This car spec blows me away.

Huge monster of a V8. 450bhp and a fantastic spec in an ordinary looking C-class.

The gullwing is stunning, I'm a sucker for the tv ad they have on at the moment.

I like the new c class, best looking merc in ages as they were getting very dated looking.

Once got a ride in a c32 amg years ago, that was very quick

Presumably the cheap version as it's missing the headlamp washers and thus has old style halogen headlamps, also looks to have a cheap fibreglass front bumper kit!
Very cheap and very fast.............. :)

Drove this muther today and for a V8 its bloody brilliant. Naturally aspirated 450bhp - no superchargers or blowers here. Stupendous power - like it.

For £50k its only £16k more than the ZT260 was years ago.

Has me nearly convinced - GT-R is messing up my brain though.

He's just got back from the 'ring - some initial impressions from his co-pilot!

1) EPIC engine. EPIC EPIC EPIC... with a Brabus remap. E P I C.
2) KW Suspension now 85% setup is really good - the compression and rebound settings at the front are spot on, not too stiff and really well damped, and the rear is almost there. The rear dampers need to go off for custom revalving, but after that it will be perfect.
3) What an amazing noise. Utterly orgasmic.
4) It attracts attention in a way an M3 never will. It just looks like a serious beast. It has road presence galore. And the interior that Andrew has gone for is just beautiful.
5) Did I mention the engine and the noise?!

David - your friend sums it up very well.

I love it - especially £900 servicing contract for 3 years.

GTR is another league but the running costs are just stupid in comparison.

Oh and the noise of the C63 is well just orgasmic as mentioned above.

Well, it's a car I've always fancied - so put a deposit on it.

Xtras - LSD & privcy glass.

125 spec you get Command as a feebie.

Can only say both awesome cars the C and E AMGs.

Probably the best option getting one now as the M156 (6.2 V8) engine won't be around for much longer. Not sure how reliable the next gen engines will be.

BTW I'm a Merc mechanic so if you have any bother feel free to ask me :) (Even though you'll still have warranty for any problems).
