2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe to get M157 5.5-liter turbo
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is where Mercedes-Benz begins bitch slapping BMW across the performance sphere. While BMW is busy playing around with efficient dynamics Mercedes has just upped the ante confirming with Insideline that they intend to put the twin turbo 5.5 liter M157 twin turbo V8 into the C63 Black Series coupe. Mercedes is not playing around, this car will quite simply annihilate the M3. It is likely the M5 will be its victim as well and anything else in the BMW lineup. Mercedes does not hold back its cars to maintain an artificial hierarchy and with the black series label is producing some of the best performing and most hardcore German performance vehicles in existence. AMG just made a lot of people over at BMW very nervous, well done Mercedes, you have earned our respect and then some.
