Clarkson: head to head in the C63 AMG Black and M3 GTS
The Merc C63 Black and BMW M3 GTS both have a hardcore brief, but which is better?
Posted: 18 Mar 2012
Let's start with the BMW. Underneath, it's not really an M3 at all. The steering set-up is different, the suspension is different, the exhaust is different. The inside is different too. Instead of back seats, there is some scaffolding, and, instead of glass, the windows are made from Perspex.
And then there's the engine. It's a 4.4-litre V8, which means more power, more torque and more speed. Nought to 62, BMW says, takes 4.4secs. Flat out, you'll be doing 190.
