The saying that “money doesn’t buy you happens” might be true, but it does buy you minutes of blissful music to one’s ear. In the case of this 6.2-lieter V8 German power plant stuffed in the C63 AMG, it is enough to put a perma-smile on anyone’s face. Thanks to a cat-less exhaust system, the beautiful sound from the 451-horsepower AMG V8 come to life. The signature throatiness sound of German engineering is always worth its weight in gold or in this case just under $70k CAD. With a 0-60 mph time of 4.5-seconds, any gear head would want nothing more than a big red Christmas bow-tie on this beast and the ownership of course.
Enjoy the next two minutes of your 2012 year despite the 12/21/12 Mayan calendar fear – you’ll live and thank us for this moment later.
