I was recently in Stuttgart, Germany visiting Mercedes-Benz and too the new SLS AMG Gullwing for a spin around the track. Besides its blistering fast acceleration and road-hugging handing, the sounds that the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG makes are just downright scary. It’s almost like a real beast trying to scare the crap out of you.
Benz engineers took the same approach when extracting the sound out of the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series.While we have no actual video of the new AMG model in action, the guys at Road&Track managed to grab some sounds of the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series revving its engine.
Be warned, the following video does not contain any burnouts or drifts – it’s just one of the scariest sounds you’ve probably ever heard from a car.

Refresher: Power for the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series comes from a 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine making 517-hp at 6,800 rpm with a maximum torque of 457 lb-ft at 500 rpm. The engine gets forged pistons, conrods and crankshaft, a new engine control unit and a 50 percent bigger oil cooler. Mated to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission with four ESP control settings and can go throw the cogs in 100 milliseconds in the sportiest Sport Plus and Manual modes, the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series run from 0 to 60 mph comes in just 4.2 seconds.
