The importance of social media is constantly growing for car makers. So much so that, for example, it’s a big deal for AMG hitting 2 million video views on YouTube. And as it’s fashionable these days they sent out one of their hottest cars to do some celebratory drifts. Youtubers love these sort of things. This video is particularly interesting because the venue they chose for the action is Laguna Seca, and the notorious Corkscew corner. The car is a C63 Coupe.
The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine in the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG coupé delivers a maximum output of 336 kW (457 hp) and peak torque of 600 Newton metres for outstanding performance: the coupé is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and the top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited). With this kind of specification, the new two-door vehicle is set to take the lead in its segment.
