Mercedes-Benz has been teasing its C63 AMG Coupe quite a bit lately. Recently, it teased the car on Facebook, with a handful of images of the C63 on a track. It got our attention pretty quickly, as the C63 AMG sedan is one of the better sports sedans on the market, probably second to only the M3.
And the previous C63 AMG Coupe was an absolute riot. So naturally, we’re all curious to see what all the hubbub is about.
Well, the folks in Affalterbach have teased us once more, except this time it’s with video. A very short video, consisting of a bunch of very short clips of a racing driving readying the car for a lap, has surfaced on YouTube. This sort of teaser marketing isn’t new, but it’s working. As much as I’d prefer the M3 to the C63, this has me deeply intrigued. Mercedes-Benz and AMG clearly knows what their doing.
In the video, the driver closes the hood, shuts the door, gets in, adjusts mirrors, checks systems and starts the 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8. The one thing the C63 AMG has over the M3 is engine sound. That V8 sounds glorious, especially considering that it has two noise-sucking turbos attached to it. But this extremely short clip has me jealous of the driver and wanting to get behind the wheel of the AMG-powered beast.
The last C63 Coupe was a very good car, indeed. And the 507 edition was even better. it was a car that rivaled the M3 in an entirely different manner. The M3/M4 is all precision, it can cut corners like it’s a scalpel for the road. But the C63 was madness, roasting its rear tires at will simply because it could. There’s a certain likability to a car that is designed solely for the purpose of being insane. And considering how powerful the 4.0 liter engine is in the current C63 sedan, I’m assuming this coupe will be similar to its predecessor.
I’m not sure how good it will be, how it will stack up to the M3/M4, but this video certainly has me intrigued. Mercedes sought out to get our attention, and it’s certainly gotten mine. I wonder how it will stack up against the M4.
