Is the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe the best all-round AMG?

Automobiles
[NOISE] Welcome to the Mercedes AMG C63 S coupe. It's Merc's turbocharged answer to the likes of the BMW M4, Lexus RC F and Audi RS5. And I think it's a bit of a looker. The only thing it has in common with it's more pedestrian-bodied style cousins is the roof. the boot lid and the [UNKNOWN] doors. The rest is all bespoke for the coupe it's absolutely stunning. Power comes from a four liter twin turbo charged engine that is extra kicks out 503 rate horsepower 516 pounds of torque. Naught to 62 is in 3.9 seconds. And its top speed is 155 miles per hour, unless you select the driver's package. That gets you some driving lessons, so you can handle this thing, and a limited top speed of 180 miles per hour. Largely useless unless you have a test track our an autobahn at your disposal, but still, pretty damn cool. Now, AMGs are all pretty special. Here's why. So there's a new C63 and this time, it's a coupe. So what's the deal with all the AMG lust then. And why will the two door C class be the one to watch? Those are two very easy questions to answer. AMGs are hard to dislike. They come with immense internal space and make absolutely incredible noises and the engine is a C63 is not too far removed from the one in this AMG. GTS sports car. And these things sound amazing. Have a listen to this. [SOUND] The AMGs velocity has never been to create a hard-edged racecar for the road. Well, apart from the black series cars but those are a special case. Instead, they're about going very quickly in comfort and having sincerely fun along the way, which is why this C63 coupe may end up being the perfect AMG. Allow me to explain. The C class is a sensible car. It's the one you buy if you want to swift mode of transport to take family, friends, that stuff around. You can have a sensible diesel, or a super smooth petrol. It's an it car that will blend in to pretty much any situation and has that tiny air of class to it, and it's key looks good in your hand or on the table in font of you. It's the kind of thing you get to show off your success and to make others a tiny bit jealous of how well you have done for yourself. The AMG version of the Coupe is a step above. A car that has room for family and what have you, but a rakish look. One that's more about style than space. Its engine will let people know you've arrived long before you actually park up, and the smile on your face will let the guy in the baby-spew stained C250 CDI know that, while his progeny may be the light of his life, Lighting up your ears is more important to you, but you're ready for little people when they come along. It's an everything car, but with a snarl. Weighing in at 1,725 kilos, it's hardly a featherweight, but it makes up for all that girth with power. It's the most powerful car in its class. And Merc says despite all of that, it'll manage nearly 33 miles to the gallon and kick out just 200 grams per kilometer of carbon dioxide, which is manically impressive, when you consider the weight and the power and the speed and everything. Advantage. Now, it's also probably gonna be one of the best [UNKNOWN] in its classes as well because that kind of AMG schtick. You've got changeable driving modes and fiddle [UNKNOWN] traction control. So, you can either drive through town nice and slowly or go everywhere with the rear tires smoking and the **** hanging out, driver's choice. Now, if the saloon is anything to go by, then this It's going to be spectacular. [BLANK_AUDIO]
