C63S Car of the Year by Esquire TV and its magazine




This whole process is never easy. Yes, we drive every new car on the market. No hardship, and just as much fun as you'd think. It's the winnowing that's hard. In the beginning, there are two groups: Clunkers and Good Ones. You throw out the former, leave the latter. Then you divide again, into Good and Better. Then again, into Great and Amazing

And then it gets itchy.

If a car has made it into these pages, we think it's pretty fantastic. Beyond that, the big lesson—the takeaway you get from driving the best cars in the world—is that taste is everything. Good machinery is like good food: Just because something's spectacularly crafted doesn't mean you will like it. And vice versa.

After hours of discussion, arguments, and banter, the vote was unanimous: The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 is what we want in a car, but also what we think most of you want. Understated, yet with a healthy dose of style. Gobs of power, more than you need, but not to the point of being irresponsible. Costly but not unreachable; versatile but focused. The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 is efficient and seamlessly powerful, brutal yet docile in traffic. It whomps and crackles, the noise alone threatening to peel your hair off your scalp. The interior is beautifully crafted, full of wonderfully satisfying touches—the clicking of the crosshair dash vents! the substantial thunk of the door handles!—but not ostentatious. You can do the silly, terrible things you can do in a Hellcat, but you won't burn fuel like a 747. You can travel long distances with ease—no waiting for a battery charge every few hours—which you can't do in a Tesla. You don't have to explain away subpar details, as you do with the Cadillac.

These are all fine machines, but the Mercedes requires no caveat. Like all balanced fast cars, it's simultaneously calming and thrilling. The people who built it seem to understand the importance of focus, restraint, and joy. It's a thing for you, for us, for the closet wild man and the calm adult and just about everyone in between. It's a toe-curling, *****-out riot, fast as hell and properly balanced. It's the Esquire Car of the Year.

very on point, these are all the exact reasons why I decided and was excited to buy the car. And is still very happy with the purchase.

The only disagreeable in the article is
"the clicking of the crosshair dash vents! the substantial thunk of the door handles"

It wasn't something that impressed me. Not that it was a negative impression, but just nothing worth a mention.

I suppose, in other cars, they might have had sub par vents and door thunk.
