It is a must to view the video mentioned earlier that has almost a live soundtrack and shows a short burnout performance of the vehicle. You can see and feel the drive of it!
The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is a great car and RENNtech, an American aftermarket specialist, has come up last month with an equally great modification kit – the ‘C74′. A new exhaust from Akrapovic has a video presentation that shows the potential of their creation that has a 43 pound/19.5kg reduction in weight.

Want to feel what it’s like to drive on a racetrack? Well then, suit yourself… up. For every purchase or lease of a new Mercedes-Benz AMG vehicle, you will have an exclusive opportunity to race a real AMG car on a real racetrack, compliments of Mercedes-Benz and their dedicated tuning company AMG. Their main aim is to make owners aware of what their new car is truly made of, and what it is capable of outside of public roads.
This new perk of owning a Mercedes-Benz AMG car will start in the U.S. as early as on the first day of January next year. It comprises one full day of an adrenaline pumping track program that will teach owners the basics dynamics of performance driving. No less than AMG’s expert driving instructors will take you on an AMG Driving Academy learning coarse to teach you the basics of handling your car through custom mid and high speed exercises that’ll span the entire length of the race track.
The new program by Mercedes-Benz USA comes in time for the world debute of the 2012 CLS63 AMG, as well as the christening of Lime Rock Park as the third track to accommodate a new AMG Driving Academy season.
Sometimes, you just have to nip expectations or speculations in the bud to tame people’s over-excitement down before they grow out of proportion. Otherwise, you’re going to have a lot of disappointed fans out there who’ll be less than interested in your new toys. That is why both Mercedes-Benz and Pagani decided to make it clear to everyone out there that no—the up-and-coming Pagani C9′s V12 engine will have absolutely nothing to do with the current V12 that’s rocking the SL65 AMG Black Series. Although it’s AMG that is solely responsible for developing the engine that’s going to rid each and everyone of the Pagani C9′s competition, the tuner was quite steadfast saying that the engine they’re working on was something borne out of a Mercedes engine, and not necessarily something similar.
To end all rumors, AMG says the V12 that resides under the Black Series’ hood is capable of 670hp and 730lb-ft. That motor is a hyped up version of the V12 that’s powering the base SL65 AMG. The engine that’s screaming from behind the C9′s cockpit? That’s not the same engine, or any derivative of the aforementioned engines whatsoever. It’s totally different, and that is where their statement ends? So we’re all pretty much left guessing what it really is. But does it really matter once you’re inside the C9?
