Saw A C63 AMG Today!

So, I was taking out the 500E after a long winter hibernation here in Lake Geneva and what do I see in town,,,, a C63 AMG! I was so excited! I hope he lives here in town. Not enough Benz owners here. Most of the rich folk around here drive Escalades and the occasional Ferrari. Anyway, I found my new dream car. Hopefully I have one sooner than later.

A 6.3 liter V8 in a C-class. Yikes. Someday I am going to one of the "AMG Events" I don't care if I am the poorest non-AMG MB owning person there either.

Then you could have done a twin tubo upgrade and tried him again.

The C class on crack! I love it!

In theory they can get a lot more power out of that engine, considering the size of that car that would be insane!

this is one of those cars that should not have traction control. Like the Bugatti Vernon it should have a separate key that must be put in the car to get the extra horse power. If you buy that car you dont need traction control.

No with that much power going to the rear wheels you want traction control.

MB should include an off button, that would be nice.

The C63 actually has three traction control settings. The last option is completely off.

Wow MB finally installed a traction control system that has an off position!

Now if only we could get a stick!
