- 2) The 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S coupe can sprint from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds or less
The C63 S coupe is equipped with a lethal weapon seen in the new AMG GT-S, a car that we nominated as one of the best drivers cars of 2015. The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 unit replaces the exotic 6.2-liter V-8 in favor of two turbochargers that sit in the V of the engine, something that BMW came up with and Mercedes perfected. Although the engine is de-tuned it still remains one of the most lethal engines in the market with 503 hp in the AMG C63 S and 469 horses in the AMG C63 standard version. The 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S coupe can sprint from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds or less while able to top out at 180 mph if you happen to choose the S model, if you are on a tight budget the standard version will top out at 155 mph. This also makes it faster than the M4, the RS5 and the ATS-V.

Similar to the AMG GT and the Porsche 911 Turbo, the C63 S Coupe gets active engine mounts that soften and stiffen based on driving situation as well as an electronically controlled diff as opposed to the mechanical unit found on the standard version .
