When Mercedes puts an AMG badge on its cars, people take note. After all, the current Mercedes-AMG C63 is powered by a potent twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine. There’s even a choice of power outputs: the standard C63 ‘makes do’ with 469bhp; the more expensive C63 S can unleash up to 503bhp. In all cases, drive goes to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

You can also add variety to the C63’s list of key attributes; you can order one in every bodystyle the standard C-Class comes in. That means saloon and estate for those who need practicality, and coupé and convertible for those who don’t.

What are its main rivals? The BMW M3 goes head to head with the saloon version, while the M4 goes up against the the coupé and convertible. Depending on which bodystyle you're after, you might also consider the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio or Lexus LC 500.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth review of the C63 in all its versions.
