watch a Mercedes-Benz race a Mustang. The Mercedes says goodbye to the starting line like a player leaving the scene of a one-night stand. The Mustang leaves the starting line screaming and protesting like someone being arrested on an episode of “Cops”.

This week’s Wednesday wallpaper showcases Ayrton Senna’s W201 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16. The BMW M3, and now the M4, owe their existence to this car. If it weren’t for this Mercedes’ success in competition, BMW would have never developed the M3.
