evo pulled the aloft duo calm on six abstracted occasions to acme an all-embracing champ in the BMW M3. However, the margins were slim: area the AMG fell bottomward dynamically, the M3 was composed and absolutely composed. Away from comparisons, the C63 is a accurate abstruseness and affably indulgent; acceptant to ample angles of slip, tyre-smoking activity and of advance boasting the archetypal AMG soundtrack.

Derived from the W204 C-class, the AMG C63 launched in the UK as a alehouse and estate, its M156 6.2-litre V8 developed 451bhp at 6800rpm and 442 lb ft of torque. Hooked up to AMG’s impressive, seven-speed torque advocate (Speedshift Plus 7G-tronic) chiral the C63 accomplished 0-60mph in 4.4sec and topped out at a (limited) 155mph. This was aloft to 174mph through the alternative Performance Pack, which additionally brought uprated abeyance and brakes, a carbonfibre cossack lid addle-brain and the all-important limited-slip differential. The closing was addled from the Performance Plus Pack, alien in 2010, forth with the higher-grade suspension.

The accepted and Performance Pack Plus engines are ‘pretty abundant bulletproof’ according to Ollie Stoner of Mercedes Specialist Prestige Car Service. Reports of aboriginal cars adversity from valve-gear abrasion (camshaft lobes and tappets) are accepted but rare, and arch bolts accept airtight but these occasions are rarer still.

An agent apple-pie can appear to as abundant as £8k, the top-end abandoned could be £3k-£4k. ‘The facelifted C63 [from 2011] is mostly trouble-free,’ says Ollie, ‘and is accompanying to a bigger gearbox.’ Oil burning is high, so you’ll charge to consistently analysis the dipstick.

With abundant ability comes abundant albatross – for the brakes. They appear in for a lot of abuse carriage the C63 bottomward from speed, auspiciously replacing them isn’t too expensive. Accepted advanced discs are £68, but a set of advanced pads are dearer at £200.

As accepted the berth is able-bodied busted together, but the advanced bench bolsters can ache from abrasion from admission and egress. The electrics are sound, but the software administering the agent and gearbox may be out of date, so booty it to a specialist to download the updates.
