C63, definitely, but not in that color. I'm only in my thirties, maybe when I'm much older the CLK would be more appealing to me. Both very nice cars tho. I enjoy that aggressive look of the C63.

Don't switch now Mo!

I'd take the C, personally.

A co-worker recently got a CLS63 with whatever they call the performance package (comes with big red calipers, etc) and after having a ride recently, it's a true muscle car.

How come the C doesn't come with the biturbo V8 like the CLS, and presumably the higher-end models?

The C chassis and gearbox couldn't take the torque the engine putout.

Is one of these cars "higher" than the other? Technically the C63 BS is a new version of the CLK BS right?

The CLK Black just looks more serious... while the C63 Black looks like somebody put an aggressive body kit on a C-coupe.

A local guy just got the CLK in white, looks sick.

How do they compare performance wise?

CLK has 500HP and 470ft lbs of torque

C63 has 510 HP and 458 ft lbs of torque.

The C63 will shift quicker thanks to the MCT, but it should be really close.

The turbo smaller displacement V8 is going to replace the larger NA 6.2L V8 as "the" AMG engine.

I drove both.. and actually I prefer the naturally aspirated engine better. It just sounds amazing. I know Mercedes claimed they made the turbo one sound just as good... but it doesn't. :( When it comes to modding potential tho... I guess the turbo engine has more potential tho. But in stock form... I just like that 6.2L V8! :cool:

I would take the CLK. I like the C and all but the CLK is just more appealing to me imo. I hate how amg started putting the square exhaust tips on the back, I liked the ovals much better..
