And just for the record let me clear this up. I'm not saying the C63 isn't a better car then the Camaro, because it is and it should be when you are going to spend around 70,000 to get one. Thats stricker with some options on top of the mark-up the dealers put on them.

All I'm doing is stating an encounterment I had with one, by no means does that mean the Camaro is faster or a better performer. I'm saying its possible that someone in a Camaro can out perform someone in a better car. You can have a ferrari and if you don't know how to drive or handle the car can be beat by a modded honda. All I want to say is that yeah on paper a superior car should win everytime, but the simple fact remains that not everyone can do what the car is meant to do. Thats all I'm saying.

Sorry I shouldn't even told me story, because its not like it was a true race when you are flying around downtown chicago with traffic damn near bumper to bumper.

He couldn't follow and move like I could, I could care less about the 1320 you are quoting. and where did you get your numbers even mercedes doesn't quote those.

http://www.mercedes-amg.com/usa/inde...oom/models/c63

yeah check it out before typing false info.

I think you are confused, those sound more like the specs for the big S63. The C63 is indeed 3900 pounds, hits 60 in around 4 flat, and low 12s in the 1/4 mile, we won't even talk about handling.......

not confused next time go to the link. Those are stats taken right off out the web-site. go check it out. And the I make a mistake on the weight, I took the total weight from off the web-site not curb.

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.
Oh the Irony.

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...

If the Camaro is sentimental to you than go ahead and pick one up. Its a great car for that type of thing and its probably why it was built.

But your right that your post does look funny to people because they just tend to read the title... thats what this section is for. But to be honest with you, if I could afford a C63 AMG right now, I'd be on that Forum posting up pictures of my new car.

Well let me apologize then for my part in the downward spiral the thread took. Those of us who have been around here for a while have become a little jaded in the VS section of the forums.

They aren't really legitimate cross shopping vehicles. If you buy the Camaro- it will be for the completely emotional aspect of it. It is an extraordinarily sharp car that has a lot of history with it, most of it pretty good. You won't be cross shopping from a performance aspect. The Camaro likely has the goods to keep you happy, but the Mercedes has the edge.

That is a great pic. I saw it and went wow- then literally the next website I looked at had the new pictures from hubble:

Sorry OP you can have your thread back now


Knowing the Camaro has more of a sentimental value to it... does make this thread make more sense! JMO

Cool

Look at my post count, I don't post much so I'm not familiar with the way this section has become(deteriorated, if it has) so yeah.

We'll see how it turns out, if I decide against the Camaro for whatever reason, I'll be back and post them here anyways, just to share my experience

I don't like them, I have only sat in one and they're awesome but I'm not big on the styling... not for me. I have had an interest in the C63 since the new body style came out not to long ago... I just love it.

For now, I'll just keep saving, and planning until I'm ready to buy.


p.s. Saw a black one (camaro) today pulling into a McDonald's Sure was sexy, had not seen one on the street for a few weeks!

You dont like the styling on the M3? Jeeeeezeee I guess looks are subjective but I'd say the M3 is a much better looker than the C63. If you dropping over 50g's on a car, at least go out and test drive it and its competition

I might go test drive one, but BMW in general, they're styling has never made me go "daaaaaaayummm" lol, I might test drive one for fun, but if I'm not big on the styling why even bother?

Great machines though.

Yes they can, I've seen videos of them, they're beasts, but at that price I'd prefer to just take a ZR1
