The newest generation of C-Class has brought a more grown-up car. The introduction of the smaller entry degree CLA provided Mercedes-Benz room to maneuver the C to a slightly different position. It’s fast and loud without any sign of remorse for its antisocial behavior. It exists to destroy tires and melt faces. The company and the critics are both referring to it as a mini S-Class. So is the new C63S just a shrunken S63? In some methods, yes. In alternative methods, definitely no. The previous C63 is/was a beast, a great German muscle tissue car. Animalistic abilities blended with training and sophistication. It is nevertheless fast, however it isn’t loud (not all the time, at least), and it isn’t so blatant in its dislike of civilized driving. This new car is closer to Beast, aka Hank McCoy, trainer at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning.
Mercedes AMG will actually sell the C63 in both standard and S variations. Historically, nearly all customers purchase the S, because why wouldn’t you? An extra 34 hp, another 37 lb-ft of torque, electronic limited-slip differential, dynamic motor mounts, upgraded interior, and 19-inch tires for a mere 10 grand extra sounds like a bargain. The most effective form of the 6.2L C had been the Black Series at 510 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. Although I’ve driven both, allow’s focus on the C63S. This new 4.0L twin-turbo V-8 in S trim makes 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. That’s an extra 59 lb-ft. Plus, it is available from 1,750 rpm as much as 4,500 rpm. Those numbers are still staggering, but that big thumper of a V-8 made its top torque just north of 5,000 rpm.
