For The C63 accelerates rapidly at all revs, with no flat spots. There’s also immense grip, while the super-quick steering means the car darts into bends, and that steering provides plenty of feedback.
Against The ride is firm and the car tends to bobble around over poorly surfaced back roads. It’s far more at home on a racetrack than battered back roads or city streets.
What Car? says
The C63 is an expensive beast, but you’re unlikely to see another one and the devastating handling and performance make it a tempting proposition.

Aside from the standalone C63 AMG models, there are two trims available for the C-Class Coupe. AMG Sport is the entry point, and it provides sporty styling goodies like 18-inch alloys, LED running lights and a sporty AMG bodykit. Luxury kit includes part-leather-effect upholstery and front and rear parking sensors. AMG Sport Plus models have even sportier styling, including red seatbelts and red interior stitching.
Of the mainstream engines available, our favourite is the smooth and powerful V6 petrol in the C350. Yes, it’s expensive to buy and run, but the cheaper four-cylinder engines are disappointingly unrefined. Plus, it’s not hard to see the appeal of having a big V6 in your luxurious coupe.
