The Mercedes AMG C63 hire car packs a serious punch from its brawny V8 but a BMW M4 feels more agile to drive.
The Mercedes AMG C63 comes in no less than four different body-styles; most commonly a four door saloon, a more practical estate and a wind-in-your-hair cabriolet. Here, though, we’re looking at the Mercedes AMG C63 Coupe – arguably the most brutish of the four to behold. It goes toe-to-toe with another serious performance coupes, such as the BMW M4 and Audi RS5.
The latest C63 Coupe first went on sale in 2015 but it received a few tweaks in 2018 to help it keep pace with the likes of the BMW M4. Outside, you’ll notice a new grille (inspired by the AMG GT sports car), some modified bumpers with new air intakes and a set of redesigned 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside you’ll find a new nappa leather sports steering wheel with redesigned multifunction buttons and selectors for the car’s driving modes and traction control settings. There’s also a new 12.3-inch digital cockpit which swaps the car’s standard analogue dials for a more visually appealing digital set that’s crammed with customisable information.
Using Mercedes new 4.0 twin turbo V8, it certainly has the power associated with the AMG devision models.
Producing 503bhp and 516lb ft of torque this car can comfortably out perform nearly every other car in its class. That’s without even taking into consideration that glorious soundtrack that AMG manage to unleash in these cars.
