C 63 AMG Non-Facelift vs E 500 Facelift Battle in Exhaust Sounds

The following exhaust sound comparison is pretty much like making an arm-wrestling video between The Rock and Peter Dinklage – you know who is going to win but it's fun to watch anyway.

In the left corner we have the window-breaking Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG W204. Its epic M156 engine is the stuff legends are made of – sound legends, that is.

It develops 457 hp (451 bhp) and 600 Nm (443 lb ft) of torque from a 6.2-liter, normally-aspirated V8 that in various stages of tune can develop up to 631 hp (622 bhp) and 650 Nm (479 lb ft) of torque. In our point of view, there is no other stock production V8 engine on the planet that sounds better than the M156/M159.

In the right corner we have the facelifted Mercedes-Benz E 500 W212. Powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V8, it develops 408 (402 bhp) and coincidentally the same amount of torque as normally-aspirated C 63 AMG – 600 Nm (443 lb ft).

From what we understand, there is also a drag race staged between the two models, but until then we're just going to settle for the soundtrack battle for now.
