Jeremy wanted a very specific Mercedes-AMG C63 so we had to place the order and wait for it to be custom built. He wasn’t sure he could wait…but he ended up happy that he did!
His Review from Cars.com:
I have purchased many cars over the years and I must say that this was the absolute BEST experience ever! Jesse Cannon-Wallace was my sales rep (highly recommend her!). She exceeded every one of my expectations. From the way she handled the test drive to the custom order process to the price negotiation and finally to the delivery of the car – it was all flawless. It was almost surreal because I had never experienced a buying experience quite like this. It should always be this easy, but never is. I honestly can’t think of any issues encountered in the entire process.
The one thing that stood out most was the level of customer service that she provided. I custom ordered my car so it took 3 long months. Not one time did I have to contact her for an update. She consistently gave me updates down to the day it arrived. I can’t put into words how much that meant to me as my past experience with other dealers was quite the opposite.
I know this review sounds a bit over the top in relation to my kudos to Jesse and Atlanta Classic Cars, but I will say with complete conviction that this was the very best buying experience I have ever had!
It does not seem to be common knowledge that the Keyless Go button is removable! Here’s a quick video is a gorgeous car about how to do it!
This beauty is on the showroom floor if you would like to see it for yourself!

Here is the link for the 2016 schedule. Coming back to Road Atlanta for my convenience!
It was an exciting race weekend for Mercedes AMG Petronas and Lewis Hamilton! The US Grand Prix in Austin looks like a spectacular venue and a little rain couldn’t keep the enthusiastic crowds away! I hope to attend some day!
It’s great to be on the winning team!
This week I was able to drive the C450 and the C63 back to back! It was great to experience the similarities and the differences in these two vehicles in person, rather than on paper! This was a street course, not a track event, so my impressions are based on real driving conditions around Atlanta not crazy track behavior!
Notice that the AMG designation comes after the model info. That tells you that while the C450 has a lot of AMG components, it is not a one man, one engine car.
The C450 AMG is going to be a very successful model! It has some of the aggression of the AMG while remaining an easy daily driver. The AMG tuned bi-turbo V6 has more power than I could use in traffic! It accelerates quickly and smoothly in Comfort mode and then gets a little bit more aggressive in Sport Plus.
I have driven this vehicle many times and it never fails to make me laugh. The acceleration is face-flattening. The exhaust note is crowd gathering. The 2″ longer hood is obviously concealing a hand-built AMG monster of an engine and it is awesome! There is nothing not to love about driving the AMG C63!
However, I had a little trouble loving it in heavy stop and go traffic. I just wanted to go fast! The car can be tames a little in Comfort mode but you can still feel it trying to GO!
Parked in a big group it is not immediately obvious which is the C450 and which is the C63. The both have an aggressive stance, beefy bumpers and sound great! Discerning customers will see the single lamella grill and different lower front bumpers as obvious differences.
For my daily commute the C450 AMG is plenty of car. I cannot imagine a part of my day where I needed more power, more exhaust, more brakes or Race Start! I enjoyed the AMG components but felt comfortable in traffic.
For $20,000 more than the C450, the AMG C63 needs to deliver something crazy. It needs to stand out hugely from the C450. It needs to look different, sound different, feel different. It does. Motor Trend recently gave it 4th place in the best Drivers’ Car competition. It was the highest ranking for a sedan because this sedan is a MONSTER!
So, daily driver: C450. Daily driver for crazy people: C63!
