A hot blonde who flogs her Ducati 848 like a racehorse, million dollar scenery and a lifestyle that most of us can only imagine. This video for the new Mercedes Benz C 63 AMG Coupe has it all, and (surprisingly) even shows some footage of the car itself. I’m not good looking enough to own one, and God knows I don’t have the finances, but I’d sure like to spend an afternoon wringing one out on the roads in this video. I’m not particular, either: I’d be equally happy testing the Ducati 848 on the same roads.

If you’re in the market for the new C63 AMG Coupe, here’s what you need to know: the 6.3 liter V8 is good for some 451 horsepower, which is sufficient to get the coupe from zero to sixty in 4.4 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 miles per hour, which is plenty fast enough to get your takeout Sauerbraten home before it gets cold. Just in case you’re the type who wants his volume knob to go up to 11, the coupe will also have an optional AMG Development Package which boosts output to 481 horsepower, shaving a tenth of a second off of the base coupe’s zero to sixty time.

All C 63 Coupes come with Mercedes’ AMG Speedshift seven speed automatic transmission, which includes modes ranging from Sport Plus to Controlled Efficiency for maximum fuel economy. AMG re-works the suspension, steering and brakes, ensuring that the coupe can turn and stop as well as it accelerates. Mercedes isn’t discussing pricing just yet, but the last C63 Sedan started at just under $60k, so that should give you ballpark pricing on the new Coupe. Look for inventory to hit dealerships sometime in September.
