C63 AMG vs. Z4 M Coupe



Results aren't surprising.

at the guy's comment at the very end of the video.

NO kidding, almost twice the displacement! I am surprised that this comarison is even being made.
Alot closer with the RS4 vs. Mcoupe though:

If practicality wasn't a priority I'd take the M Coupe in a heartbeat. If it was, like at all, I'd go straight to the C63.

The C63 is faster in a straight line? Well, duh...

But do you want to drive a finely-honed, tactile sports car or an enormously powerful couch?

I know which one I prefer.

I was actually surprised by the video. I thought the C63 would have pulled harder.


Go to a ROAD COURSE please. That is why you buy a M coupe.

I completely agree. The C63 was not pulling as hard as I thought it was.

I raced an M roadster with about 600 pounds extra weight from passengers and trunk content. I pulled on it about as slowly as the C63 in this video did. Once you get to a certain point, cars don't really walk on each other like you would think.

The 63 pulled off rather quickly from the M Coupe, trouble is, it seems to pull away from the E92 M3 about that fast too. I love me E92 M3 and do prefer it to the 63, but wish Ms would be a tad quicker. Sure, on bends Ms are better, but the 63 is no slouch either. Not as much as we think.

True, if I wasn't interested in tracking my car I'd probably be cruising around in a C63. That exhaust note is intoxicating...

i wouldn't think twice about the c63 i mean if it were between the m3 and c63 it'd be hard to pick but with the m couple its a no brainier for me at least

Well, I suppose a proper comp to the M Coupe is got to be the SLK55 AMG and not the C63. And in that case, I think the SLK is ugly!!!!!
