This C 63 AMG Exhaust is Louder Than a Police Siren

There aren't too many animal-related epithets that one can use to describe the sound of a Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG of the W204 variety, but just about any large predatory feline would probably do, with a lion or tiger being the closest.

The following car spotting video - shot in London by YouTube user 458MRP - starts pretty much like any other “here, have some awesome sounding C 63 AMG” footage you can currently find on YouTube, only this one has quite a bit of extra decibels.

So much extra decibels actually, that at one point in the video it is even heard over the siren of what appears to be a Hyundai i30 police vehicle on a mission.

The car's exhaust doesn't sound stock, but the rear exhaust tips are, which makes us think it either has been decatted or that it sports an increasingly common in London Innotech Performance exhaust system.

Either way, there are probably not that many sedans out there that sound more ferocious than this otherwise stock-looking Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG, one of the last cars to be powered by a member of the legendary M156/M159 family of V8 engines.

With a displacement of 6.2 liters and naturally-aspirated, the M156 underneath the car's hood is one of the greatest sounding engines in recent history on its own, but when paired with a less restrictive exhaust system sounds like a mechanical demon's roar, which it actually is for some people.

Outputting 457 hp and 600 Nm (442 lb ft) of torque in its least powerful form, it not only talks the talk but it also walks the walk, especially sideways. We're going to miss it.
