By placing their new 6.2L naturally aspirated V8 into the 'humble' C Class, then wrapping it with stylishly aggressive bodywork, Mercedes have made their entry-level saloon into a highly desirable supercar.
457bhp gives what now seems like a commonplace 0-60mph dash in 4 seconds, but in a car weighing nearly two tones, that is still a remarkable achievement! A new distinctive front end with reworked grille give the W204 version C63 an aggressive stance, so it can really compete in the styling stakes with it's super saloon competitors.
It may only be the first step on the 'AMG ladder', but for around £50k the Merc C63 gives you an awful lot of performance for your money.
Model was revamped in 2011 with speedshift transmission and TFT display.
