I agree. The CTS-V coupe and the Benz C class coupe don't look better than their sedan counterparts... the Audi A5/S5 on the ohter hand is gorgeous (but slow).

I was sure the V8 had produced more than 481hp though and see the 2010 produced 518hp in the E class (AMG E63) so obviously the C class is detuned likely due to a cramped engine bay and more restrictive exhaust?

More obviously, the engine being "detuned" is due to marketing in a less expensive model, not due to any design or engineering restrictions.

No, was being lazy and should have referenced the earlier blown V8s not the TT V12.

The 600+ HP versions of the V12 are designated as a 65...ie S65...and start right at $200K.

The C class is the entry level Mercedes, like the 3 series is to BMW (until the 1 came along.)

Like Mercedes, they don't shove a V10 (M5) or V12 (760) into the M3 just because they offer it in their higher end models...and the M3 makes only 414 HP.

v10nut The overall lines look a lot like the M3. I like it for the most part those wheels don't complete the look very well.

Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Revealed



Quote:
Following hot on the heels of the C-Class Coupe, Mercedes' AMG division has revealed a high-performance version of the car. The C63 AMG Coupe gets the same 6.2-liter V8 borrowed from the sedan, making 451-hp and a serious 443 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a 7-speed Speedshift MCT transmission, this newest Benz can hit 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

But if you've got an AMG-type personality, then the AMG Performance package is the way to go with a modified engine that delivers 481-hp. Other upgrades include even more capable AMG brakes (painted red), a carbon fiber trunk lid spoiler, and an AMG steering wheel coated in Alcantara. AMG Performance Package equipped models shave a tenth of a second off to 60 mph, and raise the top speed from 155-mph to 174.

All models get a wider track with a more aggressive aero package, an upgraded suspension package, more direct steering, plus big 18-inch alloy wheels coated in 235/40/18 tires up front and 255/35/18 tires in the rear.

Keeping those tires gripped to the road should be a challenge, and making smokey burnouts all the more easy to achieve is a three-stage Electronic Stability Program that can be shut completely off.
