Seems like it would be a handful and extremely fun to drive, as Clarkson described it as, "An axe murderer with headlights."

The exterior of each car appeals to me, but when comapring the C63 and M3 sedan, my vote goes toward the C63 for the more dramatic styling. Also, with the black birdseye maple trim in the Mercedes, the interior (with the non-dual hump dash) of the C63 appeals to me more as well.

The M3 would be the better street/track hybrid car because of the handling and lower overall weight. However, I doubt the M3's ability as strictly a track car when leaving it with its stock configuration. Upgraded brakes seem to be a must, according to recent reviews.

I agree with you, since I'm not planning to take it to the track twice or three times a month, this car will be my daily drive car, I like the new C63 exterior and interior design, the M3 has some minor difference in the interior as my 335.
Everyone has some good points here, but I think that MB nailed the design and the HP this time.
