Its M156 engine is one of the most coveted V8s developed in the recent decades, and not just thanks to the hair-raising exhaust sounds it delivers across its rpm range.
In the video below you will witness another measure of its greatness. The following C 63 AMG has been transformed into a drag racing monster by its owner by using the philosophy of Lotus' Colin Chapman: “Simplify, then add lightness.”
The engine hood and the trunk lid are now made of carbon fiber, the passenger seats including the rear bench have been removed while the driver uses a racing seat, the rear tires are now drag racing slicks and the original AMG exhaust, including the headers, have been replaced by an MHP one.
We have no power figures but the 10.84 seconds time in the quarter mile (402 meters) is a testament to the insanity this C 63 with almost no power mods. We are in awe.
