When Mercedes puts an AMG badge on its cars, people tend to take note. After all, the current Mercedes-AMG C63 is powered by a hand-finished, highly potent twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine.

And this performance car even offers you a choice of power outputs: the standard C63 ‘makes do’ with 469bhp, while the more expensive C63 S can unleash up to 503bhp. In both cases, drive goes to the rear wheels through a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

You can also add variety to the C63’s list of key attributes, because it's available to order 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? Well, the BMW M4 goes head to head with the coupé and convertible models, the saloon vies for your attention alongside the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and the estate lines up in competition with the Audi RS4 Avant
