Finally, the 2008 BMW M3’s rival has broken cover. Shown earlier last week, the Mercedes C63 AMG was unveiled ahead of its Frankfurt debut, mostly to distract the attention of the auto enthusiast world that is focused on the launch of the new 2008 BMW M3 in Europe.
Mercedes has always offered more power than the M3. The previous-generation C-Class AMG produced a total of 376 horsepower. The previous-generation BMW M3, on the other hand, developed 333 horsepower. Still the Mercedes C-Class AMG never received much attention due to its boring and dead design. Well now things are about to heat up.
Mercedes is back with its all new and beautifully designed 2008 Mercedes C63 AMG powered by a 6.3 liter V8 engine that produces 451 horsepower with a torque of 443 lb-ft. The car has the ability to do 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 155mph. The design is just brilliant.
BMW, yet again, offers less power with its 2008 BMW M3’s 4.0 liter V8 engine producing 420 horsepower. The car has a 0-60mph time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. However, we doubt Mercedes will be able to offer the same agile handling as the BMW M3. It is, after all, the ultimate driving machine.
We’re just wondering what you think is hotter? The 2008 BMW M3 or the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.
