The track might've been just right for the C63's combination of power and weight.

Check the more important specs. 0-200 km/h clearly shows the Caddy stomping everyone else. 14s vs the M3's 15.6s. That's definitely not faster.

All these launches are slower than the auto review averages. 0.2s slower to 60 could be chalked up to nothing more than traction issues as a result of poor surfaces. Or not factoring in rollout (which I can't stand) like most US mags do. Or even the fact that 100 km/h translates to 62 mph, not 60.
So what does the US magazines do? Take flying starts when doing 0-60?

The difference 0-60 or 0-62 is actually quite much, but rolling starts WTF?
