The BMW M3 vs.
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG debate always went something like this.
If you want precision and care about track time, there's no question you'll want the M3. It's sharper, more precise and better balanced. Pretty easy win, really.
The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG changed the game though because while it may have been considered more "pig-ish," it's still loved the world over because it is simply a hoot to drive.
So, how is that dynamic NOW that the all-new M4 is out and about? Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe takes a look into the matter and measures up where the BMW and Mercedes stand.
It's the battle of the performance coupes as BMW's new M4 takes on the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. Can the M4's turbocharged 425bhp six-cylinder petrol engine compare to the 6.2-litre V8 of the C63 AMG? Steve Sutcliffe has the keys to both, and he's about to find out.
