Feature Flick: Mercedes Tantalizes with C63 AMG Black Series' Dark Side

Anger. Fury. Lust. These are all emotions elicited by the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series. And they are all emotions that you will feel upon seeing Mercedes' latest video of its monstrous super-coupe in action.
You should plan on having this video eating up at least 10 minutes of your time today, as you will want to watch the 1:44-minute clip at least five times over. The video is gritty and set to a dark, techno beat; melody is primarily provided by the C63 Black Series' sonorous exhaust note. As a refresher, the mean Mercedes is powered by a 510-hp version of the same 6.2-liter AMG-built V-8 that is found in the C63 and SLS AMG sports cars. A seven-speed automatic transmission sends all of that power to the extra-wide, 19-inch rear wheels. There is plenty of show to go along with the go, thanks to an extra-wide bodykit, tall carbon-fiber rear wing, and vented aluminum hood.
Putting all 510 hp to the pavement in one fell swoop apparently leads to exaggerated drifting, as the clip shows off below. We found out the same in our First Drive, calling the car "unhinged and wild." Because what fun would a corner be if you weren’t able to get the tail end out?
Check out the video below for all the tail-happy fun and delicious V-8 power you can stomach. Be careful not to drool on your keyboard...
