On top of that its more nimble with better steering, which I can personally confirm.
What part of this stock do you not understand. Why do you keep bringing up a tune. I never said anything about tuning or dynoing it. I'm talking about taking it out in stock form. It's a DRIVER'S race, whats so hard to understand about that. ohhhh forget it. Love the C 63 and be blind to everything I have presented it makes no diff to me. It's a great car, lets leave it at that.

Its not a drivers race. Like I said before, the worst numbers for the AMG are still better than the best for the SS.


Game over.

I agree junkie and I never once said the C63 loses to the Camaro everytime or anything along those lines. I simply stated an encounter I had with one and then Zeus and Cowley went off with all the benchracing stats. I just providing stats in my post to make a point that the numbers aren't that far off each other and depending on who is driving is the difference. Thats all I was saying. More then less I just wanted to express my experience against one. Thats all I'm saying, there was no need for Crowley or Zeus to start the attacks on me.

No attacks here, unless the truth hurts. Like I noted before, I was chiming in for the sake of the OP who wanted an honest comparison.

The truth is you want to keep talking about racing in a straight line when I already stated from my very first post that we were on the highway moving in and out of traffic. So all your straight-line numbers and not factoring in any other variables doesn't mean jack if one person can't handle the car like another car handles their's. Power means nothing when you just can't only drive in a straight line. WHAT'S SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND about my story. IT WASN'T FROM A DIG and it wasn't straight line driving.

Any Benz with AMG on the back is better than most American cars, high end German cars are superior !!!

If the guy couldn't drive sorry for him but he was hitting all the ins and outs just the same.

My point is, its a nice sedan but I don't think it runs as nice as a nice coupe which is what the Camaro is. Given they are about the same in performance. having 23 more TQ and 25 more hp and weighing 65 lbs more doesn't mean its just flat out a better performer and can't be beat by a stock Camaro, when more then likely it was a stock AMG also.
I thought C-63 AMG's were $189k I know CLS-63's are $200k and the only difference between a C series & CLS series is a CLS is a sedan & the C is a coupe. E-55 AMG's are $58k, maybe it was a E series AMG ?

C63 AMG Base MSRP 53k

But on average you'll see them at 60k+ with options and because they are a rare car they get marked up a bit.

Isn't the C63 an automatic? How hard is it to floor the gas pedal?

Now don't take this comment to encompass all Mercedes owners, but most I see are stuck-up looking girls or dorks who need that three point emblem for their status.

Camaro looks better IMO anyway.
