Perfect family cars? To those of us without kids – or an unhealthy obsession with films such as Drive – they’re perfect getaway cars.
Why so? Plentiful space for purloined valuables, the pace and precision required to effortlessly escape the law, and looks subtle enough to fox the casual observer. “What car were they in?” “Er, a blue one…”
Of course, subtlety has hardly ever been present in AMG history; audaciously smoking rear tyres and thunderous soundtracks are typically dish of the day. And dowdily restrained as it looks, the new C63 will – of course – oblige rapscallion tendencies.
