Remember when we met Sabine and her Mercedes A 45 AMG taxi? While Sabine’s car may just be the fastest taxi in Austria (it’s definitely the coolest), today we want to talk about what is probably the quickest taxi in Germany. And yes, we’ll stay in the Mercedes-Benz area.
A C 63 AMG’s 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8, or M156, as friends like to call it, should be enough to bring home the aforementioned title, but this C63 AMG was even more German than that, packing a supercharger. Excuse us, we meant kompressor.

Yes, that’s right, the stock engine wasn’t enough, so this cab now packs 660 PS and, probably the passengers’ favourite, a peak torque of 750 Nm (553 lb-ft). The force-feeding job was taken care of McChip Dkr and, for the course of the past eight months, this AMG has been delivering quite a set of thrills.

The cab is run by a company called Taxi South Recklingshausen, which doesn’t appear to be at its first adventure with a custom vehicle. For the sake of sensations, even the background of the pic above shows a Chrysler 300. Yes, that American sedan that features W211 Mercedes E-Class bits and pieces. We told you we’ll be staying in the three-pointed star zone.

As for those wondering if the ubiquitous E-Class plays any role in this story, the answer is “yes”. Actually, it’s a multiple yes, since the company owns a whole fleet of them from sedans and wagons (that T-Modells for you aficionados) to stretched incarnations.
