Introduction

The outgoing W204 C 63 will go down in history as one of the all-time greats, if only for the soundtrack that the monstrous 6.2l V8 made. It was a car that won the hearts and minds of many because of the way it handled round a circuit and monstered its way down a straight line.

So then whatever is to follow has big shoes to fill, not least because we know that the engine will inevitably be shrunk. As it is with just about all cars these days (much more so with high performance ones) the environment has taken centre stage and huge, Earth-killing engines must be throttled back.

The almighty AMG with all its fury is no exception, but has elected to stick to its guns and continue building V8 engines, albeit shrunk quite a fair bit and stuck with two turbochargers. What they have kept too, is the noise. Something immediately apparent when you fire up the engine for the first time. Oh and in my case, in a basement carpark; good start to the morning.

But back to the car in question. At first glance, it appears to be nothing more than a blinged out C-Class saloon, until you take a closer look.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
