I’m not a Mercedes-Benz guy, and I never have been. Sure, its cars can be nice to look at and comfortable to be driven in, but very few of the tri-pointed star’s automobiles make my hormones sit up and beg. The exception to this rule has always been the Mercedes-Benz Black Series.

The latest Black Series car, the C63 AMG Coupe, is no exception. With 510 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque on tap, the sprint from 0 – 60 should take no more than four seconds, on your way to a governed top speed of 155 miles per hour. Only a handful will be imported into the U.S. when the car goes on sale here next March. As for the price, if you have to ask, then you’re not really a customer, are you?

      @Set, don’t get me wrong: I’d have to have stupid money before buying a C63 AMG Black Series. In fact, I’d add a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS and a Boss 302 Laguna Seca to the stable before I’d even think about the Merc…
