Good to see the multi-piston setups aren't automatically better.

So they are very close up to 160km/h after that the more powerful C63 is faster.

And in the slalom and lane change tests the M3 was much faster.

Isn't the M3 lighter?? That might be why.

It probably is a combination of factors: tires, overall weight, center of gravity, presence of a LSD, steering, suspension tuning, wheelbase, overall length, etc.

Nice find! People are really hell bent on comparing these two cars. Props to AMG for finally producing a good handling product.

Just what I expected

Thanks for that. Sure wish I read German.

I think this is exactly what most of us (as least most of us "in the know") expected. The AMG edging out the M3 just a bit on straight line acceleration (it does have 450+ hp and 440+ ft lb after all...) and the M3 besting the AMG on handling. Nice to see a whole extra star given to the M3 as well. Certainly a drivers race either way. I am patiently waiting for the Nurburgring times for both (any track data would be nice).
