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.

I've avoided reading this thread because I read the title and thought 'you gotta be kidding'. Now that I'm done reading it, I feel slightly nauseous and I think I have the runs.

I think I'm going to develop a random 'vs' generator where I just take every car off the R&T/CD/MT test library and put it in the database. Then you click the <random> button and a new thread will appear "Camaro SS vs Insert Random Late Model Vehicle Here. Then we can invent some racing encounters claiming the Camaro won and then fill in all of the test stats over the next 2 to 3 pages and then a mod can come close it.

OP, I don't mean to sound hostile if you were sincere- but really?

The whole thread is BS folks. Either it's a joke, or a lie.

Yea, cross shopping an AMG vs a chevy half it's price.

Either way, wanna bench race? Go ahead. The AMG would STOMP even an SS MT.

Not to mention that afterward, it would STILL ride better, offer tons more amenities, have 10x nicer interior . . .

Hey OP, shouldn't you consider a Veyron and maybe an original Corvette Grand Sport or at least original L88 while you're at it?

No...you stated something completely false about a car that's superior to the Camaro in performance and then told another forum member that your "experience" is gospel and that he should buy a Camaro based on said "experience."

So, everyone started chiming in not to pick a fight...but simply to point out to how misinformed you are. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, however. I do agree that the Camaro looks better.

Exclamation

The thread isn't BS, and I wasn't really comparing performance, so I didn't mean the "VS" part to mean put them up against each other at a drag strip.

I was merely thinking outloud... there is a price difference and I can see how most people will be confused as why I'm looking at both these vehicles as they seem like, well, apples and oranges.

I should have known better than to post, as most people would either not read my post, just the title or read my post and not care because in their head all they see is CAMARO VS C63...

Both cars are capable of making me completely happy... (ME)

... i'll just wait to drive a Camaro to make my final decision, then I'll just wait until it's time to buy and see if anything has changed between the two. Maybe I won't even care for either car when it comes down to finally buying myself a car.... we'll see.

Anyways, my mistake for making this thread.

edit: maybe it will make more sense if I said the Camaro has more of a sentimental value variable to it...

No my experience isn't gospel whether the guy couldn't drive(like others have said) or just didn't want to push it doesn't make my experience any less then what it was which wa an encounterment. And have you ever driven in downtown chicago in traffic? It's not that hard to get left behind. And go look at my first post where did I say in it that the OP should buy a Camaro? Simple I didn't I just told an experience I had with one and said it's not fair to compare a coupe to a sedan. Thats something I never do. But I once never said he should buy a Camaro. Thanks for having a reading comprehension.

Different cars, different classes: Luxury sport vs. Muscle car?

Having owned several luxury cars, you will need to get that out of your system before you settle on a Camaro. There is zero comparison between the two cars at any point of the driving experience. IMO, standing still the Camaro looks better, but that is the only place the Camaro is better. But, if you do buy the Merc, by the longest extended warranty you can afford. You will need it. It isn't even the frequency of repairs that will kill the pocket, but rather everything that can go bad on that car will cost a small to moderate fortune to fix...
