Merc’s C63 Black Series sounds evil

Video: This is the most terrible and glorious sound you will hear today… AMG lets rip

Mercedes-Benz has tweaked it's high-torque naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 engine for its halo C63 AMG Black Series; that ominous suffix signifying Merc's prized halo C-Class Coupe.

That V8 features forged pistons, connecting rods and a lightweight crankshaft that all come courtesy of the SLS AMG supercar. Mercedes says the qualities of this big lug "arouse unadulterated passion in the driver". In fact, Merc says "the jewel in the crown is the emotive, hallmark AMG eight-cylinder sound from the AMG sports exhaust system."

Mercedes is right, if of course, the emotion they're aiming for is sheer terror. We've just found this video of the Merc's V8 clearing it's lungs...

Now share it...
