Obviously not a direct competitor to our cars, but I wonder how the new CRT Sedan and the M3 GTS stack up. Looks pretty awesome to me and I don't like Mercedes.

I guess now we know why BMW is afraid to sell an E92 CSL here in the US.

The "Black" refers to the "black series", not the color of the car.

Wow Amazing! I dont really care for the C64 AMG coupe very much but that black series is the bee's knees! The wider fenders make it look SO much better. It looks like a miniature CLK63. I want it! I bet the price is going to be at least 100k.

I was never a fan of Mercedes but I'd take this over any BMW except maybe the GTS. But hot damn this thing is sexy.

I read your post and the fact that you didnt care for the red and automatically thought in my head, I bet he drives a white car. And then I look over at your pict and I was right lol.

On the other hand, I like the red C63 AMG Black but I also drive a red car so it appeals to me.

Holy sh!t that looks fantastic. Going to be curious to see how it sells if it's north of $100K. I love that wide look......do you hear us BMW? You put the exaggerated flared fenders on the 1M why not the M3?

I don't know if the average M3 buyer wants something so flashy or aggressive looking. What if it made him look like an immature boy racer at the country club or business meeting? The widened track and its handling advantage just wouldn't be worth the risk to the average M3 buyer demographic.
