WOW!

The most agressive Merc (among the regular Mercs) and the most agressive AMG. Nice combo!

457bhp? 600 NM?

I would get the S class and be happier. But any pricing info available? When does it launch?

you cannot compare a Performance AMG cost with an S-class,especially when the car is not officially not sold here.

The AMG insanity continues, but whos complaining! Does it have 4matic? And why of why does AMG not provide 6-speed shifters!

Nice car but I would still prefer the M3 anyday over this! Partly also because atleast they provide a proper 6-speed manual.

they are working on a dual cluth sequential trans,it think it will appera on the next AMG E.But this new trans is fully modified and now provides the most important downshift blips that the 7-speed auto lacked.Also it has fully manual mode(no redline upshifts) controlled via the steering paddles.No 4matic but LSD is available with sports pack.Top speed can be increased to 174mph

Also the TCS and ESP can be fully turned off.you can read the reviews here.

you saw a C63

This is the first C ever to get the 63 engine and was launched(photo launch) today.It is not available for sale anywhere in the world yet.It will premiere at the Frankfut show in Sept 07.
What you must have seen will be a C55 or C32.
