It's hard to imagine what goes through the mind of a Mercedes-AMG owner who borrows the McDonalds logo for the AMG badge on his car. And yet it looks like the aficioando behind the wheel of the C63 Coupe that brought us here did just that.
As you can notice in the social media post at the bottom of the page, the posterior of the Affalterbach machine now wears the logo of the junk food chain.

And while this is the world wide web, so we could always be dealing with a rendering, the images appear to be legit.

So, can anybody think of a reason for doing this? Well, now that Mercedes-AMG is selling cars at a rate never before imagined, not least thanks to the introduction of an entire turbo-four lineup, perhaps those who own good old V8s wish to set themselves apart from the said genre.

On a more serious note, driving a performance machine, whether it's a hot hatch or a supercar, it not enough to stand out on social media these days - after all, we probably wouldn't have talked about this C63 Coupe if it had the factory badges...

Interestingly, the branding scheme used by the German coupe is not unlike that of the Instagram account that brought the machine to our attention - look closely and you'll notice that the Burger King logo used by the said account isn't exactly the same you'd find on a junk food location belonging to the American giant.

Returning to the faux badging matter, you should know this is turning into a social media trend nowadays. For instance, the owner of a 2020 Toyota Supra decided to beat the "it's just a BMW" haters at their own game and fitted badges of the Bavarian automaker to his car using some stickers.
