    After having a couple of Terminators, Built/Blown 2v, 89 project, and various other things I thought I'd go a different direction. SVTP is still my home forum so thought I'd share it here!

    Picked up a 2014 C63 AMG 507 Edition. N/A 6.3L DOHC 507bhp, 7spd multi-clutch, RWD with LSD, and a glorious exhaust note! This is essentially a German Mustang. I knew nothing about them 3 weeks ago and brought it home Yesterday. Loving it so far, hopefully I don't get banned!

    Very nice. Huge fan of AMG muscle!! Had an 05 e55 myself. If you ever want to mod look up weistec. Products are excellent

    Yessir! ARH and Weistec blower kit already on the radar. The 507 does get a forged bottom end, so eventually will be ready for some boost!

    A nearby dealer had a 700hp supercharged "base" C63 AMG I was going to check out if this one fell through, I bet they are sick. I'm ecstatic with this so far, feels so much faster than I expect ~420whp to be. I think it should run high 11's as-is if I'm not mistaken?

    Nice! They indeed sound like American Muscle. The other day I was at a gas station and heard this car coming; as I was opening the gas cap literally thought "what an amazing exhaust note... is that a Mustang???" (all of this in my mind as I was now lifting the pump lever). Then realized what it was as the c63 passed by. It sounded amazing. Enjoy it OP :beer:

    Two thumbs up. I had a rental C63 a few years back and loved it. Beat the SHIT out of it and returned it with the check engine light on smelling of oil. These are awesome cars, enjoy!!

    You see, these "older" cars look so much better than all the new stuff out there.

    Awesome

    Thanks all! I just took it for a spin and quick rinse(1500mi road trip brought it home). It's such a calm collected driver that is still a blast to hear when you hit the pedal. The interior is quite sensible too, not the usual German weirdness just to be different. It really brings a smile in much the same way my terminators did!
