Mercedes C63 AMG vs. BMW M3 – Edmunds Comparison Test

Mercedes C63 AMG

“The M3′s V8 is as swift and sharp as a katana sword, while the C63′s V8 punches like a set of brass knuckles. And whereas the M3 sounds best when it’s being caned ruthlessly, the C63 barks like a beast when you simply twist the key and start it.”

“Despite boasting similar power-to-weight ratios, the C63 runs notably quicker than the M3 sedan in a straight line. It clicks off the quarter-mile in 12.5 seconds at113.7 mph, compared to the BMW’s 12.9 seconds at 111.1 mph, an advantage of 0.4second and 2.6 mph. Likewise, 60 mph comes up in 4.1 seconds in the Benz and 4.5seconds in the Bimmer.”

“But if powersliding hooliganism is more your style, then the C63 is your choice, since it’ll sustain a tail-out attitude around a corner until the steel cords show through the rear tires.”

“The 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG also crackles with character, something the M3 could use a bit more of.”

A lot of people are comparing the Mercedes-Benz C63 to the BMW M3. Everyone wants to drive this new car! For a long time, the M3 has been the top of the heap in the small and sporty category. Most reviewers are acknowledging that the M3 is still a great car, very balanced and capable, but the consensus is that the C63 is more fun! Take a look at the full review from Edmunds. If you are interested in ordering a C63 or being notified if one become available, please let me know!

Mercedes C63 AMG Motor Trend Review

C63 AMG

“Where this engine will trump the forthcoming M3′s V-8 is not with its 30-plus extra horsepower, but with its titanic 148-pound-foot torque advantage.”

“Turn-in is quick, effort builds naturally with cornering intensity, and the chassis responds in ways that would make a blindfolded Bimmerphile surprised to find a three-pointed star on the airbag cover.”

“Perhaps the most intoxicating aspect of car is its engine note-pure NASCAR stocker outside (it’s impossible to believe this car passes the 75-dBA Euro noise regs), just enough mechanical music inside.”

2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG vs 2008 BMW M3 vs. 2008 Lexus IS F – Motor Trend Comparison

2008 Mercedes C63 AMG

The 2008 C63 is currently in production for release in April. It has drawn a lot of interest and I am very excited about how well it has been reviewed. While the C63 came in second in this Motor Trend comparison, it is obvious that they loved the car and had a blast driving it.

“Hurtling the C63 down the quarter mile is like firing a Government Model Colt 45. The result is rewarding in an explosive sense. Mercedes-Benz quotes 0-to-60 in 4.3, but just the right launch technique yielded a best time of 4.1 seconds. That’s on par with 8.0-liter Dodge Vipers of just a decade ago.”

“Two areas stand out here: seats and steering wheels. In keeping with its ballsy nature, the C63 has firm, thickly bolstered front buckets….Everyone loves the Mercedes’ steering wheel. It’s squared off at the bottom, like a DTM racer’s, is thickly padded with dimpled leather at the handgrip areas, and has easy-to-reach shifter paddles.”

The Bad Benz won a lot of hearts. It’s the quickest in a straight line, second fastest in road-course work, and stops the shortest, too. The C63′s fierce accel and Howitzer exhaust note are reason enough to own it. This sophisticated, four-wheeled pit-bull spews emotion, knows what it is, and won’t care if everyone likes its edgy nature or not.”

C63 AMG – MotorTrend Magazine


“This machine grabs you the minute you light the motor, and the four big exhaust pipes erupt. It gurgles to the delight of everyone, inside or outside the car. Let off the throttle, and it burbles on the overrun.Wonderful.”
