What Car? says...
AMG has form for shoehorning ridiculous engines into sensible cars, and the Mercedes-AMG C63 S is no exception. While the standard C-Class has fuel-sipping diesel or CO2-cutting plug-in hybrid options, the C63 S’s power source is decidedly extravagant.
How extravagant? How about a hand-finished, highly potent, twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine? Despite having a potentially traction-troubling 503bhp under the bonnet, the C63 S is only available with rear-wheel drive, with power routed through a standard nine-speed automatic gearbox. Acceleration is predictably eye-widening, with a top speed of up to 180mph, depending on the version.
