Probably not, but I am sure he would say that the 443lb-feet of torque and the sound the C63 produces quickly makes him forget about an under-torqued 4 litre motor wheezing away at 8K rpm to pull 3,600lbs.

Different philosophies. AMG was racing cars and Mercedes winning formula one championships before BMW knew what a sports car was.



They are both great motors. Get over it.
