It is impossible that you would see a C63.Maybe someone has put a 63 badge on their car.

Bunny what you must have seen would be the C32 or 43 belonging to our famous cricketer. Was it silver in colour?

If it was an old square shape C-Class, maybe an earlier C36?

INTERNATIONAL ENGINE OF THE YEAR 2007

As you see not many Mercs there. Beamers all the way.

Apart from that and staying on the topic > I hate the C, E and S class as every guy who has the money and wants a fancy car in india can only think of a merc.. its just overrated and it plys as a taxi in many countires.

However the AMG tuned Merc is an exception to the rule. Lovely curves, inspired from the M3 in my opinion.

Another Merc I would not mind owning is the Brabus CLS. I prefer the Brabus CLS to the C63.. Why? a) cause its a CLS base and b) its got about 730bhp. 227 mph top speed which means about 360kmph .. The 5th gear review on this is awsome. link below



Fifth Gear: Brabus Rocket CLS pushed to 191 mph

do you know how much it costs???
North of 200K euros.One would get 4 C63's in that money.

And as far as the 0-60 figure is concerned Im sure if there was a 6.2 Liter 457bhp in the M3 it would whoop the C63!

On the other hand, I am not very satisfied with the four door M3 looks but the coupe definitely takes the cake.
