That the C63 is AMG’s finest moment so far is not in any doubt. It has a completeness to its dynamic repertoire that has eluded all other Mercedes AMG products.
Apart from being shatteringly quick and beautifully made, it’s also just a thumping good car to drive.
The not-so-good elements are the ride and the range (and they’re both quite serious issues), but the big question is: is the C63 good enough to beat the M3 overall? We believe it is.
While the BMW got the nod (by the slimmest of margins) when we first tested the two back to back in Germany, on British roads it’s the C63 that has more strengths.
The simple truth is that it is faster, steers better, feels more special and has a bigger, better appointed interior for just a few hundred pounds more than the BMW.
