Garage List
Front fenders are great. Rear fenders are a bucket of weak sauce.

Am I the only one that hates AMG and mostly all MB exhaust? Make shit round, the way it should be.

I'm just going to pretend like the silver tape job doesn't exist.

I want those wheels on my 2015 Mustang.

On track though, welp, it looks exactly like we expected it to. Remove the decals and it's pretty tasteful, but nothing surprising

Edit: are those center lock? Or is that a cover.

Handsome, but very predictable. First gen C63 was much more aggressive though. Perhaps the wide fenders we saw were for a BS model in the future. Not fond of the red GTi accents though.

Curb weight (90% fuel, 68 kg driver, 7 kg luggage):
C63: 1785 kg
C63s: 1800 kg

Still a bit portly, IMO.

Agreed, would make an awesome autobahn cruiser but i would not take it to do any serious track work unless my budget on tires and brakes would be unlimited.

Ive always seen it like this: For street driving and highway blasting the c63 is unmatched by the M cars. For any serious canyon carving or track work buy the M cars. AMG is basically German Muscle that can handle but not quite as good as any car of the M division. And Audi's RS division is just plain for yuppies.

Pretty much what I was expecting...E63 Front and rear like most Benz today. Love the wheels though...And that's pretty heavy. I kind of like the look over the M3/M4.

Love it. I can't be mad over the weight. There's a V8 up front. I prefer the looks over the competition. LOVE the Wheels.

The decals are for the Edition 1 cars.

My W204 C63 exhaust tips are lovely ovals.
