the C63 amg is already dated and it just came out (coupe that is). Mercedes is moving away from the 6.2 L NA V-8 and to the M157 across the board. While the current c63 has some astronomical numbers, it weights ~3900 lbs, peak torque @5000 rpm, LSD is an option, and stock rear tires are 255's.... c'mon.

The power is meaningless, the bimmer has it beat on so many levels. So when the next m3 comes out with ~400 lb-ft kicking in at 2000 rpms, with the suspension and tranny to maximize it, the c63 won't have a chance.
