The aim of this road trip was to travel to 3 different cities from Scunthorpe in one day. The choice of vehicle was the Mercedes C63 AMG, which is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.2 litre V8 engine, with an output power of 450 break horse power with a staggering 440lb of torque. As soon as you turn the key, the car barks into life and the ground starts to shake.
Three of the cities was Sheffield, Manchester and Birmingham. With a mixture of country roads, motorways and inner city driving gave me an impeccable impression on how amazing it is as an overall car. The car has options of Comfort, Sport plus and Race mode. Comfort mode is excellent when you are beating through traffic in busy cities. When you are hooning around the country roads and motorways you want Sport plus activated. Making the gear box snappy during gear changes while the suspension adapts itself to a harsher ride, for better handling when taking the tight twisty bendy roads. Also, with the complimentary V8 sound track blasting through the exhausts.
In conclusion the C63 is a very capable car as a cruiser, while being a beast at the same time. The new regulations forced the productions to stop on the 6.2 V8. Now Mercedes have to create Turbocharged vehicles with lower displacements. There is no replacement for displacement. It may be the end of an era at the factory, but not for me as I will never sell this European Muscle Car.
